About TRYP New York City Times Square South
From the busy bar in the lobby to the name itself – TRYP – this hotel has a youthful energy. Service is upbeat and the restaurant, Gastro Bar, is stocked with excellent Spanish wines and tapas, from garlic-soaked shrimp to grilled squid. If it all feels a bit European, that’s because TRYP, now run by Wyndham, is part of the Spanish Sol Melia chain. As the New York Times puts it: It’s a “Midtown hotel with a bit of Barcelona.” The lobby, dubbed “Plaza Central,” reveals plenty of Mediterranean flavor, including undulating sofas inspired by Gaudi’s architecture.
The hotel is on 35th St., so its designation as “Times Square South” is a something of a NYC real-estate exaggeration. But it’s just a few paces from Herald Square and the largest Macy’s in the world, and about an eight-minute walk from the heart of Times Square.
The standard rooms are snug but generously appointed, with a contemporary cosmopolitan feel – light-wood floors, a headboard that looks like a chalkboard – plus free Wi-Fi and Keurig coffeemakers. TRYP also offers special family rooms designed to accommodate groups, with bunk beds, a living-room area and two TVs, which help to resolve any inter-generational squabbling over what to watch. And the hotel keeps the younger set entertained with fun amenities like complimentary Wii games. At the other end of the spectrum, the hotel has Fitness Rooms equipped with an exercise bike – perfect for the multi-tasking business traveler.
TRYP pulls in international visitors and families in particular who appreciate the central location, colorful decor and spacious rooms, including those with bunk beds designed specifically for groups.
