Wyndham to expand in China's secondary cities

Wyndham Hotel Group is continuing its push to develop its upscale Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand beyond tier-one cities in China and into secondary markets, which have become key hubs for both business and leisure travel.

The development news comes on the heels of the recent openings of the 232-room Wyndham Grand Shenzhen and the 390-room Wyndham Chongqing Yuelai.

"The rapid growth of China's tourism industry has created a heightened demand for hotels and offers huge potential for us to expand the presence of our brands in stunning locations country-wide," said Leo Liu, Wyndham Hotel Group's president and managing director for China. "We expect significant growth for our upscale Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand in emerging markets, especially in rising regional economic hubs, leisure locations and nature resort locations. The signings of these three hotels perfectly matches the growing market demand and offers enormous potential for property owners."
