SHERATON Hotels & Resorts Hotels is planning a US$350-million makeover for its flagship properties worldwide.
The hotel chain will splash the cash on several large-scale renovation projects this year, including US$160 million on Sheraton New York Hotel & Towers, and US$20 million on Sheraton Mirage Resort & Spa Gold Coast in Australia.
Several Sheraton hotels in China are also due for multi-million dollar upgrades, including The Great Wall Sheraton Hotel Beijing, Sheraton Xian Hotel, Sheraton Chengdu Hotel and Sheraton Nanjing Hotel.
Over the next three years, The Great Wall Sheraton Hotel Beijing will undergo an expansive overhaul of its three wings – one wing at a time – including renovation of all guestrooms, public spaces and F&B outlets, for a total outlay of US$50 million.
“We are delighted to follow our highly successful US$6 billion brand-wide revitalisation with a significant investment in several of our flagship properties,” said Hoyt Harper, global brand leader for Sheraton Hotels & Resorts.
“As business and leisure travel continues to gain momentum, Sheraton is well positioned to meet the increased demand for high-caliber lodging with upgraded brand offerings and a line-up of freshly renovated landmark hotels in key cities across the globe."
