Claremont Companies and Marriott did not respond to requests for comment.

Last month The Real Deal reported that the five boroughs have a swollen pipeline of hotel projects and revenue in the city’s hotel market has been moving in the wrong direction.

In September, Claremont Companies sold a Marriott-branded hotel in Pompano Beach, Fla., for $44 million. Earlier in the year a group of investors led by Madison Capital bought a Soho office building at 130 Prince Street for about $206 million.
