THPT Comment: Siegel are clearly going well with this acquisition and i guess we’ll see more before the year is out. Mind you the largest extended stay company in the USA is Extended Stay America with 600 properties across the USA, founded in 1995 and acquired by Blackstone in 2004 for US$3.1bn…who sold it the Lightstone Group in 2007 for US$8bn. They went Chapter 11 in 2009 and got bought back by Blackstone for just under US$4bn….
