New York City area’s second TRYP by Wyndham hotel planned for 2016
Known for its differentiating "Own the City" service culture, the TRYP by Wyndham brand's passion for helping guests make the most of their travels will come to life in the Queens Borough neighborhood upon the opening of TRYP by Wyndham Long Island City, scheduled for spring 2016. It will join sister property TRYP by Wyndham New York City Times Square South, the brand's first hotel in the U.S.
"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," said Bill Hall, brand senior vice president of TRYP by Wyndham. "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."
The addition of TRYP by Wyndham Long Island City, owned by 559 Development LLC, is a key step in expanding the select-service hotel brand in key cosmopolitan cities in the United States and around the globe. In 2013, Wyndham Hotel Group announced key signings and openings in major cosmopolitan cities throughout Central America, Europe and the Middle East, including Panama City, Istanbul, Amsterdam, Antwerp, Brussels, and Dubai. The brand's portfolio currently consists of 114 hotels and more than 16,200 rooms across Europe and the Americas.
TRYP by Wyndham Long Island City, located at 38-55 Eleventh Street, will offer TRYP by Wyndham's signature elements, including an on-site gastro bar and the Plaza Central, the open, inviting lobby that serves as a social hub for guests with comfortable seating areas, integrated connectivity and business services.
Signature guest rooms will include a Fitness room, offering state-of-the-art fitness equipment for a private workout; an over-sized 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 to create an interactive, entertaining atmosphere.
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 immediate access to public transportation.
