The new London EDITION Hotel will be located on Berners Street, in the city's Fitzrovia neighborhood. This historically bohemian area was once home to writers, including Virginia Woolf, George Bernard Shaw and Arthur Rimbaud. Today, it is London's media and advertising hub. The heart of Fitzrovia is Charlotte Street with its numerous excellent restaurants, boutiques and galleries that will be just minutes from the hotel. Also within walking distance will be the British Museum, Theatreland and Soho.
While we're loving what we see from the first Edition in Waikiki we have to remember that 18-24 months is a long, long time away. Still, we think we'll be able to occupy ourselves until then. Meanwhile, Istanbul Edition is now set to open in early 2011.
