ISTANBUL—Wyndham Hotel Group has opened three new properties in Turkey with 30 hotels now open and operating in the country.

The latest properties to join Wyndham Hotel Group in Turkey include Wyndham Istanbul Old City, Ramada Usak and Ramada Resort Akbuk. Collectively, the hotels add 740 rooms to Wyndham Hotel Group’s existing 4,500–room count in the country. 

In Turkey, Wyndham Hotel Group has hotels under the Wyndham Hotels and Resorts (four hotels), TRYP by Wyndham (two hotels) and Ramada (24 hotels) brands.

“I’m thrilled to maintain our rapid expansion in Turkey, which is a strategic growth market for us,” said Rui Barros, Wyndham Hotel Group’s SVP and managing director, Europe, Middle East, Africa and Indian Ocean.  “We look forward to continuing meaningful relationships with both developers and consumers, who are more and more recognizing the value of our powerful global brands.”

Located in old town, Wyndham Istanbul Old City offers 265 guestrooms as well as three food and beverage outlets, an indoor swimming pool and spa complex.  Housed within an historic building, Wyndham Istanbul Old City is within walking distance of some of the city’s main sights.

In contrast, Ramada Usak and Ramada Resort Akbuk are both purpose-built, new-construction properties.  With 124 guestrooms and four meeting rooms, Ramada Usak is located within walking distance of the city centre and just four miles from Usak airport.  Ramada Resort Akbuk combines the convenience of a city centre location, with the facilities of a resort, offering 364 guestrooms and suites, swimming pool complex with water slides, spa, fitness area and access to a private beach.
