Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc., in agreement with Grand Hotel di Como Srl, announced the opening of Sheraton® Lake Como Hotel, a strategic conversion located in Italy’s world famous lake region.
Surrounded by the majestic beauty of the Alps and the bright blue water of Lake Como, the hotel offers guests a visually captivating experience. Renovated by the renowned Italian architect, Ruggero Venelli, the property incorporates top-quality, natural materials and a neutral palette to produce warm interior spaces, and as a nod to local talent, the hotel features custom handcrafted furniture from acclaimed Italian designers.
“With beautiful new guestrooms, impressive culinary experiences and an array of meeting spaces within a spectacular surrounding, Sheraton Lake Como is an excellent addition to the brand’s global portfolio,” said Dave Marr, Global Brand Leader, Sheraton Hotels & Resorts.
“Located in one of Italy’s most sought-after destinations, the property not only strengthens the brand’s presence in a top tourism market in Europe, but also puts Sheraton one step closer to its goal of opening more than 150 new hotels over the next five years.”
Sheraton Lake Como offers 116 guestrooms, including four newly renovated suites, and a range of leisure facilities, from a Sheraton® Fitness Center to two outdoor swimming pools with a Jacuzzi.
The property also features a private park for sunbathing, jogging, and picnicking. Sheraton Lake Como features a large conference center with 10 modular rooms. Each room can hold between 40-150 people, and together, the 10 rooms can accommodate up to 1,000 guests.
