The hotel chain strengthens its business tourism division as a result of the acquisition.
The hotel chain Wyndham revealed yesterday that it has purchased Dolce Hotels and Resorts for $57 million or around €50.4 million, to consolidate its position in the hotel segment dedicated to corporate and business tourism.
The US firm, a subsidiary of Wyndham Worldwide, which is listed on the NYSE, thereby takes on the management of 24 new hotels with more than 5,500 rooms. The establishments are located in the United States, Canada, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany and Belgium.
The US Group has confirmed that it will maintain and expand the Dolce brand alongside the other brands that it operates, including Wyndham, Tryp, Ramada, Baymont Inn and Travelodge. The group has 7,600 hotels in 71 countries and a total of 655,000 rooms.
In Spain, Dolce operates the Dolce Stiges, a hotel with 263 rooms, which Oaktree took ownership off at the end of last year, after it took on the €46 million debt that the previous owner, Ichindoney Parnership, held with one of its creditors, Allied Banking Corporation.
