Sheraton Hotels & Resorts has opened the Lone Star State’s 15th Sheraton hotel, the Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel & Conference Center in Georgetown, TX, parent company Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide announced today.

“Texas is one of the top destinations for both leisure and business travelers alike, and an important market for the Sheraton brand to continue its growth in,” said Bob Jacobs, vice president of brand management, Sheraton North America. “The opening of Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel & Conference Center underscores our focus on continuously enhancing our portfolio with even more compelling options for our guests and is a valued asset to the brand.”

Located 27 miles outside of Austin, the hotel has 222 guest rooms, a heated outdoor pool, a fitness center, a Sheraton Club Lounge, an open-concept lobby, and a signature restaurant, not to mention a 30,000-square-foot conference center that includes a 16,000-square-foot ballroom and four breakout rooms.

“There is no doubt this is a game-changing project for our city,” said Georgetown Mayor Dale Ross. “Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel will allow us to introduce the ‘Most Beautiful Town Square in Texas,’ our park system, and other places that make our city unique to visitors outside our region. This project is positioned for the highest level of success and we couldn’t be more excited to have this first-class facility located in Georgetown.”
