Staff writer ▼ | March 21, 2016
Starwood Hotels and Resorts signed three hotel deals in Cuba, the first time a U.S. hotel company has done so in almost 60 years.
Going to Cuba   Running for good starting position
Starwood beat out several other U.S. hospitality companies that have been trying to invest in hotels in Cuba.

Starwood received authorization from the U.S. Treasury Department to operate existing hotels in Cuba. The Hotel Inglaterra in Havana will join Starwood’s Luxury Collection brand.

The Hotel Quinta Avenida, also in Havana, will become a Four Points by Sheraton. Both hotels will undergo renovations before becoming Starwood properties later this year.

Starwood Hotels and Resorts also has signed a letter of intent to convert the Hotel Santa Isabel in Havana into a Luxury Collection property.
