Barcelona to welcome Edition hotel in 2017 following Schrager deal

Ian Schrager, together with Marriott International, and the owner and developer, KKH Property Investors, have revealed plans to open a new property in Barcelona, Spain in 2017, The Barcelona Edition.

Edition is the first true luxury-lifestyle brand which combines the personal, intimate, individualised and unique hotel experience that Ian Schrager is known for, with the reach, operational expertise and global scale of Marriott International. 

Marriott International will manage the hotel under a long-term agreement.

The 100-room hotel will boast an enviable locale in the destination’s famed Ciutat Vella district, close to the Cathedral of Barcelona and nearly adjacent to the iconic Santa Caterina Market.

Within fifteen minutes of the beach, the hotel will also be set within walking distance of many of the city’s most beloved landmarks including the Picasso museum, Santa Maria del Mar church, Palau de la Musica and Paseo de Gracia.


“We are delighted to announce what will be our third Edition Hotel in Europe, debuting in one of the most sophisticated and vibrant cities in the region,” said Dan Flannery, global managing director of Edition.

“EDITION continues to thrive following the recent and iconic openings of London, Miami Beach and New York City, and we couldn’t be more excited about the potential for the brand throughout Europe,” said Flannery.

Now open in New York, London, Miami and Istanbul, Edition Hotels has marked the next chapter in the lifestyle hotel story.

This delicate balancing act encompasses, for the very first time, not only great design and true innovation, but also great personal, friendly, modern service as well as outstanding, one-of-a-kind food, beverage and entertainment offerings.
