It is an elegant Gothic and Victorian building, which, from the outside, exposes a V-shaped building and several small windows, brick chimneys, and blue roofs. In the main building, there are two cupular and a clock tower.
The interior of the building is made up of a single floor, where an elegant hall with several columns with golden details, two waiting rooms with fine furniture and several floral arrangements is shown. The elevators show a golden Art Deco design.
Above the main building of the hotel, stands a huge clock tower, which exposes a stellar clock with several rings and bright stars that rotate counterclockwise. This clock is visible in various parts of the city.
The hotel is named after Roselia, which is present in a mosaic of the main hall.
Wyndon first appeared in Settling the Scorbunny!, when Ash and Goh arrived in the Galar region. Whilst waiting around for the next train to the Wild Area, they encountered a Scorbunny and a trio of Nickit, who stole Ash's backpack. The Nickit later carried Scorbunny to the train Ash and Goh took, urging it to follow them.
In the next episode, Ash and Goh battled Drednaw, but due to its giant size, their attacks didn't have any effect on it. Pikachu was then exposed to Dynamax energy leaking out of the ground, causing him to Gigantamax as well. Using Leon's advice, Ash was able to defeat Drednaw. The next day, Leon agreed to battle Ash at the stadium, giving him a Dynamax Band of his own. Although Ash's Gigantamax Pikachu was able to inflict some damage onto Charizard, he was still defeated. After the battle, Leon and Ash agreed to face each other again at the stadium once Ash became stronger.
In Toughing It Out!, Ash and Goh traveled to Galar again to watch Leon's World Coronation Series battle against Raihan. After Leon successfully defended his Monarch title, Ash and Goh met Sonia, who told them about the Darkest Day. Later, Ash and Goh heard of a strong Pokémon, which turned out to be a Galarian Farfetch'd. Goh tried to catch it but was unsuccessful. Following this, Ash started to battle Farfetch'd with his Riolu, eventually emerging victorious. After Farfetch'd was healed at the Pokémon Center, Ash asked it if it wanted to join his team, and it agreed.
In the following episode, Ash and Goh encountered a Sobble, which Goh caught on accident. He soon sent it out to battle a Silicobra that he wanted to catch, but Sobble became too frightened in the middle of the battle and ran away. Ash and Goh ended up chasing after Sobble to the outskirts of Wyndon, where they ended up having to save it from Team Rocket, with Goh earning Sobble's trust in the process.
In Sword and Shield: The Darkest Day!, Chairman Rose invited Ash to dine with him at Rose Tower. As they ate, Rose told Ash about his vision of Galar's future and offered to support Ash's career as a Trainer. Ash, however, declined the offer, wanting to forge his own path. After spending a night at the Tower, Ash left it the next day to meet up with Goh.
In The Spectral Express!, Ash and Goh arrived at Wyndon by train on their way to Stow-on-Side. They accidentally ran into Allister and followed him to a mysterious underground platform while trying to return a ticket he dropped, and boarded a ghost train bound for Stow-on-Side.
In Battling Turned Up to Eleven!, Ash was designated to have a World Coronation Series match with Marnie at Wyndon Stadium. Although Team Yell initially fooled Ash into going to Spikemuth instead, Piers managed to take him to the stadium in time. While the battle between Ash's Gengar and Marnie's Grimmsnarl eventually ended in Ash's victory, Marnie's battle skills still impressed the audience and thus provided help in revitalizing her dilapidated hometown.
In JN100, following Ash's battle with Marnie, he and Goh planned to go looking for Pokémon in the Wild Area together, but due to Ash oversleeping, Goh headed for the Motostoke Riverbank without him. After waking up, Ash intended to follow after him, but when he heard that Leon was having a battle at Wyndon Stadium, he couldn't resist going to watch it instead. After witnessing Leon's victory over Flint, Ash met up with Leon and was invited to join him for some training, which he happily agreed to. In the evening, Ash and Leon returned to Wyndon and reunited with Goh and Sonia.
Wyndon reappeared more prominently in PASS25. Upon learning of Chairman Rose's plan to bring about the Darkest Day, most of the Galar Gym Leaders, Henry, Casey, Hop, Marnie, and Bede traveled to Wyndon to learn if what they had heard was true. They first went to Rose Tower, where they were confronted by Oleana, who told them that Rose wasn't there. The Gym Leaders battled Oleana while the others headed to the top floor via elevator, only to find out that Rose indeed wasn't there, although he did contact them through a screen from the Hammerlocke StadiumEnergy Plant. Due to the unforeseen turn of events, he announced that he would start the Darkest Day immediately, instead of waiting for the Champion Cup before doing so, like he had originally planned. As a result, Power Spots across Galar began to react and numerous Pokémon started to Dynamax involuntarily across the region, prompting Henry and Casey to head to Hammerlocke to stop Rose.
While the Darkest Day was active, Macro Cosmos observed the event from Rose Tower.Following the disappearance of Eternatus, Henry, the Rusted Sword, and the Rusted Shield, Casey was given permission to use Macro Cosmos's supercomputer at Rose Tower to figure out where the artifacts had wound up at. She quickly tracked them down to the Isle of Armor and the Crown Tundra, though she couldn't tell which of them was in which location, or which of them Henry had wound up at.
