HÀ NỘI — Wyndham Hotel & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchising company, officially launched its first hotel in Việt Nam with the opening of Wyndham Garden Hanoi.
The upper-midscale hotel was developed by PPC An Thịnh Investment and Infrastructure Development JSC (PPCAT) and will operate under a management agreement with Wyndham Hotel & Resorts.
Located in one of Hà Nội’s fastest developing districts – Hà Đông, just 20 minutes from the city centre and 40 minutes from Nội Bài International Airport, the hotel has 112 rooms embracing natural materials and contemporary architecture.
“Wyndham Garden is one of our most exciting brands, and I am delighted to be able to introduce it to guests in Việt Nam,” said Joon Aun Ooi, president and managing director of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, South East Asia and Pacific Rim.
Việt Nam’s tourism industry is currently riding the crest of a wave, Ooi said, adding that the country welcomed a record 15.5 million international visitors in 2018, up 20 per cent year-on-year.
“With an array of attractions, excellent connectivity and tourism-friendly government policies, I’m confident that Việt Nam’s star will continue to rise in the future,” he said.
Wyndham Garden Hanoi is Wyndham’s second property in Việt Nam, following Wyndham Legend Halong. Wyndham is also collaborating with PPCAT on another hotel project, Wyndham Soleil Danang, which is scheduled to open later this year. — VNS
