“How the 1% Travels”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

My room was enormous - 15'x18' - and elegant. Bed plushly wrapped in fine linens. A loveseat and an armchair grouped around a low table - perfect for relaxing. And the bath! A huge 12'x15' expanse of marble and tile accented with dark wood. The shower easily held two. A deep soaking tub the perfect place to pamper myself after a long run. This is the sort of room I can't afford in other cities - nice to find it here at a bargain price!

no coffee between 12pm-5pm?
i can't get a pillow "after housekeeping leaves" after 8pm?
no soap in the bathroom when i arrive?
a freezing pool that is useless?

i know this is florida, but really? i would have expected a little better from the "best place around" according to others.

Very clean, well appointed rooms. Odd on-line reservation system which according to desk clerk is only accessible by the General Manager, who was not on premises when I checked in, requiring me to go thru the entire registration process in person. Very annoying. Parking is limited on weekends due to competing nearby venues. Great bar/pool on roof top which offers a spectacular view of Charlotte Harbor.

Room Tip: Harbor view would be most desirable. Avoid the south side which faces an outdoor bar/restaurant wit...

This is a beautiful property with a great rooftop lounge to take in the Charlotte Harbor sky!

The rooms are flawless and are fitted out with details that usually are seen only in more expensive surroundings. Great beds and swank linens! Staff was very welcoming and sweet.

The only minor nit to pick is the noise should there be live music on the roof. If there is an "orchestra" playing and you don't wish to be at the party, try to find a room on the lower floors!

Room Tip: Rooms on the lower floors are more restful if the music on the roof doesn't suit your tastes.

We stayed here on several occasions while researching the purchase of our seasonal home in Punta Gorda, Florida. The rooms were all very nicely appointed with good linens and lots of granite and gleaming surfaces in the en suite bathroom. Higher level rooms on the north side have the best views of Charlotte Habour. Although some reviewers have complained of noise when there is live entertainment on the rooftop, we did not experience any problems during our stays. The views of the harbour are enjoyable from the rooftop terrace although the configuration of the hotel building (higher on the west side) blocks the view of the sun as it sets over the water. Lulu's restaurant on the ground level was a pleasant change from the usual hotel fare and the same kitchen offers a more limited menu on the rooftop terrace.
There is ample public parking across the road at Laishley Marina and valet parking is also offered at The Wyvern. The hotel is also one of the pick up/drop off locations for the free bicycle rental program operated by Punta Gorda: a pleasant way to tour the adjacent downtown and the bike paths throughout the harbour area.
We did purchase a home in Punta Gorda and now return regularly to The Wyvern for meals or drinks when we entertain family or friends visiting from Canada or overseas or when we feel like a night out.

Room Tip: North side rooms on the higher floors have the best views

My Mom & I lucked upon this hotel when we were booking a room for the Cinderella ballet at the Convention Center. It was easy to find and when we arrived they hadn't taken down the Christmas decor yet; so, it was very warm & welcoming in the lobby after an 8 hour drive. The staff was very friendly and helped make the check in process smooth. The room was immaculate and very clean with a nice view. We only stayed a couple of nights; so, we didn't get to use all the facilities, but the building itself was very lovely. The location was so close to where we had to go for the ballet that we walked there & the weather was great! I would definitely stay here/ recommend this place to everyone. My Mom is even asking if they have a Wyvern in Jacksonville for our trip later this month!

It's not often we stay at a non-Marriott hotel, but the Wyvern came highly recommended and the Wyvern was closest to where we needed to be. What a fabulous place. Easy and friendly check-in, lovely room, walking distance to shops and restaurants, cool roof-top bar. And then we climbed into bed - oh, the sheets! It was one of the better night's sleep I've had in a hotel.

We only stayed a night, but would definitely come back. Only oddity was that the restaurant didn't open for breakfast until 8:00 am, but they served us quickly when we said we were on a tight timeline and the food was good and not overpriced. Highly recommended!
