Hilton offers $140 million for the Mandarin Oriental Boston

Hilton Worldwide is offering to buy the Mandarin Oriental in Boston for $140 million, just short of $1 million per room.

Since 2008 the hotel has been owned by Anglo Irish Bank Corp. The Irish government is selling off its U.S. assets through a federal bankruptcy court in Delaware and held a three-day auction for the Boston hotel last week in Chicago. The 14-story building also has 85 condominiums and apartments that are privately owned and not part of the deal.
