The New York City borough of Queens will soon be home to a dual-hotel development featuring two popular Starwood brands. Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: HOT) today announced plans to open Four Points by Sheraton Flushing and Element Flushing in September 2015. Owned by Century Construction Group, the hotels will boast a convenient location, just ten minutes from LaGuardia Airport (LGA).
“This exciting, new project will combine our affordable and stylish Four Points brand with our eco-wise Element brand in one location within the vibrant borough of Queens,” said Brian McGuinness, Senior Vice President of Specialty Select Brands for Starwood. “Travelers will enjoy two fresh options at an affordable price point, within close proximity of numerous New York City attractions.”
Four Points by Sheraton Flushing will feature 178 stylish and comfortable guest rooms, 1,585 square feet of state-of-the-art meeting space and dining service. Element Flushing will offer 118 rooms, a select-service restaurant and 1,015 square feet of flexible meeting space with modular furnishings and a flexible layout. The two hotels will share a 24-hour fitness center and heated indoor pool.
Boasting the second largest pipeline among all Starwood brands, Four Points by Sheraton has more than 175 hotels worldwide in 2013, fueled by the success of its “best for business” proposition for travelers seeking great hotels at great rates. Four Points by Sheraton Flushing will be the brand’s fourth hotel in New York City.
Launched in 2008, Starwood’s trailblazing Element brand has made history as the first major hotel brand to mandate that all properties pursue the United States Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification for high-performance buildings. More than just a "green" hotel brand, Element is designed to provide the balance that business and leisure travelers need to thrive on the road. Element Flushing will join Element New York Times Square West as the second Element in New York City.
