The Sheraton Grand Tbilisi Metechi Palace has completed a renovation of its guest rooms and public spaces.

The 28-year-old hotel in the Georgian capital has 220 rooms, indoor and outdoor pools, meeting spaces and a Sheraton Club Lounge.

Marriott International, which acquired Sheraton when it merged with Starwood in 2016, said the property has been “transformed”.

Rooms have been given a more contemporary design, with pastel interiors featuring artwork by a Georgian photographer.

The property also has 2,600 sqm of event space, including twelve meeting rooms, pre-function areas and the largest hotel ballroom in Tbilisi.

“Following a stunning transformation of this iconic property, we are very proud to welcome the Sheraton Grand Tbilisi Metechi Palace into this premier tier of hotels,” said John Licence, Vice President Premium and Select Brands Europe at Marriott.

“The designation of the Sheraton Grand status celebrates a new era for the renovated hotel, maintaining its reputation as the most recognised gathering place in Tbilisi.”

Scott McCoy, Marriott’s VP of Global Operations, recently spoke to Business Traveller about the group’s plans to reinvigorate the Sheraton brand:

Georgia is one of the fastest-growing tourist destinations in Europe. Upmarket hotel brand Wyndham Grand opened its first property in the capital earlier this month, and a Radisson Red is set to open next year.
