Starwood Expands Presence In Brazil With Upcoming Sheraton Da Bahia Hotel In Salvador

When it reopens as Sheraton da Bahia Hotel in Q1 2013, it will feature 284 guest rooms, including 16 suites, all featuring the brand’s signature all-white Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Bed and an exclusive Sheraton Club Lounge. The heart of the lobby will feature the brand’s Link@Sheraton experienced with Microsoft ® - Sheraton’s signature social hub where connections, whether face-to-face or via webcam, can take place. The hotel will also offer two restaurants, the brand’s signature Sheraton Fitness programmed by Core Performance ® with a spacious work out space, a 1,938 square feet spa with a salon and sauna, swimming pool, business center, and a large meetings and event facility comprising more than 27,000 square feet of flexible space with capacity for over 400 people.

The hotel is strategically located in the city center and has direct access to Sete de Setembro Avenue, a major roadway that connects the city.

“This property presented a great conversion opportunity for Starwood based on the strength of the Sheraton brand in Brazil. It follows other successful conversions, including the Sheraton São Paulo WTC and the Sheraton Vitoria Hotel, which opened earlier this year,” said Ricardo Suarez, Vice President of Acquisitions and Development for Starwood Hotels & Resorts in Latin America. “Starwood is excited about the continued expansion of the iconic Sheraton brand in Latin America. Today, we have the largest upper-upscale footprint in the region with more than 30 Sheraton hotels in 11 countries. In 2013, we will continue to bring the brand to the most important cities in Latin America as part our aggressive expansion strategy.”

Salvador is one of the most prominent tourist destination in Brazil, and is considered one of the country’s most important ports and international trading centers. The hotel will cater to both business and leisure travelers who are looking for an internationally branded hotel they know and trust.
