MUNICH, GERMANY—Wyndham Hotel Group broke ground on its first Super 8 hotel in Germany, the 160-room Super 8 Munich. Developed by GS Star GmbH, the hotel is the first of 10 Super 8 hotels to be developed in the country as part of a previously signed multi-year agreement between Tristar Hotel GmbH and Wyndham Hotel Group.
Rui Barros, Wyndham Hotel Group’s SVP and managing director for Europe, the Middle East and Africa, stated, “We are delighted to pass this significant milestone in launching the Super 8 brand in Germany and look forward to growing the brand’s presence right across Europe, the Middle East and Africa where we continue to see buoyant demand for more affordable hotel accommodation.”
Expected to open in autumn 2015, Super 8 Munich will be a six-story, all-new construction hotel and the first in Europe to feature the brand’s newest design concept. This design includes a multi-functional lobby and guestrooms. Upon opening, Super 8 will be the fifth of 15 Wyndham Hotel Group brands to have a presence in Germany.
