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 …
... a bus tour of nasa and the launch pads, this was amazing to see- they have the tallest (53 stories ) single level building in the World which houses the rockets/shuttles. They also told us that NASA is currently working on the next space mission and they do launches at least once a month. We then headed to an exhibition which included a simulation of the control room, a life size rocket and a moon rock that we got to touch. Next we headed to the Atlantis ...
... to get us on some sort of breakfast tour of the property. The lure was a meager 30% or so off Seaworld tickets...no way buddy. In fact you could not even get me with free Seaworld tickets.
Chris hit the gym and I hit the pillow for a nap. Later we went to Bonefish grill for dinner. Chris has decided to lay off the beers for a week or so and I'm not feeling great so that is about $20 saved on drinks already. Now which park to do tomorrow.....
... lines, such as the Disney Cruise Line, have seen the marketplace capacity and set out to record the cruising market of Florida. Similarly the existing cruise lines have actually found to do each various other with an increasing number of ships (and option) frequently being contributed to the Florida navigating market. If you have never been cruising before, Florida cruising is the ideal method to take a ...
... You get smacked for having your elbows on teh table and you are treated like relatives by staff! We are the envy of all the kids as we have ice cream sundaes and parfaits for this "meal".
Linner is in a simulated Drive in Theatre where everyone sits in 1956 and 57 replica chevy convertables and watches old movies.. this is WAY COOL! We have fantastic burgers and hot dogs!

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.
