    Our tour group put us up at the Waldorf Astoria. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Although the rooms are not large, they are cozy and the beds are really comfortable. The included breakfast was great.

    Staying in hotels with a century of history in the walls is something we really enjoy. Built by the Caldonian Railway you almost expect a steam locomotive to show up in the atrium. Spacious room on the 5th floor with a view of Edinburgh castle.

    West End
    Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
    industrial Britain had their most desirable
    neighborhoods 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
    sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along

    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.
