As the first project in a branded collaboration between hotelier Ian Schrager and Marriott International, representing the next generation of boutique hotels, Edition Istanbul balances international sophistication with the specific cultural context of a historic city that stands at the gateway between Europe and Asia. Traditional Turkish materials and techniques are reinterpreted with a modern sensibility, for an exotic, customized lifestyle experience unique to Istanbul. Located in the city’s Levent business district, the 78-key hotel draws on the energy of the urban environment to animate its ground-floor public spaces.

The guest suites are designed to elevate guests’ functional needs and enhance the pleasure in the activities of daily living, where the modern and the traditional mix in complementary, contrasting ways.
