LONDON – (July 6, 2021) – Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the world’s largest hotel franchising company with over 8,900 hotels across nearly 95 countries, today announced the opening of H2 Hotel Budapest, Trademark Collection by Wyndham, the latest addition in Wyndham’s strong portfolio of Trademark properties across Europe and its first property under the Trademark Collection brand in Hungary.
Located on the eastern side of the Danube River, minutes from the iconic Széchenyi Chain Bridge and within walking distance of many iconic attractions, the 157-rooom H2 Hotel Budapest is the ideal gateway for travelers looking to explore the rich history and culture of Hungary’s capital city.
The new hotel builds on the Company’s longstanding relationship with H-Hotels.com, a leading hotel operator headquartered in Germany that manages 50 Trademark Collection hotels across key European destinations. H2 Hotel Budapest, Trademark Collection by Wyndham marks the hospitality group’s first hotel outside of Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Launched in 2017, Trademark Collection by Wyndham is a fast-growing brand, designed and perfectly suited for hoteliers who seek independence on their terms and take pride in their unique spirit, while leveraging the competitive advantages that come with the scale of a global partner such as Wyndham. The H2 Hotel Budapest adds to Trademark Collection’s international growth trajectory over the past four years, bringing its footprint to 115 hotels in countries such as Australia, Austria, Canada, Curacao, Germany, Mexico, Sint Maarten, Switzerland, and the United States. Earlier this year, the brand also launched a first-in-market property in Belgium and a new private island beach resort in Belize. It is set to continue its global growth with additional openings in Germany and Belize.
Christian Michel, Vice President for Development in Europe, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts said: “The Trademark Collection by Wyndham brand has been instrumental in our overall growth strategy in Europe and around the world. We are thrilled to be expanding the brand into such an exciting destination like Hungary while simultaneously supporting our overall conversion strategy. Our relationship with H-Hotels.com has been key in the development of our Trademark by Wyndham Collection across Europe and we look forward to continuing our fruitful collaboration to bring the brand to even more travelers.”
Alexander Fitz, CEO, H-Hotels.com added: “Budapest is a world-renowned European city with beautiful architecture and historical sites, and we are thrilled to have our first H-Hotel outside of Germany, Austria and Switzerland in this metropolitan capital. The new opening marks an exciting step for H-Hotels.com in partnership with Wyndham Hotels & Resorts as we continue to expand our offerings across Europe under the Trademark Collection by Wyndham brand. We look forward to continuing this momentum with two Trademark Collection by Wyndham openings in Dusseldorf slated to open in the second half of this year.”
