If you’re looking for a comfortable room pre and post work hours, then Four Points by Sheraton Bengaluru, Whitefield, offers the perfect choice for a leisure staycation or for a business traveller.

Since you’re saving on the airfare, why not pamper yourself in a different manner by exploring your own neighbourhood or try a new neighbourhood in a relaxed manner. You can catch a play at the Jagriti Theatre at walking distance, shop at the few malls nearby or play golf at the golf course at a stone’s throw distance. An entrepreneurship meet takes place every weekend here where you can participate in the morning after a relaxed siesta the night before at Four Points by Sheraton.

A walk through the hotel: Enter the spacious lobby and a Nandi Bull art installation welcomes you. Parveen Shah, General Manager, Four Points by Sheraton is extremely gracious and affable. There are 102 elegantly furnished rooms well stocked with workdesk, flat-screen TVs, seating areas, minibars, as well as tea and coffee machine. With stylish rooms, comfortable beds and productive workspaces, paired with delicious breakfast and great Best Brews, it has every element that a guest needs.

Signature Brand restaurants: Eat your heart out at The Eatery, a lively, all-day dining restaurant that serves delicious meals, quick bites in a cosy, casual ambience. Enjoy a range of international cuisines, either at the buffet or with à la carte dishes. We liked the dosa chef who whips up crispy, wafer-thin fresh dosas every morning and evening. Kick back and relax at Best Brews after a long day with a great craft beer. There’s a vast selection of local and international beers, bottled, draught and seasonal selections.

Brand’s Signature elements and facilities: Well equipped Fitness Center with Swimming Pool, Library Lounge, Meeting and Conference Rooms and more.
