Wyndham's New TRYP Hotel to Open in NYC Next Year
You may not have known this but Tryp, the mid-priced European brand from Sol Melia hotels was actually acquired by Wyndham Hotels back in June. And Wyndham has wasted no time in bringing the newly re-branded Tryp by Wyndham to Americans.
The first North America property will open in--where else?--Manhattan in mid-2011 at 345 West 35th Street between Eight and Ninth Avenues. That puts the hotel within spitting distance of Madison Square Garden and close to Times Square and the Empire State Building.
To be called TRYP New York City--Times Square South, the 173-room hotel will feature the same type of guestrooms that are seen in the European and South American TRYP hotels, which is a bit of a vague statement considering that some TRYP hotel rooms are rather old. But we're guessing they mean simple rooms with simple amenities and design. As for decor, TRYP NYC will be infused with Mediterranean elements and NYC style from designer Glen Coben.
There's no word on the opening rates here but you can use and earn points with the Wyndham loyalty program at TRYP hotels. As always, we'll be keeping a watchful eye on this hotel's progress.
Meanwhile, TRYP By Wyndham is still packing heat in Europe with planned openings in Berlin, Medellin, Colombia and a 15th hotel in Madrid. We guess you can never have too many TRYPs?
