Ramada expands in China
Wyndham Hotel Group opens the 156-room Ramada Nanjing and signs seven additional Ramada properties across the Chinese provinces of Jiangsu, Hubei, Shandong and Sichuan.
Opening through the end of 2017, the combined eight properties ? several of which fall under the brand?s growing Ramada Encore tier ? will increase the size of the Ramada portfolio in China by more than 10 percent.
Currently the brand has more than 60 hotels in China and more than 840 hotels across 50 countries worldwide, with a global development pipeline of 183 hotels.
Leo Liu, president and managing director of Wyndham Hotel Group, Greater China, says: ?With these newest properties, we?re strengthening the brand?s footprint in China and expanding its reach into what we believe to be key second-tier and third-tier cities.?
Complementing the opening of the Ramada Nanjing, a second hotel, the 245-room Ramada Plaza Chibi in Hubei, is expected to open later this year.
The six remaining properties are scheduled to open by 2017. They are the 150-room Ramada Encore Emeishan, the 200-room Ramada Encore Shanghai Hongqiao, the 200-room Ramada Dongying, the 243-room Ramada Guangzhou Conghua, the 300-room Ramada Suzhou and the 200-room Ramada Jining.
