Starwood expands footprint in Turkey

Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide has announced that it has signed an agreement with Tanriverdi Mensucat Sanayii to open a new-build Sheraton hotel in Samsun, Turkey. 

Scheduled to debut late 2014, Sheraton Samsun Hotel will mark Starwood’s entry into the emerging city and will be the company’s eleventh hotel in Turkey. 

The Sheraton brand continues to grow around the globe and remains on track to open its 500th hotel by 2015.

Sheraton Samsun Hotel will be ideally located in the heart of Samsun on the Black Sea coast, three kilometres from the city centre and 25 kilometres from Samsun Carsamba Airport. 

The hotel will feature 200 guest rooms and 20 suites, all with scenic views of the Black Sea. 

The 29-storey hotel will be the largest hotel and the tallest building in Samsun.

The hotel is being designed by Turkish architectural firm, Piramit Mimarlik, together with Istanbul-based interior designer, Kreatif Mimarlik.
