Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE:HOT) today announced its world-renowned Sheraton brand has expanded its footprint in greater Minneapolis with a strategic conversion in Bloomington, Minnesota. Sheraton Bloomington opened today, just five miles from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP). Owned by WB Hotel Partners, LLC, and managed by Wischermann Partners, Inc., the former Sofitel hotel has begun a comprehensive $8 million renovation to transform the property into a modern upper upscale hotel with all of the Sheraton brand’s signature amenities and services.

“This strategic conversion in the upscale Minneapolis suburb of Bloomington gives Sheraton an even greater presence in one of the nation’s busiest metropolitan areas, as we continue to build momentum in markets worldwide,” said Hoyt Harper, Global Brand Leader, Sheraton Hotels & Resorts. “Sheraton Bloomington provides travelers with a stylish, comfortable and social atmosphere where they can enjoy all the brand’s recently enhanced signature services and amenities in an ideal location near major corporate headquarters and top attractions.”

All 282 guest rooms will be fully renovated and equipped with the all-white Sheraton Sweet Sleeper® bed, designed to meet AAA’s Five Diamond Award® criteria, as well as an oversized work desk, ergonomic chair, high-speed Internet, and LCD flat panel television. Within six months, Sheraton Bloomington will implement the Sheraton brand’s signature Link@Sheraton® experienced with Microsoft® – a relaxed space with complimentary wireless broadband where guests can socialize and connect with friends, both old and new, plus a Link Café.

Perfect for meetings of all sizes and social functions, Sheraton Bloomington offers 14,257 square feet of flexible meeting space with all the latest in meetings technology and a full-service restaurant and lounge. Soon after opening, the entrance, lobby and public spaces will receive a design upgrade and the hotel will offer a Sheraton Club Lounge, Club rooms, and a fitness facility featuring the brand’s revolutionary new health and fitness program, Sheraton Fitness by Core Performance.
