Blackstone is a bunch of Liars. When I first heard that they had bought Hilton I looked them up on the Internet. They are all about outsoursing and breaking up companies to resell. But you know, what you have done to others will come back to you. When you work in that kind of world, eventually you are not good enough and you will be sold or fired.

Blackstone would have already sold Hilton if there were any buyers for a company that lost half its value since it was purchased. There is still a pending lawsuit from Starwood for espionage.
It's debt got restructured. Otherwise, you'd be looking at a bankrupt company. I will never stay at one over the hil ton hotel or any affiliate again. Marriott is much better.
