On May 11, 2011, we took a group of Pine Valley Methodist Church senior citizens, from Wilmington, NC, to visit the Billy Graham Library. Sight unseen, we selected the Wingate by Wyndham, which advertises itself as the closest hotel to the Library.
Working with the hotel Sales Manager, Dottie Hammond, we made the arrangements for our group to use the hotel. There is always some concern when making arrangememts for a group of seniors, but this time everything worked out fine. Beginning with front desk clerk, LaShandra, ever detail of our stay was perfect.
Each person was responsible for making their reservationis, and not one single reservation had a problem. Every reservation was just as the group members had made them, and, as a result, check-in was smooth and efficient.
The hotel staff was able to make suggestions for dinner, complete with very accurate directions.
Rooms were large, modern, very clean, and came equipped with TV, microwave, refrigerator, and free high speed internat connections.
Beds were very comfortable and the rooms were exceptionally quiet, inspite of the hotel being under the flightpath for Charlotte Douglas Airport.
A small, but adequate fitness center, with a hot tub, is available.
An extended continental breakfast is available, with eggs, sausage, cook-your-own waffles, various cereals, fruit, sweet rolls, bread for toast, english muffins, and bagels.
Hotel staff made sure that adequate food was available right up to the end of breakfast time.
If we bring a group back to Charlotte again, and plan to be in this area of the city especially the Billy Graham Library, we will definitely plan to return to the Wingate by Wyndham.
