Wyndham Hotel Group, the world’s largest hotel company with over 7,150 hotels and a member of the Wyndham Worldwide (NYSE: WYN) family, today announced that it reached the 500th property milestone in the Asia Pacific region with the opening of the Super 8 Nanjing Shan Xi Lu in China’s Jiangsu Province.
