Exhibit (a)(1)(O)

To: All Team Members

Dear Team,
We just issued a press release in response to Choice Hotels’ announcement that it intends to nominate directors to Wyndham’s Board, as we expected.
This is another attempt by Choice to pressure our Board into accepting an offer we have rejected numerous times, in part because it dramatically undervalues Wyndham and our superior, standalone growth prospects. Choice has continued to underestimate how long and challenging an antitrust review will be and the substantial risk it presents to our Company and shareholders. Just last week, the FTC requested additional information in connection with the proposed transaction in what’s called a Second Request, confirming what we’ve said all along: this will be a lengthy process with an uncertain outcome.
Our Board, led by our Chairman Steve Holmes, remains fully committed to doing what is right for our shareholders and for Wyndham. As we communicated last month, the Board unanimously determined that Choice’s offer is NOT in the best interests of Wyndham shareholders and continues to recommend Wyndham shareholders NOT tender their shares into Choice’s exchange offer. Choice’s actions today don’t change that recommendation.
What does nominating director candidates mean?
Choice’s nomination does not mean that their director candidates have joined or will join our Board. Rather, they are merely proposing candidates who would only join our Board if elected at our 2024 annual meeting of shareholders. This latest move by Choice is yet another self-serving attempt to force through their inadequate offer by trying to install their own people on our Board who would rubber stamp their offer.
What comes next?
In line with our established processes, our Board will carefully evaluate Choice’s nominees and make a recommendation to Wyndham shareholders on how to vote. Any decisions about the Board will be voted on by shareholders at our annual meeting. Nothing changes today.
While Choice has chosen to put forward nominees, we are confident our Board is the right one to support our objectives and advise our Executive Committee as we execute our strategy to drive long-term success and value creation. Our Board members bring decades of international hospitality and travel industry experience as well as expertise in key areas critical to the successful execution of our strategy, including franchise businesses, law, operations, M&A, finance, accounting, marketing and media. We are committed to maintaining a strong, independent Board that serves the best interests of our Company, including our shareholders.

We appreciate there has been a lot of news around this situation over the past few months and thank you for your continued focus as we start the new year. Should someone outside the Company reach out, please do not engage and instead direct them to Maire Griffin at Maire.Griffin@wyndham.com.
We’ll continue sharing important updates with you when we can. You can also visit StayWyndham.com for the most recent materials and information.
As always, thank you for all that you do.
