LJUBLJANA, SLOVENIA—Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. today announced the signing of Four Points by Sheraton Ljubljana Mons.
Owned by Kranjska Investicijska Družba d.o.o., the hotel will mark the entry of Starwood into Slovenia when it opens in 2014.
Four Points by Sheraton Ljubljana Mons will be located just 10 minutes from the centre of Slovenia’s capital city Ljubljana and 15 minutes from the international airport. The Four Points by Sheraton Ljubljana Mons is a conversion of an existing hotel. It will be added to the Four Points by Sheraton portfolio following a renovation and re-branding process.
Michael Wale, president, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa and Middle East, said in a statement, “With a steady increase in international arrivals over the last few years and its strategic location at the crossroads of main European cultural and trade routes, the time is right to enter Slovenia. Four Points will provide guests with a fresh, new hotel experience at an affordable price point in the country’s capital city.”
Four Points by Sheraton Ljubljana Mons will feature 114 guestrooms including three junior suites, a restaurant and bar, nearly 850 square meters of meeting and event space, including a large ballroom, two meeting rooms and three boardrooms, as well as a fitness center and parking facilities.
“Growing our mid-market brands in key European markets is core to our development strategy,” stated Bart Carnahan, SVP Acquisitions & Development, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa & Middle East. “Four Points by Sheraton has one of the strongest pipelines in the Starwood brand portfolio and continues to be an increasingly attractive choice for owners and developers.”

In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
