WYN achieves 200% growth in India
Wyndham Worldwide (WYN) has expanded its presence in India with 10 new hotel properties joining the Wyndham Hotel Group and three new vacation ownership resorts joining the RCI vacation exchange network.
The group has approximately 7,700 hotels worldwide, while operating 25 hotels in the region with another 28 in the pipeline representing more than 3,300 rooms.
According to Stephen P. Holmes, chair and CEO of WYN, India is becoming one of the fastest growing travel markets in the world.
It has been the fastest growing hotel franchisor in India, experiencing nearly 200% growth in India over the past five years.
The announcement of 10 new deal signings includes two conversions under the company’s iconic Howard Johnson and Ramada Plaza brands with the Unique Mercantile Group and also signifies expansion for the first time beyond India under the Ramada and Days Inn brands with Intraco Limited based out of Bangladesh.
Holmes said: “Our global portfolio encompasses virtually every type of travel accommodation — from hotels to timeshare to vacation rentals and more — making Wyndham Worldwide uniquely positioned to deliver great results for our hospitality partners and great travel experiences for guests.”
Last week Wyndham Hotel Group was also the first hospitality company to reach the 1,000 hotel mark in Greater China.
