 Kor Hotel Group Converting The Four Points by
Sheraton-Santa Monica to the Sheraton Delfina


Santa Monica, Calif. - August 2, 2004 - The Four Points by Sheraton, Santa Monica, has launched the second phase of its major $11 million renovation.  Under the management of the Kor Hotel Group, the hotel is repositioning from the three-star Four Points brand to a full-service, luxury four-star Sheraton hotel, officially joining Kor's distinctive portfolio of luxury boutique and flagged hotels.   

"We have received great response from both business and leisure travelers who have already experienced our guestroom redesign and upgrades," said General Manager Michael D'Amodio.  "Once renovations are complete throughout the hotel, we will certainly be one of Santa Monica's leading properties with stylish, custom designed accommodations and four-star service, conveniently located only steps from the ocean."  

Renovations of the hotel lobby, lounge, fitness center and pool are currently underway and the new design will reflect the sophisticated urban chic style and relaxed beach attitude of the new guestrooms and suites that debuted this spring.  Redesigned in a palette of Espresso brown and Tibetan blue, the guest room appointments include contemporary Lucite lamps, textured leather headboards, Sweet Sleeper beds, flat-screen televisions, high-speed internet access and digital safes.  

The Penthouse Ballroom - the only one of its kind in town - will also undergo significant upgrades and reconfiguration to increase meeting and event space and further enhance its sweeping ocean and coastline views.  The pool will gain a resort feel with the addition of cabanas and tropical landscaping, which guests will be able to view from the new poolside state-of-the-art fitness center.  

The Four Points by Sheraton Santa Monica, 530 W. Pico Boulevard, Santa Monica, California, will convert to the Sheraton Delfina upon completion of the lobby renovation scheduled for October 2004.
