Starwood to open new Four Points in Benin, Nigeria

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has signed a deal to open the Four Points Benin City, Nigeria. Owned by Eagle Hospitality and Leisure Limited, the new Four Points hotel will be located in the middle of Benin City—the capital city of Edo State, one of Nigeria's 36 states.

“Four Points by Sheraton Benin City will further consolidate our strong Nigeria portfolio, opening up yet another emerging destination for international travel,” Michael Wale, president, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa and Middle East, said in a statement. “With five hotels operating and another four in the pipeline, including Four Points Benin City, Nigeria is already one of our strongest markets in the region.”

“Responding to the demand for affordable yet innovative lodging options is core to our development strategy,” said Neil George, SVP acquisitions & development for Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Africa & Middle East. “Four Points has the largest number of rooms in Starwood’s global pipeline and its compelling blend of comfort, style and affordability make the brand increasingly attractive for owners and developers.”
