KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- The Wilson World Hotel Maingate, with 442 rooms,
became the Red Roof Inn Resort at Maingate following its purchase
by Diplomat Hotel Corp., Atlanta.
The inn, at 7941 W. Irlo Bronson Highway, is Diplomat Hotel
Corp.'s first hotel in Florida, said Robert Frobish, general
manager of the family-oriented Kissimmee inn.
A $2.5 million renovation, now in progress, calls for the
creation of at least 25 kids suites by mid-January, he said. These
units will cost about 30% more than the inn's low- and high-season
rates, which are $79 and $99 per unit, respectively, Frobish
The low season is January, May, September to the week before
Thanksgiving and the post-Thanksgiving period to just before
Christmas, he added.
The suites will consist of a queen or king bed for the parents
and a walled-off children's area containing two beds with a Sony
Playstation, a television and sports decor. An additional 25 suites
may be added, he said.
The overall refurbishment, to be completed by early February, in
addition to the rooms involves the landscaping, corridors and the
