You don't have to own a timeshare to stay at one. That's the case at the Wyndham Desert Blue.
Located on Twain Avenue, only a couple of blocks east of the Las Vegas Strip and a couple of blocks north of the Rio Hotel and Casino, this nonsmoking property offers apartment-style suites choosing between a studio or one bedroom, pull-out sofas, washer/dryer sets and some kitchen amenities. So basically it's like vacationing with all the comforts of your home.
Accommodations here are perfect for families and groups of friends because they're so spacious.
At the Wyndham Desert Blue there's no casino or nightclub (this also appeals to families). However, you'll find all the requisite getaway amenities: two heated swimming pools, two hot tubs, a fire pit and a fitness center.
You can also take advantage of complimentary transportation to the Rio (in case you don't feel like walking), and a concierge is on hand to help you with reservations or any other arrangements.
Food options at the Wyndham Desert Blue are limited to their one and only bar and grill. Don't worry, though, because you won't go hungry with numerous restaurants -- ranging from fast food to fine dining -- on the Strip.
There are a couple of things you should be aware of that are unique to timeshares. First off, you won't get daily maid service like you would at a hotel. The timeshare provides limited housekeeping services on the eighth day of stay. Those staying less than eight nights will not receive housekeeping service. However, trash removal and towels are provided upon request.
Also, don't be surprised if you're implored to listen to a pitch about the benefits of "vacation ownership resorts." As we said earlier, Wyndham Desert Blue is a timeshare.
If you're looking for a quiet, comfortable property suitable for all ages and not far from all the action Sin City is known for, the Wyndham Desert Blue makes for a very good place to stay.
