Waikiki Edition Hotel sues Marriott International

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The Waikiki Edition Hotel has filed a lawsuit against Marriott International, Inc.

The Edition claims Marriott failed to make its new brand a success because Marriott's partner on the Edition brand, Ian Schrager, has been uninvolved with the project.

The suit seeks to end their management agreement and unspecified financial damages.

The current contract that the Edition is seeking to terminate is slated to run for 30 years.

Schrager says he was not aware of the suit.

A Marriott spokesperson says the company has not had enough time to review the suit.
