With seven new properties scheduled to launch across three continents, and many more in the pipeline, 2018 will mark a pivotal moment for EDITION.
Created through a partnership between boutique hotel innovator Ian Schrager and Marriott International, the EDITION collection is set to grow from a four to 11 distinctive 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, while its US presence will be boosted 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.
“All of the EDITION hotels are unique, original and one of a kind, embedded with a sense of time and place,” said Ian Schrager.
