Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 5 June 2015

Wyndham Hotel Group has developped LEED certifiable, new construction prototypes for its two largest and most well-known brands, Days Inn and Super 8.

The company has refined its prototypical offerings over the last two years, so they now span a total of six brands, and provide U.S. owners and developers with complete, turn-key, design-forward solutions

The two prototypes are complemented by updated offerings for the companys Baymont Inn & Suites, Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham, Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham and Wingate by Wyndham brands.

All six LEED certifiable prototypes come at a time when Wyndham Hotel Group is seeing significant interest in new construction domestically. As of March 31, 2015, the company had signed agreements for more than 140 new construction hotels throughout the U.S. Of those, more than 30 have broken ground and are currently under development.

This is one of the strongest development environments that weve seen in the U.S. in the last decade and we want to be sure that all of our brands are well-positioned and that were making it easy for prospective developers to do business with us, said Geoff Ballotti, president and chief executive officer at Wyndham Hotel Group.

The refreshed prototypes provide owners and developers with turn-key solutions that include all architectural designs, documentation and FF&E packages. In addition, each of the six prototypes is LEED certifiable, providing the necessary flexibility for base or silver certification.

As a company thats been nationally recognized for its ongoing commitment to sustainability, providing complete solutions that not only cater to the evolving needs of guests but that enable LEED certification is of the utmost importance, said George Scammell, vice president of global design at Wyndham Worldwide. Whether its the bright, vibrant and comfortable design of Days Inn or the warm, accessible and affordable appeal of Super 8, weve tried to create offerings that are distinct, sustainable and meaningful.
