Wyndham Hotel Group is strategically expanding its footprint in the region, focusing its efforts in key markets including Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Peru and Panama. With the addition of the Ramada Encore Guadalajara, the company now boasts over 12,000 rooms in Latin America.
Wyndham Hotel Group reached this important milestone, in part, by developing strategic relationships with existing portfolios and established national hotel chains. Earlier this year, the company announced an agreement with Hoteles Costa del Sol to franchise three new Ramada hotels throughout Peru in Cusco, Tumbes and Chiclayo. Wyndham Hotel Group also entered into an agreement with Brazilian-based real estate company, EmCorp, to launch 20 properties across Brazil under the Wyndham and Super 8 brand product offerings.
“We are very excited about the growth of our brands in Latin America since they align with the needs of the growing middle class and the increase of international travelers to the region,” said Daniel del Olmo, Wyndham Hotel Group’s SVP and managing director of Latin America, in an announcement. “In fact, the region now has the highest pipeline percentage growth within Wyndham Hotel Group. With 15 renowned hotel brands ranging from economy to upscale to extended stay, we provide travelers with the right hotel for their travel experience and developers with flexibility and an appreciation of their local environment.”
The Ramada Encore Guadalajara is a 130-room hotel which provides free wireless internet access, complimentary continental breakfast, 24-hour complimentary business center services, lounge area, and fitness facility. Guestrooms include wooden floors, bathroom pods featuring a walk-in power shower, and The HUB, the Encore tier’s multipurpose space where guests can eat, work, or relax.
