I had stayed at the Hilton Caledonian on many occasions - but this was my first visit since the refit and upgrade to Waldorf. ON entering you will see attentive staff, more around than before, but it is not really a hint as to how well the hotel facilities have improved. MY room was modern, comfortable and well equipped, albeit with a small bathroom, but I do not live there, just visit, so it's not a problem. The public areas are simply superb - Scottish Class and comfort oozing out of the bar and large lounge that used to be a restaurant, enlarged and enhanced. A conversation with the Barman in Caley's showed me the pride the staff have in the hotel - and it shows in their work.
Well done Hilton - what was very good already became superb. I look forward to coming again soon.
- 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
