SHERATON HOTELS OAHU
Sheraton Hotels is one of the best known brands of hotels in the world and can be found in almost every sought-after city and resort destination in the world. As the largest brand in Starwood® Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc, Sheraton offers a wide spectrum of comfort - from full-service hotels to luxurious resorts - and boasts more than 400 properties in more than 70 countries around the world.
The history of Sheraton starts in 1937 when Ernest Henderson and Robert Moore acquired their first hotel in Springfield, Massachusetts. Expansion was fast, and by the end of the first decade the two founders had purchased three hotels in Boston and several other properties on the Eastern Coast. Sheraton was now a reliable name in the hospitality industry, and became the first hotel chain to be listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
In 1949 Sheraton went international when it purchased two Canadian hotel chains. Expansion was fast internationally as well, and by the end of the 1960’s there were Sheraton hotels in Latin America and the Middle East. 1985 became a milestone year when Sheraton became the first international hotel chain to operate a hotel in the People's Republic of China.
In the April of 1995, Sheraton® Hotels & Resorts introduced Four Points® by Sheraton, a new, mid-scale hotel brand offering a full-service hotel experience at an affordable price. Four Points offered business and leisure travelers comfortable rooms and all the required amenities and services
In 1998 one of the leading hotel companies in the world, Starwood® Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. acquired Sheraton. Starwood's other brands include Westin Hotels & Resorts®, Four Points by Sheraton Hotels, St. Regis® Hotels & Resorts, The Luxury Collection® and W Hotels®.
There are four Sheraton Hotels in Oahu today, all in Waikiki. The Moana Hotel, nicknamed "The First Lady of Waikiki", was the first modern hotel to grace the shores of Waikiki. The Royal Hawaiian was the second Sheraton to come up on the beach, followed by the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani in the mid-fifties. It was named Princess Kaiulani as it was built on the Ainahau estate, former home to Princess Victoria Kaiulani. The fourth Sheraton, the Sheraton Waikiki, was built in the hotel boom of the 1970s.
Together the four Sheratons have played a significant role in the development of Waikiki into a world-class destination. Their architectural wonders have made them into landmarks, and their hospitality and accommodations are symbols of luxury and elegance. All the four Sheratons have taken great care to preserve the history and culture of Hawaii and have woven them into many of the activities and services offered.
