The Waikiki Edition Hotel is Now the Waikiki Modern

Waikiki EditionThe owners of the Waikiki Edition changed their locks overnight, according to The Wall Street Journal, installing new management, kicking out Marriott International Inc., even changing the signs. Marriott partnered with hotel pioneer Ian Schrager to launch the trendy new brand, but since the debut of the Waikiki property, it has floundered. The owners filed "a lawsuit in New York Supreme Court that Marriott had failed to make the flashy new Edition hotel brand a success, resulting in the Waikiki location underperforming relative to its market." Marriott has also opened an Edition hotel in Istanbul, and planned to open additional properties in London and Miami Beach. What's next in this dramatic hotel saga? Will Marriott regain control of the Edition? Only time will tell...
