LAKE BUENA VISTA, FLORIDA Wyndham Hotels and Resorts is resuming work on a 400-key hotel at its Bonnet Creek timeshare resort, a long-delayed project first announced in May 2006.
Wyndham Grand Orlando Resort Bonnet Creek is scheduled to open in October, more than two years after its original completion date, Orlando Sentinel reports. Bonnet Creek is located adjacent to Walt Disney World.
Work on the half-completed hotel slowed dramatically during the downturn, but Wyndham now believes the time is right to resume construction. The hotel will be owned and managed by Wyndham.
The timeshare portion of Bonnet Creek opened in 2004 under Marriott International management, before being rebranded by Wyndham. The unfinished hotel will be the second Wyndham-flagged property in the immediate Disney World vicinity, joining Wyndham Lake Buena Vista, which was known as Regal Sun Resort until last year.
