We arrive late on a Thursday night not knowing what we getting ourselves into. But what a great place and location.

We came to Vegas to experience the Strip and relax. This is a perfect place to do it. Located two blocks from all the action, but close enough to get to, Grand Desert is the place.

The property from outside to the details in the rooms are all first class. NOT that I would expect anything else. And neither does Wyndham. The pools were great, the gym was perfect, room had a view of the strip. Can't say enough about this location.

We had a rental car, so we drove to one location/casino, walked around then moved the car or went back to the room to rest for the night time excursion. From the Wyndham you are close to everything but when you were at the resort you felt miles away.

Room Tip: Our room was in tower 2 in rooms 1050 to 1068 which was looking towards the strip. the inner Odd num...

Just got back from Las Vegas and the Wyndham Desert Resort. We rented a two bedroom condo for two nights and were so pleased to be able to entertain family that lived close to Vegas. There was a fully equiped kitchen complete with all accessories including a blender, full size coffee maker,toaster and even a pkg of microwave popcorn. The master bedroom had a huge wirlpool tub and shower and the second bathroom had a bathtub too. The condo was terrific for two visiting ladies that wanted their own spaces. And we had 4 people come to dinner at the 6 seat dining room table. Everything was neat and clean and very new looking. The beds were very comfortable (King in the master and 2 queens in the second bedroom) and the tower on the 6th floor was so-o quiet we got 2 wonderful nights sleep. They have a family and an adults pool and other great ammenities and it's very close to the MGM Grand and the strip. Parking was easy and convenient for us. They do have a shuttle that will take you to the strip. We would reccomend The Wyndham highly to friends that are looking for a condo to rent in Las Vegas. The rates were very affordable!

We went because we were offered a "free" three night stay. I write free because there is a catch. You have to listen to a 90 minute presentation. That sounded o.k. at the time. The reality of the 90 minute presentation is a super high pressure sales pitch one to a couple for the whole time. It was very unpleasant and put me off the Wyndham brand. The room was nice but not anything super special. It's location makes a rental car a necessity.

We have just returned from our visit to Las Vegas and I wanted to post about the Wyndham Grand Desert. There have been so many reviews, some negative, that I felt compelled to write. Our daughter wanted to turn 21 in Vegas (what kid doesn't) so we arranged a family birthday trip. We booked the 2BR, 2 BA at the Wundham Grand Desert. We arrived on Monday, April 21, 20014 right at 4:00. The room was ready when we arrived and check-in was hassle free. Of course, we were sent to the "other desk" to pick up our parking pass, where they wanted to sign us up for a breakfast presentation on purchasing a vacation rental, but my husband said no, we weren't interested and that was that. We were never approached again regarding the presentation. An hour after we checked in they called to make sure everything was to our satisfaction, and it was. We were on the 6th floor of tower one, with a partial view of the strip and a partial view of the adult only pool. The grounds were clean and very well kept. This is truly a beautiful, comfortable property. The staff were very friendly and always asked if our stay was going well. There was one day that my daughter and brother-in-law were going to meet us up the strip and couldn't get a shuttle (one driver was saying "take the other shuttle" and the other driver wasy saying, "No, get back on that one. I am going to pick people up". ) After going back and forth a few times, they decided to just go ahead and walk. The walk from the resort to the strip was 3 blocks and a very easy walk. The racks for the dishwasher didn't want to pull out or push in very well, nor did the trash container, but I would say they've seen alot of use. The beds were very conmfortable, the bathrooms and the rest of the condo very clean. If I get a chance to return, I certainly would stay here again. Thanks to the staff for a very enjoybale visit.

Had a wonderful time at the Grand Desert Resort. Check in was easy and quick. While waiting for our room since we got there about an hour early we sat by the pool and enjoyed free glasses of wine which they have tasting for on Friday and Saturdays. The one bedroom room we had was plenty big enough for a couple. It was a well furnished clean apartment. Our bed was extremely comfortable and the unit was very quiet. We parked every evening in the garage under the tower we were in. Didn't have to walk but just a few steps each time to get to the car. Although they had a little bistro by the pool it wasn't much more than a fast food service. The three pools were built in such a fashion that in the spring (early April) the sun didn't shine on them until about noon and was shadowed by the building by about 3 at the lower pool and 430 at the upper pool. The life guards weren't physically fit in most cases to have helped anyone and they weren't paying much attention to what was going on in the pools, especially at the adult relaxation pool. Many people put down towels early to save seats and that really limited seating. Many of them it appeared never even came down to the pool, so no one could use their seats. The bar at the adult pool was well equipped with a good selection of drinks including draft beer, however every day the bar tender closed it all up for about 2 hours each day right in the middle of the day. The location of the resort was perfect for getting to the Strip, a block and a half off it. It was on a road that allowed you to parallel it and get to your location without having to deal with the heavy traffic on the strip. We attended the free breakfast and update on Wyndham programs on our last day. We had to cut the salesman short several times so we could get to the airport on time. They provided us with a $125 gift card for our time. There was no service for cleaning the room each day, but fresh linens were available at any time.

Room Tip: Tower II is by the adult relaxation pool and has the garage under it.

We travelled to Vegas for 4 nights with our 3 year old. The accommodations were nice. It was good to have a kitchen to eat breakfast in. We found the bed mattress a little too much on the firm side and it made for not a restless nights sleep.

The pool was nice, good family pool. However was not too impressed with the lifeguard. She was taking money for saving seats with towels and all the seats were full with no one in them for hours. Not fair for other people trying to find seats.

For such a large hotel I was also surprised there was no "real restaurant" on site. The kids activities were very limited. Parking was challenging at times also.

In short I likely wouldn't stay here again. There are better options out there.

Room 488 in building 3....My family of four love our stay at Wyndham. The checkin was quick and pleasant. The elevator to hotel room was fast. The two bedrooms apartment was fantastic even though we did not use the kitchen at all. The entire place was very clean, very comfortable bed and pillows. I would recommend this place to friends and if I visit Las Vegas, I will stay at Wyndham except this time, I will make an effort to use their swimming pool and the big bath tub in the master bedroom.
Checkout was quick.
Their personal tried to make effort to give free breakfast in exchange for possible property selling but they are not pushy at all. They only do their job but it is completely up to you to make that decision

Room Tip: Just request it and they will provide as request!
