Starwood Capital Group Key Developments

Starwood Capital Group Announces Opening of Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York

Starwood Capital Group announced the March 18th opening of Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York. Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York is the first hotel and 250 year-old Baccarat crystal brand. Directly across the street from the Museum of Modern Art and steps away from Fifth Avenue's legendary shopping, the hotel occupies the first 12 floors of the split level tower that rises 550 feet above West 53rd Street. Glowing inside and out, the lower levels of the hotel are veiled by a 125-foot wide corrugated crystal-like curtain. Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York features 114 sensationally appointed guest rooms and suites and a new modern French restaurant, Chevalier, overseen by Michelin-starred Executive Chef Shea Gallante. Legendary New York restaurateur Charles Masson will curate style and service in Chevalier and in the hotel's second-story lobby salons and bar. The Bar at Baccarat, just off the opulent Grand Salon, is an epic space featuring barrel-vaulted ceilings, a 60-foot bar and an outdoor terrace overlooking the MoMA. The hotel also features a 50-foot indoor pool, an elite fitness training facility and the first Spa de La Mer in the United States. Each of the hotel's 114 guest rooms and suites feels like a private pied-a-terre. Room categories start with the generous Classic King and ascend to the Baccarat Presidential Suite, the hotel's "piece de resistance." All rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows, sitting areas, and custom jacquard linens by Mascioni. Hidden from the sleeping area by hand-painted French doors, white marble bathrooms boast glass-enclosed showers with oversized shower heads and exclusive amenities created for the hotel by Parisian perfumer Francis Kurkdjian. An intimate spa, fitness center and 50-foot indoor pool will open in the month following the hotel's debut. Baccarat Hotel & Residences New York is located at 20 West 53rd Street. Rates begin at $899.

The initial portfolio for the joint venture consists of seven well-established beachfront hotels representing 2,933 keys that are currently owned by Melia Hotels International and will continue to be managed by Melia upon completion of the transaction. The properties will be acquired by the joint venture in a transaction valued at €176 million ($198 million), subject to the approval of the European Union Merger Control Office. Included in the initial portfolio are the Sol Principe in Malaga, the Sol Lanzarote and Melia Gorriones (Fuerteventura) in the Canary Islands, the Sol Ibiza and Sol Pinet Playa in Ibiza, and the Sol Mirlos and Sol Tordos (Palmanova, Mallorca). The hotels will all be fully refurbished, after which the Sol Principe, Sol Lanzarote, Sol Mirlos and Sol Tordos will continue to operate under the new Sol Hotels brand, with the Sol Mirlos and Sol Tordos being renamed as the Sol Palmanova. Sol Ibiza will become Sol Beach House Ibiza and Sol Pinet Playa will be renamed Sol House Pinet Ibiza. The main portion of the Melia Gorriones property will continue to operate under the Melia brand, and the current annex will be rebranded as Sol Beach House Fuerteventura. A controlled affiliate of Starwood Capital will own 80% of the joint venture company, while Melia Hotels International will own the remaining 20%.
