Ian Schrager, founder of Edition, commented:
“Reykjavik is a really cool, young city – perfect for our brand. We think this is Reykjavik’s time and we’re right here at the very heart of it and at the perfect time.”
“In Iceland, you’re getting to see things you won’t see anywhere else. More so than any other place in the world, it’s a real opportunity to get in touch with earth and nature and we’re proud to further expand the Edition brand in an incredible place with an incredibly exciting hotel that gives you a true sense of place.”
