“We’re pleased to have had a chance to provide financing for a transaction involving one of New York City’s most renowned hotels, and one that is in a particularly attractive location,” Christopher Hoeffel, a managing director at Investcorp, in a statement.

This is not the first time Investcorp has partnered with RFR, noted. In 2004, Investcorp acquired the W South Beach and developed the hotel and condominium project with the RFR. [GlobeSt]
