First Newly Constructed Wingate by Wyndham Hotel Opens in Nevada

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - January 7, 2008) - Wyndham Hotel Group today announced the grand opening of the first newly constructed Wingate by Wyndham hotel, a 99-room property in Henderson, Nev.

The hotel is the first to be built since the Wingate brand affiliated with the Wyndham® Hotels and Resorts brand last May, a move designed to leverage marketing, sales and training and reach an expanded consumer base.

To formalize the relationship, the Wingate brand was renamed Wingate® by Wyndham and a redesigned brand logo was introduced.

"We celebrate the opening of the Wingate by Wyndham Henderson hotel, the first new-construction property to display our new logo," said Bill Hall, brand senior vice president. "This property's owner, Steve Sparks, has been a member of our brand family for more than nine years, and this is the third hotel he has brought into our system."

The Wingate by Wyndham Henderson hotel features 22 suites, 3,000 square feet of meeting space, 24-hour fitness and business centers and an outdoor heated pool and spa.

All Wingate by Wyndham guest rooms function both as a bedroom and an office with a desk, speakerphone and cordless phone with voicemail and conference-call capabilities, a safe, iron and ironing board and an in-room coffeemaker. Beds feature enhanced pillow-top style mattresses.

The Wingate by Wyndham all-inclusive pricing policy includes an expanded hot breakfast, high-speed wired and wireless Internet access and use of the business center, including facsimile service and computer printouts.

TripRewards® loyalty club members earn points at Wingate by Wyndham hotels that can be redeemed for hotel stays, airfare, resort vacations and a host of other retail and restaurant experiences.
