Wyndham Hotel Group has opened the first Tryp by Wyndham hotel in Colombia.

The 140-room Tryp Medellín in Medellín, the country’s second-largest city, is the brand’s fourteenth hotel in South America, joining properties in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.

The 14-story, four-star, select-service Tryp Medellín is located on Calle Colombia in the heart of the Colombian state of Antioquia’s capital city.

“Colombia is a fast-growing travel destination for both business and leisure travelers, offering booming business hubs and sought-after attractions in key destinations like Medellín,” said Daniel del Olmo, brand senior vice president of Tryp by Wyndham. “We are very excited to increase our presence in South America, an important region for our brand’s growth, and introduce Tryp by Wyndham to those visiting Colombia.”

The hotel’s 140 guest rooms include junior suites and Tryp by Wyndham’s signature family rooms, which feature a large bed for parents and bunk beds for children.

The hotel also offers the brand’s specialty fitness rooms, equipped with elliptical machines, treadmills or stationary bikes and a complimentary fitness kit complete with a workout outfit, exercise mat, mineral water and extra towels. Guests staying at the Tryp Medellín can maintain their fitness routines and relax outside their rooms at the on-site fitness center, Turkish bath, solarium and sauna.

The hotel also offers complimentary high-speed Internet access, private parking lot, business center and bar.

The hotel's restaurant offers Tryp by Wyndham’s signature buffet breakfast that includes a variety of items with special emphasis on healthy, fresh ingredients.

Four function rooms comprising more than 300 square meters (3,200 square feet) of space are equipped with state-of-the-art audio-visual equipment and can accommodate up to 400 people.

The hotel’s convenient location provides easy access to a variety of cultural centers in Medellín, including the Pablo Tobón Uribe Theatre and the Museum of Antioquia, which features the many works of Colombian artist Fernando Botero. The surrounding area, including the frequently visited Arví Regional Park in the Santa Elena Township, provides idyllic spots for camping, ecological scouting and stunning views of the city. Visitors looking for picturesque scenery in an urban environment will enjoy the mountains of the Aburrá Valley that frame Medellín as well as the Medellín River that bisects the city.

Centrally positioned for business and leisure travelers visiting Colombia, Tryp Medellín is less than 20 miles from José María Córdoba International Airport, government facilities and the Plaza Mayor Convention Center. Known as La Ciudad de la Eterna Primavera, or City of the Eternal Spring, Medellín’s average annual temperature of 72 degrees Fahrenheit, or 22 degrees Celsius, provides a temperate climate for visitors.

Continuing its expansion in the Americas, the Tryp by Wyndham brand will welcome its second Colombian property, Tryp Bogotá, in the fourth quarter of 2011 and will introduce its first location in North America with the summer 2011 opening of the 173-room Tryp New York City Times Square South.
