 Wyndham Hotels and Resorts is an international hotel and resort chain based in the United States. It has locations in Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador, Turkey,Germany, the UK, the Caribbean and Margarita Island In Venezuela. The company sold many of its hotels in the early 2000s.

Wyndham Hotel Corporation was founded in 1981 in Dallas, Texas, by  Trammell Crow, the president of Trammel Crow Company (TCC). The company appears to have been named after a friend of Crow's, a woman named Wyndham Robertson, who wrote a profile of him for Fortune. As the company grew, it eventually merged with a hotel REIT called Patriot American Hospitality (PAH). Patriot American organized the combined company as a paired-share REIT, in which Patriot owned the real estate assets and leased the hotels to Wyndham to run.
