WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Four Points by Sheraton Bangor Airport boasts a whole new look following the completion of a $9 million renovation in April 2009. Located in Bangor, Maine, the property made significant upgrades to its lobby, restaurant, guest rooms and exterior as part of the Four Points by Sheraton global revitalization campaign. In the past five years, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. (NYSE: HOT) and its licensees have invested more than $1 billion in Four Points by Sheraton hotels with major property renovations, conversion and new-build hotels. 70 percent of the Four Points portfolio has turned over in the last five years due to strategic efforts to improve the quality and consistency of the hotels.
As a key part of its renovation, Four Points by Sheraton Bangor Maine completely redesigned and expanded its restaurant, Godfrey's Grille and Lounge. Popular among guests and locals, the restaurant features exciting new menus featuring fresh, native seafood prepared by the hotel's new executive chef, as well as all-new furnishings, china and silver. A new double-sided fireplace installed in the lobby also faces the restaurant, creating a comfortable, inviting atmosphere.
The hotel also added a brand-new indoor pool and fitness center, improved signage on the hotel's exterior, and enhanced energy efficiency by switching to natural gas. The upgraded lobby and Family Room create the perfect setting for guests to socialize, grab a cup of fresh coffee and pop open their laptops to use the hotel's, free high-speed Internet. Ideal for both corporate and social functions, the hotel's expanded and renovated meeting facilities now offer 2,982 square feet of space and include five meeting rooms and an executive boardroom.
