Our Fabulous Stay At The Wyndham San Diego Bayside For Comic Con 2015!


Hey All!

We’ve been going to San Diego Comic Con for over 7 years now. Yes, it feels like we’ve been going all our lives at this point. We’ve stayed in our fair share of hotels during Comic Con, but none have ever been as amazing as the Wyndham San Diego Bayside. The service and VIP treatment we received was incredible. It was truly one of the most fabulous times I’ve ever had in a hotel. I’ve never been more thankful to be a Wyndham Rewards member in my life! I was so thankful that I had connected with Wyndham Resorts before our stay to let them know we booked our stay at their fabulous hotel for Comic Con. Knowing this they went above and beyond to make our stay a truly fantastic experience. When you’re moving at a mile a minute during Comic Con, you really don’t want to have to worry about the experience you’re having at the hotel you are staying in. You want a place you can feel safe and comfortable in after a long day, and the Wyndham San Diego Bayside was that and more!


The hotel is located right along the San Diego bay at a premiere location moments away from Little Italy, the San Diego Cruise Ship Terminal and the San Diego Convention Center. It was perfect for us as we could literally walk to Comic Con if we needed to. It’s about 1.5 miles from the convention center. The Wyndham San Diego Bayside hotel is unsurpassed among downtown San Diego hotels!


When we got to the hotel and were about to check in, we immediately noticed there was a separate Wyndham Rewards Member check in section of the check in desk. How awesome is that?! Being a Rewards Member I didn’t have to wait in line and I just walked right up to the check in desk! That’s just one of the perks of being a Wyndham Rewards Member.


Wyndham Rewards also introduced a new loyalty program that flips the traditional rewards structure on its head and allows members to earn more and redeem faster at any of their 14 trusted hotel brands from Super 8 to Wyndham Grand. They’ve also introduced “The Wyndham Rewards Wyzard”, a character committed to bringing rewards to those who earn it. You can see him in the picture above and just like the picture says with this new Wyndham Rewards program you can:

  • ‘Go Free’: 15,000 points gets you a free night at any Wydham Rewards hotel.
  • ‘Go Fast’: Get a night for 3,000 points plus some cash.
  • ‘Go Get ‘Em’: Every qualified stay, earn 10 points per dollar, or 1,000 points. Whichever is more.

It’s truly one of the best hotel rewards programs I’ve ever joined. I’m not just saying this. We paid for our entire visit out of pocket and we weren’t provided a comped hotel stay or anything. We were solely given some rewards points and a comped mini fridge for our stay. We’re honestly sharing our experience at the hotel and the info about the rewards program because we love the program. We also had such an amazing experience at their hotel for Comic Con. I digress…

When we checked in we were greeted by the manager of the hotel and a lovely woman at the desk, who helped get us checked in. We were even given the cell phone number of the manager in case we needed anything. What the what! I know! Never in my life have I been checked into a hotel with such VIP treatment. We were thrilled by how amazing our check in experience had been. We were given our Comic Con themed keys and headed up to our room on the 14th floor of Tower 2 at the hotel.


The room was (for a lack of better description) very Brite & Bubbly. It had me written all over it!


I was beyond ecstatic to see this special balloon surprise waiting for me in the corner of the room.


There was a fabulous San Diego gift bag and balloons that said “Welcome Vanessa” on them! This hotel truly knew the way to my heart when they know to put balloons in my room. There was even two little bottles of Dasani Drops to flavor our water with! AMAZING!


What was beyond the point of amazing, was this welcome plaque that had a welcome and the Brite & Bubbly logo on it! I seriously almost cried when I saw it, because I was that happy. It truly showcased how much the Wyndham truly cared about having us stay at their hotel. No other hotel that I’ve ever reviewed (and I’ve reviewed a ton) or even stayed at has ever showcased this much care or attention to detail. It was truly the best experience I’ve ever had just walking into my hotel room for the first time. You can see a little glimpse of the sitting area on the balcony to our room in the picture below as well.


Let me not forget to mention the little adorable monster pillow on the bed. I wanted to take him home, but I wasn’t sure if we could, so we left him behind when we checked out.


The Wyndham Rewards Wyzard truly sprinkled his magic all over this room. Magic Mike who indeed!


The bathroom even screamed Brite & Bubbly with the vibrant colored bath mats and towels.


I’ve never been more excited for towels in my life! Two words people…RAINBOW TOWELS!


They even had electric pink wash cloths to match. It’s like they researched me and put all my favorite things inside this room!


They have an abundance of services and amenities make your stay at the Wyndham San Diego Bayside hotel a truly memorable experience. The complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access was a god send.  This fantastic hotel also features an outdoor heated pool and poolside gym. They have 600 newly enhanced guest rooms and suites at this hotel to provide a peaceful escape from the vibrant city outside. The updated spaces feature a modern and inviting design complemented by contemporary furnishings.  Floor-to-ceiling windows assist in making our guests make the most of this waterfront location. All guest rooms and suites provide breathtaking views along with private balconies.  All rooms include an amazing flat screen tv, coffee maker, hairdryer and large work desk.


The views from the balcony were also spectacular!


We thought the stay couldn’t get any better, but we were wrong! While I was camped out on the streets waiting in line over night to get into the Star Wars panel, my husband came back to the room to drop some stuff off. Inside he found another surprise waiting for us! There was a tray on the desk with this amazing Captain America Donut from the famed Donut Bar donut shop, some Fiji Waters, and a jar of Smarties candies in our room. Sorry for the bad picture, but my husband took it with his bad cell phone. It’s the only photo I had to use, but I couldn’t help but want to share how awesome this was.


On the jar of candy was this lovely note from the Wyndham Wyzard! He truly knows the way to my heart! Donuts and Candy will do the trick every time! Especially when it’s a donut from Donut Bar! That is one epic surprise in my book!


I could go on and on about how amazing this hotel stay was, but I’ll just say this…

When you’re standing or camped out in lines like this for sometimes days on end, you want an amazing hotel to come back to and relax in.


When you spend your nights dancing with Left Shark…


And having epic experience like a live Star Wars Symphony Concert complete with 7,000 waving light sabers, you want a hotel you can come back to and know they truly want your stay to be as incredible as the experiences you are having at Comic Con.


The Wyndham San Diego Bayside truly was that hotel and then some.  We can’t thank them enough for the most fabulous experience we’ve ever had with a hotel for Comic Con. We’re hoping we get lucky enough to have the opportunity to stay there from now on during Comic Con!

You’ll be happy you did I promise!
