TRYP by Wyndham, Wyndham Hotel Group’s brand, opened its newest hotel in Fort Lauderdale, the TRYP by Wyndham Maritime Fort Lauderdale, anchoring the city’s four-star Marina Bay, a premier luxury yacht marina in the ‘Yachting Capital of the World.’
Fort Lauderdale, a flourishing travel destination with an ever-growing airport, cruise port and convention center, inspired the hotel’s nautical design incorporating nods to the local marine life and sailing culture. The hotel also features original artwork of South Florida’s underwater splendor by noted marine ecologist and photographer Richard Murphy.
“Symbolized by the picturesque surrounding marina, Fort Lauderdale is a city famous for beautiful beaches, boating canals and upscale dining and boutiques,” said Kate Ashton, senior vice president, TRYP by Wyndham. “Offering a true glimpse into that seafaring style, TRYP by Wyndham Maritime Fort Lauderdale personifies the destination through nautical design, marina-centered amenities and local sea-inspired fare.”
The 150-room, new construction hotel is situated on 25 acres with easy access to boat charters, slip rentals and a cabana-lined pool and outdoor deck. Guests can enjoy relaxing at the Zen Tea garden and koi pond and nibbling on small plates at the hotel’s European-style tapas bar – a trademark of the TRYP brand – featuring 11 aquariums housing local marine life.
