Very nice property; maintained grounds, clean rooms and common areas. The rooms are decent sized with a desk. Bathroom is a good size with a hair dryer. The room also includes an iron and full size ironing board. Complimentary USA Today delivered to your door.

There is an adequate "gym" with 3 treadmills, 2 cycles, 1 eliptical (sp?) machine. A universal machine that covers all muscle groups. It's a small room, but manageable. There is also an outdoor pool which gets plenty of sun in the late afternoon, and there is an indoor jacuzzi and steam room.

There is a full service restaurant and bar with a large lounge area just off the lobby. There's only one restaurant within walking distance, so you will have to get in the car if you want to go someplace else. There are alot of places to eat within 5 miles of the hotel. The hotel does offer shuttle service to/from the airport, and they may shuttle to the restaurants too, but I'm not sure.

There are train tracks just behind the hotel, but it's surprisingly quiet the few times I did hear a train go by. I didn't hear any trains after 10:00pm, and I was awake until about midnight.

According to the hotel, they will have complimentary high speed internet access in October, 2003. For now, they have a "business center" with a computer connected to the internet and a laser printer. They don't have open ports though to hook a laptop up to.

I forgot to include they have a good selection of Cable TV stations. Court TV, A&E, Showtime 1 & 2, Starz, CNBC, CNN, HNN, TBS, TNN, etc...

Hope this helps!

Very nice hotel. In Business Park area. Room was very comfortable and very quiet. They do have shuttle to airport. Breakfast buffet is 9.95 and pretty good but there is some fast food places up the road. Coffee in room and in lobby in morning. Good price of $36 per night.

8-10-06 Thursday; Priceline bids of $40 and $45 rejected; accepted $50.00 plus taxes/fees total of $64.13. For a Thursday night the AARP rate was $79 plus tax - so saved at least $25 but some other nights of the week are much higher. Very adequate - extremely comfortable bed and pillows. Train behind hotel did not bother us. In the past have gotten the Doubletree ( really nice) and the Hilton Garden Inn (perhaps a little nicer than the Wyndham). But that bed at the Wyndam was on par with any.

Bid $45,$58.69 with tax and fees. Last stayed here in 2006 - very comfortable bed. Room not huge but with a queen bed, well configured with a small sofa, coffee table and desk. Clean.
Quiet but occupancy was low that night. Staff seemed to appreciate our business even though we (and others) were Priceline.
They now have the single serve coffee maker - leave 2 reg and 1 decaf - not enough real coffee for us in the morning.
They also have 32" LCD flat panel tv's but cable reception was mediocre and did not seem to be anything in HD.
We did not use the restaurant - after paying $6 each for coffee and a bagel at a Marriott once we usually carry our own "continental" breakfast in a small cooler.
I highly recommend the Hostess Cinnamon Streusel Cakes - individually wrapped. $3.99/8 reg but about $3 at Target or Walmart.
Very convenient just off I-40 at exit 281. That big shopping center with many retaurants is at Exit 276 - 5 miles to the West.
