The brainchild of the Marriott group and hot hotelier Ian Schrager, Edition is a new lifestyle and hotel brand that opened its first property in Oahu, Wahiki, late last year. Hot on its hedonistic heels is the second Edition Hotel, this time round a little closer to home in Istanbul, Turkey. Drawing on both Eastern and Western influences, the hotel – found in the city’s trendy Levent district – features an Ottoman-style dome entrance and comprises 77 guest ‘lofts’ (each averaging 480-square-foot in size), a penthouse suite and a restaurant by Cipriani. A 20,000-square-foot spa by ESPA, nightclub, private movie theatre and event space rounds things off nicely, with traditional Byzantine touches given thoroughly modern twists throughout. There’s nothing foolish about this April opening.
