The Times Square Edition, a hotel that made headlines when
it opened in Manhattan last year, will close permanently this summer.
A spokesperson from Marriott International confirmed that
the property is expected to cease operating on or around Aug. 13, and that
notice of the closure has been given to employees and government and union
The 452-room luxury hotel is a collaboration between
Marriott and hospitality veteran Ian Schrager, who jointly launched the Edition
brand in 2007. Located within the 20 Times Square development on Seventh
Avenue, the hotel is the brand’s second in the city, following the 2015 opening
of the New York Edition in the city’s NoMad neighborhood.
