KRAKOW, POLAND—Sheraton Hotels & Resorts has designated Sheraton Krakow Hotel as Sheraton Grand Krakow, entering into the brand’s upper tier of hotels.
Joining 25 other Sheraton Grand properties worldwide, Sheraton Grand Krakow is the first Sheraton Grand property in Poland. Located on the bank of the Vistula River and close to the famous Wawel Castle, the hotel is undergoing a major restoration set to be completed at the beginning of 2017.
“We are thrilled to build on the brand’s proud heritage in East and Central Europe by launching our first Sheraton Grand in Poland” said Michael Wale, president, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa and Middle East. “The Sheraton Grand Krakow highlights our commitment to the Polish market where we already have six successful hotels and plan to further grow our portfolio.”
The hotel offers 232 fully renovated rooms and suites. Reimagined by London-based designer Alex Kravetz, various textures and furnishings were composed to create a sophisticated layered detailing in all elements of the new look, according to the company. A sense of heritage is expressed through patterns and commissioned art pieces by a local artist. The property also features refreshed meeting facilities and offers four restaurants and bars including the Roof Top Terrace Bar & Lounge.
“The entire management team and hotel associates have been gearing up for this special designation which is a great recognition of the memorable service experiences that we provide to our guests. We are all very proud to become a true flagship property for the brand in East and Central Europe. The renovated rooms look amazing and we are happy to further elevate the guest experience in our hotel” said Angela Saliba, general manager, Sheraton Grand Krakow.
