HONG KONG—Wyndham Hotel Group announced its continued expansion in China with the addition of eight new Ramada properties. Currently, the company has 543 hotels and 67,559 rooms in the country.
“Wyndham Hotel Group remains committed to continued, ambitious development within China,” said Robert Loewen, chief operating officer of Wyndham Hotel Group. “The lack of quality rooms in many second-tier and third-tier cities provides us with opportunities to further expand our presence. We are proud to announce these new additions which will help grow our footprint in the region.”
The eight new Ramada properties will be added over the next two years in the cities of Linyi, Liuzhou, Changzhou, Changsha, Suzhou, Wuyishan, and Xishuangbanna. These properties will join the brand’s existing 49 hotels.
Among the eight new Ramada hotels, the Ramada Suzhou Luzhi was the first to open in November 2012. The properties due to open in 2013 are: Ramada Changzhou; Ramada Linyi North; Ramada Plaza Liuzhou Liudong; and Ramada Plaza Xishuangbanna. In addition, Ramada Plaza Changsha West; Ramada Wuyishan; and Ramada Plaza Changsha Riverside will open in 2014. Together, these properties will add over 1,500 rooms to the Wyndham Hotel Group portfolio.
