**A HotelChatter Exclusive**

Ian Schrager is not happy about the lawsuit that the owners of the Waikiki Edition filed last week--and which they put out a press release on yesterday.

Until now he's been referring all inquiries to Marriott but he's told HotelChatter he couldn't sit on the sidelines any longer.

Here is Ian's Schrager's official statement on the Waikiki Edition lawsuit:

I'm going to let the hotel, media and customer reviews speak for themselves. The Edition Waikiki, in its first 6 months, has received rave reviews. Marriott is the best operator in the business, but they can't stop the affects of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. While its true I didn't build, develop, manage or make all the final decisions for this property, since my name and reputation are involved, I want it to be as good as it can be. This lawsuit, I can only speculate on their motives, is not only completely transparent and frivolous, it is an abuse of process. We intend to defend ourselves vigorously."

Your move, M Waikiki.
