Super 8, a leading international hotel chain with 40 years of history and more than 2,300 hotels, recently opened its 500th store in China, keeping it on track to become one of the world's largest economy hotel chains.

Nine years after the first Super 8 (China) opened in Beijing, the hotel chain, which provides quality, affordable accommodations for both business travelers and budget-conscious tourists, has made significant strides with a presence in almost 200 cities, cementing its position as an economy hotel leader in the country.

Super 8 brand is affiliated with Wyndham Hotel Group, the world's largest hotel company with approximately 7,440 hotels and part of Wyndham Worldwide Corporation.

Super 8 (China) is majority owned by a fund sponsored by Aetos Capital Real Estate, LP, an investment manager focused on the Asian real estate market.

"The brand's rapid expansion is attributed to its successful franchising model as well as its adaptability to each diverse marketplace," said Han Chen, chief executive officer of Super 8 Hotels (China) Co. Ltd.

"The 500th property is a milestone as it demonstrates the recognition of customers and franchisees in China for the brand and franchising mode."

The 500th hotel, the Super 8 Fuzhou Jin Shan Wan Da, is operated by franchisees Shuping Chen and his friends, who opened their first Super 8 hotel a year ago in Fuzhou.

Super 8 Hotel Fuzhou Jin Shan Wan Da is situated close to the city's main tourist attractions including the Wushan Historic Scenic Area, the historic San-Fang Qi-Xiang as well as Haixia International Convention Centre and Wanda Plaza.

Neighboring the Jinshan, Juzhouyuan and Fuwan industrial parks, the hotel is ideally located for business and leisure travelers.

The 100-room property offers friendly service and rooms at affordable rates - all hallmarks of the Super 8 brand.

"This is a tremendous achievement for Wyndham Hotel Group and we are very proud of our dynamic team, franchisees and partners who have contributed to this important milestone in China," said Bob Loewen, executive vice president and chief operating officer for Wyndham Hotel Group.
