Wyndham Garden Chinatown on Bowery to Open in March

Posted on: January 5th, 2012 at 6:43 am by

The Wyndam Garden Chinatown (wind-uhm) – noun. A sixteen-story hotel currently in progress at the corner of Bowery and Hester Street. It has 106 rooms and is still seeking three separate liquor licenses.

Example: The Wyndham Garden has been in the works for four years, and caused the destabilization and ultimate razing of 128 Hester Street.

Roughly four years after ground first broke here at 93 Bowery, the final stage of development is underway. That of marketing the behemoth inn. Even though this proverbial sore thumb in the Lower East Side skyline still has some work to do (it’s not fully glassed or “balconized” yet), brochures promoting the newcomer are already being distributed to the public (see below).  We are told by company brass that March is now targeted as the official opening period, with a “pre-opening” sometime this winter.  Yup, all pretty vague.  We’ll keep you apprised…

In the meantime, we also obtained the following sterile PR babble.

The new Wyndham Garden Chinatown New York hotel is located downtown in one of New York’s trendiest neighborhoods, Chinatown. This Wyndham Garden hotel is within walking distance to some of the finest shopping, luxury boutiques, award winning restaurants, hip night life and much more. The Wyndham Garden Chinatown New York hotel is steps away from Soho, LES, Tribeca and minutes from Little Italy. The Wyndham Garden Chinatown New York hotel is designed perfectly for business and leisure guests and offers an array of amenities to ensure our guests’ stay in the big city is affordable, fun and hassle free.

It’s not really steps from Tribeca.  And since when did Chinatown become one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Manhattan?
