Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh, known as The Caledonian, is one of the most iconic and luxurious properties in the city.  The historic property dates back to 1903 and is located on buzzing Prince’s Street within a stone’s throw from many of Edinburgh’s most famous sights.  We were instantly enthralled by the grand lobby, accommodating check-in and welcome to the property, and stunning well preserved architecture.  Our beautiful two bedroom suite boasted two spacious en-sute bedrooms, three decadent bathrooms complete with deep bathtubs and Aesop amenities, and a cozy separate lounge and dining table.  The highlight was the spectacular views of Edinburgh Castle from every window of the suite.  We throughly enjoyed exploring and experiencing the captivating property from the original stained glass windows and grand stairwells to the five star spa and swimming pool and incredible dining experiences.  Their mouthwatering  breakfast including a la carte options, a generous buffet, and variety of Scottish specialties is a must try and we highly recommend the elegant afternoon tea and Scottish fine dining at their gourmet restaurant, Grazing.  We were within easy walking distance to the popular old town sights, Ross’s Fountain, plethora of museums, and quaint Dean Village.  A perfect choice for families looking for world class luxury at the heart of Edinburgh.

We loved staying with Nira Caledonia in Edinburgh’s beautiful Stockbridge neighborhood.  The luxurious boutique hotel is located within a historic building on a quiet tree lined residential street.  We loved the personable service, sumptuous and spacious guestrooms, and local quaint vibes of the surrounding area.  Just around the corner from the hotel you’ll find the famous Stockbridge Market, a variety of stylish cafes and boutiques as well as traditional pubs and eateries.  We also visited the area’s picture perfect Circus Lane and stunning Botanic Gardens.  You can start your day with a fresh and delicious continental breakfast at the hotel restaurant which also serves dinner and in-room dining.  A great option for a more local ambiance and an opportunity to escape the busy side of Edinburgh while still being close to the city center.

Native Edinburgh, located at the heart of the city’s historic New Town, is the perfect boutique property for your family’s city break.  We loved the spacious and modern studios complete with sleek master bedroom, open plan lounge and kitchen, and even laundry facilities.  The sofa in the lounge can easily convert into an extra double bed if you’re traveling with children and the optimal location means you have all of Edinburgh on your front step.  The reception and welcoming restaurant is a great space to socialize or grab a drink and an easy to go breakfast bag is provided for all guests each morning.  An affordable option for couples and families who crave the space of a larger suite without the hefty price tag.

Grand Hyatt Barcelona is one of the most luxurious hotels in the city. We loved the welcoming reception, sleek and stylish guest room, and world class five star facilities.  Our suite featured a sumptuous king bed, gigantic decadent bath and option for connecting room which was perfect as we were traveling with young children. After a long day of sightseeing the hotel’s state of the art spa was a welcome respite.  Not only was there a tranquil pool and relaxation areas but you can unwind in the steam room, sauna, or reap the health benefits of their cold plunge, salt room and more.  Our family also loved sunny mornings beside the outdoor pool surrounded by a verdant Spanish terrace.  Dining was huge highlight throughout our stay including decadent breakfasts, amazing tapas hour for Club level guests, and delicious dinner and cocktails at Sofia Bar.  Service was unbeatable at Grand Hyatt Barcelona with staff always on hand to ensure a seamless and luxurious stay.  Highly recommend for families and travellers looking for five star luxury and beautiful guestrooms away from the hustle and bustle of the center of town.
