I wanted to stay in a central location to do a bit of sightseeing in the morning before my flight, after a week of work nearby. Wyndham was a compromise of location and price, and location was spot on.
I arrive around 6pm on a Thursday and was checked in quickly. The parking garage is next door but isn't actually attached, so it's good to unload the car and then park it. There are, however, elevators in the garage so it's no big deal. Parking is $36/nt with tax, which is par for the course in this area from what I found.
The room itself was basic - a small bathroom, comfortable bed, decent TV. WiFi was free but I never used it. The a/c was loud, and the walls/doors were kinda thin. The whole hotel, aesthetics wise, is definitely due for an update. My room had a view of a brick wall, so that's not ideal by any means.
Location is perfect - within a few blocks of bars/restaurants, and historic sites like no other.
Would stay again for the location, but the hotel itself isn't anything special. Service is, however, very friendly.
