First Westin hotel to open in Beirut

Published October 30th, 2000 - 02:00 GMT

Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide, a leading American hotel and resort management company, inaugurated the Westin Royal Plaza Hotel in Beirut, making it the first Westin hotel in the Middle East.  


Recently, Starwood signed a contract to manage the Al-Karma hotel in Bhamdoun under its Four Points brand name and will rename it Four Points Bhamdoun. Last month, Starwood signed a management agreement with the Coral Beach and Sahara Inn hotels in Lebanon to manage both hotels under its Sheraton brand name. The firm also signed a deal last year to manage the Bristol Hotel in Beirut.  


Starwood owns 720 hotels and resorts worldwide, including 70 hotels in the Middle East. It operates several brands such as the Luxury Collection, Sheraton, Westin, and Four Points. ― ( Lebanon Invest )
