Caley gets Astoria makeover


Edinburgh’s Caledonian Hotel has had a £24m make-over and has just opened its doors to customers as The Caledonian, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel. This new addition to the world renowned Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts portfolio aims to continue the legacy of the Waldorf Astoria name, which promises guests an unparalleled experience when it comes to service. The restoration included the hotel’s public spaces, 241 bedrooms, spa,
restaurants and bars.
The reception and lobby have been stripped back to their former glory, with marble flooring, a sweeping staircase and a glittering chandelier. While at the heart of the hotel, there is the Peacock Alley. Here guests can relax and enjoy cocktails or a signature afternoon tea in a stylish and informal environment.
Michelin-starred brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin, have now brought their culinary expertise and talent to Scotland for the first time, with the opening of The Pompadour by Galvin and the Galvin Brasserie de Luxe at the hotel. The Caley Bar has also received a full make-over.
