The Real Deal New York

 In September, hotelier and Studio 54 co-founder Ian Schrager opened the doors to his latest hotel project: the London Edition.

The 173-room hotel is Marriott branded and created with the help of the hospitality firm Yabu Pushelberg. In terms of design, the interiors beautifully mix Edwardian opulence with modern amenities: ornate stucco ceilings juxtaposed with a glass vestibule and a large polished-silver orb hung from the ceiling.

The hotel includes the Berner Tavern Restaurant, which seats 140 guests and boast two custom-built chandeliers inspired by NYC’s Grand Central Station, according to Curbed. And in the back of the hotel is the Punch Room, a wood-paneled drink lounge inspired by London’s 19th-century social clubs. [Curbed]Christopher Cameron
