Wingate by Wyndham
560 Greers Chapel Drive
Kennesaw, GA 30144
After having stayed in almost every hotel chain known to (wo)man as a flight attendant, I felt led to do a site visit. I was delighted to find this hotel staff wonderfully efficient and the lobby and rooms completely rennovated within the past year.
The rooms have new microwave ovens, new mini-refrigerators, new pillowtop mattresses, new carpet and furniture, and the bathrooms have new granite vanity tops and new floor tile. Of course, each room also has a hair dryer, coffee maker and full-size ironing board with iron.
Remember to bring your swimsuit! There's a glass-incased indoor hot tub near the lobby. And a hot breakfast bar and newspaper are included in your price. There is also a small workout room with new equipment and a business center in the lobby with a copier, one PC and a printer.
You may also like to invite a girlfriend, and get some holiday shopping in! Down the hill and across the street 2 blocks east from the hotel is Town Center Mall, which is anchored by Macy's and Belk's. Click here for a list of mall stores. There are lots of chain stores and restaurants also within a few blocks. Here are just a few:
Bed, Bath & Beyond
Garden Ridge (a couple of miles away)
Old Tyme Pottery (only a few miles away)
JC Penney Home Store
Family Christian Bookstore
Jo-Ann's Fabric & Crafts
Dick's Sporting Goods
If you prefer more upscale stores, you'll find them about 30 minutes away at Lenox Square Mall and North Point Mall.
The Wingate hotel is located right off the Barrett Parkway exit of I-75 (up the hill behind Costco and USPlay), about 10-15 minutes from the host church.
Come Explore & Enjoy!
