Wyndham Hotel Group has said it will launch two new Wyndham Hotels & Resorts-branded properties in Turkey.
The properties will be operated through franchise agreements with Özdilek Otel Turizm İşletmeciliği Ve Ticaret, a company belonging to the Özdilek Holding group.
Opened this week, the five-star, 219-room Wyndham Izmir Özdilek is the first Wyndham hotel in the country to open outside of Istanbul.
With beautifully appointed public areas, thoughtfully detailed guestrooms and distinct dining options, the 20-storey hotel overlooks the tranquil Izmir Bay, within close proximity to the airport.
Simultaneously, Özdilek Otel Turizm İşletmeciliği Ve Ticaret has signed an agreement for the Wyndham Istanbul Levent, which is already under construction.
It will become the country’s fourth Wyndham when it opens its doors in 2014.
Both hotels will join the Wyndham Istanbul Kalamis Marina which opened last December and Wyndham Istanbul Petek which opened earlier this summer.
These agreements bolster the brand’s aggressive global expansion, following the openings of 12 hotels in Europe and the Middle East under the company’s namesake brand just this year.
In March, one Wyndham Grand, three Wyndham and seven Wyndham Garden hotels were opened through a strategic partnership with Grand City Hotels in Germany.
The company also announced the signing of the first Wyndham hotel in Dubai in May, adding to the brand’s development pipeline in cities including Manama, Riyadh, Frankfurt and Munich.
“Growing our flagship Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand is a key part of our strategy,” said Rui Barros, Wyndham Hotel Group’s senior vice president and managing director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
“It not only shares its name with our company, but also with our guest loyalty programme, Wyndham Rewards.
“Wyndham Izmir Özdilek is yet another exceptional opening and I look forward to working with our new partners, Özdilek Holding, to open our fourth Wyndham hotel in Turkey next year.”
