The London EDITION
In a triumphant coalition between American hotelier Ian Schrager and the Marriott hotel group, the swanky EDITION brings a breath of fresh air to the historic site of Fitzrovia’s old Berners Hotel. Ornate ceilings, a pool table, and a comfy Punch Room reminiscent of an English gentlemen’s club pay tribute to the EDITION’s British heritage, but also sit happily alongside funky contemporary touches like the lobby’s reflective ceiling orb. Leading London chef Jason Atherton keeps things stylish, British, and seasonal under the chandeliers in Berners Tavern, where you can also pick up playfully named cocktails like Cereal Killers. Night owls can also head underground for alcoholic slushies at Basement club. Each of the EDITION’s 173 Canadian walnut wood rooms takes its inspiration from a luxury yacht cabin.
