Tryp By Wyndham Gets A Sign
It looks like things are coming along at the new Tryp By Wyndham near Times Square. Though the hotel has definitely breezed by its planned November opening, a near-finished lobby (see photos below) and newly-installed signage should mean we start to see some action here after the holidays.
This is of course just a fraction of the mega hotel explosion that New York City is about to endure over the next few years, as per Bloomberg's vision. But all 7,000 hotel rooms are not created equal—nor do they simply appear overnight. For instance, over the next few months, we should be looking at a new Conrad New York (fancy art), a Hyatt in Union Square (super awesome location), and the elusive NoMad (has a glass pyramid). Not to mention The Out NYC (NYC's first gay hotel).
From what we can see, the lobby has a pretty beige and maroon mosaic tiled floor throughout, matched by carved wood fixtures (walls, desk, cabinets) everywhere. The lobby itself is a decent size, as is fitting for these select service hotels, and the rooms likely share the same clean, sparse design.
173 rooms down, only 6,827 to go!
