A Growing Footprint in a Coveted Destination

Wyndham and DRD Hotels first partnered in 2023, with the opening of the popular Ramada by Wyndham Çeşme. With robust tourism growth, a unique blend of cultural heritage, natural beauty and modern attractions, Türkiye is a prime destination for leisure and business travelers.

Turkey is a strategic priority for Wyndham due to its rising popularity and increased tourism demand. By expanding its presence, Wyndham delivers exceptional value to hotel owners through its comprehensive suite of resources and tools, all part of the Wyndham Advantage. These hotels provide outstanding guest experiences, helping drive both occupancy and revenue, and contribute to Wyndham’s leading presence in a key travel market.

In addition to the first Dolce branded property in Türkiye, the two companies opened two more hotels on the same day:

  • La Quinta by Wyndham Çeşme: Discover the charm of Çeşme at the fourth La Quinta by Wyndham in Turkey, and the first in this popular district.
