Wyndham Hotel Group opened the newly constructed, 307-room Wyndham Istanbul Petek, the second upscale Wyndham Hotels and Resorts property to open in Turkey in six 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 earlier 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 Ilbak Turizm Isletmeleri Ve Yatirim A.S. 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.
Accommodation at the five-star, 21-story Wyndham Istanbul Petek includes 241 guestrooms and 27 suites, as well as 39 apartments designed for extended stays. The hotel also features extensive meeting space, including a ballroom and 14 meeting rooms totaling over 21,205 square feet, as well as a fitness suite and more than 500 parking spaces.
Dining options at the hotel range from a lobby bar to all-day dining and specialty restaurants, all with 24-hour room service. Guests can also access the hotel's 1,399 square foot swimming pool and spa area with four treatment rooms.
Owned and developed by Kilicbey Turizm Isletmeleri Insaat Sanayi ve Ticaret Anonim Sirketi, the development of the property was with design input from Metex Design.
