Starwood to Operate Barcelona Hotel

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has signed an agreement with Amrey Hotels S.L. to operate a Four Points Hotel in Barcelona. The Four Points by Sheraton Barcelona Diagonal will open this fall, marking the entry of Starwood's Four Points brand into Spain. Located in the district [email protected] (next to the Mediterranean Sea and less than 13 miles from Barcelona Airport), the Four Points by Sheraton Barcelona Diagonal will have 154 guest rooms, an all-day dining restaurant, a café, signature bar and fitness center.

The Four Points by Sheraton Barcelona Diagonal is located within [email protected], known locally as Barcelona's "innovation district." The area was redeveloped and launched by the city of Barcelona in 2000 to become the center for design, media and creative firms. Over time, the neighborhood has also become a hub for residential developments, retail stores and shopping centers.

Starwood currently operates 15 hotels throughout Spain under six of its nine brands. These hotels include the recently opened W Barcelona, the Marqués de Riscal and the Hotel Alfonso XIII in Seville, the latter of which is currently undergoing a major renovation.

The Four Points by Sheraton Barcelona Diagonal hotel is a conversion of the existing Amrey Diagonal Hotel, currently operated by Amrey Hotels S.L. The addition of this hotel to the Four Points portfolio following a renovation and re-branding process is part of Starwood's strategic plan to convert key hotels throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
