When the five new hotels come onboard by 2017, they will increase the total number of hotels under the portfolio of the brand in Nigeria to 10. Currently, the global hotel chain operates five hotels in Nigeria including Sheraton Lagos Hotel, Sheraton Abuja Hotel, Four Points by Sheraton Lekki-Lagos, Le Meridien Ibom Hotel & Golf Resort and Le Meridien Ogeyi Place.

Owned by the Akwa Ibom State Government, Four Points by Sheraton Ikot Ekpene is scheduled to debut in 2015.
