In an opulent Georgian building just off Oxford Street, this Ian Schrager–designed hotel opened its doors during London Fashion Week 2013, and the super-stylish interiors bring together Dalí-inspired lamps, Donald Judd–style sofas and Art Deco furnishings. The dramatic lobby features hefty marble columns and a giant mirrored egg sculpture, and the 170 guestrooms are equally lavish, with walnut-paneled walls, faux fur throws and elegant recessed lighting. The sleek bathrooms come with walk-in rain showers and custom-made Le Labo beauty products. Feast on contemporary British fare at Berners Tavern, a grand see-and-be-seen dining room helmed by Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton. After dinner curl up with a quirky cocktail at the Lobby Bar, or enjoy live music and gin-infused punch bowls in the low-lit, oak-paneled Punch Room.
In the Area
The pick of London’s best restaurants are on the doorstep, from newbie hipster joint Social Eating House to Soho stalwart Kettners. Fill up on dim sum and Chinese pastries at Yauatcha or get a caffeine fix at Foxcroft & Ginger. Shopping thoroughfare Oxford Street is just around the corner, or hit Carnaby Street and Kingly Court for smaller independent boutiques and to browse Liberty, arguably the city’s prettiest department store, where creaky staircases lead to artfully designed rooms stocked with luxe labels.
How to Get There
I was recommended to stay at the Edition by a friend who comes here often for work. I stayed here for two nights while in London on business.
The hotel is beautiful, the rooms incredibly comfortable and warm in furnishings but not overly done. Very chic. Very comfortable. Just the way I like it.
I have had the opportunity to stay in many beautiful hotels and resorts both for work and play.. Amangiri / Amanjena / 4 seasons Flourences / to name a few... I find a place is always truly defined by its people.
The people have been fantastic - specifically: Celesta who was incredible when I checked in. There were some issues due to the woman who booked my travel at the office and Celesta was not only gracious, kind and patient but she also made it work out .. seamlessly. Celesta also continued to recognize me throughout my stay and was just absolutely lovely. I would come back to be checked in by her.
There are some lovely places to sit and watch.. drink a coffee.. or eat (omg the cod in the resteraunt is insanely amazing. you MUST have it. I took it without the shellfish and it was sublime). I met the lovely and beautiful and very friendly, Noemi. Coincidentally both of these amazing women are.. Italian! Noemi was so wonderful, she checked up on me made sure I had what I needed, chatted without being too much and also recognized me when I met her again in the PUNCH room. Again - she was so wonderful to me... I would come back, even if I was NOT staying at the hotel, to see Noemi and get her drink recommendations among other things. She was truly spectacular.
Thank you London Edition! I hope to see you again very soon
More like Marriott’s acquisition of W hotels along with Starwood. This place is just “Too hip” for us. Facilities are beautiful and terrace room(a planned “upsell”) is unusual for London. Old Berner’s resatuarant space gets anew look AND new ATTITUDE with this young staff. Imagine..........we were asked if we had “fun” during our stay.
Everything is a bit overpriced and not good value for money, unless you’re trying to make an impression for the Schrager jetset.
Had a meeting here, it is trendy but friendly. Very good service, quick and attentive - all looked good. Worth another visit. It is in a very good easy to reach location, ideal for Oxford Street as well as theatres.
Hard to believe that this hotel is part of the Marriott family! The public areas are stunning, with all of the old decorative details; yet the rooms are spacious and very contemporary. There's a great bar in the lobby where people hang out and play pool. The restaurant, Bermers, is popular. I can't say enough about the staff, who were extremely helpful. We were able to secure both an early check-in and a late check out. Best of all, it's in walking distance of the West End theaters. I would stay here again and look no further.
We stopped in here on a night out and were really impressed with everything.
They have some very unusual and amazing cocktails that have ingredients that take several days to produce - the clear pina colada was a unique and unforgettable experience - you have to try it - words are inadequate so go have one!!!!
Thank you to the team for making our visit very special.
Can't wait to return!!
