Lagos in Nigeria is one of a number of cities around the world which will get a new Four Points by Sheraton hotel this year.

The American-based group has unveiled a global pipeline of 16 new hotels that will open in the coming months. Eight new Four Points properties are slated to open in established North American markets and another eight set for international business and leisure travel hubs in Asia and Africa.

"Four Points by Sheraton continues to experience meaningful growth around the world based, in part, on the flexibility of the brand that makes it an appealing option in a variety of markets and settings," said Simon Turner, president of global development. "For example, in 2010, we will debut the brand with new-build hotels in Nigeria, Bangkok and Phuket. While in North America, where the brand already enjoys market leading presence, we are seeing growth through conversion and adaptive reuse projects."

In China, three Four Points properties are expected to open in the coming year in Lianyungang, a centre of international trade known as China's "east-west freight corridor"; the port city of Taicang, whose thriving economy boasts investment projects from the US, UK, and Germany; and Tai'An, home to spectacular Mount Taishan, a UNESCO World Cultural and Natural Heritage site.

"Guests consistently tell us how much they appreciate the great value and stylish comfort of Four Points , especially at a time when travel can be so challenging," said Brian McGuinness, senior vice-president of specialty select brands for Starwood. "The brand's powerful global growth proves that travellers find simple pleasures like a great local craft beer at the end of a long day, free bottled water, free and fast WiFi, and a great night's sleep universally appealing."

In Canada, Four Points will open hotels this year in Niagara Falls, Ontario; Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; and Calgary, Alberta.

In the United States, properties are planned for San Jose, CA; Oklahoma City, OK; Memphis, TN; and Long Island City, NY.

The Four Points brand's growth follows a $1 billion rejuvenation of the brand. Four Points by Sheraton has 148 properties in 24 countries.
