Wingate by Wyndham at Orlando International Airport
Travel Blogs from Orlando
Our last day in Florida was spent in the Holy Land theme park in Orlando. It is a recreation of various Biblical places. They offer live theatrical productions of various stories from the Bible. We saw the women at the well, story of David and Bathseba, Four ladies who love Jesus, the Last Supper. We also heard an excellent presentation on a …
... onsite at The Hard Rock which allowed us into the park 1 hour before the park opens. This is essential as when the gates open the crowd head in one direct! I had done my homework so had a plan - straight to olivander's for the wand ceremony. Only 30 people are allowed in at a time and we were in the first thirty. Later in the day the queue is enormous and in my opinion, really not worth it. However, fortunately for us, Ella was chosen as the only ...
We went off to Epcot today intending to welcome in the new year, but we did not envisage the other 40 thousand people that visited as well. Some of the theme parks closed to the public because there were too many people. It was almost claustrophobic. At 4 PM we got the heck out of there and are now sitting back at the resort trying ...
... The lines were great, we never waited more than 30 minutes which allowed us to go on our favourites over and over. We will say that we are glad to not have to go on the Buzz Lightyear ride anymore which is definitely both boys favorite.
We also built in some down days in between to go to both water parks, play mini golf, play a round of golf at Disney's 9 ...
Today was another unplanned day so we got to have a little sleep in again. I really wanted to do a swamp tour so we could see some alligators so that was on the agenda. We had breakfast at "iHop" which is a "Pancake Parlour" type place. I had crepes with cream cheese, strawberries and bananas. Stu had choc-chip pancakes with chocolate batter. Mine were very sweet and I only managed to eat one out of two. After looking at a thousand different swamp tour places in our guides we picked ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Wingate by Wyndham at Orlando International Airport
I booked the hotel over the internet, and boy was I positively surprised! For the money, this was the best bargan! Elegant rooms, all the amenities you could ask for. Very assistive staff. Easy airport access and located right next to the expressway to all the hot spots. Meals were within walking distance.
Excellent Hotel, Excellent Value
Stayed here on Priceline bid, free shuttle pick up was in about 15 minutes after calling, room was extremely clean and large, furniture looked new (remodelled?), even bed spreads seemed new. Microwave, fridge, coffee maker. Desk service was efficient, polite & friendly. Free breakfast had good selection. Will definitely stay here again.
Great value for the money
Nicely appointed hotel with all the amenities. If you put in an offer price of $45-50 on Priceline for a hotel near the Orlando Airport, you often can either get this hotel, the Holiday Inn Select Orlando Airport, or Sheraton Suites Orlando Airport. I've stayed at all of them, and you can't go wrong either way for the price and convenience.
Don't even think of sleeping in...
I was in line to check out of this hotel and decided to write my review before leaving the property. This is definitely not a three star hotel, but could possibly be a decent two star. The promised pool is tiny and in the shadiest corner of the building--why bother. Housekeeping insistently woke every guest at 8:00am, 8:40am, 9:am...you get it. Beds old, pillows flat, linens dingy...definintely not a three star property. Stick with Marriott, Hyatt, Sheraton Suites if you have to be near the airport.
My family and friends enjoyed this hotel tremendously! Check-in went wonderfully. We arrived early since we had just returned from a cruise and had no problems with check-in. The staff was very helpful.
Our only complaint is that we were only staying one night.
Will definitely stay here again when in Orlando.
Grand Opening of a very nice hotel
Spent one night at the Wingate between travelling in to Orlando from
the West Coast and getting on a cruise ship at Canaveral. Booked through Priceline and it was very inexpensive but a wonderful hotel.
Complementary shuttle arrived and returned us to the airport promptly, room was very comfortable, new decor, pleasant. Complementary breakfast buffet was outstanding. Also enjoyed the hot tub and fitness center.
The staff was friendly and made us feel welcome.
I would definitely stay here again and recommend it.
My husband and I stayed at the Wingate for 5 nights - Christmas Day until the 30th. I must say that we really enjoyed our stay! There are some pros and cons to staying at the Wingate, and they are listed below:
Hotel was pleasantly surprising...very clean, property seemed new. My infant daughter and I spent the night here on Sunday, November 7, 2004 by ourselves. The room was very big! Had a microwave, and refridgerator! There was even a heavy continental breakfast included (BONUS!) I was able to get juice and fresh fruit for my daughter, but there was also cereal, make your own waffles bar, and assorted pastries.
Stayed at this hotel because I had an early morning flight. Location is excellent, staff is friendly. Breakfast is good, room was clean. Only downside was that either the walls are quite thin, or my neighbors were quite loud - probably a combination of the two. Would stay again.
