Wyndham Hotel Group and Owner Reisler Deri Sanayi Ve Ticaret Limited Siketi to Open
Wyndham Istanbul Kalamis Marina, the Second Wyndham Property in Turkey



ISTANBUL (October 28, 2011) –
Wyndham Hotel Group, the world’s largest hotel company based on number of hotels and part of Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: WYN), today announced the signing of an agreement to open a second franchised Wyndham Hotels and Resorts® property in Turkey, the Wyndham Istanbul Kalamis Marina.

The hotel, owned by Reisler Deri Sanayi Ve Ticaret Limited Siketi, is due to open in autumn 2012.

The signing of the Wyndham Istanbul Kalamis Marina adds to Wyndham Hotel Group’s steady growth in the country, following last month’s announcement that Turkey’s first Wyndham® hotel, the Wyndham Petek Istanbul, is set to debut in 2012. Wyndham Hotel Group currently has seven hotels open and operating in the country under the globally renowned Ramada® brand.

“Turkey plays an important role in our plans to expand Wyndham Hotel Group’s portfolio in Europe and the Middle East and continue providing travellers with first-rate accommodations around the world,” said Eric Danziger, president and chief executive officer of Wyndham Hotel Group. “The opportunities in Istanbul make for an exciting time to introduce a second Wyndham hotel here. With its incredible location and five-star offerings, the addition of Wyndham Istanbul Kalamis Marina further demonstrates our commitment to work with respected partners to bring high-caliber products to key, vibrant markets.”

With stunning views of the Marmara Sea, this five-star property will be located directly across from the exclusive Kalamis Marina on the Asian side of Istanbul. The hotel will feature 211 rooms over five floors, one presidential suite and eight meeting rooms. A large spa and fitness centre will offer 12 treatment rooms, one indoor pool and one rooftop pool. Dining options will include three restaurants: one offering all-day dining and two speciality restaurants. A lobby bar and room service will also be available.

Wyndham Hotel Group, part of the Wyndham Worldwide family of companies, is the world’s largest hotel company with approximately 7,190 hotels and approximately 611,200 rooms in 65 countries under the hotel brands: Wyndham Hotels and Resorts®, Ramada®, Days Inn®, Super 8®, Wingate by Wyndham®, Baymont Inn & Suites®, Microtel Inns & Suites®, Hawthorn Suites® by Wyndham, TRYP by Wyndham™, Howard Johnson®, Travelodge® and Knights Inn®. In addition, the company has a license agreement to franchise the Planet Hollywood Hotels, Dream® and Night® brands and provide management services internationally.

All hotels are independently owned and operated excluding certain Wyndham and international Ramada hotels which are managed by Wyndham Hotel Management, Inc., one of its affiliates or through a joint-venture partner. Wyndham Hotel Group is based in Parsippany, N.J. Additional information is available at www.wyndhamworldwide.com.
