TRYP by Wyndham brand debuts in Turkey
Launch of mid-price select-service brand in line with growth in Turkey
Wyndham Hotel Group has introduced its select-service TRYP by Wyndham hotel brand in Turkey with the opening of the 108-room TRYP by Wyndham Istanbul Taksim.
The 10-story hotel is centrally located in Taksim, in the centre of Istanbul, and joins TRYP by Wyndham’s 73 hotels in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA).
It also adds to Wyndham Hotel Group’s growing collection of properties in Turkey, which comprises 12 Ramada hotels and the Wyndham Istanbul Kalamis Marina, which debuted last month.
The second Wyndham hotel in the country, the 306-room Wyndham Istanbul Petek, is scheduled to open in summer 2013.
“With its rapidly growing tourism industry, Turkey is full of opportunity for hotel development, especially in a vibrant city like Istanbul,” said Wyndham Hotel Group’s senior vice president and managing director, EMEA Rui Barros.
“The introduction of this cosmopolitan brand to the country helps expand our presence in this vital market while also providing travellers with the desirable blend of high-quality accommodations, city-centre convenience and customer-centric ‘Own the City’ culture that differentiates TRYP by Wyndham.”
Guest rooms at TRYP by Wyndham Istanbul Taksim feature free high-speed wireless internet access, contemporary décor and flat screen televisions.
Hotel services and amenities include an on-site fitness centre and airport transfer services. Two meeting and event rooms can accommodate up to 70 guests.
TRYP by Wyndham Istanbul Taksim is owned and operated by Tunç Otelcilik Limited Şirketi, which also operates the recently opened 102-room Ramada Hotel & Suites Istanbul Atakoy.
