EDITION Announces Global Expansion Plan

EDITION Announces Global Expansion Plan
December 7, 2022

Under the new leadership of Josh Fluhr, Senior Vice President and Global Managing Director, EDITION Hotels is driving global expansion with the portfolio expected to double in size to 30 properties by 2027. The luxury lifestyle brand also unveils the evolution of its groundbreaking concept with the introduction of standalone luxury residences.

With 15 hotels currently open worldwide, EDITION Hotels expects five new properties to launch in 2023, with four in new destinations including Rome, Mexico’s Riviera Maya at Kanai, Singapore, and Jeddah, along with a second Tokyo location in Ginza. EDITION Hotels’ ongoing expansion is slated to continue into 2024 and beyond, with hotel signings this year in several primary destinations, including Lake Como and the Red Sea.

Following the success of EDITION residences as part of hotel developments in Miami, West Hollywood, and Tampa, the first standalone EDITION branded residences are under development in Miami Edgewater and Fort Lauderdale, anticipated to launch in 2026 and 2027 respectively. EDITION residences represent a new generation of luxury homeownership, designed with EDITION’s signature fusion of modern sophistication and authentic creativity inspired by the locale.

EDITION is a collection of individualized hotels, seamlessly balancing great design and true innovation while combining personal modern luxury service with compelling restaurants, bars, and entertainment concepts. Each EDITION property delivers a lifestyle experience all under one roof, reflecting the best of the cultural and social milieu of its location and of the time.

Josh Fluhr commented, “EDITION’s rapid hotel growth and the interest from the development community to build standalone residences clearly illustrates the strength of the brand. Extending our luxury lifestyle hospitality brand into the standalone residential arena provides our most loyal guests an opportunity to literally live the EDITION lifestyle without leaving home. By the end of 2023, we expect that EDITION will operate in 20 destinations as we add hotels in new and existing markets across three continents while continuing to build a robust pipeline.”

The Rome EDITION | Expected Opening Spring 2023
EDITION Hotels’ first Italian property will feature 93 rooms and suites, including two penthouses each with a private terrace. The Rome EDITION will offer a signature restaurant with outdoor dining space that will make locals and visitors fall in love with its cuisine and all that comes with it; a Punch Room Bar with its exceptionally crafted cocktails; and a Rooftop Terrace where guests have the choice of a seasonal bite, a drink overlooking the city, a private gathering with friends, or all of the above. In addition to customizable indoor and outdoor event spaces, plans also call for a rooftop swimming pool, a spacious high-tech gym, and two treatment rooms including a couples-massage experience.

With its central location a few steps from Via Veneto and Bernini’s Tritone Fountain in Piazza Barberini, The Rome EDITION is within a short walk of all the best that the city has to offer, such as the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, the Borghese Gardens and Gallery, and other wonders that make Rome a must-see destination. At the corner of modern luxury and history, the hotel is housed within a historical striking building designed by Cesare Pascoletti in collaboration with architect Marcello Piacentini, one of Italy’s most famed architects of Rationalism in the early 20th century.

In addition to multiple meeting spaces, the hotel will also house an extensive outdoor deck for large-scale events and parties.
