The Wingate by Wyndham hotel brand, part of Wyndham Hotel Group, unveiled a new-construction prototype concept. The updated design for the new-construction brand creates an open lobby and lounge space that allows guests to stay connected. The design also reduces the costs for hotel owners to build and operate a new Wingate by Wyndham property on a more efficient footprint, offering approximately 10 percent in savings compared to the brand's previous prototype.
The open lobby offers guests a social environment with furniture in natural tones, as well as a slotted ceiling that lets in natural light. Integrated technology is found throughout the space, including multiple connectivity areas, four large flat-screen televisions and free high-speed wireless Internet access.
The communal breakfast area transforms to a bar, event space or additional seating throughout the day, allowing for greater flexibility and use of space.
The new prototype is designed with 99 guestrooms over four floors. Accommodations received a facelift, with higher ceilings and a redesigned, larger bathroom that includes modern finishes, a walk-in shower and illuminated vanity mirror.
The building's exterior stays true to Wingate by Wyndham's signature look, but now has cleaner lines and a more contemporary porte-cochère. Demonstrating the brand's on-going commitment to sustainability, the building has been designed to be LEED-certifiable and includes LED lighting, low-flow fixtures and optional outdoor parking areas specifically for car-charging stations.
Additional features include an on-site market offering convenience items, meeting and board rooms with interactive screens and a fully equipped fitness center. Hotel owners have the option of adding an outdoor pool and associated public space.
Existing Wingate by Wyndham properties will be able to implement the overall look and feel of the new design through similar color palettes, furniture offerings and other design elements.
