PARSIPPANY, N.J.—Wyndham Hotel Group has raised the Trademark Hotel Collection flag at nine new U.S. properties, bringing the soft-brand’s portfolio to 70 hotels globally. The latest additions in New York City, California, Ohio, Utah, Louisiana, Nebraska, and Vermont more than double the brand’s U.S. portfolio to 15 hotels and more than 2,000 rooms.
Launched last year, the soft brand is a collection of upper-midscale-and-above hotels. The brand is geared to independent hoteliers with landmark three- and four-star hotels designed for everyday travelers seeking unique accommodations.
“Trademark offers entrepreneurial hoteliers a unique opportunity to tap into a hospitality mega-network without sacrificing their hotels’ distinct character and authenticity, which draws travelers through their doors,” Chip Ohlsson, executive vice president and chief development officer, North America, says. “The surge of owners joining the Trademark family is a testament to their desire to be part of something greater, as well as to Wyndham’s steadfast commitment and track record of delivering for its owners.”
