Wyndham Hotel Group signed the largest hotel development in the Brickell district of Miami to its managed hotel portfolio: the new 445-room, dual-branded hotel consists of a never-before-seen combination of the Wyndham Grand and TRYP by Wyndham brands.

Owned by Brazilian developer Galwan and designed by award-winning firm Aquitechtonica, the agreement comprises 445 guestrooms in Miami’s 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,” Mark Kukulski, president of Wyndham Hotel Group’s management organization, said in a statement. “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.”

Today, nearly 400 dual-branded hotels are open or under construction in the U.S. That number is projected to grow over the next several years as travelers seek personalized experiences—the choice of brands allows guests to customize their trip without sacrificing convenience. The 41-story hotel will offer 200 rooms under Wyndham Grand and 245 rooms under TRYP by Wyndham, including the brand’s 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 event spaces. The hotel’s rooftop will include a three-meal restaurant and bar inspired by the TRYP brand’s Mediterranean roots.

The upper-upscale Wyndham Grand brand can be found in destinations around the world. This will be the brand’s fourth hotel in Florida, joining established resorts in Clearwater Beach, Orlando and Jupiter.

TRYP by Wyndham properties are located in some of the world’s most cosmopolitan cities. The hotel adds to TRYP’s existing portfolio in Florida which includes locations in Fort Lauderdale and St. Augustine. Most recently the brand opened the TRYP by Wyndham College Station (Texas).
