The world’s largest hotel company, Wyndham Hotel Group, with approximately 7,410 hotels, has announced the opening of the full-service Wyndham Cusco Saqsayhuaman in Cusco, the Andina news agency reports.
The new hotel is the first Wyndham Hotels and Resorts upscale property in Peru.
With 79 rooms it is now the second full-service Wyndham property in South America and the fifth Wyndham Hotel Group property in Peru, following the expansion of the Ramada brand in the country last year to four hotels.
Cuzco II Ventures LTD S.A.C owns the new property. This is the company’s second hotel in the city after opening the Costa Del Sol Ramada Cusco.
The city of Cusco is one of the country’s most significant tourist destinations because it was once the capital of the Inca Empire and one of the most prominent gateways to Machu Picchu.
“We are proud to introduce the Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand to Peru with the opening of the Wyndham Cusco Saqsayhuaman in one of the country’s most popular and historic cities,” said Daniel del Olmo, senior vice president and managing director of Latin America for Wyndham Hotel Group.
“The expansion of our diverse portfolio of hotels is a priority for Wyndham Hotel Group as the region continues to experience economic growth and a robust landscape for development, especially in the burgeoning country of Peru.”
