1. Re: Edition Spa Certificates

I would be sceptical with purchasing certificates because the owners of the Edition and Marriott Hotels are in some kind of dispute with the opening of the hotel and the lack of business.

Quite recently, Ho'onani Saloon and Spa on Kapahulu Avenue, a favorite place that concierge recommends, suddenly closed it's doors after making a big push for advance discounted coupons to Saloon and Spa services. Today, the people that bought the coupons are out of lucky, not able to use the coupons. Purchasers are waiting for there capture to get some kind of refund. The owners are no way to be found.

But, of course, it is up to you.

I think it is a stretch to tar the Edition with the same brush as what happened to a free-standing, non-hotel spa, outside of Waikiki....

The recent litigation between the Edition owners and Marriott management was not unexpected or atypical for hotels "built" and opened during the recent tourism downturn. The owners are seeking any deep pocket to recover some of their losses; not all of which are attributable to Marriott.

Marriott has a long-term management agreement; both parties have significant time, capital and prestige invested in the hotel; and the number of "brands" which could step into that facility and perhaps do a better job than Marriott are highly limited.

To imply that somehow the whole thing will fall apart and go out of business before one can redeem some spa certificates is likely going a bridge too far.

I agree with amberloo. The spa at the Edition is in an established hotel and not likely to just close down over night without compensating those with appointments or certificates. That other spa was an independently owned facility in a non central location and located in a strip mall with very limitted parking, The service there was ok but honestly, having been there, I'm not surprised that it's closed down. It was essentially a beauty salon with a couple rooms set up for spa services. There were no additional spa services like showers, steam rooms, etc.

Whole different ball of wax there.
