For the latest in transparency chic, check into THE GLASSHOUSE, a new boutique hotel in Edinburgh’s gentrifying East End. Perched atop the new six-story Omni entertainment complex, the 65-room Scottish inn furnishes floor-to-ceiling windows peering over the skyline and roof gardens. Contemporary room decor echoes the clarity theme in glass-walled bathrooms and slat-wood screens that separate sleeping from living quarters. Alter perceptions with a cocktail at the rooftop bar. From $370. (800) 457-4000,
