Wyndham Hotel Group is expanding in the Middle East with the signing of agreements for the Wyndham Riyadh hotel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia and the Ramada Encore Doha hotel in Doha, Qatar, both firsts in the Middle East for the company.

Earlier this month, Wyndham Hotel Group also signed an agreement for the development of the five-star, 700-room Ramada Plaza Makkah hotel, the brand’s third property in the Holy City, and it opened the Ramada Downtown Burj Dubai hotel which overlooks the Burj Boulevard within the Burj Residences neighborhood.

“The Middle East plays a significant role in Wyndham Hotel Group’s global growth strategy,” said Eric Danziger, Wyndham Hotel Group president and chief executive officer. “The signing of these three agreements as well as the opening of the Ramada Downtown Burj Dubai hotel are a testament to the strength, value and relevance of our brands both in the Middle East and around the world.”

The 210-room, 15-story upscale Wyndham hotel will be developed by Rayada Investment Company in Riyadh and will be part of the prestigious King Abdullah Financial District. It is expected to open during the third quarter of 2011.

The Wyndham Riyadh-King Abdullah Financial District property will feature the first Blue Harmony Spa and Fitness Experience in the Middle East as well as 11 meeting rooms, four restaurants, four lounges, an outdoor pool, beauty salon and business center.

The project will be constructed to energy-saving and environmental standards specified by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System, more commonly known as LEED.

The 110-room Doha hotel, which will be Wyndham Hotel Group’s first Ramada Encore hotel in the region, is expected to open in the second quarter of 2010. The contemporary, value-conscious property will be located on Ahmad Bin Mohamad Bin Thani Road in the Al-Asmakh area in Doha and is the company’s first managed Ramada Encore hotel.
