Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: HOT) today announced that its Westin brand will soon inspire wellbeing in Wilmington, Delaware. Opening in March 2014, The Westin Wilmington will be connected to the Chase Center right at the heart of the city’s recently revitalized waterfront district. Owned by a joint venture between The Buccini/Pollin Group and Westport Capital, and managed by PM Hospitality Strategies, Inc., the newly constructed Westin hotel will provide 180 spacious rooms, the River Rock Kitchen restaurant, ample meeting space and spectacular views of the downtown Wilmington skyline and the entire Delaware Valley.

“We are thrilled to introduce our Westin brand to Wilmington as part of the city’s ongoing redevelopment of the waterfront district, which is now the city’s leading entertainment and cultural center,” said Brian Povinelli, Global Brand Leader for Westin Hotels & Resorts and Le Meridien. “The Westin Wilmington will be the perfect spot for both business and leisure travelers to recharge and revitalize with the help of all the Westin brand’s signature programs and amenities, designed to send them home feeling better than when they arrived.”

Located at 818 Shipyard Drive, The Westin Wilmington will be directly connected to The Chase Center, the city’s premier meeting and convention facility. The new hotel will offer easy access to the restaurants, shops, entertainment and cultural venues in the waterfront district including Frawley Stadium (home of the Wilmington Blue Rocks), Delaware Theater Company, Delaware Children’s Museum, Delaware Center for the Contemporary Arts and the 15-screen Penn Cinema, featuring IMAX offerings.
