Edition makes Middle East debut with new hotel in Abu Dhabi
The hotel has 198 guest rooms and suites and 57 residences
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.
The hotel has three signature restaurants created by chef Tom Aikens.
Marriott currently operates Edition hotels in New York, London, Miami Beach, Barcelona, Shanghai, Sanya, China, and Bodrum, Turkey. Future hotels are underway in Times Square, New York and West Hollywood.
