ISTANBUL, TURKEY—Wyndham Hotel Group debuted its select-service Tryp by Wyndham brand in Turkey with the opening of the 108-room Tryp by Wyndham Istanbul Taksim.
The 10-story hotel adds to Wyndham’s properties in Turkey, which consist of 12 Ramadas and the newly opened Wyndham Istanbul Kalamis Marina, which debuted last month. The second Wyndham hotel in the country, the 306-room Wyndham Istanbul Petek, is scheduled to open this summer.
“With its rapidly growing tourism industry, Turkey is full of opportunity for hotel development, especially in a vibrant city like Istanbul,” said Rui Barros, Wyndham Hotel Group’s SVP/managing director, EMEA.
Guestrooms feature free high-speed wireless Internet access, contemporary décor and flat-screen televisions. Hotel services and amenities include an on-site fitness center, complimentary high-speed wireless Internet access throughout the property and airport transfer services. Two meeting and event rooms, complete with audio-visual equipment and services, can accommodate up to 70 guests.
Tryp by Wyndham Istanbul Taksim is owned and operated by Tunç Otelcilik Limited Şirketi, which also operates the recently opened 102-room Ramada Hotel & Suites Istanbul Atakoy.
