Five Wyndham hotels are under construction in Manhattan, three of which are scheduled to open later this year.
The first Wyndham Garden hotel in New York will be a 124-room hotel on 24th Street in the Chelsea district, (middle right photo) to be followed by a 115-room hotel on Maiden Lane (bottom right map) in the financial district and a 228-room hotel on 36th Street in Midtown. A full-service, 280-room Wyndham hotel on 26th Street is scheduled to open next year and a 108-room hotel on Bowery Street in 2010.
Construction of the 400-room luxury Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Hotel and Spa at Bonnet Creek Resort, adjacent to Walt Disney World® at Lake Buena Vista, Fla., is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2010.
Other Wyndham hotels and resorts that are under construction include Cap Cana, (Green Village at Cap Cana, top left photo) Dominican Republic; Pirate's Bay, Turks and Caicos Islands; Isla Margarita, Venezuela; Shanghai and Xiamen, China; Centennial, Colo.; Tulsa South, Okla.; and Polanco, Mexico.
The all-new-construction Wingate by Wyndham brand soon will open its first property in Latin America, a 137-room hotel in Chihuahua, Mexico. There are another 20 Wingate properties currently under construction in the United States, from Las Vegas to Spokane, Wash.
“Despite the current economic environment, we’ve seen increased interest in developing our Wyndham and Wingate by Wyndham brands, thanks to a clearly defined strategic direction,” said Peter Strebel, (top right photo) Wyndham Hotels and Resorts president.
Wyndham Hotels and Resorts offers distinct upscale hotel and resort accommodations throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Latin America, Mexico and the Caribbean. All hotels are either franchised or managed by Wyndham Hotels and Resorts or an affiliate.
Wingate by Wyndham hotels cater to business travelers by offering the services and amenities they expect at no additional charge, including a hot breakfast with freshly made Belgian waffles, wired and wireless Internet service, copying and printing in 24-hour business centers, meeting space and exercise facilities and whirlpools.
