This hotel is practically perfect. An elegant respite. It's pricey, but you certainly get what you pay for. The service is attentive but not intrusive and not at all stodgy. The facility is not at all dated, despite the fact that this is an old (historic) hotel. The furnishings and facilities are all up-to-date and comfortable. We ate at the Brasserie (separate review written for that) and it was fantastic. The rooms are good-sized and the bed was very comfortable. The hotel is walking distance to Edinburgh Castle and Hollyrood Palace, as well as the Royal Mile, but I was thoroughly unimpressed with that - beware of stores selling tartan goods that are not authentic. Ask the concierge about how to avoid that.
- 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
