In a remote area near Charlotte Douglas International Airport
The Wingate by Wyndham Charlotte Airport is just as advertised, located minutes away from Charlotte Douglas Airport in Pawtuckett. The area is home to little more other than gas stations, and reaching Uptown will require a car or taxi. The hotel does offer free shuttle service to the airport every half hour, however.
West of Uptown Charlotte, Pawtuckett is a small area with few sites or museums. There's not much more than a golf course nearby, but most visitors to Pawtucket stay in the area due to its proximity to the airport and Uptown Charlotte.
It's hard to imagine why anyone other than business travelers would want to stay at the Wingate by Wyndham. Convenient access to the airport aside, the hotel puts little effort into creating an inviting ambiance. Rooms look generic and dated, as they come with dinged wood furniture, tacky gold lamps and curtains, and wall trimmings that look like they're straight out of the '90s. Despite the rooms' cleanliness and outdoor pool, the location makes this a much harder seller than any other mid-level hotel in Uptown.
