Starwood opens Four Points property in Charleston, W.Va.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide launched its Four Points brand in Charleston, W.VA. Owned by BBL Hospitality, Four Points by Sheraton Charleston completed a $15-million renovation to transform the Charleston House Hotel into the newest addition to the Four Points portfolio. Offering views of the Kanawha River, the hotel is Starwood’s first property to open in West Virginia. The newly renovated hotel has 176 guestrooms and suites, 12,000 square feet of meeting facilities, full-service dining and more.  

“Four Points by Sheraton Charleston offers an unbeatable riverfront location right at the heart of the city’s bustling downtown where guests can enjoy an uncomplicated comfort, genuine service, plus all the amenities they need to stay productive on the road,” said Brian McGuinness, Senior Vice President of Specialty Select Brands for Starwood.

To celebrate its grand-opening, the hotel will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony on January 22, 2014 at 9:00AM.
