PARSIPPANY, NJ—Expanding its established presence of more than 1,400 hotels in China, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts recently marked its 100th Ramada by Wyndham location in the country with the opening of the 194-room Ramada Plaza Fuxian Lake.
Wyndham, which acquired the international rights to the Ramada flag in 2004 with just 14 hotels in China, has steadily grown the brand’s presence in key business and leisure travel markets there, including Shanghai, Beijing, Xiamen and Chongqing. Today, the brand’s footprint consists of more than 850 locations in more than 60 countries around the world.
“The increasing travel habits and spending among China’s burgeoning middle class—which is expected to grow to more than 500 million people by 2022—continues to drive the need for a range of quality, value-driven accommodations throughout the country, from urban to rural destinations,” said Bob Loewen, EVP/COO of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts.
Located in Yunnan Province’s Changjiang County, the newly constructed Ramada Plaza Fuxian Lake is situated within Southwest China’s mountain landscape close to the Lucong Scenic Area, Maotianshan Mountain National Geo-Park and Kunming International Airport.
Services and amenities at China’s newest Ramada include two eateries, daily free breakfast offering traditional Sichuan and Yunnan cuisine, a heated indoor pool, a fitness center and free WiFi. The hotel’s more than 8,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space comprises five meeting rooms accommodating up to 600 guests.
As of September, 30, 2018, Wyndham had more than 90 Ramada hotels in its pipeline in China.
