Wyndham to Open Hotel in Ethiopia.

Wyndham to Open Hotel in Ethiopian Capital in First Half of 2015

By William Davison Sep 30, 2014 12:36 PM ET


Wyndham Hotel Group, the owner of the Days Inn and Ramada chains, will open its first hotel in Ethiopia in the first half of next year as it expands the business across the continent.
The unit of U.S.-based Wyndham Worldwide Corp. (WYN) signed a management agreement with local construction company ADM Business, part of Get-AS International, Bani Haddad, vice president for the Middle East and Africa, told reporters today Addis Ababa. The 136-room Ramada Addis is on the main road to Bole International Airport in Africa’s fastest-growing economy, he said.
International hoteliers are seeking to expand in African countries to exploit an increase in travel and higher economic growth rates than in the U.S. and Europe. Marriott International Inc. (MAR), the world’s second-largest publicly traded hotel chain, bought Cape Town-based Protea Hospitality Holdings for about $200 million in April. Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. (HOT), owner of the Sheraton and St Regis brands, said this month it plans to add as many as 20 hotels in Africa over the next four years.
Wyndham, based in Parsippany, New Jersey, has five African hotels across Ghana, Morocco, Tunisia and Nigeria. It’s working on two more in Kenya, two in Tanzania and one in Nigeria, as well as the Ethiopian project, Haddad said.

Wyndham Hotel Group Grows in Africa with First Hotel in Ethiopia



Quote:
ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (Sept. 30, 2014) – Wyndham Hotel Group, the world’s largest hotel company with approximately 7,540 hotels and part of Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: WYN), today announced the signing of a management agreement for the Hotel Group’s first property in Ethiopia, the 136-room Ramada Addis.

Upon opening in the first half of next year, Ramada Addis will offer 128 guest rooms and eight suites, ideally located on a major transport route linking the city centre with Addis Ababa Bole International Airport.

The addition of Ramada Addis expands Wyndham Hotel Group into its seventh market on the African continent and follows an announcement just last week that the company plans to introduce its flagship Wyndham Hotels and Resorts® brand to Kenya. With more than 940 rooms now in the pipeline across Africa, Wyndham Hotel Group is set to more than double its presence in the region over the next three years.

While the company was historically focused on franchise contracts within Africa, much of Wyndham Hotel Group’s recent growth has been fuelled by the company’s strategic decision to expand its management services into the region.

“Not only can we offer diverse branding solutions through our spectrum of hotel brands and strong onward distribution through our sheer global scale, we also offer owners the flexibility of either franchise or management contracts,” said Bani Haddad, Wyndham Hotel Group’s regional vice president for the Middle East and Africa. “This enables us to work with valued partners such as ADM Business Plc, who share our passion for providing great guest experiences and our vision to ensure the Ramada® brand continues to act as a benchmark for midscale hospitality in the region.”

Wyndham Hotel Group’s existing portfolio on the continent includes five hotels and 819 rooms operated via franchise agreements under the Ramada and Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham® brands across Ghana, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia. The group’s pipeline now comprises of two hotels in Kenya, one each under the Wyndham Hotels and Resorts and Ramada brand flags, two Ramada hotels in Tanzania and a further Ramada hotel in Nigeria, in addition to Ramada Addis in Ethiopia. Once these hotels open, the group’s African presence will span almost 2,000 rooms across three brands and seven countries.

“ADM Business Plc is proud to partner with Wyndham Hotel Group to introduce the fourth international hotel brand to one of the most vibrant and economically robust cities of Africa,” said Adugna Bekele, owner of the Ramada Addis. “We are deeply privileged to be part of the country’s ever-growing tourism industry and we believe this partnership will bring world class service to the capital. Once open, Ramada Addis will create job opportunities for over 250 people, serve Africa’s capital city to host its multitude of conference attendees and play a vital role in bringing foreign investment into the market.”

All of Wyndham Hotel Group’s properties in Africa participate in Wyndham Rewards®, the company’s free-to-join guest loyalty programme, which allows members to earn valuable points during their stay. Points may be redeemed for a wide variety of reward options including free hotel stays, air travel, gift cards for leading retailers and more. Information is available at www.wyndhamrewards.com.

That is exactly the problem. However, this being a Ramadan hotel, I expect nothing less than amazing.

I just read an article that the Ramada is due to be inaugurated in June. It would be nice to find a progress picture.
By the way thx for all the great updates. Have a safe trip.

If you are a glazing expert, perhaps you can help us with these ugly blue glass windows.

They just got to demolish the blue building infront of the hotel. I am actually surprised Ramada gave them the franchise.
