Wyndham Hotel Group Unites Hotel Brands

Twelve Wyndham Hotel Group brands – including Super 8, Days Inn and Ramada – are adding the “by Wyndham” suffix to their names.

The plan to unite its signature lodging brands under the Wyndham banner is one of the largest name changes in the industry’s history.

Brands adding the “by Wyndham” hallmark are Super 8, Days Inn, Howard Johnson, Travelodge, AmericInn, Baymont, Ramada, Ramada Encore, Dolce, Dazzler, Esplendor, and Trademark – representing 7,074 properties across the globe.

“As the leader in midscale and economy lodging, the Wyndham name has become synonymous with making hotel travel possible for all,” said Barry Goldstein, Wyndham’s executive vice president and chief marketing officer. “This new designation for our brands is a celebration of the accomplishments we’ve made in our mission to make travel possible for everyone, revolutionizing Wyndham Rewards and elevating our brands through a laser focus on quality, technology, and sales and marketing.”

Beginning 16 April 2018, the updated brand names and logos will appear across Wyndham’s digital placements from brand websites to mobile sites and third-party listings. The updates will progress around the world with an expected completion date of December 2022.

The “by Wyndham” cross-branding initiative represents a further evolution of the company and its brand portfolio leading up to its spin-off as a pure-play hotel franchising and hotel management company (Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, Inc.), which is scheduled to occur later this quarter. Wyndham’s Wingate, Microtel, Hawthorn Suites and TRYP brands already incorporate “by Wyndham”, and all twenty of the company’s hotel brands participate in its Wyndham Rewards loyalty program, which has more than 55 million members.

“In a world with thousands of hotel brands available, guests look to names they trust, like Wyndham, which they know means a quality experience and exceptional service,” said Lisa Checchio, senior vice president, Global Brands. “Putting that powerful name on the front door drives trial and builds tremendous awareness. Think of how many potential guests drive past our signs: 80% of the U.S. population is within a 10-mile radius of one of our hotels, and between our scale and our broad geographic reach, our signs generate more than 500 billion roadside impressions in the United States alone.”
