NYC's Old Donnell Library May Turn into a Baccarat Hotel From Starwood Capital

It looks like Starwood Capital (different from Starwood hotels) has resurrected their luxury brand, Baccarat Hotels and Resorts which we last heard from in 2009.

The Starwood Stalker over at Passions of a Zealot has done some nifty spying on Starwood Capital's press releases which show a recent announcement titled, "Starwood to Build World-Class Hotel on New York Public Library Site (Fund VII, Hotel Fund II and 53rd St. Co-Invest" accompanied by the Baccarat Hotels logo.

The hotel they are talking about is the old Donnell Library has long been bandied about as turning into a luxury hotel. But maybe this time it will actually happen as Baccarat was also mentioned as the possible luxury hotel brand in a NY Post article as well.

Yet if it does, we still probably have to wait until sometime in 2014 for it.
