Ok, this Edition sounds simply awesome. And Marriott Hotels and Ian Schrager are now fulfilling the wishes we've always had for the Edition brand, especially during the dark days when it lost control of the Edition in Waikiki, which was to open in big cities near us. (Selfish wishes we admit.)
Yet a part of us is now wondering if two Edition hotels in NYC is really necessary? It kinda feels like when W went big on NYC with 5 hotels on the island of Manhattan before they eventually ditched two. Does having two in the same city, not very far apart either, kill the exclusivity of Edition?
Of course, there can be ways around this. The Edition Times Square could be a totally different experience, with different decor and amenities from the Edition on Madison Avenue. In other words, the two hotels should not be alike. Good thing Schrager and Marriott have a few more years to figure this one out.
What do you think--are we crazy for thinking another Edition Hotel in NYC is unnecessary? Or do you think there are enough Editions to go around? Sound off in comments below!
