The Ramada Nanjing is one of eight Ramada hotels expected to open in China all the way through to 2017, increasing the brand’s portfolio in the country by more than 10%. The 245-room Ramada Plaza Chibi in Hubei is also expected to open later this year. The property will be located near the city's new government offices and adjacent to a railway station. The hotel will offer an on-site business center, ballroom and meeting facilities. Three on-site restaurants will also be available. 

The brand currently has over 60 hotels in China and more than 840 hotels across 50 countries worldwide, with a global development pipeline of 183 hotels. "Ramada is a well-known, global brand that is highly regarded in the minds of travellers and it's because of these traits that the brand continues to see strong interest from the hotel development community," said Leo Liu, President and MD, Wyndham Hotel Group, Greater China. "With these newest properties, we're strengthening the brand's footprint in China and expanding its reach into what we believe to be key second-tier and third-tier cities.

"Nanjing is well-known for being a national centre of education as well as tourism and the addition of this newest hotel helps to further diversify our already strong presence in city, where we'll now have representation by three of Wyndham Hotel Group's most prominent brands: Ramada, Days Inn and Super 8."
