Business has had me spending a couple nights per week in Irvine for the past couple months. I ended up staying at the Wyndham on this particular trip as my regular hotel was sold out. I have stayed at Wyndham hotels before and they typically are nice properties so I thought I had an idea as to what to expect. Overall, though, this place was less than impressive.
First of all, you get dinged with $15 per night for self parking. Guys, this is Irvine, not downtown LA. And for this $15, you get a sketchy parking garage and some surface parking in the back of the hotel.
Check-in was fine - staff at the front desk was polite enough. That said, all other staff in the hotel were fairly unfriendly. This surprised me - most hotels I've stayed at have pleasant employees who greet you with a smile and say hello - definitely didn't get this here. But maybe it was a bad day, so won't judge.
The room was also okay - bed was fine, bathroom is in a bit of an awkward place, but nothing alarming. Thin walls - you hear everybody walking down the halls and discussions outside the room (which incidentally provided me some entertainment).
The TV setup is "retro" - the Lodgenet system is still in effect on the old-school tube TVs. Been a while since I've seen this, but hey, at least I can check out on the TV, right? Nope, that didn't work.
In summary, it was ok I suppose, but for the price paid and what I got, I'll look elsewhere next time my regular hotel is sold out.
