, the new lifestyle hotel brand from Marriott and creative adviser Ian Schrager, will open a new property in İstanbul in April.
   It follows on from the Waikiki Edition, launched last October, which was awarded the AAA 4-Diamond.
   Located in the Levent district, where the Kanyon mall is situated, the 13-storey Istanbul Edition blends east and west. There is a domed lobby, inspired by the Ottoman style, and mosaic tiles are present through much of the property. The guest rooms themselves feature rosewood or soaped oak walls, ceilings and floors.
   There are 77 suites averaging 480 ft² and a full-floor penthouse. Some have terraces that overlook İstanbul’s skyline.
   The Istanbul Edition promises to be unique, with a personality drawn from the location. The company promises excellent service to complement the design, saying, ‘Now there is no need to sacrifice service to stay at the coolest place in town.’
   The hotel has a Cipriani restaurant, a 20,000 ft² spa by Espa with indoor swimming pool, Gold Bar, a drawing room, private screening room, nightclub and a 3,000 ft² event space.
   Nightly rates begin at €305 per room. Reservations can be made on (800) 466-9695 in the US, and 800 466-96950 internationally.
