PARSIPPANY, N.J. — Wyndham Hotel Group has forged a new agreement with Canalta Hotels to develop 20 Ramada hotels over the next 15 years.
This agreement expands Wyndham’s existing relationship with Canalta and stands to grow the Ramada brand’s Canadian footprint by approximately 25 per cent.
“We have been working with the team at Canalta for more than a decade and together we’ve made Ramada a familiar place to stay for travellers in Western Canada,” says Chip Ohlsson, chief development officer for Wyndham Hotel Group. “Relationships like this one, with a company that believes in the power of this vibrant brand, are an incredibly valuable part of our continued growth.”
The 20 anticipated new hotels will be located throughout Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, and Prince Edward Island.
This news follows the recent announcement that Wyndham plans to develop 25 Wingate by Wyndham hotels over the next 25 years and 15 Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham hotels over the next 15 years in Canada.
The company is gearing up to surpass 550 hotels in the country, with a robust pipeline of 46 hotels (more than 4,000 rooms) in Canada for 2016.
