Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchising company with approximately 9,300 hotels across 90 countries, today announced plans for further growth in China as travel in the country continues to show encouraging signs of recovery.
The Company will add five new hotels to its Ramada® by Wyndham brand this quarter, with three of the hotels already open: the 142-room Ramada by Wyndham Luoyang Downtown, the 191-room Ramada by Wyndham Jianyang and the 140-room Ramada by Changsha Wuguang. Joining them later this month will be the 101-room Ramada by Wyndham Wuhan Qingshan and 179-room Ramada by Wyndham Kunming Yiliang.
“As travel in China continues to pick up, Wyndham and its brands are well poised to meet the budding demand,” said Joon Aun Ooi, president, Asia Pacific, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “People are eager to travel again, and Chinese travelers, in particular, are seeking domestic destinations more than ever before. Building on what is already one of our most popular brands in China, these new openings under Ramada by Wyndham further strengthen our presence in key cities that we know are important to Chinese travelers while sending a message that when they’re ready to travel, Wyndham is ready to welcome them.”
