Wyndham plans 20 new Ramada hotels in Canada

Ramada Canada

Wyndham Hotel Group is expanding its existing partnership with Canadian hotel chain Canalta Hotels, with a plan to build 20 Ramada hotels in Eastern Canada over the next 15 years.

The properties include locations in Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador and Prince Edward Island.

Wyndham and Canalta have been partners for 12 years, and have previously developed 39 hotels throughout Western Canada. The new Ramada developments will increase the chain's Canadian footprint by approximately 25 percent. The brand has roughly 800 hotels in the mid- and upper-midscale full-service category in 63 countries worldwide. Wyndham Hotel Group plans to have over 550 hotels in Canada over the next few years, and currently has 46 new hotels in various stages of development.
