Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchising company with over 8,900 hotels across nearly 95 countries, unveiled its 21st brand, Registry Collection HotelsSM, adding a luxury offering to the Company’s growing brand portfolio while further advancing its mission to make hotel travel possible for all.
The launch of Registry Collection Hotels comes at a time when a growing number of independent luxury hotel owners are seeking proven and established partners to help them recover from the challenges of the global pandemic. Registry Collection Hotels allows these owners to maintain their independent spirit and brand individuality while tapping into the global scale of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts along with its award-winning Wyndham Rewards® loyalty program.
“As the hospitality industry continues to rebound, independent luxury hotel owners around the world have approached our development teams seeking sales, marketing and reservations support under a proven and established luxury brand,” said Geoff Ballotti, president and CEO, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “The creation of Registry Collection Hotels was a natural fit, given Registry’s growing global recognition as the world’s largest luxury exchange program with over 200 high-end luxury fractional resorts and the continued successful management of that program by our partner Travel + Leisure Co. (formerly Wyndham Destinations). Registry Collection Hotels now fill an important space at the upper end of the Wyndham Hotels & Resorts portfolio, allowing us to very selectively provide support to independent hoteliers around the globe who meet the highest standards of luxury service and accommodations.”
Handpicked to deliver incredible experiences in spectacular destinations, the hallmark of Registry Collection Hotels is the allure of their unmistakable individuality, elevated by thoughtful design and world-class service. From brilliant architectural details paired with serene backdrops to dreamworthy locations, every stay with Registry Collection Hotels is as unique and indulgent as the hotels themselves.
“We are truly excited about the renewed potential of the global travel, leisure and lifestyle industry, as the world rejoices and reunites after more than a year of lockdowns and restrictions,” said Michael Brown, CEO, Travel + Leisure Co. “Experts and travelers are looking forward to exploring again for curated and exclusive experiences around the world. Launch of Registry Collection Hotels is a natural evolution for Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, building on the brand’s iconic heritage and global network. As Travel + Leisure Co., the world’s leading membership and leisure travel company, with nearly 20 travel brands – including The Registry Collection – we are looking forward to designing a new future for the global leisure industry.”
