Wyndham Garden enters Philippines with first hotel in Quezon City
Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchising company with approximately 9,200 properties worldwide, is bringing a fresh approach to hospitality in the Philippines with the launch of the country’s first Wyndham Garden hotel in Quezon City.
The new-construction Wyndham Garden Quezon City, located directly opposite the ABS-CBN communications and broadcasting center in the heart of Quezon City, Metro Manila, is expected to start welcoming guests in 2021. Upon opening, this modern 25-story hotel will feature 235 sleek and stylish rooms and suites, plus an extensive selection of upper-midscale amenities, naturally-lit meeting spaces and eco-friendly design.
The new-construction hotel is being developed by Wellworth Properties and Development Corporation, a real estate and property development company dedicated to building quality and well-designed developments. The hotel will be constructed by its parent company, H.S. POW Construction and Development Corporation which has more than 35 years of experience in the construction and engineering industry.
“Wyndham Garden is the perfect fit for the Philippines, where tourism is thriving. The country welcomed a record total of 7.1 million international visitors in 2018, up 7.7 percent year-over-year, so it’s important to introduce innovative international hospitality brands to the country’s key destinations. Wyndham Garden will be a breath of fresh air, with intuitive amenities that make every stay a breeze. We are delighted to be working with Wellworth Properties on this exceptional new project and we look forward to offering smart, stress-free stays to guests in Quezon City,” commented Joon Aun Ooi, president and managing director, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, South East Asia and Pacific Rim.
Wyndham Garden Quezon City joins an extensive collection of Wyndham hotels in the Philippines. A total of 21 properties are currently operating all across the archipelago, located in key destinations such as Manila, Makati City, Quezon City, Boracay, Cebu City, Davao and Puerto Princesa. Wyndham Garden becomes the company’s sixth brand in the country, following Ramada by Wyndham, Ramada Encore by Wyndham, Days Inn by Wyndham, TRYP by Wyndham and Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham.
“We are very excited to be working with Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, one of the world’s leading international hospitality companies, to introduce the vibrant Wyndham Garden concept to the Philippines. Together with our capable team in the Philippines, we look forward to tapping into their hospitality expertise to implement state-of-the-art amenities, international standards and eco-friendly practices in the hotel’s construction and operations,” said Harrison S. Pow, president & CEO, Wellworth Properties.
“We believe in building with a purpose and sincerely serving our customers better. For the design of the first Wyndham Garden hotel development in the Philippines, we kept both the business and leisure traveler in mind. We incorporated contemporary, purposeful and functional design to make the traveler’s stay relaxing, convenient and comfortable. We also plan to include natural materials, pops of green and abundant natural light in the development, as well as introduce technologies and systems to reduce waste and energy consumption,” said Harly Geraldine Pow, Business Development & Marketing Manager, Wellworth Properties.
