Good location-nice room-staff could be better

Pros: Loved the beautiful rooms and features, the resort is quiet, the close proximity to the airport & strip, and the convenient free shuttle.
Cons: Hard sell tactic to timeshare presentation turned me off. Shuttles fill up at first stop, add'l pick up shuttles could be sent to subsequent stops.
Location: The Vegas strip is the main attraction.
Loved the room & features but staff not trained well: (1) did not like the very hard sell to attend the timeshare presentation (2) no directions given to our room, we wondered around & inadvertently ended up in the lobby again (3) did not like going through parking structure to access our elevators (4) could only get seat on the shuttle if we walked to the first stop (5) info on the return shuttle confusing, verbal info different from signage at the stop (6) was not informed of any of the available amenities.

Wonderful except for pushy timeshare sales people

Pros: Very family friendly despite being only 1-2 blocks from the Vegas strip. Gave us the best of both worlds.
Cons: Eliminate the high pressure timeshare sales pitch.
Location: Only 1-2 blocks from Vegas strip. Very easy to get to MGM, M&M store, and everything else.
We booked our room through Travelocity. The checkin process was rather slow but it went smoothly. After the checkin, they send you to another desk where you have to wait in another line to get the parking pass. That is where they start out friendly giving you details about Vegas and things to do. Then they start the timeshare push - offering a "free" breakfast where they will give you the tour of the building. We had ready about it on Travelocity so we were prepared. Unfortunately, it took at least 5 firm "no"'s before they finally got the hint we weren't changing our mind. Prior to that, they kept pushing harder with multiple people trying to convince us to attend the breakfast. Needless to say, it does not give a good first impression of the Wyndham. I can only imagine how high pressure they would be at the "free" breakfast. After we finally made it through that annoying process, we were very pleased with our room and the facility. We went with our 3 teenagers so we loved the 2BR suite. It gave us the room to spread out. The pool in our tower was nice and family friendly. The building was 1-2 blocks from the main strip so close enough to walk to most things. If they would eliminate the timeshare pressure, we would definitely give it 5 stars overall.

Home away from home

Pros: clean, quiet and comfortable
Location: right off the strip, no casino noise, very walkable to the strip
We stay here every time. We know it is always going to be clean and quiet. Staff is very courteous and attentive. If there are any issues they are very quickly addressed. Will definitely return!

PERFECT Location and Quiet Elegance

For those who want to be close to, but not on the Strip, have easy access to the Strip, and definitely want "their space," this is where you want to stay. VERY attentive staff, clean, spacious, luxurious and well-equipped rooms, and NICE AND QUIET at night. Perfect location also for a variety of Vegas experiences.

Friends Getaway

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.

Loved It!

Great place to stay. Room was clean and tidy. Nice and quite... off ""The Strip"". Liked having the washer and dryer because we stayed for the full week. Exciting Vegas trip while still being able to rest and feel the resort experience.

Value, view and class

Been to Vegas a bunch, first time I've had an apartment with a view of the strip. Spotless, secure, swanky, friendly, uncrowded, great bed, will seek it out again. Hot hot tub!
