Starwood Capital to Buy 18 Hotels From Hersha for $155 Million

Aug. 18 (Bloomberg) -- An affiliate of Barry Sternlicht’s Starwood Capital Group LLC agreed to purchase 18 hotels in the eastern U.S. from Hersha Hospitality Trust for $155 million.

Hersha is selling the hotels, which include the Residence Inn and Hampton Inn brands, to reduce debt and to focus on major metropolitan markets, the Philadelphia-based real estate investment trust said today in a statement. The transaction is expected to be completed before the end of the year.

The company estimates net proceeds of $54 million from the sale. The hotels are in seven states, including Connecticut, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, according to a regulatory filing.

Sternlicht started Starwood Capital, an investment firm based in Greenwich, Connecticut, in 1991.
