ISTANBUL—Wyndham Hotels & Resorts is further strengthening its position in Türkiye reaching approximately 105 open and operating hotels and a development pipeline of approximately 20 additional properties. The latest openings are part of Wyndham’s expansion plan in Türkiye, where the company is the largest international hotel group by number of properties.
Wyndham celebrated its 100th hotel milestone with the addition of the 176-room new construction Days Hotel by Wyndham Istanbul Esenyurt, followed by the opening of Ramada by Wyndham Karapinar in Central Anatolia; Istanbul New Airport Hotel, Trademark Collection by Wyndham; and the Wyndham Afyonkarahisar Thermal & Spa, amongst other new hotels.
