PARSIPPANY, N.J.—Wyndham Hotel Group has rebranded eight hotels in major markets throughout the United States with the upscale Wyndham Hotels and Resorts name and has taken on management of the properties.
The reflagging and management services, provided by Wyndham Hotel Group’s management company, are a result of an agreement with FelCor Lodging Trust Incorporated, the owner of the eight hotels.
The properties, which will undergo extensive renovations, are located in Boston, Mass.; Charleston, S.C.; Houston, Texas; New Orleans, La.; Philadelphia, Pa.; Pittsburgh, Pa.; San Diego, Calif.; and Santa Monica, Calif. They will significantly add to the Wyndham brand’s existing footprint of 76 hotels and over 18,500 rooms in the United States.
“We are very proud to welcome these prime, center-city locations to our growing Wyndham Hotel Group family,” said Eric Danziger, Wyndham Hotel Group president and CEO. “An agreement like this with an esteemed partner like FelCor allows us to significantly expand both our managed hotel portfolio and the flagship Wyndham brand in top, strategic markets without considerable capital expenditures. We’re confident that the renovation, repositioning and management of these hotels will lead to increased revenues and successful, best-in-class lodging and service for guests – a win-win for all.”
The eight rebranded hotels, representing 2,523 rooms, will become: Wyndham Boston Beacon Hill; The Mills House Wyndham Grand Hotel; Wyndham Houston Medical Center; Wyndham New Orleans French Quarter; Wyndham Philadelphia Historic District; Wyndham Pittsburgh University Center; Wyndham San Diego Bayside; Wyndham Santa Monica at The Pier.
