A Unique Luxury Hotel Experience in Waikiki

Edition Hotels marks the next chapter in the Lifestyle Hotel story. This new Brand was conceived by hip hotelier Ian Schrager in a partnership with Marriott International. Waikiki is the first of

five Edition hotels opened by this notable partnership and the new hotel occupies one wing of the historic Ilikai Hotel. On the outside it looks the same, minus the Ilikai’s signature aquamarine trim. The new facade will combine the personal, intimate, individualized and unique lodging experience that Ian Schrager is known for, with the global reach, operational expertise and scale of Marriott.

The Waikiki Edition’s 353 generously scaled luxury hotel rooms and suites are decorated in natural tones and rich woods with distinctive design touches to create a soothing sense of organic luxury with the character of a home away from home.
The rooms have oversized windows overlooking the city, pools, yacht harbor, and ocean. Many have furnished terraces with sliding louvered doors offering shuttered shade, filtered sunshine or dramatic vistas across the city to the ocean beyond.
Custom beds with down comforters and pillows, 46” LCD TVs, a large work area, complimentary high-speed wireless internet, seamlessly integrated Terrazzo counter tops and sinks, large glass enclosed showers, daybeds, and 24-hour-in-room dining–all create a fully-serviced retreat in the comfort of your own private living space.

The heightened experience, authenticity and originality that Ian Schrager brings to this new Brand coupled with the global reach of Marriott will result in a truly distinct product that sets itself apart from anything else currently in the marketplace.

Each hotel will offer a rare individuality, authenticity, originality and unique ethos and will reflect the best of the cultural and social milieu of its location and of the time. Although all of the hotels will look completely different from each other, the Brand’s unifying aesthetic will be in its approach and attitude to the modern lifestyle rather than its appearance. As a result, design and architecture is derived from the scale, location and feel of the individual properties rather than from contrived decorative clichés or unnecessary gestures. The Brand will be about an attitude and the way it makes you feel rather than the way it looks. Sophisticated public spaces, finishes, design and details will serve the experience, not drive it.

Other features of the Waikiki Edition include a bar at Sunrise Pool and a bar at the private Sunset Beach, both under the sun and stars with spectacular views of the yacht harbor and Pacific Ocean, and an outdoor movie theatre offering first run movies, videos and art installations. Custom and individually designed Surf and Bikini Boot Camps, the first of their kind led by professionals, provide weight loss and loss of inches aided by custom vegetarian and organic spa menus. Coupled with a full service spa, guests are offered the unique opportunity to actually go on vacation and come home looking better, feeling healthier and pounds lighter.
