Construction of the first Tryp by Wyndham hotel in Florida is well underway right here in our own Marina Bay!
The hotel, which Wyndham describes as the place where “maritime meets sophistication,” is ideally located in Marina Bay, one of Ft. Lauderdale’s premier luxury motor yacht marinas, and of course home to one of the city’s leading yacht brokers – 26 North Yachts.
According to the Sun Sentinel, after one or two typical construction delays, the hotel is slated to open in spring of 2017. Speaking to the Sentinel, Sonja Armstrong, a spokesperson for the developer said, “We’re up to the seventh floor and will start pouring the eighth floor soon.”
The eight-story, 150-room hotel project is estimated at $23 million.
Appeal to Boaters and Yacht Enthusiasts
The hotel, officially named Tryp Maritime by Wyndham, is being built at 2161 W. State Road 84. It is designed to be the “jewel in the crown” of the expanding Marina Mile along State Road 84. The hope of the builders is that the Tryp Maritime will cater to the clientele who frequent the many marine related businesses, such as boat brokerages, marinas and repair yards, which are part of the State Road 84 marina district. As such, according to the builder, “it will have a nautical-inspired design, including cruise ship elements and photography of marine life throughout common areas, hallways and rooms. The hotel will also offer a European-style tapas bar, featuring 11 aquariums with a variety of marine wildlife.”
Tryp by Wyndam Hotels are already open in New York, and New Jersey. The Tryp Maritime will be their first property in Florida.
According to Wyndam, there will also be options for guests who want to extend their stay, with equally luxurious long term rentals and corporate apartments. These apartments will be adjacent to the main hotel, where long-term guest will have “access to the country club-style amenities of these gated residential communities.”
Guests of the hotel will also only be steps away from our charter fleet, and some of our yachts for sale, should they be here shopping for an amazing 70-140 foot luxury motor yacht.
We could not be happier to welcome the Tryp Maritime to be our new neighbors in Marina Bay, and we look forward to what the project will bring to our area, as well as to offering their visitors and guests unique experiences, such as exciting day charters to Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and West Palm Beach.
