Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh

An article appeared in The Caterer about one particular of Scotland’s most effectively-recognized accommodations, The Waldorf Astoria Caledonian in Edinburgh. I reviewed the hotel in this short article. 

The lodge is apparently because of to alter from a Waldorf Astoria assets into a Curio Selection by Hilton Hotelsthis summer. This will give the hotel additional independence to operate as it wishes because there are considerably less rigid model recommendations amongst the inns in the team, which are acknowledged for their individuality. It will be intriguing to see if it influences the Hilton Honors details and cash fees without the need of the Waldorf brand name connected. 

This was the only Waldorf Astoria property in the United kingdom, while the Waldorf Astoria Admiralty Arch in London is thanks to open in 2025. Hilton is seriously lacking in true luxury properties in the British isles, with only the Biltmore and potentially the Conrad St James staying considered luxury hotels. The acquisition of SLH will resolve this difficulty when it transfers above from Hyatt. 

The 120-calendar year-aged Caledonia hotel was purchased by non-public fairness company Henderson Park and hospitality administration enterprise Klarent Hospitality past summer. The new entrepreneurs strategy to prolong the lodge by 2026 with the addition of practically 60 more rooms. 

The Caledonian was developed amongst 1899 to 1908 and was initially owned by the Caledonian Railway Firm, where the lodge normally takes its identify and nickname “The Caley” from. The lodge has hosted numerous popular friends including Her Majesty the late Queen Elizabeth II and former US President Barack Obama.
