Wyndham Hotel Group Opens the 230-key Wyndham San José Herradura
Hotel & Conference Center
in San José, Costa Rica

PARSIPPANY, N.J. (December 17, 2012)
Wyndham Hotel Group, the world’s largest hotel company with nearly 7,260 hotels and part of Wyndham Worldwide Corporation (NYSE: WYN), today announced the opening of the 230-key Wyndham San José Herradura Hotel & Conference Center in San José, Costa Rica, the second Wyndham® Hotels and Resorts property to open in the country’s capital in the last month.

The addition is further evidence of Wyndham Hotel Group’s steady, strategic growth in Latin America and the expansion of the upscale Wyndham® brand in the region, following the November debut of Wyndham Garden San José Escazú, the brand’s first hotel in Costa Rica.

The new property also joins sister hotel TRYP by Wyndham San José Sabana, which joined the company’s portfolio in November 2011. Earlier this year, Wyndham Hotel Group announced the addition of its 100th hotel in the region.

Wyndham San José Herradura Hotel & Conference Center, located just minutes away from Juan Santamaría International Airport and downtown San José, offers complimentary high-speed wireless internet access, a variety of on-site dining options and the largest meeting and conference facilities in the country.

“We’re thrilled to expand our company’s offerings in the heart of San José, a city that has grown to be an international business and travel hub,” said Daniel del Olmo, Wyndham Hotel Group’s senior vice president and managing director of Latin America. “With its convenient location, first-rate amenities and differentiating, customer-centric ‘Count On Me!’ service culture, Wyndham San José Herradura Hotel & Conference Center makes for an incredible addition to the Wyndham family that will provide guests with all they need for productive and comfortable visits.”

The hotel’s 230 oversized guest rooms and suites feature contemporary furnishings, flat screen televisions, free high-speed internet access and views of the city. Guests staying on the hotel’s Executive Level enjoy a private lounge and complimentary happy hour.

Wyndham San José Herradura Hotel & Conference Center offers free wireless high-speed internet access throughout meeting and public spaces, complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport and local businesses, a 24-hour business center and a state-of-the-art fitness center with a sauna and five Jacuzzi® whirlpool spas.

Additional hotel offerings include a full-service spa, salon, gift shop, a daily complimentary breakfast buffet and three on-site restaurants, including the country’s first Hard Rock Café which is scheduled to open in early 2013. Guests can also enjoy the hotel’s three pools, Fiesta Casino and exclusive privileges at nearby Cariari Country Club and Golf Resort.

For meetings, events and conferences, the hotel offers more than 28,000 square feet of flexible space, the largest such event space in Costa Rica, which includes two expansive lobbies and a 12,800-square-foot ballroom that can accommodate up to 1,500 people. Conference services include top-of-the-line technology and multimedia equipment, on-site meeting professionals and catering.

Wyndham Hotels and Resorts, LLC, offers upscale hotel and resort accommodation throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central and South America, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East and China. All Wyndham® hotels are either franchised by the company or managed by Wyndham Hotel Management, Inc., one of its affiliates or through a joint-venture partner.
