The former Berners Hotel in Fitzrovia, closed since 2006, was bought by Marriott International in November 2010 and became the London Edition when it opened in 2013. The historic grade ll listed Berners Street building has had a £33 million makeover to become a luxury lifestyle hotel under the Edition brand, created by Marriott in partnership with legendary American hotelier Ian Schrager. The building, which was originally built in 1835 as five separate houses, has had its facade restored to its former glory and the interior extensively refurbished to create a stylish 175-bedroom hotel. David Taylor, currently general manager of the Hoxton hotel, has been appointed general manager. The Edition brand aims to be the ‘antithesis of a chain’, characterised by personalised and unique design spaces and modern service. And the London Edition is set to be the first of many new Editions with ten more hotels planned in cities worldwide including Miami and New York, Beijing, Bangkok and Abu Dhabi.
