Orbis had until then been leasing the hotel from its previous owner, Universale International Realitäten GmbH. noted that Starwood Capital Group is active mostly on the global real estate market, as well as in energy infrastructure, oil and gas. The firm and its subsidiaries have 10 offices in four countries, employing a total of 3,400 people, and currently manages assets worth USD 54 billion.
