First Tryp Hotel In UAE Opens

Wyndham’s brand enters the underserved select-service mid-market

Tryp By Wyndham Abu Dhabi, the brand’s first hotel in the UAE, officially opened on Sunday night.

Although the 146-room property isn’t large by UAE standards, the opening is significant as it enters the underserved select-service, mid-market segment.

Rooms contain iPod docking stations, 42-inch flat-screen HDTVs, electronic safe and fully stocked mini-bar and executives will warm to the free wifi. Leisure facilities include a gym, outdoor pool and spa, while F&B encompasses an all-day restaurant (international buffet), Indian restaurant and 24-hour room service.

The hotel is located next to the Sheikh Khalifa Energy Complex and despite being close to five-star hotels such as Le Royal Méridien Abu Dhabi, Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche and Sheraton Abu Dhabi, won’t directly compete with them. Abu Dhabi business travellers are finding themselves with more choice beyond the five-stars with another mid-market newcomer, Courtyard by Marriott Abu Dhabi, having its official opening next Sunday.

Tryp marks the Wyndham Hotel Group’s second hotel in Abu Dhabi after Ramada Corniche.

Wyndham Hotel Group, which bought the Tryp brand from Sol Meliá Hotels & Resorts for $43 million in June 2010, is looking to expand the brand across the region.
