Edition Hotels has opened The Abu Dhabi Edition. It is the first Edition-branded hotel to open in the Middle East. The hotel has 198 guest rooms and suites and 57 residences. 

"It’s about an attitude, about a feeling rather than a look," Ian Schrager said on the hotel's launch. "Sophisticated public spaces, finishes, design and details serve the experience, not drive it," he added.

Designed throughout by Ian Schrager Company and Wimberly Interiors, the  five-storey lobby contains a curved atrium with a balustrade, echoing the movement of the water and mirroring the marine narrative of the development.
