PARSIPPANY, N.J.—Wyndham Hotel Group announced its second TRYP by Wyndham property in New York City with the signing of a franchise agreement for a 334-room hotel in Times Square.
The hotel, scheduled to open by spring 2015, is undergoing a multimillion dollar renovation and redesign led by owner and operator Hampshire Hotels Management.
TRYP by Wyndham New York Times Square will feature contemporary décor alongside the brand’s signature amenities, including a gastro bar serving cocktails and tapas-style dishes; Plaza Central, which serves as the social center for guests with comfortable seating and integrated connectivity; and meeting space in the on-site library.
“With such a prime location, thoughtful offerings, and a respected partner in Hampshire Hotels Management, this signing marks a significant milestone in our efforts to expand the TRYP by Wyndham brand in the world’s most cosmopolitan cities,” said Bill Hall, brand senior vice president of TRYP by Wyndham.
Signature guestrooms at TRYP by Wyndham New York Times Square will include five fFitness rooms, which feature fitness equipment for a private workout, and 45 over-sized family rooms with bunk beds for children and a larger, separate bed for adults.
Additional amenities and services will include free high-speed wireless internet access; a coffee bar; the brand’s signature blog wall, comprised of two 46-inch screens to keep guests updated on local events and connected to hotel staff; business services; and a fitness center.
“The Times Square District is growing at a rapid pace, and we’re thrilled to be working with TRYP by Wyndham as they bring their second property here to life,” said Eric Danziger, president and CEO of Hampshire Hotels Management. “The TRYP by Wyndham brand culture is rooted in passion for guests and the neighborhood alike, and we look forward to seeing this new hotel thrive right in the heart of New York City.”
Since 2013, the brand has expanded globally with signings and openings in major cities throughout Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East, including Panama City, Istanbul, Amsterdam, and Dubai. Domestically, Wyndham Hotel Group announced the signing of a franchise agreement earlier this year for a new-construction TRYP by Wyndham hotel in Long Island City, N.Y., scheduled to open in 2016. The brand portfolio currently consists of nearly 120 hotels and 17,000 rooms across Europe and the Americas.
