Wyndham Hotel Group, the world’s largest hotel company with nearly 7,260 hotels and part of Wyndham Worldwide Corporation, announced the opening of the 230-key Wyndham San José Herradura Hotel & Conference Centre in San José, Costa Rica.

Remodeled lobby of the Herradura hotel that was for a brief time called the Ramada Herradura and is now the Wyndham Herradura.

The hotel that is known to Costa Ricans and foreigners who have lived here for some time as the Herradura, is now the Wyndham, after being the Ramada for a few years.

The Herradura is further evidence of Wynham Hotel Group’s steady, strategic growth in Latin America and the expansion of the upscale Wyndham® brand in the region, following the November debut of Wyndham Garden San José Escazú (next to the EPA store), the brand’s first hotel in Costa Rica.

The new property also joins sister hotel TRYP by Wyndham (known to one and all as the Coribicí) San José Sabana, which joined the company’s portfolio in November 2011. Earlier this year, Wyndham Hotel Group announced the addition of its 100th hotel in the region.

Wyndham San José Herradura Hotel & Conference Centre, is located just minutes away from Juan Santamaría International Airport.

“We’re thrilled to expand our company’s offerings in the heart of San José, a city that has grown to be an international business and travel hub,” said Daniel del Olmo, Wyndham Hotel Group’s managing director of Latin America. “With its convenient location, first-rate amenities and differentiating, customer-centric ‘Count On Me!’ service culture, Wyndham San José Herradura Hotel & Conference Centre makes for an incredible addition to the Wyndham family that will provide guests with all they need for productive and comfortable visits.”

All hotels are independently owned and operated excluding certain Wyndham, Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham and TRYP by Wyndham hotels, as well as certain international Ramada, Days Inn and Super 8 hotels, which may be managed by one of the affiliates of Wyndham Hotel Group.
