Wingate by Wyndham Adds Readapted Los Angeles Hotel to Portfolio
July 25, 2011 // Franchising.com // PARSIPPANY, N.J. — Wingate by Wyndham®, a hotel brand owned by Wyndham Hotel Group, LLC which is a subsidiary of Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: WYN), today announced the addition of the 148-room Wingate by Wyndham Los Angeles International Airport in southern California..
The readapted hotel, a former Hampton Inn, was completely renovated and opened its doors under the Wingate by Wyndham growth strategy, which aims to help expand the midscale hotel chain in key markets throughout North America.
Bill Hall, Wingate by Wyndham brand senior vice president, said growth through readaptation involves taking an existing structure in a market that cannot easily accommodate new construction and incorporating the critical elements that define a Wingate by Wyndham hotel.
"This strategic approach is designed to complement the brand's new-construction development efforts, enabling new growth without departing from its core values of delivering product consistency and quality guest experiences," he said. "Readaptation allows us to take a hotel in a market with high barriers to entry and fit it to the Wingate by Wyndham brand's exacting, unique standards."
Owned by Washington-based LAX Hotel Investment Company, LLC, the Wingate by Wyndham Los Angeles International Airport is two miles east of Los Angeles International Airport, offering travelers convenient lodging near one of the country's busiest travel hubs.
"We are proud to welcome the Wingate by Wyndham Los Angeles International Airport to our brand family," Hall said. "We are confident it will deliver the Wingate brand promise by providing business and leisure travelers visiting southern California with top-notch services, amenities and comfort they need at an all-inclusive rate."
