My first stay at Wyndham Harbour Lights did not disappoint. The location is phenomenal; in the heart of everything that is the Gas Lamp District. I have never seen non-stop revelers outside of Las Vegas. The weekend brought action from Friday thru Monday.
I was prepared in advance for the studio unit with a king-sized bed; small by typical Wyndham properties standards. However, the unit is quite spacious with a well-equipped kitchenette. The bathroom was huge with ample lighting. Odd layout, however. The kitchenette was at the foot of the bed whilst the television was in the sitting area by the Juliet balcony. It seems more logical to put the kitchenette nearer the living area; I don’t think anyone would really want to share the sleeping area with the kitchen. Last logistical difficulty, the full-length mirror was on the side of the bed as opposed to in the hallway. Did any of this hinder my stay? Absolutely not, but I could not avoid mentioning it.
When entering and exiting the property, we were consistently greeted by Wyndham staff members, who smiled and made direct eye contact. I definitely felt welcomed and appreciated.
Security was present in the evening upon our return to the property. I do not know if that’s the standard throughout the week as well or only on the weekends. Considering how much foot traffic there was in the area, it was comforting to know that we were safer with more than just locks on the door. The elevators also require a keycard for access, which is nice.
The units do not have washers and dryers; however, complimentary use is available in the lower level along with the well-equipped exercise room.
I was asked to participate in the resort update. I declined and Sierra was a little insistent. I declined a little more firmly and she backed off. The next day I did receive a telephone call with another request from a staff member. Declined again, no further contact. I would’ve liked the initial refusal to be enough, but no harm done to my vacation.
I will return to Wyndham Harbour Lights on future trips to San Diego, as the location and comfort level are great selling points. High five.
