Wyndham Hotel Group opened its newly constructed, 307-room Wyndham Istanbul Petek, the second upscale Wyndham Hotels and Resorts® property in Istanbul in just 6 months.
The opening of Wyndham Istanbul Petek adds to Wyndham Hotel Group’s growing presence in Turkey, becoming the 20th property in the country to fly a Wyndham Hotel Group brand flag. Currently, the company has properties open and operating under the Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, TRYP by Wyndham® and Ramada® brands. The first TRYP by Wyndham hotel opened in Istanbul in December 2012 and the latest addition to the Ramada brand in the country, the 395-room Ramada Resort Antalya Lara, opened its doors this week in the Turkish Riviera.
In addition to an established midscale and upscale presence, Wyndham Hotel Group announced plans to launch its Super 8® brand in Turkey through an exclusive development agreement with İlbak Turizm İşletmeleri Ve Yatirim A.Ş. A total of 20 Super 8 hotels are expected to open in the country over the next 10 years. With over 2,300 properties, the brand has more hotels than any other economy hotel chain in the world.
Located less than 10 kilometres from Istanbul’s Atatürk International Airport, accommodation at the five-star, 21-storey Wyndham Istanbul Petek includes 241 guest rooms and 27 suites, as well as 39 apartments designed for extended stays. The hotel also features extensive meeting space, including a 586-square-metre ballroom and 14 meeting rooms totalling over 1,970 square metres, as well as a large fitness suite and 500 parking spaces.
