Marriott International has signed an agreement with Bain Capital Credit and Omnam Group to bring its Edition Hotels brand to Italy’s Lake Como. Owned and developed by Bain Capital and Omnam Group through a fund managed by Kryalos SGR, the new hotel is slated to open in 2025.
The Lake Como Edition will have 145 guestrooms, including two penthouse suites, a lobby bar, a floating pool and multiple food and beverage outlets overlooking Lake Como with views of the Bellagio mountains. The property is a 19th-century building located on the western shore of Lake Como, a short drive from Central Milan.
“We are excited to work with Bain Capital Credit and Omnam Group to introduce the Edition Hotels brand to one of Italy’s most beautiful destinations,” said Josh Fluhr, senior vice president and managing director, Edition Hotels, Marriott International.
“There is an incredible opportunity for hotel investments in Italy, not only in large tourist destinations like Rome and Milan, but in specific locations that have a strong appeal for guests that look for high quality services and unique experiences,” said Paolo Bottelli, CEO of Kryalos SGR.
The Lake Como Edition is expected to strengthen Marriott International’s footprint across Europe where it has a portfolio of more than 719 properties with over 137,500 rooms across 25 brands. Edition Hotels operates 15 properties in locations across the globe, including New York, West Hollywood, London, Reykjavik, Madrid, Tokyo and Shanghai.
