Four Points needs you to make Biloxi a star hotel

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - This email was sent to WLOX News on Sunday.  It came from Four Point Sheraton general manager Kenny Glavan.

"I am asking a big favor. Our hotel has been selected as one of 5 finalist to win a Signature Sales Makeover contest. If you have the time if you could please click on the Signature Worldwide link and select the Final 5 tab on the left of the page," Glavan wrote.

Glavan helped open the Four Points in Biloxi.  Before Hurricane Katrina, the property at the foot of I-110 and Highway 90 was considered a rundown apartment building.  Initially, a condo developer looked at investing in the old Gulf Towers building.  But in the end, developers decided the Four Points hotel flag was a better investment.

That hotel opened last year.

"If you would click on the radio button next to Four Points by Sheraton Biloxi to cast a vote we would appreciate it. We are the only hotel representing Mississippi and the Mississippi Gulf Coast! Thank you for your consideration," Glavan wrote.

The Four Points Sheraton in Biloxi has 195 rooms.  When it opened last July, it created 80 jobs.
