Informative leisure reading from today's Wall Street Journal: Ian Schrager Targets Luxury Hotels With New York City Opening - WSJ

 

The [NYC Edition] hotel in the Met Life tower is the fourth from Edition, a venture between Mr. Schrager and Marriott International Inc. that has opened properties in Istanbul, London and Miami Beach. Marriott says it has agreements for a dozen more Edition hotels, including West Hollywood, Abu Dhabi and three in China.

    I am attracted to this brand.  I almost booked last month's London stay at the London Edition.  We went with County Hall instead (and not a disappointment in the least), because it was my Mom's preference.  (She gives me so much free reign with planning our mother/daughter travels that I am wont to defer to her preferences whenever possible, though would indeed have otherwise gone with the London Edition.)

     

    I received an email regarding the New York Edition property last month, and would like to try it, next visit.  It looks intriguing (though I wish they would post more than - one photo - on the hotel website).  I'm not sure how it would compare to the likes of the Mandarin Oriental at Columbus Circle, but

    1) It's in a good location, the uniquely fashionable and variant Flatiron, close to Chelsea, Soho and Lower Manhattan all with their signature characteristics, and I like the idea of not being in the exact center of things (why I suppose the Times Square properties don't entice me).

    2) Let's face it...  I'll never be able to afford (or would otherwise pay for) the likes of $750-1200/night for a room, so any luxury brand at that level of cost would have to be on points.  No CL, but when one stays on points, one has the cash to burn for meals out, and with so many good places to dine, not a detraction (though I would be curious to know if plats/golds are entitled to breakfast in the hotel restaurant in lieu of no CL?)  It looks to be a really great Marriott option for NYC (on points ).

     

    I am curious about how the ones in West Hollywood and Abu Dhabi (Abu Dhabi needs more Marriott options, imo) will turn out.  The offerings at the Istanbul Edition look pretty stellar.

     

    Good post and thanks for sharing the link.

      I had not heard about the Edition Hotel coming to West Hollywood.  Marriott definitely needs a hotel in the Hollywood area as Burbank and Beverley Hills are further out from many of the tourist spots.  It will be interesting to see how the Edition does in WeHo.

    We will be staying at the Edition in South Beach in a few months.. excited to see how it is. For $600/night (or 210k points for 3 nights for us) I'm hoping it lives up to the expectations

      I have stayed few nights at EDITION South Beach using my points 6 months ago.  It definately met my expectations and more.  We had 20 months old daughter with us so I felt we didn't "fit in".   Ended up shortening our stay from 5 to 3 nights.

       

      Ask for ocean view, they are fantastic!

        About your stay at the Miami EDITION.. I am looking to use points to stay at this property and am gold status. Did you have to pay additional (cash or points) for an upgraded room with an ocean view or simply ask for it? I'm not sure how strict this hotel line is.

    An interesting read, ssindc.

     

    Thanks for sharing this. I'm curious to read of experiences with this brand, as it's not content we see too much in comparison to other brands.

    My daughter is getting her masters at Les Roches in Switzerland in hospitality and tourism and is in London for the weekend. I used points for her to stay at the London EDITION since what Marriott is doing with upscale hotels and branding is a frequent discussion item In class.

     

    Her comments on checking into the hotel.... amazing,  spectacular service, great location, hip, cool. It must be something very special since this reaction is was way more than when we checked into the Bvlgari in Millan.

    Just finished up our stay at the Miami Edition (3 nights). Was upgraded to an Ocean view room and wow what a view! Loved the private beachfront and the pools/outdoor bar areas. For our Platinum gift, I received 500 points and complimentary breakfast each morning up to $105 (not including alcohol) that we took full advantage of. Highly recommend staying here if anyone gets the chance.

    Staying at the EDITION South Beach now. Breakfast is no longer a benefit for platinum's - I don't even think there was a platinum gift at all. It's a gorgeous hotel and I'm a total Marriott fanboy - but using 50,000 points (which equates to many thousands of dollars) should mean more benefits for my loyalty. I am in no way unrealistic about perks and am very thankful for what upgrades I do get, but please - we're paying for it ultimately - we are the road warriors who give 100, 200, 300! night's a year to this brand. I ultimately expected a lot more than an "oceanfront" room (set far back from the ocean) and ZERO recognition of my loyalty. I'll stay at the Ritz next time - whether I pay or use points - they treat elite's VERY well and I'm always blown away.

    I stayed at the Edition London in January.  It was one of the worst Marriott experiences I have had.  We had booked the stay to spend an anniversary weekend.  Received an email from the hotel prior to arriving asking if we were in for a special event and mentioned the anniversary.  Upon check in the front desk clerk said "Oh, I see you are here for a anniversary?"   That was the extent of the discussion about our special weekend.  The hotel contains no club lounge nor did it offer breakfast for platinum members.  All in all a very expensive hotel that does not give any amenities to platinum status.

     

    To contrast this stay last year we stayed at the Hyatt Churchill in London of our anniversary.  While not platinum at Hyatt I am one level below in their tier.  They asked upon check in if we were in town for a special occasion.  We mentioned our anniversary and when we returned from dinner we had a bottle of prosecco and chocolate cake waiting in our room courtesy of the hotel.  This was a night and day experience from what we received at the EDITION.

     

    The Edition is lacking in so many ways that it certainly is not worth the price compared to other hotels in London.

     

    To add to this terrible experience the hotel failed to credit my night stay.  So far 3 emails and a phone call and I still don't have the stay credited to my account.  I have provide my confirmation number, credit card cgarge  and even offered pictures of me in the room.  Apparently the hotel has to send the bill to rewards before I can get credit.  Avoid the London Edition at all cost.

    On June last year I've booked the Miami Beach Edition for my brother and his wife for 4 nights. As I never pay regular rates at any hotel I book, I was happily able to obtain a wonderful $244/night LNF rate - very cheap for the Edition.

    My brother was very happy with the hotel and everything it had to offer. A high class accommodation indeed!
