Opening in 2021, Wyndham Garden Quezon City will be the first Wyndham Garden hotel to enter the Philippines; it will become the sixth Wyndham Hotels & Resorts brand in the growing tourist destination.

Quezon City, Philippines - Wyndham Hotels and Resorts has announced the launch of the first Wyndham Garden hotel in the Philippines. 

The new-construction Wyndham Garden Quezon City, located directly opposite the ABS-CBN communications and broadcasting center in the heart of Quezon City, Metro Manila, is expected to start welcoming guests in 2021. 

According to Joon Aun Ooi, president and managing director, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, South East Asia and Pacific Rim, Wyndham Garden is the perfect fit for the Philippines, where tourism is thriving. 

He said the country welcomed a record total of 7.1 million international visitors in 2018, up 7.7 percent year-over-year, so it's important to introduce innovative international hospitality brands to the country's key destinations. 

“Wyndham Garden will be a breath of fresh air, with intuitive amenities that make every stay a breeze. We are delighted to be working with Wellworth Properties on this exceptional new project and we look forward to offering smart, stress-free stays to guests in Quezon City," Joon said. 

Upon opening, the 25-story Wyndham Garden Quezon City will feature 235 sleek and stylish rooms and suites, plus an extensive selection of upper-midscale amenities, naturally-lit meeting spaces and eco-friendly design.

The hotel joins an extensive collection of Wyndham hotels in the Philippines. A total of 21 properties are currently operating all across the archipelago, located in key destinations such as Manila, Makati City, Quezon City, Boracay, Cebu City, Davao and Puerto Princesa. 

Wyndham Garden becomes the company's sixth brand in the country, following Ramada by Wyndham, Ramada Encore by Wyndham, Days Inn by Wyndham, TRYP by Wyndham and Microtel Inn & Suites by Wyndham.

The new-construction Wyndham Garden Quezon City is being developed by Wellworth Properties and Development Corporation, a real estate and property development company dedicated to building quality and well-designed developments. 

The hotel will be constructed by its parent company, H.S. POW Construction and Development Corporation which has more than 35 years of experience in the construction and engineering industry.

Harrison S. Pow, president & CEO, Wellworth Properties, said: "We are very excited to be working with Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, one of the world's leading international hospitality companies, to introduce the vibrant Wyndham Garden concept to the Philippines." 

He added: “Together with our capable team in the Philippines, we look forward to tapping into their hospitality expertise to implement state-of-the-art amenities, international standards and eco-friendly practices in the hotel's construction and operations.”

Harly Geraldine Pow, Business Development & Marketing Manager, Wellworth Properties, said: "We believe in building with a purpose and sincerely serving our customers better. For the design of the first Wyndham Garden hotel development in the Philippines, we kept both the business and leisure traveler in mind. 

“We incorporated contemporary, purposeful and functional design to make the traveler's stay relaxing, convenient and comfortable. We also plan to include natural materials, pops of green and abundant natural light in the development, as well as introduce technologies and systems to reduce waste and energy consumption." 

The 235-room Wyndham Garden Quezon City will offer plenty of opportunities to recharge and refresh, with sleep-inducing beds, spa-inspired bathrooms with power showers, free Wi-Fi, working space and plenty of power points for electronic devices. 

The design of the hotel is intended to be bright and welcoming; splashes of green, plants and natural materials are used throughout the hotel, the hallways are lined with lights to maintain its light and airy feel, while wooden materials and carpets help noise reduction.

During the day, guests can enjoy soothing body treatments in the spa, work out in the well-equipped fitness center, or plunge into the elevated outdoor infinity pool, which also features a whirlpool tub and a pool bar.

The hotel's all-day dining restaurant will specialise in global comfort food, including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino and Western specialties, and a grab-and-go outlet will serve convenient snacks and refreshing drinks. After dark, the hotel's bar will provide a great space for guests to socialise with cool cocktails, mood lighting and smooth jazz music.

Situated conveniently near government buildings, media centres, corporate offices and retail establishments, Wyndham Garden Quezon City is expected to become a popular local venue for business functions and events. To cater for this sector, the hotel will offer a choice of naturally-lit meeting rooms, an events space and a spacious ballroom, providing options for all types of event.
