          Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
          industrial Britain had their most desirable
          neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
          Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
          citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind

          This is ranked 53 of 147 in Edinburgh. I would have expected better for a Waldorf. Are people's expectations unrealistically high for the price paid or is the ranking fair?

          It is worth the five stars. Some unreasonable guests have a misplaced sense of entitlement to quibble. The service at the Edinburgh Waldorf is superb and totally due to excellent management, staff training and recruitment.
