Starwood to debut in Slovenia with new Four Points

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has announced the signing of Four Points by Sheraton Ljubljana Mons. Owned by Kranjska Investicijska Družba d.o.o., the hotel will mark the entry of Starwood into Slovenia when it opens in 2014.

Four Points by Sheraton Ljubljana Mons will be located just 10 minutes from the centre of Slovenia’s capital city Ljubljana and 15 minutes from the international airport.

"With a steady increase in international arrivals over the last few years and its strategic location at the crossroads of main European cultural and trade routes, the time is right to enter Slovenia," said Michael Wale, president, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa and Middle East. 

The hotel will have 114 guestrooms including three junior suites, a restaurant and bar, nearly 850 square metres of meeting and event space, including a large ballroom, two meeting rooms and three boardrooms, as well as a fitness centre and parking facilities.

"Growing our mid-market brands in key European markets is core to our development strategy," said Bart Carnahan, SVP acquisitions & development, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa & Middle East. "Four Points by Sheraton has one of the strongest pipelines in the Starwood brand portfolio and continues to be an increasingly attractive choice for owners and developers."

The Four Points by Sheraton Ljubljana Mons is a conversion of an existing hotel.
