Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. today announced plans to open a Four Points by Sheraton hotel in Reno, Nevada – the “Biggest Little City in the World.” Owned and developed by MT3 Partners, LLC, the new-build hotel is scheduled to open in May of 2011. Offering sweeping views of Mt. Rose and downtown Reno, the 175-room property will provide comfortable beds, spacious work areas, free high-speed Internet and easy access to Reno’s top attractions.
Four Points by Sheraton Reno South will be a key part of the upscale Boulevard South complex, a mixed-use development including shops and restaurants located in the heart of South Reno’s business district, with easy access to Highway 395. Just ten minutes from the Reno Tahoe International Airport, Four Points by Sheraton Reno South will be adjacent to a 16-acre lake with a walking path and convenient to the casinos, shops and restaurants of downtown Reno. Guests will enjoy proximity to the Reno Sparks Convention Center, the Summit Sierra Mall and the corporate offices of IGT, Microsoft, Intuit and Pfizer, while ski enthusiasts will be less than 40 minutes from both Lake Tahoe and Mt. Rose.
“Four Points by Sheraton Reno South will help meet the growing need for comfortable and affordable lodging in this bustling city, hailed for its premium entertainment and outdoor recreation,” said Sandy Swider, Vice President, Four Points by Sheraton. “We look forward to providing our guests with a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere, spacious rooms and little indulgences to help them feel special at the end of day.”
In the evening, guests will be invited to kick back and relax in the hotel’s family room with friends and colleagues while enjoying a fresh cup of coffee. Domestic and international brews will be served in the hotel lounge, courtesy of the popular Four Points by Sheraton Best Brews program. Four Points by Sheraton Reno South will also offer approximately 1,500 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting space, a full-service restaurant and fitness facility.
Designed for comfort, rooms will come equipped with a 32-inch flat screen television and the Four Points by Sheraton Comfort Bed with the brand’s new, all-white bedding ensemble including a quilted down duvet, crisp 250-thread count sheets and an assortment of feather/down and hypoallergenic pillows.
