December 01, 2015 // Franchising.com // Tamuning, Guam – Strengthening its growing presence in the Pacific Rim, Wyndham Hotel Group introduced its upper-midscale Wyndham Garden® Hotels brand to the region today with the opening of a 144-key property in Guam.
The all-suites hotel, operated by Sentry Hospitality, LLC, is centrally located in Tamuning, Guam’s main tourism and business hub. Just five minutes from the Antonio B. Won Pat International Airport and two minutes from Ypao Beach, Wyndham Garden Guam puts guests within easy reach of the area’s dining, shopping, businesses and natural attractions. It becomes Wyndham Hotel Group’s second property in Guam, joining a Days Inn® hotel also in Tamuning.
“Known for its friendly people, beautiful landscape and fascinating history, Guam continues to gain traction as a prime destination for business and holiday travel, especially among Asian and American travellers,” said Barry Robinson, president and managing director, Wyndham Hotel Group South East Asia and Pacific Rim. “More than 1.3 million visitors have made their way to the country so far this year, and inbound travel is expected to rise. This growth, coupled with a lack of hotel supply, gives us a timely opportunity to introduce our vast portfolio of brands and provide visitors with quality, globally renowned accommodations, along with exceptional value, to serve their lodging needs.”
Wyndham Garden Guam features a business centre, meeting space, a fully equipped gym, and the Grill and Curry Restaurant & Bar, as well as on-site retail shops and the H20 Spa, which offers a full range of massage and body treatments.
The property, formerly known as The Aqua Suites Hotel, underwent a significant upgrade prior to joining the Wyndham Garden family which included the refurbishment of its pool and the construction of outdoor barbeque and fitness stations.
Mr Sunardi Li, president of Sentry Hospitality, LLC, which operates both the Wyndham Garden and Days Inn hotels in Tamuning, said, “We are proud to work with Wyndham Hotel Group once more to launch the Wyndham Garden brand in Guam at our beautiful property. We look forward to continuing a long and successful partnership.”
Wyndham Garden hotels, part of the global Wyndham Hotels and Resorts® brand, are located primarily in business, airport and suburban locations in North America, Latin America and Europe. Properties offer casual dining, flexible meeting space that can accommodate a wide range of functions, and inviting lobbies and lounges.
