Progress! Marriott's New Edition Hotel in London Gets a GM
UK hospitality news CatererSearch.com posted the announcement of David Taylor as GM of the new Edition. Currently, Taylo is the general manager of the Hoxton Hotel, known for its famous one pound hotel rooms. Yet while there's a GM now in place, the 200-room hotel, which will be built out of the old Berners Hotel, won't open for another year. (Meanwhile the Edition website still says 2012.)
Sad to see the Edition miss out on the Olympics fun, but this is very good news for the once-struggling Edition brand as a whole.
