Friends Getaway

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by a traveler from on March 18, 2009

Stayed in a 3-bedroom Presidential Suite with 3 full baths, master with separate garden tub and shower; absolutely impeccable. Staff bent over backward to be helpful, friendly and polite. One concierge was a little snooty and not all that helpful with information on how to obtain discount show tickets. WiFi available for $30.00 per week (very reasonable), daily rates available also. Beautiful view of the MGM Grand and airport from Tower III, 15th floor. Three heated pools and 4 jacuzzis, 2 very large pools and one smaller pool with the largest pool reserved for 18 and older. Well equipped gym facility available at no extra cost. Personnel in Activities were all great with wonderfully laid out binders describing all of the various shows and attractions on the Strip. We relied heavily on their advice and were not disappointed. Rentals are not necessary, as shuttles are readily available from the Wyndham to Harrah's. A 24-hour pass on The Deuce (bus) will get you up and down ""The Strip"" without having to worry about parking your rental which is a hassle. Small fast food restaurant available on site as well as a nice bar. Why stay at a hotel when you can stay at a condo for about the same price. The Wyndham Grand Desert is far enough away from ""The Strip"" to not have to worry about the ambient noises of the traffic and partying, but close enough to catch the free shuttle and be in the thick of ""The Strip"" in 15 minutes. Best of both worlds.
