The Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh launches new corporate event space

The Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh- The Caledonian has launched a new space for corporate events.

Taking the property’s capacity for corporate dinners from 190 to 300, Peacock Alley is now available for a range of events.

Formerly a station concourse and ticket office of the Caledonian Railway, the space retains historic features and is being opened for corporate events for the first time.

In total, the hotel has 241 bedrooms and eight meeting rooms, with the new venue holding up to 400 people for a reception.

"The Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh is delighted to announce the launch of our iconic Peacock Alley as an event space for our clients," said Andrea Dhanasiri, luxury sales manager for the Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – The Caledonian.

"In the past we have had a lot of interest in the space, so it is great that we can now offer this to our clients from Monday to Thursday. The launch of this space has now increased our capacity to accommodate dinners from 190 to 300, which now allows us to welcome larger events to our hotel."
