If you’re looking for somewhere funky-ish for your next trip to New York, the latest EDITION hotel has just opened in Times Square.  Full details are here.

Times Square Edition opens

The location may, de facto, make you write it off before you even see it.  I can’t blame you.  However, I have been very impressed by the class and style of two EDITION hotels I have toured (I’ve never spent the night in one).  If you used to stay in a W hotel but can’t stand the pace any longer, EDITION is for you.

As a Marriott Bonvoy redemption you’re looking at 60,000 points per night.  If you’re paying cash, don’t forget to factor in $35 per night of ‘resort fees’ – although you get a $35 food and beverage credit in return – plus taxes, to the price you see online.

The Times Square EDITION page of mariott.com is here.
