LONG ISLAND CITY, NY Wyndham Hotel Group is expanding its TRYP by Wyndham brand with the signing of a franchise agreement for a new-construction, 104-room hotel slated to open here in spring 2016.

It will join sister property TRYP by Wyndham New York City Times Square South, the brand’s first hotel in the United States.

“Long Island City has become a prime, burgeoning destination for travelers and New Yorkers alike by offering immediate access to all that New York City has to offer at a more affordable cost,” stated Bill Hall, brand SVP. “The TRYP by Wyndham brand is all about displaying passion for our guests and the cities we serve, and we couldn’t be more excited to extend our philosophy to this neighborhood.”

Owned by 559 Development, LLC, the property will be located at 38-55 Eleventh St., and will offer a gastro bar and the Plaza Central, the open lobby that serves as a social hub for guests with comfortable seating areas, integrated connectivity and business services.

Guestrooms will include a Fitness room, offering equipment for a private workout; an oversize Family room with bunk beds for children and a larger, separate bed for adults; and the Samsung Experience room, which will feature high-tech multimedia.

Additional hotel amenities and services will include free high-speed wireless Internet access, a fitness center, a rooftop café and bar with panoramic views of the New York City skyline and access to public transportation.
