Former Quinta Avenida Hotel in Havana reopens as the new Four Points by Sheraton

Posted: 01-Jul-16 09:58

The first hotel in Cuba to be run by an American company in nearly six decades, the newly reopened Four Points by Sheraton Havana is proudly reopening its doors to guests under a new name representing the worldwide famous Sheraton brand. The large hotel, formerly known as Quinta Avenida because of its location in the elegant Miramar neighbourhood, has undergone a recent overhaul as part of its rebranding process. It's acquisition by Starwood is the ground-breaking result of negotiations between the U.S. hotelier giant and the Cuban government following a multi-million-dollar deal.

Former Quinta Avenida Hotel in Havana reopens as the new Four Points by Sheraton

For the first time since 1959 a Cuban hotel will once again be managed by an American company, following the latest acquisition by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide. After securing a multi-million-dollar deal with Cuba’s governmental tourism authorities this March, the Starwood family has recently added a new member to its portfolio: the new Four Points by Sheraton Havana, formerly known as the Quinta Avenida hotel and enjoying a tranquil, scenic location in the leafy and elegant Miramar neighbourhood, a world away from the noise of downtown yet only a short 10-minute ride to the centre by car.

Just two days ago, the hotel’s transformation was made official and since yesterday it operates under its new name and under Starwood’s brand of Four Points by Sheraton. While you can already book a room via Starwood’s official website, the hotel’s former government-run website with its former name is still live, which may create some confusion, but the booking functionality is no longer working. It might be sometime until the old website is eventually disabled or redirects you to the new one.

In the meantime, the Sheraton brand has been quick to showcase their newest addition on their website with a full-size galleries of recent pictures and a caption that reads:

“Enjoy our hotel’s uncomplicated comforts and modern facilities on Quinta Avenida in the picturesque Miramar residential district.”

More like a sprawling city resort than a hotel due to its size and expansive facilities, the Four Points by Sheraton Havana offers 186 rooms distributed along six floors and large freeform swimming pool with bar. Other facilities include a spa, fitness centre and a complimentary shuttle service to downtown.

As an unprecedented bonus that no other Havana hotel currently offers, the recently overhauled and refurbished Four Points by Sheraton Havana will also be offering free wireless in-room internet access to all its guests.

But Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide is not stopping there. Later this year, the U.S. hotelier giant will also be taking over the legendary Hotel Inglaterra, this time rebranding it as part of The Luxury Collection.
