Local Artisans Hired to Renovate Edinburgh’s Great Railway Hotel Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – The Caledonian

Lulu Group’s Twenty14 Holdings (the same group the recently bought Great Scotland Yard) announced its £85 million acquisition of Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – The Caledonian.

As part of their commitment to preserve the history and grandeur of the hotel, as well as adding value to the community, Twenty14 Holdings will create new jobs in the UK by hiring local artisans to renovate the hotel’s Historical Caledonian Suites, expand the already illustrious food and beverages offering and extend the reach of the hotel to include an additional 50 keys.

Built directly above the Princes Street Station building, The Caledonian has played host to well-known faces from around the world including film stars, entertainers and royalty. Today the hotel is the only part of the old station to have survived along with the cast iron entrance gates on Rutland Street. Guests are able to relive the rich history and heritage of this elite hotel, through its distinctive architecture, authentic surroundings and peerless hospitality.

The Caledonian is also home to two exquisite restaurants operated by Michelin-starred brothers, Chris and Jeff Galvin – The Pompadour by Galvin and Galvin Brasserie de Luxe. The hotel also houses the only Guerlain spa in the United Kingdom, offering the glamour and prestige of its esteemed Champs-Élysées counterpart.
