The Turi viewpoint is one of the cityt’s main attractions. Diagonal to the site rises the Four Points by Sheraton hotel, next to Mall del Río. It is a strategic place both for tourists, who come to visit the city for pleasure, and for businessmen who come to Cuenca for work.
The building stands out along the Troncal de la Sierra highway. Elegant and imposing, the hotel rests in a privileged vantage point with no buildings around. This allows light to enter at any time of the day, decorating the 120 rooms with permanent natural illumination.
It’s the first franchise hotel in town. Hugo Rivera, General Manager, says that the main goal is for the building to “show consistency inside as a reflection of the rest of the city”. For Sheraton, the promise of value is to provide luxury service, preserving the essence of Cuenca both in its cuisine and in the cultural events that delight visitors every week; one of these events is the folkloric ballet show.
Responding to the demands to which the Cuenca palate is accustomed to, the typical dishes of the area are a specialty; however, other delicacies from other corners of the country are also offered, including ceviches and locros.
In addition, horchata, canelazo and even the traditional espumilla are part of the menu. Cook’s, its renowned restaurant, preserves delicious flavor and culinary savoir faire, while providing the right touch of the city’s flavor.
If you want to visit the Centro Histórico, look no further: organize your visit. The ride to downtown Cuenca is only 10 minutes. Sheraton also has contact with local artisans who also offer demonstrations of their art and sell traditional accessories such as the toquilla straw hat, bringing part of the culture and tradition to all guests.
The already dynamic and modern facilities converge with a local decoration that highlights Ecuador’s beautiful orchids flowers are real; some of them think, at first, that they are imitations,” says Hugo. It’s all about using the resources of the area: the decoration responds to the need to provide guests with a familiar and natural space, which combines with Cuenca’s tourism attractions.
Four Points by Sheraton continues improving its attention and service every day, with the aim of providing a worldclass experience that complements Cuenca’s growing tourism industry, preserving the flavors, culture and traditions of the city with the excellence we are used to at a truly worldrenowned Luxury Hotel Chain.
