Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchising company with approximately 9,000 hotels across nearly 95 countries, and CLC World Resorts & Hotels – one of Europe’s largest independent resort operators with a growing collection of properties – today announced plans to brand 12 properties in key leisure destinations in Spain, Canary Islands, Turkey, UK, and Austria.
Expected to open in November 2021, the properties will be converted into Wyndham Grand Residences, Wyndham Residences, Wyndham, Ramada Residences by Wyndham and Ramada Hotel & Suites by Wyndham, offering upper-upscale, upscale and midscale accommodation options for families and extended stay guests who seek to combine business and leisure.
The new additions will further expand Wyndham’s portfolio of over 300 hotels across Europe, adding more sought-after destinations including Turkey’s Aegean coast, Spain’s Costa del Sol, the beautiful island of Tenerife, secluded country estates in Scotland and England and the Austrian Alps.
Dimitris Manikis, President, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts EMEA said: “We are thrilled to add these outstanding resorts to our growing portfolio and continue to expand our destinations all across Europe. The continued trust of successful independent owners and operators highlights the success of our conversion strategy. We have a strong track-record for helping hospitality businesses benefit from the support and brand recognition that comes from joining the world’s largest hotel franchising company and are excited to begin our journey with CLC World Resorts & Hotels.
