Wyndham launches La Quinta brand in Dubai

Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchising company by number of properties with over 8,900 hotels across nearly 95 countries, today announced the debut of its La Quinta by Wyndham brand in the Middle East with a new 100-room property in Dubai. 
 
Expected to open in March 2021, La Quinta by Wyndham Dubai Bur Dubai will be centrally located in the historic Bur Dubai district.  
 
Wyndham continues to expand the La Quinta brand – a leading upper-midscale brand with nearly 940 hotels offering contemporary design, thoughtful amenities and friendly service – throughout the world. This hotel marks the 75th La Quinta property to open since Wyndham acquired the brand in 2018.  
 
La Quinta has now expanded to nine countries: Canada, Chile, Colombia, Honduras, Mexico, Turkey, New Zealand, the United Arab Emirates, and the United States. The brand has also announced plans to open eight new La Quinta hotels in the Dominican Republic.
 
The new Dubai property is located in one of the city’s bustling commercial hubs offering easy access to leisure attractions, including the Dubai Cruise Terminal at Port Rashid, The Dubai Mall, the Dubai Frame and Jumeirah Mosque, as well as business hotspots such as the Dubai World Trade Centre and the city’s financial district. 
 
The newly refurbished hotel will boast contemporary guestrooms and elegant interiors, combining Dubai’s traditional trading colours with a modern twist that replicates the city’s lively scene. 
 
La Quinta by Wyndham Dubai Bur Dubai will also offer a 100-sq-m event and meeting space and a host of additional amenities, including an outdoor pool with pool deck, a spacious spa with sauna and steam room, and a modern fitness centre. Other features will include all-day dining, a lounge, coffee shop, 24/7 room service, and speciality restaurants serving Indian delicacies and international menus. A 24-hour business centre, children’s play area and pool, dedicated retail space, ample parking, and a local shuttle add to the hotel’s positioning as ideal for business or leisure.
