Tryp by Wyndham, Wyndham Hotel Group’s urban lifestyle brand, arrived in central Texas with the opening of a newly constructed 166-room hotel in the College Station metropolitan areas. It marks the brand’s first location in Texas and fourth in the U.S.

Tryp by Wyndham celebrates the spirit of the urban traveler offering an insider’s look at a city’s uniqueness. Located steps from Texas A&M University, the property adopts the ‘Aggieland’ experience by integrating local culture and school spirit into every aspect of a guest’s stay.

Tryp by Wyndham is in the midst of a global growth spree, widening its footprint of more than 110 hotels with recent milestone openings including Tryp by Wyndham Dubai, the brand’s largest hotel at 650 rooms, and Tryp by Wyndham Xi’an, the first Tryp hotel in China. The brand also recently added the Tryp by Wyndham Sebastian St. Augustine in Florida and expects to nearly double its U.S. portfolio in the coming year with highly anticipated openings planned for Fort Lauderdale and Bay Harbor, Fla.; and Newark, N.J.

“Whether it’s tailgating at a Texas A&M football game or taking a meeting in the city’s burgeoning business sector, College Station has become an increasingly popular destination for visitors,” Kate Ashton, brand SVP, Tryp by Wyndham, said in a statement. “With its urban flair, local charm and inimitable style, Tryp by Wyndham is a perfect fit for growing markets like College Station. The hotel complements recent openings in Xi’an and Dubai, offering guests a gateway to authentic local experiences with a distinct culture they can’t get anywhere else.”

Contemporary guestrooms include 27 of the brand’s signature Family Rooms. With bunk beds for kids and larger, separate beds for adults, they serve as a home base for families to relax after attending local sporting events or visiting nearby attractions such as the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum and the Texas World Speedway.

The onsite Gastropub offers breakfast each morning and locally inspired tapas-style dishes throughout the day and night – a hallmark of the Tryp by Wyndham brand and a nod to its Spanish roots. The hotel, owned by Texas-based Vine Hospitality, also includes free high-speed Wi-Fi, a library accommodating up to 35 people for small meetings or private events, a pool and a 24-hour fitness center.
