Renovations Brought a Four Points by Sheraton to Downtown San Diego
Bharat Lall serves as president and CEO of Pinnacle Hotels USA, based in San Diego, California. Within the Pinnacle brand, the experienced real estate entrepreneur owns and manages nine hotel properties in California and Texas. Bharat Lall and his team work to offer high-quality experiences to all guests at locations that include the Four Points by Sheraton San Diego Downtown.
Situated close to San Diego’s convention center and the beauties of Balboa Park, the Four Points recently underwent extensive renovations. Pinnacle Hotels purchased the distinctive round building in 2011 and, after spending $3.5 million to upgrade it, unveiled its new look in 2014. The updates included a new lobby area, a restaurant and bar, gym facilities, and meeting room space.
The original Four Points was constructed as a Holiday Inn in 1970. Pinnacle’s goal in the renovations of the 220-room hotel was to offer a more upscale lodging experience under the Sheraton brand, as well as that of affiliated Starwood Hotels and Resorts. The renovation and rebranding positioned the hotel as the first Four Points by Sheraton in the downtown part of San Diego.
