EDITION responds to new emerging cultural and social imperatives. It reflects these changing lifestyles and caters to a vast underserved market of guests expecting and in turn demanding a unique experience, not merely a place to sleep. Each hotel is rare in its individuality, authenticity, originality and unique ethos that reflects the best of the cultural and social milieu of its location and of the time.
EDITION is about an attitude and the way it makes you feel rather than the way it looks. The attitude comes alive to guests via their senses. The brand has unique language, modern visual appeal, music and scent.

As Director of Travel Industry Sales you will be responsible for directing the hotel's Travel Industry Sales function, verifying that client expectations and production goals are met.

The London EDITION

EDITION Hotels is the new generation of luxury. The new Brand is conceived by Ian Schrager in a partnership with Marriott International. It combines the personal, intimate, individualized and unique lodging experience that Ian Schrager is known for, with the global reach, operational expertise and scale of Marriott. This delicate balancing act will encompass, 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... "all under one roof". The authenticity and originality that Ian Schrager brings to this new Brand coupled with the global reach of Marriott results in a truly distinct product that sets itself apart from anything else currently in the marketplace.
