Wyndham Garden Brand Debuts In New Zealand

Wyndham Garden Brand Debuts In New Zealand

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND (30 June, 2016) – Reinforcing its commitment to expanding its presence in New Zealand, Wyndham Hotel Group today announced the introduction of the upper-midscale Wyndham Garden brand to the country. New Zealand’s first Wyndham Garden hotel, scheduled to open in early 2018, will be an 86-room property in Auckland’s CBD and will offer a mix of studio rooms and one, two and three-bedroom apartments.

As the gateway to New Zealand, Auckland welcomes around 75 per cent of the country’s visitors each year. The city has also seen unprecedented growth with 1.05 million visitors in 2015, up 15 per cent on 2014. This, coupled with a strong demand for quality accommodation in the city, means the NZD$50 million Wyndham Garden Hobson Street Auckland will be well-placed to cater to the needs of travellers in the heart of the CBD. The hotel will provide excellent service, best-in-class amenities and technology, including high-speed internet access.

Enabling guests to travel at ease, the Wyndham Garden brand focuses on ‘the little details’ that make a stay memorable and promises peace of mind to guests when travelling for business or pleasure.

Owned by ABF Development Ltd, the new hotel will be ideally positioned within easy reach of the city’s two harbours, great dining and bars, excellent shopping and natural attractions like vineyards, beaches and native forests.

Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rim President and Managing Director, Barry Robinson, said Auckland is the ideal place for the Wyndham Garden brand to enter New Zealand.

“Wyndham Garden has been growing its footprint around the world, and we see Auckland as a key market for our continued growth in New Zealand thanks to its popularity as the gateway to the land of the long white cloud,” he said.

“Wyndham Garden’s New Zealand debut comes at a pivotal time for Wyndham Hotel Group as we transform our 16 iconic brands to meet the needs of today’s guest. The rise of an increasingly travel-curious population gives us the opportunity to leverage the scale and breadth of our portfolio to champion the everyday traveller by enabling their freedom to explore the world the way they want, with added value and quality experiences.”

Andy Chen, Director of ABF Development Ltd, said the hotel project would provide employment for more than 500 workers during construction and more than 50 staff once operational.

“This will be a major development for Auckland that will have wide-ranging benefits for the local economy,” Mr Chen said.

“The Wyndham Garden brand is synonymous with quality, and we are confident it will draw in the valuable tourist dollar, while ensuring employment opportunities for locals.”

The hotel’s facilities, including a gym, restaurant and flexible meeting spaces will be created with the finer details in mind, to make the travel experience for guests as easy as possible.

Throughout South East Asia and the Pacific Rim, Wyndham Hotel Group currently has close to 100 hotels operating under its Ramada, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts®, Wyndham Garden®, Days Inn®, TRYP by Wyndham® and Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham® brands.
