GF Management's Sheraton Great Valley Hotel Completes $4 Million Redevelopment

FRAZER, Pa., June 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- After completing a $4 million redevelopment, the Sheraton Great Valley Hotel is uniquely qualified to welcome guests and ensure they feel right at home, whether staying for business or leisure. The property is committed to the Sheraton Hotels & Resorts brand mission to bring people together through shared experiences. The property has created numerous opportunities to connect—to home, to colleagues, and to friends, both old and new.

The comfortable and charming Sheraton Great Valley Hotel, located in the Malvern area of Chester County, just outside of Philadelphia, as well as in the Brandywine Valley, is ideal for both business and leisure travelers. Set amid peaceful scenery and a wealth of unique attractions and family activities, including the King of Prussia Mall, Longwood Gardens, QVC Studios, and the Downingtown Country Club, the Hotel is in the center of one of America's favorite vacation destinations.

Noticeable upgrades start in the Hotel's new main lobby, where guests will enjoy an updated Link@Sheraton(SM) experienced with Microsoft®. Guests can utilize this space and come together to meet, connect or relax. Complimentary amenities include fully-wired workstations, free WiFi, newspapers, printing services, TV and more. The Hotel is now proudly serving Starbucks®, and has an impressive 'Grab & Go' menu.

Guests can grab a snack, catch up with colleagues or get down to business at the Community Smart Table in the communal style atmosphere with comfortable seating.

All 193 spacious guest rooms in the Hotel have been completely renovated. The property is proud to offer PURE® Allergy Friendly Rooms designed specifically for guests with allergies or asthma. Each 100% Non-Smoking Guest Room now features a 42" Flat Screen Television and Sheraton Sweet Sleeper® Bed. Suites, Club Level Rooms, and Executive Club Level Rooms are available upon request.

With newly refreshed meeting and executive board rooms featuring high back traditional tufted leather executive office chairs, the Sheraton Great Valley Hotel is the perfect location for meetings and events. From intimate events to corporate functions, the property provides the tools guests need to plan the perfect gathering. Guests also have the opportunity to earn Starpoints® and eligible nights toward SPG elite status by booking meetings or events with the Sheraton Great Valley Hotel.

Fitness-minded guests will find plenty to help them stay in shape when staying at the Hotel, including a brand-new fitness center with state-of-the-art Life Fitness Equipment, and a newly resurfaced pool and sauna.

Guests looking for the perfect dining experience will not be let down by the White Horse Tavern and Wine Bar, the Hotel's on-site restaurant. Originally built in 1715, the White Horse Tavern of the Brandywine Valley was one of the first licensed public houses in America. Extensive renovations have created a more intimate atmosphere. With white trim and ornate decor, window embellishments and four fireplaces, the restaurant now radiates a classic colonial ambiance. Those looking for a relaxed night out will love the new wine bar, which has retained its pub-style charm while adding an all-new selection of top-tier wines.

In addition to its physical renovations, the White Horse Tavern and Wine Bar has also revamped its menu to support local farmers and provide fresh, farm-to-table meals. The focus is on using locally sourced ingredients in recipes whenever possible. The White Horse Tavern and Wine Bar is committed to offering delectable menu selections for all guests, including those with special dietary requests.

Restaurant renovations include the recently launched outdoor space. "The Patio at the White Horse Tavern and Wine Bar" is an outside oasis where guests can bask in the sunshine on the newly renovated patio, complete with delicious farm-to-table fare, refreshing cocktails and lush landscaping. This space can also be reserved for private events.

GF Management, a leading national hotel ownership and management company purchased the Sheraton Great Valley Hotel, through an affiliate just a year ago in June 2014. "We determined that this acquisition was a great opportunity to expand GF's owned portfolio with a top quality asset" said Stan Glander, Chief Operating Officer for GF Management. "This extensive renovation has demonstrated our valued partnership with Starwood through our commitment to quality capital reinvestment."

GF Management now owns and/or asset manages four premiere properties within the Starwood Hotels and Resorts portfolio, consisting of nearly 1,200 guest rooms and suites.

All are invited to experience the recent changes and renovations at the Sheraton Great Valley Hotel's Open House on Thursday, June 25, 2015 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM. Attendees will enjoy a night filled with refreshing cocktails, menu samplings and hospitality.
