So the great thing about Wyndham is the location, ESPECIALLY if you have a car. Yes, I know this sounds counterintuitive so let me explain. Almost everything one might want to do during the day in Newport, away from Thames St., will have parking available for free. However, parking on or around Thames St. can be a challenge or cost a good sum of money and you will likely want to visit Thames St. for dinner/drinks at least one night, if not multiple nights of your visit. The Wyndham is within walking distance of the resturants and shops on Thames St. so it was great to just come back to the hotel, park and walk to dinner (or wherever). Also, you self park at Wyndham, which I prefer, because hotels with off site garages and valet parking can be a hassle and time-consuming if you plan on coming and going. The Wyndham does have some double parking spots, for which you have to leave your keys with the front desk, but if you are visiting during a less busy time you shouldn't have to worry about this (I didn't).
Ok but what about the hotel, right? Well, the staff was friendly and the room was clean but you don't want to stay here if you want/expect plush accomodations. The hotel is dated as other reviewers have mentioned. The beds are also hard as a rock which is a big negative for me since I have a bad back. I think we might have been charged extra for asking for extra towell's our second day. They do not replenish any of your supplies. Overall, this wasn't the most comfortable of accomodations but I think the location made up for any inconvenience had.
