Wyndham Hotel Group has continued expansion of its portfolio in New Zealand after completing the fourstar Ramada Suites Auckland Federal Street, located in the heart of Auckland’s CBD, in October last year.

The 42-apartment, boutiquestyle hotel was developed by The Safari Group. The NZD$12 million development offers a mix of studio, one and two bedroom apartments.

The signing of the franchise agreement furthers Wyndham’s strategic efforts to grow the Ramada brand throughout the South Pacific. The company recently announced the addition of Ramada Suites Christchurch to its portfolio of three properties in the country, with locations in Paihia and Orewa. Barry Robinson, Wyndham’s president and managing director, said the new property will help fulfill the growing demand for new, quality-driven lodging in the area.

Throughout Southeast Asia and the Pacific Rim, Wyndham Hotel Group currently has more than 60 hotels open and operating under its Ramada, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, Days Inn, TRYP by Wyndham and Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham brands.
