BERLIN—Wyndham Hotel Group announced its portfolio of hotels in Germany has grown to more than 100, following the recent openings of a further eight hotels across the country in association with hotel management company Grand City Hotels.
Wyndham Hotel Group’s presence in Germany now extends to 103 hotels and almost 14,000 rooms under the Wyndham Grand (two properties), Wyndham (seven properties), Wyndham Garden (14 properties), TRYP by Wyndham (28 properties), Ramada (43 properties) and Days Inn (nine properties) brand flags.
Fifty of Wyndham Hotel Group’s properties in Germany opened in 2013 alone, elevating the country to the fourth largest of Wyndham Hotel Group’s 68 markets worldwide, following the U.S. (over 5,700 properties), China (over 650 properties) and Canada (approximately 500 properties).
“To virtually double the number of our hotels in the space of one year in an established market like Germany is unprecedented,” said Rui Barros, Wyndham Hotel Group’s senior vice president and managing director for Europe, Middle East, and Africa. “We are thrilled to be working with strong partners like Grand City Hotels to expand our offering and enable us to better serve the diverse travel needs of this market.”
The latest additions in Germany have included a Wyndham Grand hotel looking onto the Alps in the Bavarian spa town of Bad Reichenhall, along with centrally located hotels in key cities such as Frankfurt, Berlin, Cologne, and Duisburg.
In addition to growing its portfolio in Germany, Wyndham Hotel Group’s strategic partnership with Grand City Hotels, which was first announced in February 2013, also resulted in several other key developments in Europe, including the opening of the first Wyndham Grand hotel in Austria and the introduction of the TRYP by Wyndham brand to Belgium and the Netherlands. Wyndham Hotel Group also opened a new office in Berlin, with new roles created to bolster existing infrastructure in the areas of operations, revenue management, and marketing.
