There’s nothing like a brand new luxury boutique hotel in the comfort of our very own backyard. This month has seen the opening of The New York EDITION in the Flatiron District’s historic Metropolitan Life tower, transforming what was once an office building into a stunning hotel inspired by the look of a city mansion with a lobby designed to evoke the feel of a grand living room. Borne of a venture between hôtelier Ian Schrager and Marriott International, Inc., the fourth addition to the EDITION family will certainly not be the last -- preceded by London, Istanbul, and Miami locations, the New York outpost makes way for the arrival of at least nine additional hotels across the US, China, Indonesia, and the Emirates over the next four years, bringing a new facet of luxury to the boutique hotel scene worldwide.
