Four Points by Sheraton unveils global pipeline

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

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.
