For Starwood the end game is a five to seven year horizon and with the critical condition of the US lodging supply, undervalued assets are readily available.
Management is being outsourced to a third party.
Brand kind Barry Sternlicht's group also owns the luxury Baccarat hotel license which is currently shopping for properties in Asia, and the 1 Hotels eco-chain.
