Wyndham Hotel Group has further expanded its presence in New Zealand by opening its second Auckland property – Ramada Suites Albany, Auckland North Shore. Albany’s first major accommodation development in more than six years, the 66-room Ramada Suites Albany offers stylish accommodation in Auckland’s North Shore region and reflects the tourism potential of New Zealand’s largest city outside its CBD.

The development is the fourth joint venture between Wyndham Hotel Group and local developer Safari Group, after the 42-room Ramada Suites Auckland, Federal Street and the 44-apartment Ramada Suites Christchurch City, both opened in 2015, and the 54-room Ramada Hotel and Suites Queenstown Remarkables Park, opened in 2016. “There is a thriving business and leisure market in Auckland’s North Shore region that needs to be serviced and Ramada Suites Albany is a great example of the potential major hospitality players are beginning to see in the city’s suburbs,” said franchisee, Sajad Bassam, managing director of Crown Group Ltd. Globally, Ramada offers more than 860 properties across 63 countries.
