Unique hotel at value prices with free Uptown shuttle

Four blocks from the Charlotte Convention Center, the eccentric Charlotte Center City Hotel offers Uptown convenience at a reasonable price. Hop on the hotel shuttle for a quick ride to shopping or dining. Or, stick around and play pool in the lobby, grab a drink in the bar or cool off in the seasonal splash pool. A retro chocolate brown and white scheme meets low lighting and a mellow mood at this older, quirky hotel. Guests must be at least 21 years old to check-in.

Highlights

  • Uptown value near the Convention Center
  • Large conference space with a 16,000-square-foot ballroom
  • Eccentric atmosphere with a pool table in the lobby and cocktail bar
  • Outdoor seasonal splash pool with cabanas

Rooms
Floor-to-ceiling windows give way to stunning city views from some of the upper-level rooms at Charlotte Center City Hotel. A moody chocolate brown scheme with modern leather and wood furnishings lend urban flair. Belgian linens, down duvets, flat-screen TVs with pay-per-view movies, iron/board, air conditioning, safe deposit box, coffee/tea maker and work desk round out the list of amenities. A glass-panel shower in the bathroom comes stocked with Gilchrist & Soames bath goodies.
Features
Those looking for a conference space with personality don't need to look further than the 16,000-square-foot ballroom at Charlotte Center City Hotel. Complimentary Wi-Fi in public areas plus Internet access in guest rooms (fees apply) adds the convenience to stay connected.

Good price, good location, comfy bed

Good all around.. If you want a decent room that has comfortable beds, is moderately priced, and really close to uptown -- this is the hotel for you. Would stay there again

Wonderful Experience

Very clean, comfortable room, walking distance from performance hall where we saw Justin Timberlake. So glad we could stay close by and not have to drive back home that night. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Appalled..

$20 parking, so you are better off booking a more expensive hotel that doesn't suck.. From the moment I arrived the staff was extremely inefficient and patronizing. Of the three10min tasks I asked of them I ended up waiting over 50. Who cares if the decor is nice when the AC doesn't work. On the bright side the guy single handling the parking was very kind.

Great price and high design !

As an interior designer, I recognized the time and effort put into selecting all the finishes used in this hotel. The herringbone stone floor, the modern furniture, the houndstooth fabrics and carpet and shades... It was a nice, clean and comfortable place to stay for our 13 layover in North Carolina. And the price was so affordable. For a hotel with this high end design I expected a much higher nightly rate. Overall great place to stay !

Nice but you pay for all extras

This is a very clean and very nice hotel. However you will pay for everything extra. There was no microwave or fridge in the room. However they did provide me with a microwave for an additional $15. Also parking in the hotels parking lot in which you are already paying to stay will cost you an additional $20 per day. If you simply need a bed, shower and TV this place will do. Very clean and very pretty but more expenses than I had anticipated.
