Starwood Hotels & Resorts will open its new Sheraton Albuquerque Airport Hotel in New Mexico, US, on 8 December 2010.

The hotel, the second Sheraton in the US state, is managed by Prism Hotels & Resorts.

The 15-storey, 276-room property recently completed a seven-month, $14m renovation in preparation for its rebranding.

The hotel features 1114m² of meeting and banquet space, a restaurant and a lounge.

The opening is part of the Sheraton brand’s strategic expansion plan to add 50 new hotels to its portfolio over the next three years.
