Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, which has a portfolio of 8,900 hotels across nearly 95 countries, is continuing to debut new properties and enter new destinations.
In the first quarter of 2021, Wyndham converted 52 independent and branded hotels to one of its 20 brands, accounting for over 70 percent of its global room additions.
The brand’s overall development pipeline has continued to expand both domestically and internationally with new conversion opportunities.
The company awarded 112 new franchise contracts in the first quarter of 2021, and by March 31 the development pipeline had grown sequentially from Q4 to approximately 1,400 hotels and approximately 187,000 rooms.
“Our portfolio of iconic hotel brands offers a wide range of experiences and price points for guests as well as strong opportunities for franchisees and developers,” said Geoffrey A. Ballotti, Wyndham’s president and CEO. “Our global sales, marketing and loyalty teams are looking forward to helping more travelers discover all these new hotels.”
