Wyndham Debuts Trademark Collection in Atlanta With Opening of The Burgess Hotel

USA, Parsippany, New York. February 03, 2020

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world's largest hotel franchising company with over 9,200 hotels across more than 80 countries, is continuing the fast-paced growth trajectory of its Trademark Collection by Wyndham brand in the U.S. with the addition of its first hotel in Atlanta, The Burgess Hotel Trademark Collection by Wyndham. This major market location is one of five hotels across five states - including Georgia, Florida, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and California - to recently join the brand, further cementing Trademark Collection's position as one of the fastest-growing soft brands in the hotel industry.

Located in the heart of Atlanta's stylish Buckhead district, The Burgess Hotel recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation transforming the property into a sought-after boutique experience for travelers near the city's main attractions and businesses. Updated features include 102 guest rooms with custom furniture and original artwork; a relaxing outdoor pool and courtyard; more than 1,200 square feet of meeting and event space; an on-site restaurant, Fia, inspired by the Mediterranean coast; and the chic Mr. B Bar.

Trademark Collection's recent additions across the U.S. demonstrates Wyndham's strategic efforts to steadily expand the soft brand in key markets domestically in the last year, during which the brand saw a 118 percent growth in number of rooms year over year, as of September 30, 2019. Wyndham also added to the brand's international collection in 2019 - which saw an 18 percent growth year over year as of September 30, 2019 - welcoming its first Trademark Collection hotels in Mexico and Belize, and widening its existing presence in Canada.

"Notable additions like The Burgess Hotel in top destinations like Atlanta underscore the very essence of what we look for in a Trademark Collection hotel - unmatched character, charm, and individuality which draw in everyday travelers seeking authentic experiences," said Greg Giordano, brand leader for Trademark Collection at Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. "The brand's rapid development since its inception both here in the U.S. and abroad demonstrates its strong appeal as one of the most compelling soft-branded offerings for independent hoteliers. These landmark destinations are now backed by a leading hospitality name in Wyndham, as well as an ardent team keen on driving more travelers through hotel owners' doors."

Some of the newest locations to raise the Trademark Collection brand flag in the U.S. include:

- Magic Village Views, a contemporary gated villa community in Kissimmee, Fla., situated steps from Walt Disney World® parks and sister Trademark Collection location Magic Village Yards;

- Hotel Retlaw, a modern, luxurious throwback to the roaring 1920s in Fond du Lac, Wisc.;

- Cantilever Hotel, a newly constructed hotel in Ranier, Minn., with industrial influences and an on-site distillery;

- And the Bay Area's Pacifica Lighthouse Hotel, just steps from the shores of Pacifica, Calif.

With more than 100 hotels globally, Trademark Collection is a soft-branded, independently minded collection of upper-midscale and above properties, designed for everyday travelers seeking distinctive, attainable accommodations in sought-after destinations. Among just some of the notable hotels in the collection are The INFINITY Hotel & Conference Center in Munich, Germany, the HYPERION Hotel Basel in Basel, Switzerland, as well as notable American locations like the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Ky., Ravel Hotel in Long Island City, N.Y, and the Zermatt Utah Resort & Spa in Midway, Utah.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Creative Innovation

Being eco-friendly is no longer a fad. It is an urgent planetary need and hotels are actively doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint by implementing sustainable, green practices. In addition to the goodwill derived from doing the right thing, hotels are also realizing the benefits to their business. A large percentage of Millennials expect hotels to be eco-friendly and will only patronize those properties that are proudly conforming. Consequently, more hotels are realizing that sustainability is a key element in a successful branding strategy. In addition, going green can lead to a more profitable bottom line, as savings on electricity, water and cleaning materials can add up. Also, there are other advantages that come with being an eco-friendly business, such as government subsidies and tax and loan incentives. As a result, many hotels are finding innovative ways to integrate eco-friendly practices into their business. Geo-thermal energy systems, along with energy-from-waste systems, are being used to heat and cool the property. Passive solar panels, green roofs, natural lighting and natural ventilation strategies also assist in energy conservation. Low-flow water systems and plumbing fixtures make a contribution, as does eco-friendly hardwood flooring, and energy efficient televisions and appliances throughout the property. In addition, some hotels have implemented in-room recycling programs, and only provide all-natural, personal care items. One hotel has actually constructed a bee-keeping operation on their grounds. Not only is this good for the bees but the hotel also produces products from the operation which they sell. This kind of creative innovation also holds enormous appeal to guests. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
