Wyndham Grand brand debuts in Middle East

DOHA Wyndham Hotel Group announces the debut of its Wyndham Grand brand in the Middle East with the 246-key Wyndham Grand Regency Doha.

Located in the Qatar capital’s Al Sadd area, the property currently operating as Grand Regency Hotel Doha will launch under the Wyndham Grand flag sometime this spring and will be managed by Wyndham Hotel Management Inc. The hotel is owned by Regency Group Holding.

Located 15 km from Doha International Airport, Wyndham Grand Regency Doha is proximate to Exhibition Centre and the Corniche waterfront promenade. The hotel’s Al Asmakh Royal Suite boasts a bedroom, living room, boardroom and two full bathrooms. The 600-sq.-m Al Qasr Ballroom can host up to 900 people.

The hotel offers three restaurants and café: Chopsticks, which serves Far Eastern fusion; Tangia, which offers a Moroccan menu; and Grand Gourmet, which features an international à la carte menu. Leisure facilities include an Angsana Spa, gym and a swimming pool.

“We are delighted to align with Wyndham Hotel Group and to join its distinguished collection of Wyndham Grand hotels to introduce the first ever Wyndham Grand property in the region,” says Regency President Ibrahim Al Asmakh. “The collaboration marks an exciting new beginning for the hotel which, through an ongoing commitment to the highest standards of quality and service, is certain to appeal to both business and leisure travelers alike.”

Wyndham considers Qatar—host of the 2022 FIFA World Cup—an important piece of its growth strategy in the region.
