I chose the Wyndham, having never stayed in any of their properties before. I did not have unreasonable expectations, but even these weren't met.
The first impressions are great. The lobby is beautiful, with Civil War era sitting areas and a cannon in the center. Getting to your room is where the problems start. It's like maze if you are in one of the side rooms, though still nice to look at.
The room is where you get underwhelmed. As others have mentioned, there is no fridge unless you request beforehand. Other family stayed at budget hotels nearby, and had this standard. They thought I got taken. Maybe I did. The coffee maker looks like a Civil War relic itself.
Luckily, I didn't spend much time in the room, or I would have gone blind looking at the small TV. Nowhere was there a list of stations in the room, so you constantly have to flip channel by channel to find what you are looking for.
Overall, this is a beautiful hotel on the first floor, but lacks things that are fairly standard in the rooms. If I come back to Gettysburg, I think I will stay elsewhere.
