Marriott International has finalized purchase of a 1.37-acre lot at the southeast corner of Sunset Boulevard and Doheny Drive on which it plans to build a 190-room hotel.
The hotel will be the west coast flagship of Marriott’s Edition hotel concept, developed with well-known boutique hotelier Ian Schrager. Marriott has an Edition hotel in Istanbul. Others are being developed in Miami Beach, London, Bangkok and New York City. According to Marriott, the West Hollywood property has been approved for development of the hotel and residences with ancillary amenities such as restaurants, a night club and a rooftop pool and bar.
The sale was announced by Sonnenblick-Eichner Company, which brokered the $31.5 million transaction between Marriott and WN Sunset LLC.
