Edinburgh resident here. For York Place the tram would be a no brainer.

Also, the tram is more reliable time wise on the Haymarket - Airport section in rush hour - thats the section where it goes...

Then you've really missed out on Orkney. Really - a mate goes to Orkney, has bad weather and you get put off? That really doesn't leave much of Scotland for you to visit then :D

Aqua in Hong Kong?

Personally, Urban Angel on Hanover St does a good weekend menu. Also Malmaison on the Shore also has a very nicely priced brunch.

The Marriott is out closer to the airport. It's on the route of the express airport bus though, but still involves a 20-30 minute bus ride to and from the city centre. Probably not worth the hassle. ...

Wasn't thinking that at all ;)

I would suggest Arabic and Hebrew (since they sound similar IME :o) speakers should whisper everywhere they go. And look furtive. Exercises the public's paranoia :D
