Bio
In 1954 a group of investors opened an inn in Flagstaff, Arizona, the first in a series of motor hotels to be opened by the group. Five years later, the chain was named Ramada, meaning "a shaded resting place" in Spanish.

Today Ramada Worldwide by Wyndham is part of the Wyndham Hotels & Resorts group.
