Sheraton Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, today announced the designation of two exceptional hotels in Latin America, Sheraton Grand Panama and Sheraton Grand Los Cabos, Hacienda Del Mar, welcoming them to the brand’s premier tier of hotels recognized for their enticing destinations, distinguished designs, and excellence in service and guest experiences. The two Latin America Sheraton Grand properties join Sheraton Grand Rio Hotel & Resort in Brazil, which earned its designation when Sheraton Grand launched last year, as well as 27 other Sheraton Grand properties around the world. Sheraton Grand is one of many initiatives currently underway for Sheraton 2020, a comprehensive plan designed to solidify Sheraton as a leading global hotel brand of choice, everywhere.
“Sheraton is one of the most beloved brands in Latin America, having had first mover advantage in many of the region’s capitals, including Buenos Aires and Lima, to name a few,” said Jorge Giannattasio, Senior Vice President and Chief of Latin American Operations, Starwood Hotels & Resorts. “These two properties epitomize the excellence of the Sheraton brand across the board, and we are proud to recognize them with this prestigious designation.”
