PARSIPPANY, NJ—Wyndham Hotel Group has added the 336-room TRYP by Wyndham New York Times Square, the second TRYP by Wyndham hotel in New York City, to its lifestyle brand’s growing global portfolio.
Located on West 48th St. between Broadway and Eighth Ave. in Times Square, TRYP by Wyndham New York Times Square recently completed a major multimillion-dollar renovation.
The new hotel joins New York City’s first TRYP by Wyndham location on West 35th St. between Eighth and Ninth Aves., which opened in 2012. It also comes on the heels of recent openings in Abu Dhabi and Mexico City, as well as a recently announced agreement to introduce the brand to Southeast Asia with eight locations in the Philippines over the next 10 years. Another 14 hotels are scheduled to open around the world by 2017, including new-construction projects in the U.S. in Long Island City, NY; Newark, NJ; and Fort Lauderdale, FL.
“We’re excited to expand the TRYP by Wyndham name and our distinctive ‘Own the City’ brand culture in New York City, one of the world’s greatest destinations,” said Bob Loewen, EVP and COO at Wyndham Hotel Group. “We’re committed to introducing the brand in sought-after cities globally, as demonstrated by our recent expansion into Mexico, the Middle East and the Philippines. This city-center brand is resonating strongly with hotel developers and we’re seeing great momentum for its growth here in the U.S. and internationally.”
TRYP by Wyndham New York Times Square features a lobby known as Plaza Central, with a bar and a blog wall featuring news and programming from around the world; free WiFi; LobbyFriend, a temporary online social network; and the brand’s signature Fitness and Family rooms.
The property features 45 family rooms with bunk beds for children and separate beds for adults, as well as five fitness rooms, which come with stationary bikes, a yoga mat and a fitness kit for a private workout. All 336 rooms and suites feature free high-speed WiFi and flat-screen televisions. Penthouse suites offer separate sitting areas and private balconies overlooking Manhattan.
