The Caledonian, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel Opens Soon in Edinburgh

The Caledonian, A Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, Edinburgh

As we reported earlier this year, Hilton has been hard at work on the $32 million renovation of The Caledonian, a landmark in the heart of Edinburgh for over a century. And soon, on September 15, the city-center landmark will morph from the Caledonian Hilton into The Caledonian, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel. This will be the first Scottish hotel for the upscale Waldorf-Astoria brand- as Scotland continues to go luxe.

Noteworthy are the new restaurants: The Pompadour by Galvin and the Galvin Brasserie de Luxe - the first Scottish restaurants for the Michelin-starred brothers, Chris and Jeff Galvin. (You can follow their culinary happenings on Twitter: @Galvin_brothers.) Stay tuned for more details as the official rebranding takes place next week.
