New Hotel to Open in Cardiff, Wales

Wyndham Hotel Group has announced an agreement with CHI Hotels & Resorts of Malta, its joint-venture management partner in EMEA, to operate a new, 200-room upscale hotel to be constructed along the waterfront in Cardiff, the capital of Wales.
 
The $90 million Wyndham Cardiff hotel, now under development by Bayscape Limited, is expected to open during the spring of 2013. Once completed, the 32-story building will be the tallest hotel in Wales.

The hotel will have an additional 35 serviced apartments, an indoor pool, sauna, whirlpool, fitness center, spa, two restaurants and three bars including a health bar, café and signature bar and restaurant on the 24th and 25th floors that will provide panoramic views of the bay and the city. The site is adjacent to Cardiff Marine Group’s 350-berth marina in the heart of the International Sports Village.

The project also will include 100 residential units, shops, offices and businesses, many of which will overlook the marina and the adjacent Cardiff International White Water (CIWW) center that opens this week.
 
Cardiff, the largest and most populous city in Wales, is a commercial center and base for national cultural and sporting institutions, the Welsh news media and National Assembly. It also is the most popular tourism destination in Wales, attracting 11.7 million visitors in 2009.

The Wyndham Cardiff hotel will offer guests private river bus rides to the city centre and will be a 10-minute drive from Millennium Stadium, St. David’s shopping center, the financial district of Callaghan Square, the Welsh Assembly, Mermaid Quay and the Millennium Centre.
