Ramada opened 14 hotels in Europe in 2016

Ramada Resort Dundalk

A full 14 new Ramada hotels joined Wyndham Hotel Group’s European portfolio last year, including the Ramada Resort Dundalk in Ireland and Ramada Plaza Konya in Turkey. 

Looking ahead, Ramada has four new hotels slated to open in Turkey, two new hotels in Russia and will launch the first Ramada in Georgia later this year. The first Ramada in Armenia will open in Yerevan in 2018. 

Some of the most recent additions to the Ramada portfolio in Europe include the Ramada Resort Erciyes in Turkey, which opened in early December at the Turkish ski resort of Erciyes, to the south of Kayseri. Also in Turkey, the Ramada Encore Gebze and the Ramada Iskenderun both opened on December 30.

In Russia, meanwhile, the Ramada Hotel & Suites Rostov-on-Don opened just before Christmas. 

These openings are significant in light of Wyndham Hotel Group's push to eliminate properties that don't meet brand standards. Wyndham tripled the number of properties cut from the system in 2015, for a total of 44,000 rooms. A full 92 percent of those, COO Bob Loewen said back in September, were “substandard.” 

These new hotels, therefore, could be seen as a way of compensating for the loss of so many rooms.
