After a long wait, the doors are finally open on the new Marriott/Edition Hotel, the London Edition.
The hotel has been closed for many years, the past three saw the Marriott hotel group take ownership and engage the design impresario, Ian Shrager to wave his magic wand over the place. Mr Shrager has an impressive CV with such London Institutions as the St.Martin's Lane Hotel and the Sanderson to his credit.
So, the London Edition is born, a luxurious 5 star hotel located on Berners Street, a stones throw away from Oxford Street, Regent Street, Bond Street, Soho, Theatreland and Piccadilly. It could not be better placed in Central London. The London underground tube stations of Oxford Circus and Tottenham Court Road are each easily accessible from the London Edition.
Now much of the old hotel is no longer visible, except for the beautiful ornate ceilings, in the Lobby area and Berners Tavern restaurant, the London Edition hotel has occupied this spot since the early 1800's, originally 4 townhouses, now all merged into one simply gorgeous hotel.
The hotel interior is simply stunning, modern, with a nod to the hotels past with some of the original marble pillars and marble walls and floors and as mentioned above, the lovingly restored ceilings.
Upon entering the hotel you will find the Lobby Bar, an impressive area where you can sit and choose a light snack from the Berners Tavern Restaurant, catch up on your emails via the communal business desk, all set up with Apple iMac computer, or, simply just sit, relax and enjoy a nice glass of something special the bartender whips up for you. Cocktails are the Lobby Bar speciality, why not treat yourself to a signature EDITION Shrub cocktail. The list is endless!
Each of the guest rooms has been furnished in either walnut clad or oak clad walls and floors, giving an almost nautical/cabin theme, this, complimented by muted colours as in the oatmeal George Smith tufted lounge chairs, cantilevered walnut or oak desks.
Gold Baroque leaf wall mounted photographs by Hendrik Kerstens. Luxurious linens adorn the beds with delicate silk rugs and drapery. Bathrooms have enclosed rainforest showers, with custom made Le Labo amenities.
Twice daily housekeeping, fully stocked minibar, complimentary bottled water, newspaper of your choice delivered to your room. Put all of this together and you have an exceptionally pleasant and amazingly comfortable guest room. For those of you interested in the technical side of things, all rooms have flat screen 46" TV's with high definition channels, movies on demand, complimentary WiFi, iPod docking stations.......It's what you want from a hotel isn't it?
On top of the hotel you have a stunning 195 square metre Penthouse with 3 furnished terraces overlooking Central London. The Penthouse has it's own separate lounge and dining room and can be used for small intimate gatherings or private dining.
The London Edition has a stunning restaurant, The Berners Tavern which is under the Direction of Michelin starred chef, Jason Atherton. The walls are adorned with many pieces of art, the high ornate ceiling is just spectacular. The surroundings are truly splendid with a wonderful bar and intimate seating arrangements.
The menu is contemporary British using the best produce the British Isles has to offer. If this is not enticing enough, then we don't know what is? The restaurant is open for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and Supper.
The fumed oak panelled Punch Room is a small intimate bar, a reservation only space, for 2, 4, 6 or 8 guests. As the name suggests, the drinks menu has been carefully crafted and guests can choose one of eight speciality punches, such as the Edition Punch, with an enticing mixture of gin, jasmine tea and oak moss! The music has also been carefully selected from Ragtime to Ska to Blues and Vintage Soul, a real eclectic mix, an altogether very relaxed affair!
