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 hotel’s proximity to the
Metro and many of Athens’ cultural points of interest will make it
suitable for business and leisure travellers alike.
Ruff, President and Managing Director EMEA, for Wyndham Hotel
Group, said, “Wyndham Grand hotels are located in some of the
world’s 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
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.”
