7 iconic NYC properties now owned by Chinese firms: VIDEO

Starwood's holdings could join a number of illustrious buildings owned by China-based companies

Despite a $13.6 billion bid by Marriott International, some industry insiders say Anbang Insurance Group may have enough capital to lock down a takeover offer for hospitality giant Starwood Hotels & Resorts.

If Anbang is successful, iconic buildings such as the W, Sheraton, Westin and St. Regis would join a growing number of New York City properties being snapped up by Chinese investors. The list includes the iconic Waldorf Astoria hotel and the Baccarat hotel.
