Wyndham Grand, the upper-upscale brand of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, is slated to debut in six new destinations around the world in 2019: California; Cam Ranh, Vietnam; Mexico City, Mexico; Kayseri, Turkey; Tblisi, Georgia; and Crete, Greece.
Two of the new hotels—located in Cam Ranh, Vietnam and Mexico City—will be managed by Wyndham Hotels & Resorts’ growing management company, adding to the more than 400 hotels operated by the company globally and expanding its upscale managed capabilities into new countries. The new hotels will join the brand’s 39 existing awe-inspiring locations including Istanbul; Chicago; Shanghai; and Manama, where the first Wyndham Grand in Bahrain, also managed by Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, opened in 2017.
“Travelers are seeking out new destinations and crossing borders more than ever before; in the last two decades alone the number of international travelers around the world has more than doubled to nearly 1.3 billion,” said Bob Loewen, chief operating officer for Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “We’re strategically expanding Wyndham Grand’s presence around the world in the destinations travelers so eagerly want to explore, whether it’s the shores of Greek Isles, a unique pocket of culture in Southern California, the centuries-old historic capital of Georgia or wherever their bucket list takes them.”
In addition to the hotels planned for 2019, the brand’s pipeline comprises approximately 25 hotels including new destinations in St. Kitts and Nevis, Barbados, Belize, and a new dual-branded Wyndham Grand and TRYP by Wyndham hotel in Miami, Florida.
Slated to be part of multi-use development, Wyndham Grand in Westminster will be the brand’s first hotel in California. The hotel will offer 144 guestrooms—making it the largest and only full-service hotel in Westminster—in addition to flexible meeting and event space and a full-service restaurant. Steps away from Westminster’s Little Saigon Tourist Commercial District on Bolsa Avenue, the hotel empowers travelers to explore the hub of Vietnamese dining and culture in the largest Vietnamese community outside of Vietnam.
The hotel is also situated near the city of Garden Grove, California State Route 22 (Garden Grove Freeway) and just seven miles from Disneyland. It’s also a short drive from Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa, Newport Beach and the Pacific Ocean.
Wyndham Grand Cam Ranh, Vietnam
Wyndham Grand Cam Ranh is situated on a 27-hole golf course overlooking the nearby ocean designed by renowned Australian golfer Greg Norman. Cam Ranh is a growing tourist destination thanks to the recent expansion of Cam Ranh International Airport and increasing numbers of international flights.
Wyndham Grand Mexico City La Condesa, Mexico
The 400-room Wyndham Grand Mexico City La Condesa is the first Wyndham Grand in Mexico. The hotel is situated within the unique Roma-Condesa neighborhood boasting more than 1,500 buildings classified as architectural heritage—including the hotel itself, which will conserve the original architecture while applying contemporary interior design and modern amenities.
Wyndham Grand Kayseri, Turkey
Opened in mid-January, Wyndham Grand Kayseri boasts 205 guest rooms and eight meeting rooms, accommodating up to 1,185 people. The hotel is the fifth Wyndham Grand in Turkey and the first in Kayseri, a city with a strong commercial draw for business travelers and a popular ski destination.

Wyndham Grand Tbilisi will be located centrally on Freedom Square, adjacent to the National Museum of Georgia and close to a host of other attractions. Set across eight floors, the hotel has been designed by renowned Georgian architect Paata Jgarkava and will include 161 stylish guest rooms and suites.
Wyndham Grand Crete Mirabello Bay, Greece
Wyndham Grand Mirabello will offer 311 guestrooms, more than 6,000 square feet (520 square meters) of meeting space, five restaurants and bars and a variety of leisure facilities spread across two of the region’s most popular beaches for sunning, swimming and boating.
