Reykjavik (In Preview)
The Reykjavik EDITION opened in preview on November 9, 2021.
The first true global luxury lifestyle hotel brand, EDITION is an unexpected and refreshing collection of individualized, customized, one-of-a-kind hotels. Showcasing the best of dining and entertainment, services and amenities, each EDITION property is completely unique, designed to give guests a curated taste of the locale. Conceived by Ian Schrager in a partnership with Marriott International, EDITION combines the personal, intimate, individualized experience that Ian Schrager is known for with the global reach, operational expertise and scale of Marriott.
The Reykjavik EDITION brings the first 5-star modern luxury experience to one of the world’s most sustainable capitals. Located in the historical, scenic heart of downtown Reykjavik by Old Harbor port, the hotel is a 45-minute car ride from the airport and just steps away from the Laugavegur Street, the city’s vibrant shopping district, and the Harpa Concert and Conference Center. The hotel is the perfect jumping off point for exploring the wonders of the region, with the renowned Blue Lagoon within driving distance and the Northern Lights visible in the city during the winter solstice.
The hotel boasts a variety of distinctive food, beverage and entertainment outlets including alfresco dining to enjoy the panoramic views of the waterfront and the city. The Reykjavik EDITION’s sophisticated bedrooms and suites offer spectacular views of the harbor, Mt. Esja and the legendary Snæfellsjökull glacier.
A destination within a destination, the hotel will match the city’s fun-loving reputation with lively spaces to socialize, work and relax, all under one roof.
HOME AWAY FROM HOME
Capturing the EDITION’s approach to laid-back luxury, each of the 253 rooms and suites, including a spectacular 6th-floor Penthouse with panoramic views, have been designed as cozy retreats. Warm palettes of ash wood and pale gray oak are embellished with bespoke furniture, copper details, faux fur rugs, and artwork and accessories from local craftsmen. The monochrome bathrooms are sanctuaries of their own, with enclosed rainfall showers and standard custom Le Labo toiletries. Some rooms have their own outdoor terraces, while most have their beds facing floor-to-ceiling windows that frame various views of the surrounding neighborhood.
A Vibrant Culinary Hotspot
The Reykjavik EDITION further boosts the Icelandic capital’s lively nightlife scene with an impressive line-up of restaurants and bars. Among these is a rooftop destination with scenic views, a vibrant lobby lounge, an intimate cocktail bar, a nightclub, and a first-of-its-kind social spa. On the ground floor, with its own harborside entrance, Tide is the latest offering from Michel-star chef Gunnar Karl Gíslason and offers a seafood-focused menu of modern Icelandic cuisine using fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. For something more casual, the adjacent grab ‘n go café serves coffee alongside a selection of fresh pastries and sandwiches.
