    Marriott Takes Back Operation of Waikiki EDITION:confused:

    BETHESDA, Md., Aug. 31, 2011 -- /PRNewswire/ -- After an overnight raid last Sunday seizing control of the Waikiki EDITION from Marriott International, Inc. (NYSE: MAR), the owners of the hotel were ordered by a New York state judge to return the hotel to Marriott's control as of 8:30 p.m. today eastern time, which is 2:30 p.m. Honolulu time.

    Arne Sorenson, Marriott International's president and chief operating officer, said, "The past few days have been trying, frustrating and confusing for our guests and employees. We're glad the judge returned the Waikiki EDITION to our hands. We are in the process of resuming operations, quickly returning the hotel and its service to EDITION standards.

    "We take great pride in providing the gracious, sophisticated, and personalized service that has won Edition accolades from media and guests as a dramatic and dynamic new brand, and we look forward to serving our guests again very soon."

    Holy crap what a mess.

    I'd hate to be a guest or employee and have to deal with that mess.
