Woes for a Hotelier


There's not much comfy about the hotel business these days. The downturn has brought a bust in corporate travel and the rise of the dreaded "staycation" as folks stick close to home. The latest victim: Extended Stay Hotels, a chain with 680-plus properties where the average stay runs 18 to 20 nights. The chain filed for Chapter 11 on June 15. Besides the recession's ravages, Extended Stay suffered from $7.4 billion in debt taken on during a top-of-the-market buyout in 2007 led by David Lichtenstein's Lightstone Group.
