Wyndham Hotel Group has announced the addition of the 336-room TRYP by Wyndham New York Times Square, the second TRYP by Wyndham hotel in New York City.
Located on West 48th Street between Broadway and Eighth Avenue in Times Square, TRYP by Wyndham New York Times Square, which recently completed a major multi-million dollar renovation, puts guests just steps from world-famous attractions, shopping and dining, major corporations and public transportation.
The new hotel joins New York City’s first TRYP by Wyndham location only 13 blocks away on West 35th Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues, which opened in 2012. It also comes on the heels of recent openings in Abu Dhabi and Mexico City, as well as a recently announced agreement to introduce the brand to Southeast Asia with eight locations in the Philippines over the next 10 years. Another 14 hotels are scheduled to open around the world by 2017, including new-construction projects in the U.S. in Long Island City, New York; Newark, New Jersey; and Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
“We’re excited to expand the TRYP by Wyndham name and our distinctive ‘Own the City’ brand culture in New York City, one of the world’s greatest destinations,” said Bob Loewen, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Wyndham Hotel Group. “We’re committed to introducing the brand in sought-after cities globally, as demonstrated by our recent expansion into Mexico, the Middle East and the Philippines. This city-center brand is resonating strongly with hotel developers and we’re seeing great momentum for its growth here in the U.S. and internationally.”
TRYP by Wyndham New York Times Square features eclectic, contemporary décor; a social, inviting lobby known as Plaza Central, with a bar, a blog wall featuring news and programming from around the world; free Wi-Fi; LobbyFriend, a temporary online social network; and the brand’s signature Fitness and Family rooms.
The property features 45 over-sized Family rooms with bunk beds for children and separate beds for adults, as well as five Fitness rooms, which come complete with stationary bikes, a yoga mat and a fitness kit for a private workout. All 336 rooms and suites feature free high-speed Wi-Fi and flat-screen televisions. Penthouse suites offer separate sitting areas and private balconies overlooking Manhattan.
LobbyFriend, a temporary online social network, fosters an interactive atmosphere at the hotel by allowing guests to network, socialize and communicate with each other and hotel staff during their stays. Additional hotel amenities and services include a fitness center, business services and a blog wall in the Plaza Central comprised of multiple screens that keep guests updated on local events and news around the city.
TRYP by Wyndham New York Times Square is managed by Hampshire Hotels Management, a global leader in managed properties in the United States, Thailand and India.
The hotel was formerly a Best Western Plus.
