Four Points by Sheraton opens 175th hotel and targets 200th hotel in 2014

15 May, 2013
 


Four Points by Sheraton unveiled a global pipeline of hotels that sets the stage for the 200th opening in 2014. The popular brand reached its 175th hotel in 2013 with the openings of Four Points by Sheraton Manhattan (Manhattan, Kansas), Four Points by Sheraton Riyadh (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia), Four Points by Sheraton Ahmedabad (Ahmedabad, India), and Four Points by Sheraton Kecskemet (Kecskemet, Hungary).

Four Points' growth rate makes it the second-largest pipeline and third-largest brand for parent Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. Four Points represented more than a quarter of Starwood's openings and signings in 2012 and is expected to sign more deals in 2013 than ever before in the brand's history. A recent $1-billion brand-wide rejuvenation has spurred its popularity and is helping to drive Four Points' growth.

In North America, Four Points is expected to surpass 120 hotels this year — representing a 20 percent increase since the beginning of 2008. With 17 new properties set to open in the US and Canada over the next 12 months, the brand is on track to have Starwood's largest North American pipeline.
