Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, with 9,100 hotels across more than 95 countries, has unveiled the name of its 24th brand, ECHO Suites Extended Stay by Wyndham.

Officially the fastest-growing brand in Wyndham’s development pipeline, the brand has 120 hotels in its plans across the U.S. (as of September 30), ahead of the company’s previously shared end-of-year goal.

“In six short months, ECHO Suites Extended Stay by Wyndham has secured its place as the fastest growing brand in our development pipeline, highlighting continued, robust demand from both travelers and developers for budget-friendly, extended stay offerings,” says Geoff Ballotti, president and CEO Wyndham Hotels & Resorts. “Imagined and designed from day one with the constant input, review, and oversight of many of our nation’s most experienced extended-stay developers, Echo Suites was engineered with one specific goal in mind: creating a ROI-driven prototype that is as cost-efficient to build as it is to operate.”

According to a news release, ECHO Suites was crafted “to help maximize efficiencies and reduce operating costs, all while providing a ‘home away from home’ optimized for longer-term guests.”

“More than ever, travelers today are looking for value, especially long-term guests booking extended stays. At the same time, they want a space that looks and feels like them. A space that’s well-designed and inviting,” Ballotti adds. “We believe if you can give them that, they will come back, night after night, stay after stay. That’s what ECHO Suites is all about: giving guests a great extended stay experience, at a great price, so that, like an echo, they repeat it, over and over again.”

Following the groundbreaking of its first hotel in Plano, Texas with Dallas-based Gulf Coast Hotel Management this past September, ECHO Suites recently announced its second and third hotels in Sterling, Va. and Richmond, Va. Both hotels are being developed by Richmond-based Sandpiper Hospitality, one of the brand’s first and largest developers.

The purpose-built, all-new-construction, 124-room ECHO Suites prototype requires just under two acres of land. Coming in at approximately 50,000 square feet—nearly 74 percent of which is rentable—individual rooms average 300 square feet. The rooms consist of single- and two-queen studio suites with kitchens as well as public spaces—a lobby, fitness center, and 24/7 guest laundry.

The company expects to open its first ECHO Suites hotels in 2023. For more information, including development opportunities, visit projectecho.wyndhamhotels.com.
