Morgans to sell off Hudson in New York, Delano in South Beach

Morgans Hotel Group has started a formal sales process for the 928-room Hudson Hotel on Columbus Circle and is hoping to get $500 million for the Ian Schrager-developed property, The New York Post is reporting.

The group is also looking to sell its 194-room Delano South Beach hotel in Miami for $200 million.

The decision to sell the two properties are a stark departure from the company's earlier plan to possibly sell the entire company. However, after Morgans announced in May that it had retained Morgan Stanley to explore a range of strategic alternatives, Morgans’ shares jumped up 3.5 percent.
