The London Edition, UK

Hotelier Ian Schrager is back with a bang, and I mean a big bang. This time he’s teamed up with Marriott Hotels to run this stunning reimagining of this once grand hotel. In line with Schrager’s ethos of multifunctional spaces the Edition doesn’t disappoint from its beautifully restored original decor to its bang up-to-date contemporary additions, the lobby satisfies everyone’s needs whether its for work, rest or play.
The individual elements such as the restored original features, custom contemporary furniture, oak or walnut panelled rooms and Vermeer paintings all sound like a potpourri of insanity. However it works, and works amazingly at that. Somehow the design and style of this hotel manages to impassion, stimulate and calm all at the same time.
Marriott is renowned for staff training but this venture with Schrager has taken it to another level. It’s not until you experience service like this that you realise just how much some other hotels are lacking, even the ones you had thought of as great in the past. Every member of staff we saw either acknowledged or engage us in conversation in some way. Every member of staff gave the genuine impression that they loved having you stay with them.
