Expansions & Renovations

Sheraton Warsaw Hotel in Poland Unveils Renovation

WARSAW, PL. October 16, 2017 - Sheraton Warsaw Hotel, the flagship hotel for Sheraton Hotels & Resorts in Poland, today revealed its stunning redesign following a renovation of all guest rooms and its Sheraton Club Lounge. Led by London-based designer Alex Kravetz, the renovation draws on the property’s heritage and prestigious location on the corner of Three Crosses Square overlooking The Ujazdowski Park.

Sheraton Warsaw’s 350 spacious rooms and suites have been beautifully transformed into contemporary, residential spaces that feature elements inspired by high-end residential projects such as multilevel soft lighting, luxurious fabrics and high-quality textures and finishes.

Each room features the Sheraton Signature Sleep Experience, with a bed that eliminates pressure points and increases circulation, perfect for recovering after a long flight, an intense workout or scenic walking tour of Warsaw.

“It was a great pleasure to work on this project and create interiors which combine the hotel’s social heritage and enviable location, while adding modern and stylish design touches throughout”, said designer Alex Kravetz.

On the corner of Three Crosses Square overlooking The Ujazdowski Park, the Sheraton Warsaw Hotel is set amidst buzzling restaurants, governmental institutions and high fashion boutiques.

At the heart of the hotel is the event space, spread over two floors. The hotel also offers a fully refurbished Sheraton® Club Lounge, which blends modern design with a muted color palette, where guests can enjoy complimentary breakfast, drinks and snacks. When it comes to dining, guests have a choice of Asian specialties at the renowned inAzia, or refined Mediterranean favourites at The Olive Restaurant.

Coming Up In The December Online Hotel Business Review

Feature Focus
Hotel Law: Issues & Events
There is not a single area of a hotel’s operation that isn’t touched by some aspect of the law. Hotels and management companies employ an army of lawyers to advise and, if necessary, litigate issues which arise in the course of conducting their business. These lawyers typically specialize in specific areas of the law – real estate, construction, development, leasing, liability, franchising, food & beverage, human resources, environmental, insurance, taxes and more. In addition, issues and events can occur within the industry that have a major impact on the whole, and can spur further legal activity. One event which is certain to cause repercussions is Marriott International’s acquisition of Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide. This newly combined company is now the largest hotel company in the world, encompassing 30 hotel brands, 5,500 hotels under management, and 1.1 million hotel rooms worldwide. In the hospitality industry, scale is particularly important – the most profitable companies are those with the most rooms in the most locations. As a result, this mega- transaction is likely to provoke an increase in Mergers & Acquisitions industry-wide. Many experts believe other larger hotel companies will now join forces with smaller operators to avoid being outpaced in the market. Companies that had not previously considered consolidation are now more likely to do so. Another legal issue facing the industry is the regulation of alternative lodging companies such as Airbnb and other firms that offer private, short-term rentals. Cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles and Santa Monica are at the forefront of efforts to legalize and control short-term rentals. However, those cities are finding it’s much easier to adopt regulations on short-term rentals than it is to actually enforce them. The December issue of Hotel Business Review will examine these and other critical issues pertaining to hotel law and how some companies are adapting to them.
