This former Wingate has been given a complete and beautiful make-over. Lobby was inviting, reception was pleasant and quick, colors and furnishings throughout were bright and modern. Pool looked inviting and meeting rooms were sizable.
Our room was lovely, perfectly clean, and quiet, and an excellent example of a well-planned remodel. It also had a nice micro-fridge area, oversized closet with safe, flat-screen tv with many channels, plenty of vanity space in the bathroom. Water pressure was fine. Wifi worked well enough for light gaming. A/C functioned well (wall thermostat). The views from the rooms aren't exactly stellar (highway and parking lot - or - parking lot and Home Depot space), but we did not care as our days were not spent inside the room. (Would recommend requesting a room non-highway-side for assured quiet.)
This HI had been open (after the remodel) only a month prior to our stay; there are a couple glitches to be worked out (one of the room phones did not function, we had a bit of trouble initially logging into the wifi, it took forever to get cold water from the sink faucet). But these glitches were minor, particularly when considering the exceptional service provided to solve the phone and wifi issues (reception host actually came up to the room within 5 minutes of reporting) as well as the friendliness and can-do attitude of every single employee encountered.
As this is a full service HI, the restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner (don't know about lunch... ). It is no less than sparkling, visible yet apart from the lobby, with an abundance of glass, bright colors, and natural lighting. Several flat-screens are embedded in the walls. We enjoyed breakfast one morning; it was excellent, with prices in keeping with a hotel restaurant. Our server was super friendly and thoughtful.
This is just a couple miles from Vicksburg National Military Park, downtown Vicksburg, outlets, chain and local restaurants. A Mexican restaurant, with appealing decor and good food, is conveniently next door.
We would certainly stay here again.
