          Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
          industrial Britain had their most desirable
          neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
          Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
          citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
          grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
          crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and

          This is ranked 53 of 147 in Edinburgh. I would have expected better for a Waldorf. Are people's expectations unrealistically high for the price paid or is the ranking fair?

          It is worth the five stars. Some unreasonable guests have a misplaced sense of entitlement to quibble. The service at the Edinburgh Waldorf is superb and totally due to excellent management, staff training and recruitment.
