Wyndham Hotels & Resorts Grows La Quinta by Wyndham Brand Internationally

USA, Parsippany, New York. July 08, 2020

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world's largest hotel franchising company with 9,300 hotels across approximately 90 countries, today announced plans to further expand its La Quinta® by Wyndham brand with the addition of two new hotels in Turkey: the 86-room La Quinta by Wyndham Giresun and the 175-room, La Quinta by Wyndham Bodrum.

The new hotels join the previously announced 404-room La Quinta by Wyndham Istanbul Gunesli—the first La Quinta hotel to open outside of the Americas—and are the latest in a string of international signings and openings since Wyndham acquired the brand in May of 2018.

Earlier this year, Wyndham announced plans to open two new La Quinta hotels in New Zealand, marking the arrival of the brand in Asia Pacific; and just last year, announced plans to open eight new La Quinta hotels in the Dominican Republic, four of which are currently under development. They build on the brand's existing portfolio of 14 hotels throughout Latin America. Globally, the brand has opened 55 new hotels since its acquisition.

"When La Quinta joined the Wyndham Hotels & Resorts family, we saw strong potential to expand the brand internationally and we are delighted to see its continued growth in Europe and around the world," said Dimitris Manikis, president, EMEA, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. "These exciting properties on Turkey's charming coastline support our growth ambition and perfectly complement our other offerings in the market."

The new additions in Turkey—where Wyndham is the largest international hotel company with over 80 hotels—include two contemporary properties with central locations in the Black Sea coastal town of Giresun, as well as in Bodrum, one of Turkey's most popular and trendy seaside gateways. Details on the new hotels include:

La Quinta by Wyndham Giresun The 86-room La Quinta by Wyndham Giresun is a stylish waterfront hotel with stunning views of the Black Sea and a wide range of amenities making it an ideal destination for business and leisure trips. The hotel boasts an outdoor pool, a fitness center with Turkish bath and sauna, four on-site restaurants and even a library. The hotel, which opened last month, is located only 3km from the city center, with convenient access to the Ordu-Giresun Airport.La Quinta by Wyndham Bodrum With stunning views on the Bodrum Peninsula, the 175-room La Quinta by Wyndham Bodrum is a seaside hotel featuring stylish guest rooms, two on-site restaurants and a rooftop bar. The property, slated to open later this month, will include an outdoor pool, sauna and a fitness center to help guests keep active while traveling. Other facilities will include a business center as well as a versatile event space.

Hotel Group Meetings: Demand vs. Supply

It is a great time for hotel group meetings. It is expected that once again this sector will grow by 5-10% in 2020, partly due to the increasing value of in-person group meetings. Because people now spend so much time in front of their screens, face-to-face interactions have become a more treasured commodity in our modern world. Plus, the use of social media reinforces the value of engagement, discussion, conversation, and networking - all areas where group meetings shine. Despite this rosy outlook, there is a concern that demand for meetings far exceeds the supply of suitable venues and hotels. There are very few "big box" properties with 500-plus rooms and extensive conference facilities being built, and this shortage of inventory could pose a serious challenge for meeting planners. In addition to location concerns, the role of the meeting planner has also evolved significantly. Planners are no longer just meeting coordinators - they are de facto travel agents. Cultural interactions, local dining, experiential travel, and team-building activities are all now a part of their meeting mix. Plus, they have to cater to evolving tastes. Millennials are insisting on healthier venues and activities, and to meet their demands, hotels are making yoga breaks, fresh-pressed juices, plant-based diets, state-of-the-art gyms, and locally-sourced menus available. Millennials are also insisting that meeting venues practice Corporate Social Responsibility, which means upholding sustainable and ethical values; investment in the local community; health and well-being of employees; and general business practices that reflect being good citizens of the planet. Finally, there is a growing trend to merge meetings with other local events, such as music festivals, sporting events, and cultural attractions. The December Hotel Business Review will report on issues relevant to group meetings and will document what some hotels are doing to support this part of their operations.
