Ian Schrager and Marriott International's EDITION brand will open three new hotels this year, taking its sophisticated, minimalist-chic approach to luxury to Japan, Iceland and Dubai.
Each EDITION is designed to feel exclusive to the city in which it is located. “All of the EDITION hotels are unique, original and one of a kind, embedded with a sense of time and place,” Schrager said in a statement.
EDITION Hotels expects to open its first property in Japan with The Tokyo EDITION Toranomon, launching mid-2020. The 205-room property will house four food and beverage outlets, dedicated meeting and events spaces, a swimming pool, a fitness center and a spa, as well as EDITION’s much-loved Punch Room cocktail bar. Located in Tokyo’s upmarket Toranomon neighborhood, the hotel is expected to offer easy access to some of Tokyo’s most iconic sites, including the Tokyo Tower and Tsukiji fish market.
Later in the year, The Reykjavik EDITION in Iceland will debut in the city’s downtown area. Adjacent to the prominent Harpa Concert Hall, the hotel is situated in both a vibrant and scenic part of Iceland’s historical capital, Marriott said. The hotel’s 250 rooms and suites will be complemented with a private rooftop, nightlife space and ballroom. In addition, the hotel is expected to offer guests and locals a diverse culinary offering with three restaurants and a café.
EDITION will also expand its footprint in the Middle East, with the opening of The Dubai EDITION in late 2020, the second hotel in the UAE following last year’s launch of The Abu Dhabi EDITION. The property is slated to open in downtown Dubai, opposite the world-famous Dubai Mall. Plans for the hotel call for 210 rooms and suites, along with seven restaurants, swimming pools, pool deck dining, a spa and fitness center, in addition to event spaces with multiple meeting rooms and a ballroom.
Since launching the lifestyle concept in 2007, EDITION currently operates 10 hotels in New York, London, Miami Beach, West Hollywood, Barcelona, Shanghai, Sanya, Abu Dhabi and Bodrum. Marriott has another 15 hotels in EDITION’s signed development pipeline which, upon opening in coming years, should more than double the brand’s footprint.
