A historic moment has been made with the opening of the Starwood Hotels & Resorts
Four Points Havana
in Cuba on June 29. This is the first American hotel to welcome guests to the Pearl of the Antilles in almost 60 years.

The opening of the hotel is a result of innovative deals by Starwood in Cube earlier this year that states Starwood as the first U.S. based hospitality company to enter Cuba. Four Points Havana is located in the Miramar district, which is a financial and business center where many international embassies are located, and owned by Grupo Hotelero Gaviota and managed by Starwood Hotels & Resorts.

The hotel offers guests 186 rooms, 1,000 square feet of facilities, breakfast and lunch at
El Olivo, full-service dining at Don Quixote and poolside snacks. Local beers will be available such as Cristal and Bucanero which will be featured in the brand’s signature Best Brews at the lobby bar. Amenities include a business facility, Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, 24-hour fitness center and a fully equipped spa with a steam bath, sauna and a variety of massage treatments available.

“We are thrilled to once again be pioneers with our groundbreaking entry into Cuba, offering our guests a way to stay with Starwood in this sought after destination,” said Starwood’s Senior Vice President and Chief of Latin America Operations, Jorge Giannattasio. “As one of the most successful brands in the Latin America region, the Four Points brand’s aggressive footprint—18 hotels in 9 countries—caters to business travelers from around the world. We are confident that it will be a perfect fit for this dynamic market.”

Four Points has more than 200 hotels in nearly 40 countries. The company continues to boast Starwood’s largest channel while they enter new markets to further their track of expanding their collection of rooms by more than 60 percent in the next few years.
