Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchising company by number of properties, with over 8,900 hotels across nearly 95 countries, continues to cement its presence across Europe, the Middle East, Eurasia and Africa (EMEA) with a series of recent hotel launches and a strong lineup of openings for 2021.
During 2020, Wyndham signed 38 new hotels in the region and a host of important openings. It also launched multifaceted initiatives to support and empower hotel partners across EMEA, helping them rebuild demand in response to changes and ongoing travel restrictions.
Wyndham’s recent expansion in EMEA reinforces its commitment to its partners, guests and team members across the region and is set to continue with a strong development pipeline of over 16,000 rooms that includes more than 20 new hotels expected to open later this year.
Some of the upcoming openings in 2021 will include:
- The opening of the first Days Inn by Wyndham in the UAE in the second half of 2021, which will bring more economy accommodation options to travelers visiting the charming Deira district in Dubai, as well as the opening of Howard Johnson Plaza by Wyndham Dubai Deira and a new Wyndham Grand hotel in Doha, Qatar.
- The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia will also see the addition of Ramada by Wyndham Riyadh King Fahd Road, further cementing Wyndham’s presence in the market.
- There will be further momentum in Turkey, where Wyndham is the largest international hotel group with over 80 hotels and seven new properties expected to open in 2021, including the debut of the Days Inn by Wyndham brand with two openings in Istanbul.
- The debut of the Wyndham’s namesake brand in Cyprus with the highly anticipated opening of the upscale Wyndham Nicosia expected at the end of the year. The hotel will offer elegant accommodation in Nicosia’s main square, alongside several leisure amenities and conference space.
