One night stay while attending Women of Faith conference. Finding the entrance was tricky. Check in was easy. The room was clean but nothing spectacular. We shared a king bed that was comfortable.

I stayed here for a weekend and truly enjoyed myself. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean with nice decor. Close in uptown but not too close to the EpicCenter craziness where a lot of Halloween parties were taken place. I really like the fact they have a shuttle that will take within a 3... More

I stayed in this hotel one night following a convention in downtown Charlotte. This is a very nice newish or newly renovated hotel on the downtown upskirts of Charlotte; great if you want easy I77 access, or a halfway point to the airport. They offer onsite parking at a much-reduced rate to downtown, a shuttle within the area, and a... More

This hotel needed a major renovation years ago and now it's complete and it's very nice. All the rooms have been updated and they are very modern-looking although they are still a little bit small.
