Landmark Reborn: Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh, The Caledonian

52 of 72

Edinburgh’s former Victorian railway terminal has been reborn as an inviting escape, thanks to Waldorf Astoria. Among the brand’s achievements: converting the fifth-floor servant’s quarters into character-packed suites with sloped ceilings, and bringing in London’s acclaimed Galvin brothers to run the ambitious bistro downstairs. The many reasons to stay include unparalleled views of Edinburgh Castle and a well-vetted selection of scotch (ask for a guided tasting in the Caley Bar). $$
