NEW YORK, Oct. 9 (UPI) -- An investor group led by Blackstone Group LP, said they have pulled U.S. hotel chain Extended Stay out of bankruptcy for $3.9 billion.

The group, comprised of Blackstone, Paulson & Co. and Centerbridge Partners LP, offered Extended Stay the rescue plan that includes 685 hotel properties, The Wall Street Journal reported Saturday.

Starwood Capital Group had submitted a proposal of their own, but a group of unsecured creditors settled their claims in advance of court approval, derailing that effort, the Journal said.
