TRENTON, NJ—Welcome Hotel Group, LLC, is celebrating the grand re-opening of the 164-room Wyndham Garden Trenton hotel.
To date the renovations program has completely made over the hotel’s first level with new marble floors and columns, modern rugs and wall treatments, and contemporary artwork and case goods to create an upscale, yet comfortable, sense of arrival. Special attention was paid to dining with the new Trenton Room Restaurant, which offers guests fresh, seasonal cuisine. The food and beverage upgrade includes a new kitchen and bathroom spaces, to create a delightful ambiance that is casual yet upscale.
The hotel’s more than 10,000 sq. ft. of flexible and multi‐functional meeting and conference space is now the “newest” in downtown Trenton, according to the Welcome Hotel Group. The hotel’s nine meeting rooms and a 6,000‐sq.‐ft. ballroom, which can accommodate up to 350 people, have been refreshed with new wall treatments and furniture. All 164 hotel rooms have received new case good furniture, as well as large flat screen televisions.
The celebration marks a new direction in the vision of hotelier Dr. Bran N. Viswanath to invest in the Trenton community and to expand his business interests into the hospitality industry. “This is our first major investment in hospitality after successfully growing our media portfolio of television and radio stations,” stated Viswanath.
He continued, “Our goal is to duplicate our success in broadcasting to benefit both Trenton and our company. Since last December, we have spent significant time and resources to bring the hotel out of bankruptcy and create a new standard in hospitality for downtown Trenton. When guests enter the hotel they will experience a new level of hospitality from outstanding service to a completely new and fresh look in the lobby to all guestrooms that meet Wyndham Garden’s strict brand standards. Guest response has been overwhelmingly positive. We have several more touches to complete over the next 10 months, which we will do in phases to eliminate any guest disruptions.”

For the past few years, the talk of The Lodging Conference in Phoenix had been focused on the economic recovery, solid industry projections and “cautious optimism.” With the word cautious no longer necessary, the economic outlook took a backseat this year to the seemingly unending parade of new lifestyle brands.
