Marriott to Regain Control of Edition Waikiki Hotel
A judge has ordered the owners of the Edition Waikiki hotel to return the keys to the building to Marriott following a surprise, pre-dawn weekend raid that ousted Marriott as manager, Marriott says in a just-issued press release. Marriott has a 30-year-contract to manage the property, but the hotel's owners in May charged that Marriott hasn't done a good enough job and the hotel's poor performance is costing them money. The charges are laid out in the lawsuit filed by the owners. The latest, dramatic twist came August 28. That's when the hotel's owners had another management firm - Hawaii-based Aqua Hotels - conducted a surprise takeover on the hotel, which left guests who were staying at the hotel in the lurch.
