Wyndham Grand Mexico City and Esplendor by Wyndham La Condesa bet on MICE
Grupo Murano properties have had an important stand at IBTM Americas
Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has set up a booth at IBTM Americas to promote the upcoming opening of Wyndham Grand Mexico City and Esplendor by Wyndham La Condesa. To learn the details of this important undertaking, we interviewed Venezia Vazquez, Director of Sales & Marketing at Wyndham Grand Mexico City & Esplendor by Wyndham La Condesa. We share their responses below:
How has this ambitious project come about?
"We are very excited about the opening of these two new hotels in Mexico. To date, the owners –Grupo Murano– have invested more than 100 million dollars to renovate this historic complex that was created in the 60s. Now It is being remodeled respecting architecture and original art. The idea has been to bring the hotel chain's premium brand to Mexico City, it is worth clarifying that it is the first Wyndham Grand in all of Latin America and the Caribbean. A property that adds to the more than 60 hotels around the world. We will also open the Esplendor, a lifestyle banner that was born in Argentina as a boutique hotel and is now present in other countries. In Mexico it is the second hotel of its kind".
What aspects do you think will make this complex unique in its kind?
"In La Condesa or La Roma there used to be very small hotels with no more than 40 rooms and now we offer a complex of 408 full service rooms. So we can give an alternative to guests who usually stay in other areas such as Reforma or Polanco and had to move".
"The plan is to combine the two hotels, it will have the most comprehensive value offer in the area, since it will house 408 rooms and suites, two rooftops with panoramic views of the city, a variety of gastronomic offers and rooms for events for up to a thousand people We will also provide an extensive range of services such as a club lounge, coworking space, concierge, in room dining 24 hrs and pets program".
When is the opening scheduled and how do you describe your commitment to the MICE segment?
"The opening is scheduled for early 2022. We hope to position ourselves as the ideal option for the business traveler looking for easy access to corporate areas and the best meeting facilities".
