What a delightful place! It is just down from the Waverly train station on Princes Street. Rooms were very large, warm and comfy. The bathroom was also large and modern. Ah, the towel warmer was a godsend as our weather was off and on rain with cool temps (50s F) and blustery winds. How refreshing it was to wrap a warm toasty towel around you after a long day on the Royal Mile and a brisk shower!
Across the street was the stop for all of the "hop on hop off" tour buses....out front was a stop for the city buses and the streetcars.....and, a block away were Rose and George streets for restaurants, pubs, and shopping. Like I said, it was a "perfect location" in Edinburgh.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian, or the "Caley" as it has become affectionately known among Edinburgh folk, was and still is the epitome of style and excellence. The large, rose-coloured Permian sandstone facade, quarried in Dumfries, dominates the skyline of the city's west end. The hotel has not only remained a focal point for more than one hundred years, but a symbol of the very best of Scottish hospitality. The Caley's pivotal position at the very heart of Edinburgh has always been its greatest asset. Created out of the 19th century railway boom, the five star hotel is looking to the future with confidence and pride in its ability to keep pace with the times. The hotel's reputation is as justified now as it was when the hotel first opened its doors in 1903. ... more less
