It’s an historic moment for Cuba and for Starwood Hotels and Resorts. The hotel giant will soon become the first American hotel chain to open in Cuba since the 1950s.

Starwood plans to renovate and manage the Hotel Inglaterra on the Parque Central near Old Havana and the Hotel Quinta Avenida, a 186-room business hotel in the district of Miramar, according to the New York Times. The hotels will begin operating under the Starwood flag this year, the company told the Times.

Starwood will not own the hotels, which are controlled by Cuban state enterprises that include a military conglomerate.
