How soon until The Setai in Miami has a new owner?

The Setai Hotel in South Beach may soon have a new owner. That's according to The New York Post, which writes that luxury Miami hotel, which has been on the market for a few months, has narrowed the bidding process down to two final offers.

According to The Post, one of them is from the Suzer Group, a Turkish-based company with interests in real estate, banking, construction and oil and gas. Suzer is also the owner of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Istanbul.

The Post reports it has offered $88 million for the 80-room hotel, which comes out to about $1.1 million per room.
