PARSIPPANY, NJ — Wyndham Hotel Group has announced the signing of the largest hotel development in the trendy Brickell district of Miami to its managed hotel portfolio: a new 445-room, dual-branded hotel leveraging a first-time combination of the Wyndham Grand and TRYP by Wyndham brands.
The hotel is expected to open in late 2019.
“With nearly 16 million visitors last year and projected increases for the years ahead, Miami continues to be one of the world’s most coveted travel destinations with a style all its own,” said Mark Kukulski, president of Wyndham Hotel Group’s management organization. “By combining our most worldly, destination-centric brands, we’re offering travelers a taste of Wyndham Hotel Group, Miami-style – with chic shared spaces, trendy dining options and their choice of brand experience via TRYP by Wyndham’s lifestyle flair or Wyndham Grand’s easy elegance.”
The ‘two brands, one destination’ is a new and growing trend, with close to 400 dual-branded hotels open or under construction in the U.S. Kukulski says that number is projected to grow at a rapid pace over the next several years.
The 41-storey hotel will offer 200 rooms under Wyndham Grand and 245 rooms under TRYP by Wyndham, including the brand’s signature family rooms with extra space and bunk beds for kids. The hotels share a lobby and lounge space on the first floor, an eight-story parking garage, a pool deck, a fitness center and 8,000 square feet of meeting space including a library, boardroom and flexible event spaces. The hotel’s rooftop will feature a three-meal restaurant and bar inspired by the TRYP brand’s Mediterranean roots.
Wyndham’s global portfolio has 8,300+ hotels.
