Starwood is to introduce its two largest brands - Westin and Sheraton - to two new multi-billion dollar integrated entertainment complexes in Manila, the bustling capital of the Philippines.

"We are thrilled to enter the vibrant, booming market in the Philippines, and believe there is ample demand for the Westin brand's signature programs and amenities, as well as the Sheraton brand's unique blend of hospitality, connectivity and comfort," said Chuck Abbott, Regional Vice President, Southeast Asia, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide, Inc. "Resorts World Bayshore and Resorts World Manila are expected to be among the region's preeminent entertainment destinations, and Starwood is pleased to have been selected by their respective owners to provide world class brands and services to visitors and guests."

Sheraton Manila

Sheraton Manila Hotel, as part of the Resorts World Manila complex, is to be situated in Metro Manila, the Philippines' seat of government. It will be located directly across Terminal 3 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, adjacent to the Villamor Golf Course, and a 10-minute drive to Makati City, Manila's central business district. Resorts World Manila, comprised of hotels, restaurants, gaming facilities, entertainment options and a luxury mall, is set to join the ranks of highly successful integrated entertainment hubs such as Resorts World Genting in Malaysia, and Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore.

"We are happy to welcome back the Sheraton brand which will definitely contribute to the continued success of Resorts World Manila. With the entry of the Sheraton brand, we expect that we will be able to reach approximately 1500 hotel rooms in the Resorts World Manila complex, which is centrally located in close proximity from the airport," said Kingson U. Sian, President of Travellers International Hotel Group, Inc.

Offering 350 guest rooms and suites, Sheraton Manila Hotel will be a part of the third phase of the project to be completed by 2017.
