Wyndham Hotel Group has announced the groundbreaking of its first Super 8 hotel in Germany, the 160-room Super 8 Munich.
Developed by GS Star, the hotel is the first of ten Super 8 hotels to be developed in the country as part of a previously signed multi-year agreement between Tristar Hotel and Wyndham.
“As the largest US based economy hotel brand in the world with nearly 2,400 hotels across the US, Canada, China and Brazil, Super 8 has proven popularity among both hotel guests and developers alike,” said Rui Barros, Wyndham Hotel Group’s senior vice president and managing director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
“We are delighted to pass this significant milestone in launching the Super 8 brand in Germany and look forward to growing the brand’s presence right across Europe, the Middle East and Africa where we continue to see buoyant demand for more affordable hotel accommodation.”
Expected to open in autumn 2015, Super 8 Munich will be a six-storey, all-new construction hotel and the first in Europe to feature the brand’s newest design concept.
This innovative design includes a multi-functional lobby and guest rooms which meet the needs of modern travellers while enabling more economical construction and operation.
Upon opening, Super 8 will be the fifth of 15 Wyndham Hotel Group brands to have a presence in Germany.
Earlier this year, the company announced that its portfolio in the country had surpassed 100 hotels under four brands.
Through the upscale offerings of the Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand, the established mid-scale TRYP by Wyndham and Ramada hotels and the recently introduced economy brand Days Inn, Wyndham Hotel Group is able to offer a hotel solution in Germany to suit virtually every travel purpose and budget.
