Wyndham Hotels and Resorts has published details of its recent new-build openings and signings across the US.
A total of 11 new-build properties opened in the country during the first quarter of this year, adding 1,000 rooms to the group’s portfolio.
New openings include hotels across its La Quinta by Wyndham, Wingate by Wyndham, Days Inn by Wyndham, and Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham brands, in locations including Miramar Beach, Houston, Spokane and Wisconsin Dells.
Over the same period Wyndham signed agreements for a further 25 new-build properties in the US, and the group also broke ground “on approximately ten new hotels” in the country.
Hotels currently under construction include a Microtel hotel in Hot Springs, a La Quinta hotel in San Antonio, an extended-stay Hawthorn Suites hotel in Oklahoma City, and a Trademark Collection by Wyndham hotel in Leavenworth.
The group said that “Though construction has generally slowed across the industry, Wyndham continues to welcome new projects while igniting its powerful conversion engine, which is fuelled by the strong value proposition across its portfolio of well-known brands”.
Data benchmarking, analytics and marketplace insights firm STR recently reported that the number of hotel rooms under construction across the US reached an all-time high last month.
Commenting on the news Krishna Paliwal, head of architecture, design and construction for Wyndham, said:
“Despite a rapidly changing landscape for hotel developers around the world, a number of our owners are pressing forward with new-construction projects in the economy and midscale segments, reinforcing our overall confidence in the long-term viability of our industry.
“New-construction growth, however gradual, represents our optimism for the future of travel. Not only do our highly recognizable brands provide significant value to hotel owners who join the Wyndham family, especially during difficult times, but they also represent the consistent, trusted and affordable experience travellers will be seeking now more than ever before.”
