Marriott's Edition to launch new hotels across 4 continents in 2018

The Times Square Edition is set to open in mid-2018 with 457 guestrooms.

With seven new properties, Marriott International's Edition brand is scheduled to launch across four continents in 2018 and has many more in its pipeline. Created through a partnership between Marriott and boutique hotel creator Ian Schrager, the Edition brand is slated to grow exponentially from a collection of four to eleven properties by the end of 2018.

Following The Sanya Edition’s launch in December 2016, Edition’s Asian presence is scheduled to expand with two additional properties opening in Shanghai and Bangkok in 2018. In addition, the brand’s second and third European hotels are set for launch in Bodrum and Barcelona. Edition will open its first outpost in the Middle East in Abu Dhabi while the brand plans to increase its U.S. presence with two properties in New York’s Times Square and West Hollywood.

The brand’s expansion is expected to continue with the addition of nine further hotel launches planned across five continents by 2020, reaching a 20-property portfolio by the end of the decade and many more to come.
