Edition Hotels SVP and managing director Dan Flannery revealed at the Great GM Debate 2017 last year that the Edition Abu Dhabi will open in 2018. The Marriott International team has confirmed that the hotel is all set to open in Q4 2018 and recently opened its Barcelona hotel.

"I am proud to further the global expansion of the brand with this incredibly exciting project in Barcelona." Schrager said in a release, "The city represents a great, cultural epi-center of Europe, making it an ideal location for the region's newest Edition."

The Barcelona hotel consists of 100 rooms and suites, three restaurants, two bars, and a roof terrace with plunge pool.

At the soon-to-be-opened Abu Dhabi hotel, the general manager of the Edition Abu Dhabi is Stefan Soennichsen, Flannery whom he has worked with before during their tenure at Morgans Hotel Group. Prior to this pre-opening role, Soennichsen was the vice president of Damac Hotels & Resorts, and was also in the UAE from 2001-2005 with IHG and FRHI.
