BERLIN—Wyndham Hotel Group announced the groundbreaking of its first Super 8 hotel in Germany, the 160-room Super 8 Munich. Developed by GS Star GmbH, the hotel is the first of 10 Super 8 hotels to be developed in the country as part of a previously signed multi-year agreement between Tristar Hotel GmbH and Wyndham Hotel Group.
“We are delighted to pass this significant milestone in launching the Super 8 brand in Germany and look forward to growing the brand’s presence right across Europe, the Middle East and Africa where we continue to see buoyant demand for more affordable hotel accommodation,” said Rui Barros, Wyndham Hotel Group’s senior vice president and managing director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Expected to open in autumn 2015, Super 8 Munich will be a six-story, all-new construction hotel and the first in Europe to feature the brand’s newest design concept. This innovative design includes a multi-functional lobby and guest rooms which meet the needs of modern travelers while enabling more economical construction and operation.
Upon opening, Super 8 will be the fifth of 15 Wyndham Hotel Group brands to have a presence in Germany. Earlier this year, the company announced that its portfolio in the country had surpassed 100 hotels under four brands.
