Wyndham is adding to its portfolio of over 9,000 properties with the addition of 16 LuxUrban hotels in major U.S. urban markets. Here’s what you need to know about this announcement from the hotel chain.

New Wyndham Properties Added

On August 3, 2023, Wyndham revealed a newly-signed deal to bring 16 LuxUrban hotels, representing approximately 1,400 rooms, into the Trademark Collection by Wyndham brand later this year.

The hotels span across the U.S. with locations in Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York, and Washington, D.C. While the LuxUrban branding will remain, the hotels will gain affiliation and recognition via the Trademark and Wyndham brand names.

Wyndham’s Trademark Collection is geared toward 3- and 4-star hotel owners looking to tap into the scale and resources of Wyndham while maintaining independence. Today, the brand includes more than 185 hotels in nearly 25 countries.

“We created Trademark Collection by Wyndham specifically to cater to the needs of operators like LuxUrban,” said Wyndham’s chief development officer Chip Ohlsson in a statement. “So many hotels today, particularly those in urban destinations, have a distinct character and unique charm that hoteliers want to hold on to. At the same time, they want the visibility, distribution, and support that comes with being part of a well-known brand. 

How To Earn Wyndham Rewards Points

There are several ways to earn Wyndham Rewards points. That includes stays at properties and transferring points from Capital One Miles or Citi ThankYou Points.

Another method to acquire points is to have 1 of the 3 co-branded Barclays credit cards. The Wyndham Rewards® Earner℠ Plus Card charges a $75 annual fee and includes Wyndham Platinum status along with 7,500 bonus points for each account anniversary. The no-annual-fee Wyndham Rewards® Earner℠ Card includes Wyndham Gold status and 7,500 bonus points on each account anniversary when you spend $15,000 on the card. Finally, the Wyndham Rewards® Earner℠ Business Card is the top-level card available at $95 per year.

Final Thoughts

While it may be easier to earn (and redeem) points with the other major chains than it is with Wyndham, there’s still quite a strong value proposition to consider when thinking about Wyndham Rewards points.

The chain now has 16 more properties in its portfolio with the opportunity for additional hotels to join thereafter.
