CLEARWATER BEACH, Fla.
Wyndham Hotel Group has announced the signing of a management agreement to expand its upscale Wyndham Hotels and Resorts brand in Florida with the addition of a beachfront Wyndham Grand Resort in Clearwater Beach, Fla.
The new-construction, 450-room Wyndham Grand Resort Clearwater Beach, which has broken ground on South Gulfview Boulevard at the north end of the prominent Beach Walk, will become one of the largest hotel resorts in the market upon opening in early 2017. With approximately 24,000 square feet of event space, it will also house one of the largest banquet and meeting facilities in Florida's Pinellas County. The development is expected to generate more than 1,900 jobs for the area.
Wyndham Grand Resort Clearwater Beach is owned by Florida philanthropist Dr. Kiran Patel, a long-standing partner of Wyndham Hotel Group who owns two Wyndham Grand properties in Tucson, Ariz., and Pittsburgh, Pa.
Services and amenities at Wyndham Grand Resort Clearwater Beach will include a large outdoor pool complex, a full-service spa, multiple restaurants accessible from the Beach Walk and immediate access to one of America's favorite beaches. It is located just 20 minutes from downtown Tampa and Tampa International Airport.
