Michigan Four Points reflags as Sheraton following renovation

ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN RockBridge Partners has completed an US$8.5 million renovation of the 197-key former Ann Arbor Four Points by Sheraton, which is now called Sheraton Ann Arbor Hotel.

Davidson Hotel Co. manages the property for RockBridge and will operate it under a franchise license agreement with Sheraton. The hotel is located near the University of Michigan.

“This hotel boasts a prime physical location off I-94, serving a strong local corporate community, as well as the academic and athletic departments within the University of Michigan. The market was underserved from a quality standpoint, and the newly-launched Sheraton will set a new standard of hospitality in Ann Arbor,” says John Belden, president and CEO of Davidson. “This becomes the 10th university-related property in our portfolio, and we now have the only Starwood product within 25 miles.”

The renovation of the 197 guestrooms focused on physical comfort and modern amenities. The hotel features the largest fitness center in the market, an indoor swimming pool, whirlpool, 15,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting space including the largest ballroom in Ann Arbor, and a full-service restaurant.

“We’re confident that with the improvements that were made to the rooms, lobby and guest technology offerings, this property will quickly become a market leader in Ann Arbor,” says James Merkel, president and CEO of RockBridge. “The lobby changes, in particular, are in tune with the desires of today’s travelers who want a comfortable place to interact while staying connected.”
