Wyndham Hotel Group has announced plans to open the Middle East’s first Wyndham Garden hotel, the Wyndham Garden Doha, following the signing of a management agreement with Nasser Al Siddiqi.
The new-construction Wyndham Garden Doha will become the second Wyndham Hotels & Resorts property in Qatar following the opening of the Wyndham Grand Regency Doha in 2011.
The hotel is expected to open in 2017.
“Wyndham Garden Doha will be a strategic addition to our portfolio in the Middle East,” said Rui Barros, senior vice president and managing director, Europe, Middle East, Africa & Indian Ocean for Wyndham Hotel Group.
“With its bustling business district and nearby airport contributing to a significant increase in travellers, Doha is the ideal market for the region’s first Wyndham Garden hotel.
“The property will be a dependable alternative to the city’s luxury offerings that delivers the comfort and amenities expected from the Wyndham brand.”
The hotel will join several Wyndham Hotels and Resorts properties currently under development in the Middle East, including the Wyndham Dubai Marina and Wyndham Grand Manama, which are anticipated to open in 2015, and Wyndham Grand Riyadh, expected to open the following year.
As of March 31st, 2014, Wyndham Hotel Group’s diverse portfolio throughout the Middle East consists of 36 hotels and more than 6,250 rooms ranging from upper-upscale to economy.
Wyndham Garden Doha will be situated in the business district of downtown Doha, near tourist attractions such as Souq Waqif, Doha’s famous open air market, and the exquisite Museum of Islamic Art, Doha.
The four-star, 153-room hotel will offer flexible meeting space, as well as a fitness centre and pool facilities. Additional services and amenities include shuttle service to and from the nearby Doha International Airport, free parking and complimentary guest wi-fi.
