As of June 2019, the Wyndham Hotel Group had over nine thousand properties worldwide. This was roughly 3,300 more than the number of properties owned by Hilton worldwide. In terms of guestrooms, Marriott International led the list by far with over 1.3 million guestrooms worldwide in the same year.

Hotel brand valuation methodology

In order to determine and compare the brand value of hotels, the Royalty Relief approach was used. It is a brand valuation method that includes various steps, such as calculating brand strength and estimating forecast revenues, and gives the company a better understanding of its position on the market.
