Edition, a partnership between hoteliers extraordinaires Ian Schrager and Bill Marriott, got off to a successful start last year with the unveiling of its first property, the beach-chic Waikiki Edition, in September. Next up is its 15-story, 78-room tower (with a 2,900-square foot floor-through penthouse) in Istanbul's Levent neighborhood, which soft-opened February 10. The hotel was designed in collaboration with the New York architectural firm Gabellini Sheppard, whose résumé includes retail spaces for high-fashion names like Giorgio Armani, Vera Wang and David Yurman—so it's no surprise that its style is modern yet understatedly luxurious. Each room has a silver-gold and bronze palette, hardwood floors with silk carpets, custom furniture, seating areas and wall-to-wall windows overlooking the city. (Book one of the Superior or Loft rooms with a teak-floored terrace.) There's also an in-house Cipriani restaurant, a three-story, 20,000-square-foot spa by Espa with private Turkish hammams, a screening room and a nightclub and bar. Rooms start at $415, but special introductory rates can be found on the hotel website through March 6. At 136/1 Buyukdere Cad.; 90-212/317-7700; editionhotels.com.
