Wyndham Signs First Hotel in Greece

The first Wyndham Hotel Group hotel in Greece will open in Athens city centre early next year.

 The Wyndham Grand Athens will be situated on Karaiskaki Place (2, Meg. Alexandrou St.), where Zeus International, a company that operates nine hotels across Eastern Europe, is transforming the building owned by VIOHALCO which formerly housed the Hotel Athens Imperial.

 When renovations are complete, the Wyndham Grand Athens will boast 273 rooms, 2,500 sqm of conference and event space, a restaurant, bar, spa and a 450 sqm roof garden and pool.

 The hotels proximity to the Metro and many of Athens cultural points of interest will make it suitable for business and leisure travellers alike.

Dan Ruff, President and Managing Director EMEA, for Wyndham Hotel Group, said, Wyndham Grand hotels are located in some of the worlds most sought after destinations, including Shanghai, Istanbul, Doha, Salzburg, Chicago, Orlando and now Athens. This is only our first stop in Greece, as we see opportunities for many of our brands across the country, from city centres such as Athens and Thessaloniki to resort destinations in the Greek islands and mainland.

Haris Siganos, Founder of Zeus International, added, We have been monitoring the Greek market for the right hospitality investment opportunity. We believe that Athens has been missing a flagship hotel offering a one-of-a-kind experience with a compelling local flavour, and we intend to change this when the Wyndham Grand Athens opens next year.
