The hotel becomes the second in the country to join the select-service brand's portfolio, following the June 2011 opening of its first Colombian property in Medellín.

"South America is an integral part of our growth strategies for both Wyndham Hotel Group and the TRYP by Wyndham brand," said Daniel del Olmo, Wyndham Hotel Group's managing director of Latin America and brand senior vice president of TRYP by Wyndham. "Bogotá is one of the fastest growing cosmopolitan cities on the continent and we're thrilled to bring TRYP by Wyndham to this great city."
"While our hotel offerings and its ideal location will provide guests with a great choice when visiting Bogotá, our customer-centric 'Own the City' brand culture truly sets us apart," he continued. "Like other TRYP by Wyndham properties around the world, our ambassadors in Bogotá are passionate about the city, passionate about guests and will do anything they can to help guests make the most of their visit."
