With seven new properties, including two scheduled to launch in the MENA, 2018 will mark a pivotal moment for EDITION.
Created through a partnership between boutique hotel creator and innovator Ian Schrager and the global hospitality powerhouse Marriott International, the EDITION brand is slated to grow exponentially from a collection of four to eleven properties by the end of 2018.
Following The Sanya EDITION’s launch in December 2016, EDITION’s Asian presence is scheduled to expand with two additional properties launching in Shanghai and Bangkok in 2018. In addition, the brand’s second and third European hotels are set for launch in Bodrum and Barcelona. EDITION will launch its first outpost in the Middle East in Abu Dhabi, whilst EDITION’s plans to increase its US presence with two properties located in New York’s Times Square and West Hollywood.
The brand’s rapid expansion is expected to continue with the addition of nine further hotel launches planned across five continents by 2020, reaching a 20-strong property portfolio by the end of the decade and many more to come.
The Bodrum EDITION will feature 99 guest rooms, suites and villas all with views of the Aegean Sea — some with private pools, balconies and gardens.
The Abu Dhabi EDITION will be situated in the downtown district on the waterfront of Al Bateen in the Abu Dhabi Marina. The hotel will feature 244 rooms and 57 exclusive residences. Unique food and beverage outlets include two signature restaurants, a gourmet market, lobby bar, tea lounge, pool bar and three-story nightclub.Add to Favorites
