The Wyndham Hotel Group (approximately 7,380 hotels) announced the signing of an exclusive development agreement with İlbak Turizm İşletmeleri Ve Yatirim A.Ş. for 20 Super 8 hotels in Turkey over the next 10 years.
With over 2,300 properties throughout the U.S., Canada and China, the Hotel brand has more hotels than any other economy hotel chain in the world.
The development agreement for Super 8 is the second hotel deal the two groups have struck. In December last year, Fokus İnşaat Ve Turizm Sanayi Ve Ticaret A.Ş., a company from the same group as İlbak Turizm İşletmeleri Ve Yatirim A.Ş. opened the 309-room Ramada® Plaza Istanbul Tekstilkent, one of eight new Ramada openings in Turkey in 2012.
“We are delighted to strengthen our existing relationship with Wyndham Hotel Group through this significant project and work together to introduce the Super 8 brand to Turkey,” said Mustafa Ilbak, chairman of İlbak Turizm İşletmeleri Ve Yatirim A.Ş. “We firmly believe that there will be strong demand for the Super 8 product with its clean, contemporary design and affordable pricing – we are already evaluating potential sites for the first hotel which we anticipate will open in Istanbul in 2014.”
