Stayed in a 1 Bedroom deluxe for 2 nights. This is the smallest unit available but it had plenty of room for 2 people. The units are well equipped with full kitchen appliances, pots, pans, cookware, plates.... There is a small basket with a welcome packet of popcorn, and some coffee for you to enjoy.
The location is not bad. It is along the river and the river walk is just outside the hotel,but not the entertainment part of the river walk. That is just a few blocks away (8-10 minute walk). The other Wyndham (riverside suites) is adjacent to the river walk in the heart of the entertainment part. You can save the walk and take the shuttle offered which runs about twice an hour up to 4:45 pm. After that, plan on walking. The shuttle will take you to the other wyndham, the mercado (mexican market), and the river city pointe (mall).
The units are roomy as stated by other reviews. Large bathtub, king size bed, sofa and chairs in the living room with a flat screen TV, DVD player, stereo. The washer and dryer were small but we used them for 2 loads (which is how much soap they gave you). The dryers were OK. They did not take that long to dry a load and were quiet enough to run while watching TV or sleeping.
Our unit was an odd numbered unit which meant we faced north. I think this is the preferred side of the building, unless you get the end units which face the river. You get a view of downtown but if you are on the lower floors, there is a building next door which might pose a problem. We too did hear the trash being picked up around 4:00 am but were able to go back to sleep. We did spend some time out on the balcony of the unit. The balconies are small! You can fit 2 people on them with the table and chairs furnished. But your knees are up against the railings of the balcony. Wish they had been a bit larger.
The parking is another problem with this hotel. There is some street side parking which is metered until 6:00 pm. The valet at the hotel costs $15 day with in and out privileges. They responded fairly quickly unless you get there or leave when several other couples are checking in or out. The most you would have to wait is 10 minutes. You can always jump on the computer in the lobby while waiting. There are 2 public computers to use and WIFI throughout the hotel.
The store/deli outside the hotel will allow you to pick up items to cook and eat or just enjoy a deli sandwich. They charge for the convienence but what did you expect? They are open until 8:00 pm you this is handy. So grab some beer or wine, head up to the 6th floor, and relax on the pool deck. You can use the hot tub or pool, see the river and downtown, and relax. Heck, you are on vacation... right?
Overall, as timeshare owners we expect them to try and arrange ownership reviews. We did not take any tours and were only asked once if we wanted a review. Take it or leave it. We did not feel hassled one way or the other.
I would recommend this hotel. A good staff which is responsive to your needs, rooms which are large and like being at home, and fun stuff like pools, hot tubs, pool tables and a small fitness room.
