Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide is expanding its portfolio in Turkey with the launch of a Four Points by Sheraton hotel in Istanbul.

The new-build, Four Points by Sheraton Istanbul Dudullu, scheduled to open at the end of 2014, will mark the entry of the Four Points by Sheraton brand in Turkey, and will be the first Starwood hotel to open on the Asian side of Istanbul.

Located in IMES, Turkey’s largest industrial area in Dudullu, the 182-room property is being touted to be one of the largest hotels on the Asian side of Istanbul, providing an all-day dining restaurant, bar and fitness centre.

Event facilities will include four meeting rooms and three small boardrooms.

The hotel will feature all of the brand’s signature elements, including the Four Comfort Bed and free bottled water in all rooms and suites, complimentary Wi-Fi in all public areas, and local beers with Best Brews.

"The hotel will mark Starwood’s entry into the Asian side of Istanbul."

The interior design of the hotel has been awarded to Kreatif Mimarlik, a renowned Turkish consultancy with extensive hotel design experience.

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Europe, Africa and Middle East president Michael Wale said: "The hotel will mark Starwood’s entry into the Asian side of Istanbul and become an ideal leisure spot to watch the most exciting sporting events while enjoying a fine selection of local brews."

Presently, there are ten Starwood hotels representing five brands in operation across Turkey, of which four are located in Istanbul: Sheraton Istanbul Maslak Hotel, Sheraton Istanbul Atakoy Hotel, W Istanbul, and Le Méridien Istanbul Etiler.
