History[edit]

In April 1995, ITT Sheraton introduced the Four Points by Sheraton brand, to replace the designation of certain hotels as Sheraton Inns. During the early 2000s, this mid-scale, moderate-rate, full-service hotel brand operated around 135 properties, across about 15 countries, but primarily in the US.[3][4]

In 1998, Starwood acquired ITT Sheraton.[5] In 2000, Starwood relaunched Four Points by Sheraton as a premier upscale hotel chain for business and leisure travelers. The hotels initiated a Best Brews program that offers an opportunity to sample local craft beers.[6][7]

In September 2016, Marriott acquired the Four Points by Sheraton brand as part of its purchase of Starwood.[8] After the takeover, Marriott identified properties which did not meet brand standards, which were required to either renovate, or exit the brand.[9]

Notable Properties[edit]

The Four Points by Sheraton Havana, a conversion of the existing Hotel Quinta Avenida, became the first US-managed hotel in Cuba since 1960, when it opened in June 2016.[10] On June 5, 2020, Marriott was ordered by the U.S. Treasury to cease management of the hotel by August 31,[11] after the Trump administration suspended Marriott's license to operate in Cuba.[12]
