Days Inn® by Wyndham Debuts in New Zealand With Opening of Days Hotel & Suites by Wyndham Hamilton

New Zealand, Hamilton. July 03, 2019

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world's largest hotel franchising company, has introduced its globally-recognized Days Inn by Wyndham brand to New Zealand with the opening of a new landmark hotel, Days Hotel & Suites by Wyndham Hamilton.

The addition bolsters the Company's presence in New Zealand and in Hamilton, the region's fourth most-populous city and a key growth market. Since April 1, 2018, Wyndham has opened 34 total hotels in the South East Asia and Pacific Rim region, three of which carry the Days Inn flag. Globally, the brand has more than 1,700 hotels across 25 countries.

A modern hotel set in a historic 19th-century building on the corner of Hamilton's Collingwood and Victoria streets, the Days Hotel & Suites by Wyndham Hamilton is owned by the Giarn Family Trust and is currently undergoing significant refurbishments to feature a new lobby bar, restaurant and reception area.

"Days Inn by Wyndham is one of the world's most recognizable hotel brands bringing warm, inviting and reliable hospitality to everyday travellers across the globe," said Joon Aun Ooi, president and managing director, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, South East Asia and Pacific Rim. "Welcoming Days Hotel & Suites by Wyndham Hamilton to this important North Island city, an area where the brand will compete up within the midscale hotel segment, marks a major milestone in our global expansion strategy.

He added, "Hamilton is an established destination for business, but there's a limited supply of world-class hotel brands in the Central Business District to support the city's commercial expansion and theatre development. The Giarn Family Trust is an excellent partner and we look forward to elevating Hamilton's lodging offerings with this latest addition."

Formerly known as the Sudima Hamilton Hotel, a building dating back to 1876, the now Days Hotel & Suites by Wyndham Hamilton offers 69 guest rooms and suites featuring a full range of amenities, including complimentary Wi-Fi, self-controlled air conditioning and heating, flat screen televisions, and environmentally-friendly bathroom amenities. In addition, the studios and two-bedroom suites are fitted with furnished balconies, allowing guests to soak up the sights and sounds of bustling Victoria Street. The hotel also features private meeting facilities, a lounge, guest laundry facilities and onsite parking.

With its prime downtown location, guests are steps from the Waikato Museum and SKYCITY Hamilton, while Claudelands Park and the city's conference centre are within a short driving distance. Visitors can also enjoy scenic strolls through the Hamilton Gardens, catch a cricket match at Seddon Park, watch rugby at FMG Stadium Waikato, take in a show at The Meteor Theatre or visit the animals at Hamilton Zoo.

Days Inn by Wyndham is helping guests seize the days, wherever their travels take them. In addition to the Days Inn by Wyndham name, the brand also franchises under the names Days Hotel by Wyndham and Days Hotel & Suites by Wyndham, among others. Across New Zealand, Wyndham now operates a total of ten hotels and resorts in several key destinations, including Auckland, Queenstown, Wanaka, Christchurch, Rotorua and Taipa. Days Inn by Wyndham becomes the company's third distinct brand in the country, following Ramada® by Wyndham and Wyndham Garden®.

Days Inn by Wyndham hotels participate in Wyndham Rewards®, the world's most generous rewards program with more than 30,000 hotels, vacation club resorts and vacation rentals worldwide. Designed for the everyday traveller, members earn a guaranteed 1,000 points with every qualified stay and may redeem points for a wide-range of rewards, including free nights, gift cards, merchandise and more.

Food & Beverage: Millennial Chefs Lead the Way

Led by Millennial chefs, hotels continue to foster sustainability, sourcing and wellness within their dining rooms and banquet spaces, and by all measures, this is responsible for an increase in their revenues. In many hotels, the food & beverage division contributes 50 per cent or more to hotel sales and they are currently experiencing double-digit growth. As a result, hotel owners are allocating an increasing amount of square footage for F&B operations. The biggest area of investment is in catering, which is thriving due to weddings, social events and business conferences. Hotels are also investing in on-site market or convenience stores that offer fresh/refrigerated foods, and buffet concepts also continue to expand. Other popular food trends include a rise of fermented offerings such as kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, kefir and pickles - all to produce the least processed food possible, and to boost probiotics to improve the immune system. Tea is also enjoying something of a renaissance. More people are thinking of tea with the same reverence as coffee due to its many varieties, applications and benefits. Craft tea blending, nitro tea on tap and even tea cocktails are beginning to appear on some hotel menus. Another trend concerns creating a unique, individualized and memorable experience for guests. This could be a small consumable item that is specific to a property or event, such as house-made snack mixes, gourmet popcorn, macaroons, or jars of house-made jams, chutneys, and mustards -all produced and customized in house. One staple that is in decline is the in-room minibar which seems to have fallen out of favor. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
