Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has brought its Microtel brand to China with the opening of the 192-room Microtel by Wyndham Guiyang.

Located in the capital of Southwest China's Guizhou province, the new-build property is located in the International Finance Center in the city's Guanshanhu District. The property is reportedly the first “intelligent” hotel in the city, with in-room voice automation that lets guests control lights, temperature and entertainment (and get information) by speaking to a table-top device. The lobby has check-in/out kiosks and public spaces include a restaurant, two meeting facilities that can accommodate up to 100 event attendees, a gym and complimentary laundry.

Wyndham has a portfolio of more than 1,500 hotels across 11 brands in China, including recent additions under Wingate by Wyndham and Tryp by Wyndham, which entered the region in 2018 and 2017, respectively.

“Since 2015, Wyndham has successfully introduced four new brands to the China market,” said Leo Liu, president/managing director of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts in Greater China. “With inbound and domestic tourism in China rising year over year, this creates tremendous opportunity for brands like Microtel.”

Wyndham already has plans to expand Microtel's footprint across the region with two more Microtels scheduled to open later this year.
