The renovation, which included all guest rooms and Sheraton Club Lounge, was led by London-based designer Alex Kravetz and draws on the property’s heritage and prestigious location on the corner of Three Crosses Square overlooking The Ujazdowski Park.
Sheraton Warsaw offers 350 spacious rooms and suites, each of them beautifully transformed by Alex Kravetz who has created a truly residential look appealing to business people, high ranking diplomats and leisure travelers. The interiors offer a series of well-connected spaces where business and pleasure seamlessly combine. The rooms feature elements inspired by high-end residential projects such as multilevel soft lighting, luxurious fabrics and high-quality textures and finishes.
Custom-designed furniture was specifically created to both inspire and serve its practical purpose to provide an effortless stay. Each room features an opening window and Sheraton Signature Sleep Experience, with a bed that eliminates pressure points and increases circulation, perfect for recovering after a long flight, an intense workout or scenic walking tour of Warsaw.
“It was a great pleasure to work on this project and create interiors which combine the hotel’s social heritage and enviable location, while adding modern and stylish design touches throughout”, said designer Alex Kravetz.
“The restoration is a milestone for the Sheraton brand in Poland. Since its opening, the Sheraton Warsaw has been a preferred venue for socialites, heads of state and business leaders, recognized for its excellence in service and guest experience. The revamped icon will be a shining representation of the Sheraton brand in Poland”, said Gonçalo Duarte Silva, General Manager of Sheraton Warsaw Hotel.
On the corner of Three Crosses Square overlooking The Ujazdowski Park, the Sheraton Warsaw Hotel is set amidst buzzling restaurants, governmental institutions and high fashion boutiques.

To this day, the venue remains one of Warsaw’s most coveted ballrooms, complete with its famous culinary offering and high-quality service.
