FORT LAUDERDALE, FLA.–TRYP by Wyndham, Wyndham Hotel Group’s urban lifestyle brand, opened its newest property—the TRYP by Wyndham Maritime Fort Lauderdale—anchoring the city’s four-star Marina Bay, a premier luxury yacht marina in the celebrated ‘Yachting Capital of the World.’
Celebrating the spirit of the urban traveler, TRYP by Wyndham hotels are designed to help guests uncover a destination’s authentic, local culture. With its growing airport, cruise port, and convention center, Fort Lauderdale inspired the hotel’s nautical design incorporating nods to the local marine life and sailing culture. The hotel also features original artwork of South Florida by marine ecologist and photographer Richard Murphy.
“Symbolized by the picturesque surrounding marina, Fort Lauderdale is a city famous for beautiful beaches, boating canals, and upscale dining and boutiques,” says Kate Ashton, senior vice president, TRYP by Wyndham. “Offering a true glimpse into that seafaring style, TRYP by Wyndham Maritime Fort Lauderdale personifies the destination through nautical design, marina-centered amenities, and local sea-inspired fare.”
The 150-room, newly built hotel is situated on 25 acres with easy access to boat charters, slip rentals, and a cabana-lined pool and outdoor deck. Amenities include a Zen Tea garden and koi pond and a European-style tapas bar—a trademark of the TRYP brand—featuring 11 aquariums housing local marine life.
TRYP by Wyndham Maritime Fort Lauderdale is the seventh U.S. location for the brand and the third location in Florida, joining recently opened locations in Miami’s Bay Harbor and St. Augustine. Florida continues to be a hot destination for the Mediterranean-born brand, with multiple locations in the pipeline including Coral Gables, Orlando, Kissimmee, and an additional Miami location.
TRYP by Wyndham also recently opened hotels in Newark, N.J., and College Station, Texas. The brand’s global pipeline includes approximately 29 hotels and more than 4,000 rooms in locations like Long Island City, N.Y.; El Paso, Texas; Macon, Georgia; and Pittsburgh, Pa.
