Starwood's Four Point by Sheraton made its debut in Havana this week. It is the first US hotel brand to operate in the island since the 1959 Revolution.
In keeping with Barack Obama's recent trip to the island, the American hotel group announced it has signed contracts to develop three hotels in the Cuban capital. The operator will similarly operate the 83-room Inglaterra Hotel. The group also sent a letter of intention to the Cuban authorities regarding the possible management of the Santa Isabel Hotel. This year, international arrivals to the Caribbean island should reach 3, 7 millions, a 6% rise from 2015, with exponential growth expected for the next few years. The US clientele should contribute significantly to this increase, as diplomatic relations between both countries are rekindled.
