Travellers booked at The Westin Lighter Quay on Auckland's viaduct are being offered rooms elsewhere after The Westin pulled out of running the hotel.

Starwood Hotels and Resorts put out a statement this morning saying its management agreement to operate the hotel under The Westin brand will cease on July 29.Investors alleged they hadn't received "anything like" the returns promised by the hotel's management company.Whether that means the over 50 rooms operating under the Westin brand will close or be managed by another hotel operator is still unclear.The waterfront hotel has been caught in a battle between disgruntled investors, who control 116 units in the hotel, and management company Lighter Quay Management which controls over 50 rooms.Developer Nigel McKenna's Lighter Quay Management was placed into receivership last year owing the Bank of Scotland $16.6 million.Investors alleged they hadn't received "anything like" the returns promised by the hotel's management company.
