After twenty-one months of operation, Four Points Sheraton Havana continues to have perhaps the most restrictive reservation policy of any property located in the Republic of Cuba. The company has not commented as to the reason(s) for the reservation policy.
Neither the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the United States Department of the Treasury nor the Ministry of Tourism (MINTUR) of the Republic of Cuba require the restrictions.
On 27 June 2016, Stamford, Connecticut-based Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide (a subsidiary of Bethesda, Maryland-based Marriott International) commenced management of the Hotel Quinta Avenida Habana, which was re-branded as Four Points Sheraton Havana.
