Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh

Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian has undergone a luxury relaunch following a £24 million investment and renovation programme to bring this landmark Scottish property into the Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts portfolio.

‘The Caley’, as it is affectionately known among Edinburgh locals, has embodied the very best in Scottish hospitality for over a hundred years. Situated at the west end of Princes Street, this former Victorian railway hotel nestles in the shadow of the historic Edinburgh Castle and is just a two-minute walk from the designer stores and fashionable bars of George Street. 

With two exquisite restaurants operated by Michelin-starred brothers, Chris and Jeff Galvin – The Pompadour by Galvin and Galvin Brasserie de Luxe – luxurious bedrooms and the largest bathrooms of any hotel in Edinburgh, Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh - The Caledonian is also a fully licensed venue for Edinburgh weddings and civil partnerships, providing a magical setting for your special day.

Our hotel is also home to the UK's only Guerlain Spa, a relaxing haven in which one can unwind and escape with many exclusive and indulgent treatments as well as state-of-the-art fitness facilities.

Stay with us in this inspirational environment and experience True Waldorf Service.
