BERLIN—Wyndham Hotel Group announced the signing of 17 hotels representing over 2,300 rooms across Germany and Austria in association with Grand City Hotels.
Adding to the agreement signed by the two companies in February this year to rebrand 43 hotels, the strategic alliance now extends to 60 hotels and over 7,500 rooms across four countries under the Wyndham Grand (seven properties), Wyndham (six), Wyndham Garden (17), TRYP by Wyndham (21) and Days Inn (nine) flags.
The latest signings include the first Wyndham Hotels and Resorts-branded property in Austria, a Wyndham Grand hotel in Salzburg, and 16 hotels throughout Germany, including five which opened in Hamburg, Berlin, Düsseldorf, Dortmund, and Cologne. The expansion takes the total number of Wyndham Hotel Group properties open in Germany to 89.
“We are thrilled to expand our offerings in Germany and Austria through our ongoing collaboration with Grand City Hotels,” said Rui Barros, Wyndham Hotel Group’s senior vice president and managing director for Europe, Middle East and Africa. “With 89 hotels across Germany under brands spanning upper-upscale to budget, we now offer travellers in the country unrivalled choice and diversity under one umbrella.”
“To launch our namesake Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand in Austria is also extremely exciting and marks the next logical step in growing the brand’s portfolio in Europe, following its successful introduction to Germany earlier this year,” added Barros.
