Wyndham Hotel Group announced the signing of the largest hotel development in the Brickell district of Miami to its managed hotel portfolio: a new 445-room, dual-branded hotel leveraging a never-before-seen combination of the upper-upscale Wyndham Grand and select-service, lifestyle TRYP by Wyndham brands.
Owned by Brazilian developer Galwan and designed by award-winning firm Arquitectonica, the agreement comprises 445 guestrooms in Miami's trendy Brickell neighborhood. The hotel, expected to open in late 2019, is the first U.S. development for Galwan, one of the largest residential and hotel developers in Brazil.
"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."
Two brands, one destination
The 41-story 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 sq. ft. 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.
This will be the Wyndham Grand brand's fourth hotel in Florida, joining established resorts in Clearwater Beach, Orlando and Jupiter.
The hotel adds to TRYP's existing portfolio in Florida which includes locations in Fort Lauderdaleand St. Augustine. Most recently the brand opened the TRYP by Wyndham College Station, its first hotel in Texas.
