The new hotel joins New York City's first TRYP by Wyndham location on West 35th Street between eighth and ninth avenues, which opened in 2012. It also comes on the heels of recent openings in Abu Dhabi and Mexico City, as well as a recently-announced agreement to introduce the brand to Southeast Asia with eight locations in the Philippines over the next 10 years. Another 13 hotels are scheduled to open around the world by 2017, including new-construction projects in the U.S. in Long Island City, N.Y.; Newark, N.J.; and Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

TRYP by Wyndham New York Times Square has a social lobby known as Plaza Central, with a bar, a blog wall with news and programming from around the world; free Wi-Fi; LobbyFriend, a temporary online social network; and the brand's Fitness and Family rooms.

The property has 45 over-sized Family rooms with bunk beds for children and separate beds for adults, as well as five Fitness rooms, which come complete with stationary bikes, a yoga mat and a fitness kit for a private workout. All 336 rooms and suites have free high-speed Wi-Fi and flat-screen televisions. Penthouse suites offer separate sitting areas and private balconies overlooking Manhattan.

LobbyFriend, a temporary online social network, fosters an interactive atmosphere at the hotel by allowing guests to network, socialize and communicate with each other and hotel staff during their stays. Additional hotel amenities and services include a fitness center, business services and a blog wall in the Plaza Central comprised of multiple screens that keep guests updated on local events and news around the city.

TRYP by Wyndham New York Times Square is managed by Hampshire Hotels Management.
