Plaza Hotel in New York sold to Indian billionaire


The Plaza Hotel was the home of the 1950s fictional tearaway Eloise

Indian billionaire Subrata Roy has bought the luxury Plaza Hotel at the corner of Central Park in Manhattan.

Mr Roy's Sahara group, known for its sponsorship of Indian cricket and motor sports, paid the US-Israeli retailer El Ad $575m (£360m) for its 75% stake.

The remaining 25% of the hotel is being retained by its current owner, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia, via his Kingdom Holding group.

Mr Roy has also reportedly bought a second luxury hotel in New York.

In a separate deal, Sahara bought the Hotel Dream New York on Monday from American hotelier Vikram Chatwal for $220m, according to the Economic Times of India.
