Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc, in collaboration with Grand Hotel di Como Srl, just announced the opening of its new Sheraton Lake Como Hotel in northern Italy. It is the first internationally branded upscale property to open in Como.
The hotel's interior was renovated by Italian architect Ruggero Venelli, and incorporates natural materials, neutral colors and custom handcrafted furniture from well-known local designers. Along with redesigned guestrooms, the property has four new suites, a fitness center, two outdoor swimming pools, a private park and a “futuristically designed” multi-functional conference space designed by Italian architect Attilio Terragni.
The property also has two new dining venues; Gusto Restaurant, which serves traditional Italian cuisine with a modern twist, and Kincho Restaurant, offering a variety of South American dishes. Guests can also dine at the Bar Fresco and Sheraton Club lounge.
Sheraton Lake Como offers views of the Alps, and is located near Como’s historical center, as well as two key international aiports; the Milan Malpensa and the Milan Linate. Guests can also walk to the Lake Como shore and participate in a variety of water-based activities or take a boat tour.
