The new property also joins sister hotel TRYP by Wyndham San José Sabana, which joined the company's portfolio in November 2011. Earlier this year, Wyndham Hotel Group announced the addition of its 100th hotel in the region.
Wyndham San Jose Herradura Hotel & Conference Center, located just minutes away from Juan Santamaría International Airport and downtown San José, offers complimentary high-speed wireless internet access, a variety of on-site dining options and the largest meeting and conference facilities in the country.
"We're thrilled to expand our company's offerings in the heart of San José, a city that has grown to be an international business and travel hub," said Daniel del Olmo, Wyndham Hotel Group's managing director of Latin America. "With its convenient location, first-rate amenities and differentiating, customer-centric 'Count On Me!' service culture, Wyndham San José Herradura Hotel & Conference Center makes for an incredible addition to the Wyndham family that will provide guests with all they need for productive and comfortable visits."
The hotel's 230 oversized guest rooms and suites feature contemporary furnishings, flat screen televisions, free high-speed internet access and views of the city. Guests staying on the hotel's Executive Level enjoy a private lounge and complimentary happy hour.
Wyndham San José Herradura Hotel & Conference Center offers free wireless high-speed internet access throughout meeting and public spaces, complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport and local businesses, a 24-hour business center and a state-of-the-art fitness center with a sauna and five Jacuzzi® whirlpool spas.
