I’m pretty excited to see that the first of Starwood’s planned hotels in Cuba is now taking reservations – it’s the Four Points by Sheraton – Havana

It’s in Havana, located in the upscale Miramar district.

I’m seeing rates for weekends in September from $190 (SPG Member Rate), which isn’t terrible but also isn’t great, considering that Havana is still extremely cheap by US traveler standards.

The chain hotels have already started raising rates (because they know people prefer to stay with the brand names they know) but if you go to AirBnB, you’ll find plenty of rooms in private casas for rent for under $50 a night and entire casas for under $150.

If you thought this would be a category 2 or 3 and a great use of points, I’m sorry to say it’s listed as a Category 6 which means 20k – 25k points per night. With rates around $200, this is obviously a poor use of points. With any luck, based on their average room rate in year 1, this will drop in category.

Have you stayed at the Four Points in Havana yet? I would love to hear reviews from anyone that has been!
