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 introduction of its upscale Wyndham® Hotels and Resorts brand to Turkey with the opening of the newly constructed, 210-room Wyndham Istanbul Kalamis Marina, located on the Asian coast of Istanbul.

The opening of the franchised hotel, owned by Reisler Deri Sanayi Ve Ticaret Limited Sirketi, adds to Wyndham Hotel Group’s presence in Turkey, joining 12 hotels currently open and operating under the globally renowned Ramada® brand. The company plans to welcome its second Wyndham® hotel in the country, the 306-room Wyndham Istanbul Petek, in summer 2013.

The five-star hotel features 210 rooms over five floors, including specially designed family suites, as well as fourteen multi-functional meeting rooms, including a ballroom which can accommodate up to 750 guests.

The fitness center boasts state-of-the art equipment and a separate gym and play area designed especially for children.

Additional hotel amenities and services include complimentary high-speed wireless internet access, 24-hour business center as well as indoor and outdoor pools. On-site dining outlets include five restaurants and cafés offering a variety of cuisines throughout the day and 24-hour room service.

The hotel’s prime location with picturesque views of the exclusive Kalamis Marina and Marmara Sea puts guests within close proximity to attractions like Beylerbeyi Palace, Camlica Hill and Maiden’s Tower, as well as Istanbul Ataturk Airport and Sabiha Gokcen Airport. The hotel is also in walking distance of Bagdat Street, one of the city’s most popular shopping streets.
