    The last twelve months have been good for Starwood Hotels and Resorts, and the firm is continuing to accelerate its growth in Turkey with the opening of Four Points Istanbul Dudullu, the brand’s milestone entry into the country.Located on the Asian side of the city, the hotel is in the heart of Dudullu — Istanbul’s largest and up-and-coming industrial zone.

    Owned by Ever Group, the new Four Points hotel features 182 guest rooms, casual dining at The Restaurant, seven meeting spaces and a fitness centre. Guests will enjoy all of the brand’s popular amenities including fast and free WiFi throughout the hotel, complimentary bottled water, and a chance to sample authentic local craft beers as part of the signature Best Brews™ program.

    The hotel has received the prestigious Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) green building certification for its superior environmental responsibility in design.

    “We’re proud to introduce the Four Points brand to our rapidly expanding portfolio in Turkey, now home to seven of our 10 distinctive brands” said Michael Wale, President, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, EMEA. “Istanbul’s combination of rich culture and booming commerce will be the ideal setting for guests looking to experience stylish comfort and genuine service at an honest value.”

    Selen Ersü, Chairman of the Board at Ever Group said: “The hotel strengthens our partnership with Starwood and I’m thrilled that by the end of the year we will be introducing a second Four Points to Istanbul in the thriving area of Batisehir.”

    Starwood signed 50 new hotel deals in 2014 — the most in company history – and the brand will surpass 200 hotels in 2015. Starwood currently has 13 hotels in Turkey including five in Istanbul. This year, Starwood will open two more hotels in the country – Four Points by Sheraton Istanbul Batisehir and Sheraton Istanbul Atasehir bringing the company’s footprint in Turkey to 15 hotels under seven of its distinct lifestyle brands.
