Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has added a 21st brand, Registry Collection Hotels, comprised of independent luxury properties. The brand, according to an announcement, allows owners to maintain their independent spirit and brand individuality while tapping into the global scale of Wyndham Hotels & Resorts along with its Wyndham Rewards loyalty program, helping them to drive more direct bookings at a lower cost of distribution. Geoff Ballotti, CEO of Wyndham, said Registry fills an important space at the upper end of the Wyndham Hotels & Resorts portfolio, allowing the company to very selectively provide support to independent hoteliers around the globe “who meet the highest standards of luxury service and accommodations." Registry Collection Hotels debuted with the brand's flagship resort, the 144-room, all-suite, Grand Residences Riviera Cancun.
