I enjoyed my stay at the Wingate. While it's nowhere near Richmond's city center, there is still a great deal to do. It's about a 5 minute drive from Short Pump Town Center which has great choices in restaurants, shopping and entertainment.
The hotel is somewhat new, having been opened approximately 4 years (according to the Front Desk Clerk). The lobby is spacious and comfortable, with a large breakfast bar attached. The complimentary breakfast was great, consisting of eggs, bacon, waffles, breads, cereals, fruit and more. The fitness center was your standard hotel gym, the pool a bit small ranging from 3ft deep to 5ft deep.
The room was large! Two comfortable queen beds, a nice sized desk, a big bathroom and a plush chair . It was great. It was clean, nothing out of place. The decor was bright and modern. The TV was a flat screen swivel LCD. There was also a fridge and microwave as an extra bonus.
If you don't mind being far from downtown, then this is an excellent choice.
