Wyndham Hotel Group
has expanded its portfolio of hotels in Latin America with the
addition of the 179-room Wyndham Guayaquil in Ecuador.
The newly constructed, full-service property in Guayaquil is the
fifth hotel to open under an agreement between Wyndham Hotel Group
and the hotel’s ownership group, Nobis, to develop and franchise
eight additional hotels in the country under Wyndham Hotel Group
flags over 10 years.
Located downtown on the waterfront, the new Wyndham hotel joins newly renovated sister property Howard
Johnson Hotel Guayaquil, one of four Howard Johnson hotels owned by Nobis and currently
operating in Ecuador.
Wyndham Guayaquil is located steps from the
historic Santa Ana Hill and just minutes from the sights and
attractions at Malecon 2000, Simon Bolivar Convention Center,
World Trade Center Guayaquil and Aeropueto Internacional Jose
Joaquin de Olmedo.
Each of the 179 guest rooms include amenities
like plush pillow top bedding, down pillows, mini-bar,
floor-to-ceiling windows, bathrobe, digital safe and 43-inch flat
screen satellite TV.
Guests upgrading to a Junior Suite will
also be able to enjoy an hot tub, while the Presidential Suite
boasts a kitchen, dining room and living room.
Guests of this Guayaquil hotel can stay fit at
the state-of-art-fitness center or relax with a swim in the heated
outdoor pool, which proffers glorious views of the city from the
9th floor terrace.
Free Wi-Fi Internet access throughout the
hotel ensures productivity, while a business center, free airport
shuttle service, 24-hour concierge service and same-day dry
cleaning service are convenient extras for business travelers.
The onsite Restuarante Santa Ana serves up
bountiful buffets for breakfast and lunch, and a selection of
local and international ŕ la carte dishes for dinner. The Numa Bar
is an ideal spot to relax with a cocktail.
This Guayaquil hotel offers four meeting rooms
to accommodate from 15 to 30 people, as well as a ballroom for up
to 500 people.
“The launch of our flagship brand in an emerging market like
Ecuador – and in one of the country’s busiest business and travel
centers – is very exciting for our company,” said Daniel del Olmo,
senior vice president and managing director of Latin America for
Wyndham Hotel Group. “Wyndham Guayaquil will give travelers the
chance to experience our customer-focused ‘Count On Me!’ service
culture and will also offer the reliable services and amenities
they need during their stay. We’re honored to work with a
respected partner like Nobis to help us provide travelers in the
region with great experiences and quality lodging options.”
The opening of Wyndham Guayaquil
bolsters Wyndham Hotel Group’s plans to expand its offerings to
travelers in Latin America and bring the Wyndham brand to key
markets throughout Central and South America. In December 2012,
the company added its first two Wyndham hotels in Costa Rica and
recently announced plans to welcome the first Wyndham properties
in Colombia and Nicaragua to the brand portfolio in 2014.
