WSJ reports that it is New York real-estate investor Joseph Chetrit, the man who is responsible for the recent turnaround of the Empire Hotel aka Chuck Bass' hotel on Gossip Girl. And despite the presence of long-term tenants, Chetrit is going to keep the Hotel Chelsea a hotel.
Mr. Chetrit intends to keep it as a hotel, upgrading and modernizing it, according to people familiar with the matter. That will likely come as some relief to the hotel's regular tenants and other fans of the 127-year-old property who had been worried a new owner might convert it into condominiums.
