... following me round like I was going to give him something or something, but reached the Ruta De Flores, which far exceeded my expectations – then again how can a 7 Waterfall Tour and a Gastronomical Festival be bad? Went to El Impossible national park which was actually impossible to reach the first time, but was worth it as jumped down about 9 waterfalls and swam through a canyon from the top layer, right to the base – the walk back up was slightly less ...
... For example, before we left I bought John a new rashie, I could buy the self same rashie here for $20 less, what's even more mind boggling than that is that it is a Billabong rashie, explain that to me if you can!
Shoes are always a good buy here, runners are on average $50 per pair less than in Perth. Scetchers Go Walks, quite possibly the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned, I priced them up in the sports shop close to where I work just before we ...

After all that fun we headed off to the supermarket to stock up our now functioning fridge. In the evening we cooked ourselves up some chili and curled up to watch the Golden Globes. I have found that if you spend long enough in our hotel room you get use to the smell. The trick is to never leave.
... I had mac n cheese for dinner then a root beer float for dessert (was good and tastes nothing like beer...even better)! Megan came to collect me after work which was about 11.30pm and when we got back Megan went to bed and I watched yet another Christmas movie from the comfort of my sleeping bag!
Another chilled out morning then off for brunch again before Megan started work. We went to an all you can eat buffet, there were salads, pizzas, ...

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.
