Wyndham Hotels & Resorts Grows La Quinta by Wyndham Brand Internationally

USA, Parsippany, New York. July 08, 2020

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world's largest hotel franchising company with 9,300 hotels across approximately 90 countries, today announced plans to further expand its La Quinta® by Wyndham brand with the addition of two new hotels in Turkey: the 86-room La Quinta by Wyndham Giresun and the 175-room, La Quinta by Wyndham Bodrum.

The new hotels join the previously announced 404-room La Quinta by Wyndham Istanbul Gunesli—the first La Quinta hotel to open outside of the Americas—and are the latest in a string of international signings and openings since Wyndham acquired the brand in May of 2018.

Earlier this year, Wyndham announced plans to open two new La Quinta hotels in New Zealand, marking the arrival of the brand in Asia Pacific; and just last year, announced plans to open eight new La Quinta hotels in the Dominican Republic, four of which are currently under development. They build on the brand's existing portfolio of 14 hotels throughout Latin America. Globally, the brand has opened 55 new hotels since its acquisition.

"When La Quinta joined the Wyndham Hotels & Resorts family, we saw strong potential to expand the brand internationally and we are delighted to see its continued growth in Europe and around the world," said Dimitris Manikis, president, EMEA, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. "These exciting properties on Turkey's charming coastline support our growth ambition and perfectly complement our other offerings in the market."

The new additions in Turkey—where Wyndham is the largest international hotel company with over 80 hotels—include two contemporary properties with central locations in the Black Sea coastal town of Giresun, as well as in Bodrum, one of Turkey's most popular and trendy seaside gateways. Details on the new hotels include:

La Quinta by Wyndham Giresun The 86-room La Quinta by Wyndham Giresun is a stylish waterfront hotel with stunning views of the Black Sea and a wide range of amenities making it an ideal destination for business and leisure trips. The hotel boasts an outdoor pool, a fitness center with Turkish bath and sauna, four on-site restaurants and even a library. The hotel, which opened last month, is located only 3km from the city center, with convenient access to the Ordu-Giresun Airport.La Quinta by Wyndham Bodrum With stunning views on the Bodrum Peninsula, the 175-room La Quinta by Wyndham Bodrum is a seaside hotel featuring stylish guest rooms, two on-site restaurants and a rooftop bar.

Hotel Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
