Days Inn launches in Hamilton
Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world's largest hotel franchising company, has introduced its Days Inn by Wyndham brand to New Zealand.
The opening of a new landmark hotel, Days Hotel & Suites by Wyndham Hamilton bolsters the company's presence in New Zealand and in Hamilton, the region's fourth most-populous city and a key growth market.
Joon Aun Ooi, president and managing director, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, South East Asia and Pacific Rim, said "Days Inn by Wyndham is one of the world's most recognizable hotel brands. Welcoming Days Hotel & Suites by Wyndham Hamilton to this important North Island city, an area where the brand will compete up within the midscale hotel segment, marks a major milestone in our global expansion strategy."
He added, "Hamilton is an established destination for business, but there's a limited supply of world-class hotel brands in the Central Business District to support the city's commercial expansion and theatre development."
Days Hotel & Suites by Wyndham Hamilton is owned by the Giarn Family Trust. The former Sudima Hamilton Hotel has rebranded as a 69 guest room venue and is currently undergoing significant refurbishments to feature a new lobby bar, restaurant and reception area.
Across New Zealand, Wyndham now operates a total of 10 hotels and resorts in several key destinations, including Auckland, Queenstown, Wanaka, Christchurch, Rotorua and Taipa. Days Inn by Wyndham becomes the company's third distinct brand in the country, following Ramada by Wyndham and Wyndham Garden.
Since April 1, 2018, Wyndham has opened 34 total hotels in the South East Asia and Pacific Rim region, three of which carry the Days Inn flag. Globally, the brand has more than 1,700 hotels across 25 countries.
