Quick hit in uptown Charlotte

Experience was just fine. Last minute reservation seeking a conveniently located metro hotel for a DJ/Dance club night. Accommodations for the Epicenter couldn't have been easier and style was very contemporary.

Circle around and come up 4th street to get to the right parking garage. Signage isn't the greatest, but the primary Epicenter parking garage does have elevators that service the Aloft hotel.

Location is awesome

Easy access to the Epicentre and street level. Smells great. Has that modern vibe with the communal space in the lobby. Rooms seemed a bit harsh/dreary. Liked the bench/chaise in the room. Clear, sliding bathroom doors didn't close...were unacceptable...don't stay here if you're in a new relationship :)

Date night out

We had an amazing time while staying at Aloft. The hotel is right in the heart of downtown Charlotte. We were able to walk to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, and the EpiCenter was right outside our window. The staff was extremely helpful. Overall, great location and great value!

Ideal location for going out!

Customer service rep at the check in desk was not very friendly. When we asked upon arrival if a certain club had passes she stated that there were more than enough and that we could get them later that night when we came down to get them there were no more. She also placed us in a handicap room and we didn't not request needing that, so everything in room was lower. Also, there isn't separate parking or a separate elevator for the hotel and parking is $20. On the bright side, the hotel was average as far as cleanliness and the location is ideal!

Bachelorette Getaway

This hotel is in the PERFECT location. Dead center or everything. They understand that they are in the heart of a "Party City" and have ear plugs in every room. I enjoyed this amenity, even though I had no need for it. Best hotel.

Comfortable stay in the very center of Downtown

Very convenient place in Charlotte. A little bit noisy around, but you can find the entertainment places at any choise. Different bars, cafe, bowling, dancing club "Wiskey river" are good and open far beyond the midnight.

Quick Getaway

I went here as a quick getaway. The hotel was very nice.It has a friendly staff and my stay was super comfortable. The Epicentre has everything you can think of at your doorstep. The WXYZ Lounge isca nice option in the lobby instead of going out. This is my new favorite hotel.

Some Drawbacks

The room was small but pleasantly decorated. There was no armchair and so one either sat on the bed or in a desk chair, less than ideal for someone who reads. I had a pleasant stay there but for one major drawback: music blares from various businesses below the hotel well into the early hours of the morning. This was quite throbbing and intrusive.
