Marriott International, Ian Schrager and KKH Property Investors are scheduled to open a new property in Barcelona, Spain in 2017. To be called Barcelona EDITION, the 100-room hotel will be located in the Ciutat Vella district, close to the Cathedral of Barcelona and nearly adjacent to the Santa Caterina Market. The hotel will also be near many of the city’s landmarks, including the Picasso museum, Santa Maria del Mar church, Palau de la Musica and Paseo de Gracia.
The project will encompass a total transformation by the Office of Architecture in Barcelona – OAB (Carlos Ferrater Studio) – of an existing office building into a hotel co-created by Ian Schrager and Spanish designer Lázaro Rosa-Violán. The space will have three restaurants, along with a lobby space, club and rooftop bar area.
Future EDITION hotels are planned for Sanya, China (2016), Bangkok (2017), Abu Dhabi (2017), Shanghai (2017), Times Square (2018), West Hollywood (2018), Reykjavik, Iceland (2018), Bali, Indonesia (2018) and Dubai (2019).
