Amongst all the hotel brands, Starwood has been one of the most ambitious and aggressive in their expansions. Hence there is no surprise when they commit to plans that change the course of history now and then. This week they became the first big American hospitality chain to make a presence in Havana, since the Cuban revolution. They will manage the Cuba Four Points by Sheraton on Quinta Avenida, owned by the Cuban military.
The hotel has 186 rooms with prices starting from $246 a night. It was previously known as Quinta Avenida hotel. Shortly, Starwood will also manage the iconic Inglaterra hotel, which first opened in 1875. Foes are trying to turn friends, and that is the way forwards. This space looks like it would soon be filled with investment opportunities and rebuilding relationships.
