Embassy gained ownership of the hotel in 2016 when it acquired around 75% of Mac Charles India, the then owner of Le Meridien for Rs 644 crore.

The Deal

This will be the first significant deal in a rather quiet year, though discussions have been on for other transactions. Hopefully, this should be a trigger for more deals to happen in the months to come,” said Mandeep Lamba, managing director, India, Hotels, and Hospitality Group, JLL.

The Future

According to the report, the hotel will be demolished this year and the group is likely to construct a new building next year. Since the stakes were bought by the embassy, there were talks on demolition as the chairman of the embassy, virwani, has earlier said that they might turn it into an office space or a residential tower.
