Wyndham inks new China deal

Ramada Worldwide is expanding its portfolio of hotels in China with the addition of the 173-room Ramada Changzhou upscale hotel in Changzhou, China.

The property, being developed by Changxing Group, which signed a 20-year franchise agreement with Ramada Worldwide, is scheduled to open in December this year.

The Ramada Changzhou hotel will feature a full service restaurant, bar, lobby lounge, fitness center, swimming pool, spa, business center and 325 square meters of meeting space.

Located near the 3000-year-old ancient city of Yancheng, the property is situated on the southern bank of the Yangtze River, just northwest of Shanghai. Changzhou is a part of the Jiangsu province and serves as a key center for China’s textile and food processing industries.

“Wyndham Hotel Group continues to build a strong and diverse global portfolio by working with solid in-market players such as the Changxing Group,” said Tom Monahan, executive vice president of international development for Wyndham Hotel Group International. “The addition of the Ramada Changzhou hotel is indicative of the brand’s commitment to expanding in key markets.”
