A new Wyndham hotel has opened its doors in Mayaguez. It’s the second TRYP by Wyndham in Puerto Rico, joining the existing TRYP by Wyndham in Isla Verde.
The pet-friendly hotel is located in the historic center of Mayaguez, with a total of 51 rooms and suites. Amenities at the $6.8 million property include a pool, gym, a market, ample parking, a business center and high-speed internet.
The hotel has already begun a $1.6 million second phase of expansion, one that will add eight more suite-style rooms to the property, an activity center and a restaurant, which will be located in the Old Casa Cabeza, whose concept will focus on promoting local gastronomy, beers and rums from the western region.
“The tourism project has rehabilitated several neighboring properties, creating a multiplier effect in the area,” said Erick Ruiz, owner of the hotel. “This development generates more than 40 direct jobs. In addition, to the 50 jobs generated in its design and reconstruction. The new hotel welcomes business travelers as well as families with a unique design and one-of-a-kind amenities.”
The TRYP hotel in Mayaguez offers a new alternative in lodging to visitors to the Porta del Sol region, said Puerto Rico Tourism Co. Executive Director Carlos Mercado.
“It’s gratifying that Puerto Rican entrepreneurs take a step forward in carrying out new projects for the growth and strengthening of the island’s tourism industry that will result in the creation of new jobs and sustained economic development for Puerto Rico,” Mercado added.
