“I would like to thank Kranjska Investicijska Druzba for choosing the Four Points brand as we open our first Starwood hotel in Slovenia,” said Michael Wale, president, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa & Middle East.

“With a steady increase in international arrivals over the last few years and its strategic location at the crossroads of main European cultural and trade routes, the time is right to enter Slovenia.
