The refurbishment ending in 2013 saw the room numbers increase from 155 to 173.
In 2006 the Berners Hotel closed for major refurbishment, however its owners JJW Hotels and Resorts went into administration and the hotel was still under scaffolding when bought by Marriott International for in excess of £60 million pounds (beating 40 other bids) in 2010. Marriott then partnered with Ian Schrager (of Studio 54 in New York and St martins Lane and Sanderson hotels in London fame) to create a boutique style hotel under the 'Edition' brand. The London Edition was totally rebuilt and the work took 3 years with the re-opening on September 12th 2013.
The building was originally a group of five townhouses before being converted into the Berners hotel in 1908.
