The first Ramada Encore by Wyndham of Colombia opens in February
Wyndham maintains its confidence in the South American country and begins the year with the opening of the Ramada Encore by Wyndham Bogotá Zona Franca
Wyndham Hotels & Resorts (WH&R) –the largest hotel company in the world, with more than 9,000 properties in 90 countries on six continents– maintains its confidence in Colombia and begins the year with the opening of the Ramada Encore by Wyndham Bogotá Zona Franca.
The new hotel was developed and is operated by oxoHotel (a company specialized in the conceptualization, development and operation of multi-brand and multi-segment accommodation) and is strategically located on Avenida Calle 13 # 108A - 85, a short distance from large logistics and industrial centers and commercial and El Dorado International Airport.
The architectural design of the Ramada Encore by Wyndham Bogotá Zona Franca was conceptualized to perfectly fit the style, practicality and functionality needs of modern business travelers.
"This is a vibrant hotel that was designed to create the feeling of being at home by proposing a sense of informality with three key characteristics: freshness, accessibility and color, so that guests and visitors can relax, refresh and connect." commented Carlos Quesada, general manager of the hotel.
The first characteristic element of "cooling off" is found in the bar. Its insular shape breaks the relationship between a traditional bar service and the surrounding space, becoming a multifunctional entity that creates different zones on its four sides.
The social spaces were designed to "connect" easily, not only because of their wireless connectivity throughout the property, but their communal furniture of shared tables, outlets and wiring to power devices and wireless charging pads, allows users to interact, share , connect and combine social activities and networks.
Even for single visitors, the hotel's varied furniture encourages integration between people and creates meeting spaces, since it allows easy conversations with other people and to take advantage of the area based on “relaxation” and socialization.
These concepts were also implemented in the architecture and design of the upper areas. The interior flow, from the corridors to the 87 rooms (72 Standard, 9 Twin and 5 Superior), are functional spaces that allow the guest to "cool off" in the bathroom area, "connect" from the mobile table and "relax" in bed. Additionally, the Ramada Encore by Wyndham Bogotá Zona Franca introduced a board with adjustable coat racks and several storage compartments that provide more flexibility and warmth.
"The Ramada Encore by Wyndham Bogotá Zona Franca comes to fill a void in an underserved area in terms of quality accommodation and reinforce our goal of bringing progress to the travel industry," said Juan Carlos Galindo, CEO of oxoHotel. "This opening fully coincides with our continuous search to build a country around the hotel industry, to deliver greater profitability to our investors and better experiences to guests."
For his part, Eduardo Cruz del Río, WH&R Vice President of Operations for Latin America and the Caribbean commented: "We are happy to open our first Ramada Encore by Wyndham in Colombia; this new property is perfect to complement the nine Wyndham hotels that already operate in the country, because we want to offer a variety of lodging options to travelers where they can find the same exceptional service that Wyndham provides around the world ”.
It should be noted that, for the peace of mind of its guests, all the company's hotels are part of the “Count on UsSM” or “Count on Us” initiative, with which health and hygiene standards were further raised as a result of the Covid-19.
The hotel also has the OxoHotel Safe Stay seal, under which totally reliable and biosecure services, spaces and experiences are offered.
