Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh

Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh, has recently undergone a luxury re-launch 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, just two minutes’ walk from the designer stores and fashionable bars of George Street. 

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