We stayed at the Wingate during our 12-hour layover in Charlotte. We initially had difficulty finding a decent room rate because of the Monday night NFL Panthers game. Everything was booked up and over priced. Fortunately, the Wingate was affordable and surprisingly decent. Comfortable bed and nice amenities. The pillows weren't great but not a dealbreaker either. My only criticism is that the shuttle pickup at the airport took excessively long. But there was no glitch with our shuttle back to the airport. All in all, I recommend this place for what it is.
