My husband and I had to travel to the Port Charlotte area to handle some financial matters for an elderly family member. Our days were spent chasing around to meetings, moving furniture, and going through mountains of paperwork. I decided that since our days were going to be spent in a most un-vacation like way, that at least our evenings could feel more like a getaway. So I looked for a place to stay that was a bit more unusual than a Marriot or Sheraton. I was happy to find a brand-new boutique hotel just 10 minutes away from where our relative lived!
The Wyvern is sparkling and new and lived up to the promises on its website. The rooms are lovely and modern and clean. The rooftop bar as well as the Mexican Cantina next door to the hotel are fairly lively in the evenings, which would have been great had we not been so exhausted at the end of the day. As it was, even the live music from the cantina wound down around 10 p.m. and didn't disturb us in the least. Only hotel guests have access to the room floors (rooftop bar guests can only take the elevator to the roof) so while we did encounter some revelers in the elevator, the room floors were always very quiet. We also enjoyed a very delicious dinner in the hotel restaurant, as well as nearby Spazzi.
There are definitely some kinks left to be worked out...when we got to our room very late the first night we found that we had no toilet paper in our bathroom! The parking lot also tended to be filled to occupancy in the evenings when the bar was in full swing. However, these are small issues and if/when I have to visit this area again, this is where I will choose to stay.
