Top-notch Accommodations

The Ocean Breeze Suites are among the best rooms to book at the Sheraton Cable Beach Resort. They offer a large private wraparound terrace with views of the landscapes, pool and ocean.

These suites also feature a bedroom with a separate adjoining parlor for entertaining, and include a wet bar area and an additional bathroom. They can also be converted into a one-, two-, or three-bedroom suites via adjoining rooms.

The Presidential Suites, however, are the most requested premium accommodations. Situated on the seventh floor, they come with the same amenities as the Ocean Breeze suites and are sold as two-bedroom suites; however, an additional room may be added to form a three-bedroom suite. This suite can be booked through the GDS.

About the New General Manager

In July, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. announced the appointment of 21-year hotel industry veteran Hans Altenhoff as general manager of the Sheraton Cable Beach Resort. Altenhoff oversees the overall operations of the resort, including food and beverage, housekeeping, maintenance and sales.

He came to Sheraton Cable Beach Resort from the 659-room Sheraton Bal Harbour Beach Resort in Bal Harbour, FL, where he held the position of general manager for the past five years. During that time, he received many awards, including the "Outstanding Balance Performance Award for 2006" for the southeast region and Starwood's award for the "Leadership and Dedication Throughout the 2005 Hurricane Season."

From 1989 to 2002, Altenhoff served as general manager at five other Starwood locations throughout the U.S. and Canada: Sheraton Hartford Hotel in Hartford, CT; Sheraton Fredericton Hotel in New Brunswick, Canada; Sheraton Cerritos Hotel in Cerritos, CA; Princeville Hotel in Princeville, HI; and the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. During that time, and under his strategic direction, occupancy rates rose.
