Commenting on the opening, Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa and Middle East president Michael Wale said: “We’re proud to introduce the Four Points brand to our rapidly expanding portfolio in Turkey, now home to seven of our 10 distinctive brands.

“Istanbul’s combination of rich culture and booming commerce will be the ideal setting for guests looking to experience stylish comfort and genuine service at an honest value.”

Selen Ersü, chairman of the board at Ever Group added: “Four Points Istanbul Dudullu will be a great meeting point for sports enthusiasts as well as business travellers, ideally situated in the buzzing industrial zone of Dudullu. The hotel strengthens our partnership with Starwood and I’m thrilled that by the end of the year we will be introducing a second Four Points to Istanbul in the thriving area of Batisehir.”

Starwood signed 50 new deals for the Four Points brand in 2014 – the most in the group’s company history, and the brand will surpass 200 hotels in 2015.

Starwood currently has 13 hotels in Turkey including five in Istanbul. This year, Starwood will open two more hotels in the country – Four Points by Sheraton Istanbul Batisehir and Sheraton Istanbul Atasehir bringing the company’s footprint in Turkey to 15 hotels under seven brands.
