Waikiki Edition Returned to Marriott Control

After an overnight raid last Sunday seizing control of the Waikiki Edition from Marriott International, the owners of the hotel were ordered by a New York state judge to return the hotel to Marriott’s control as of 8:30 p.m. today eastern time, which is 2:30 p.m. Honolulu time.

Arne Sorenson, Marriott International’s president and chief operating officer, released a statement saying, “The past few days have been trying, frustrating and confusing for our guests and employees. We’re glad the judge returned the Waikiki Edition to our hands. We are in the process of resuming operations, quickly returning the hotel and its service to Edition standards."

Reservations for the Waikiki Edition can be made through Marriott.com.
