Convention Center convenience with high style and in-room massage

Attached to the Charlotte Convention Center, The Westin Charlotte offers the ultimate convenience for exhibitors and attendees. This smoke-free hotel with architectural style ensures even busy business travelers experience great pleasure. Book an in-room massage, order Starbucks in the lobby, head to the spacious fitness center or join a group run past scenic Charlotte landmarks. Two designer bars provide fashionable places to unwind in the evening. Noon checkout allows for extra rest after a busy week. 

Highlights

  • Directly attached to Charlotte Convention Center
  • Walking distance to the NASCAR Hall of Fame
  • Beautiful lobby bar and American grill restaurant
  • Indoor lap pool, spacious fitness center and in-room spa services
  • No extra fees for pet-friendly lodging with dog beds available

Location
Attached to the Charlotte Convention Center, The Westin Charlotte enjoys a prime location for business travel to downtown Charlotte. The towering hotel also places guests close to the Bank of America Stadium (home of the Carolina Panthers), NASCAR Hall of Fame, Harvey B. Gantt African American Cultural Center and the Bechtler Museum of Modern Art.
Rooms
Though The Westin Charlotte has 700 guest rooms and suites, guests experience a personal attention to detail in each one. Complimentary in-room Starbucks Coffee, a 37-inch LCD television and high-speed Internet access (fees apply) make it easy to feel right at home. Work from the desk with an ergonomic chair or workout with an in-room fitness kit. Signature Heavenly Beds are dangerously decadent, with crisp white sheets, a down blanket, duvet-enclosed comforter and a pile of fluffy goose-down and feather pillows, all on 12-inch-thick pillow-top mattress. Request a dog bed for traveling pets, who can stay at The Westin Charlotte without a fee.
Features
Tote a laptop and access free Wi-Fi in any of the attractive public areas of The Westin Charlotte. This business hotel caters to those who seek work-life balance. A basket delivered doorstep precedes in-room spa rituals, filled with a relaxing music CD, bottled water and optional scents for the room. See the local sites on a group run or plan a jog using a custom running map. For a memorable meal, Ember Grille serves upscale American dishes fresh from its wood-burning oven and rotisserie. Adjacent to the hotel, the newly redesigned BAR10 beckons with ambient lighting and red stools. Choose covered self parking or leave the Jag with the valet (fees apply).

Convenient, clean, and great staff

Loved this hotel. Even the hallways smelled good. Very clean, convenient location. Staff was great. Was attending a convention at the convention center directly across the street. Best hotel for that purpose. Nice value for price.

Look for the food truck street party on Fridays a short drive away. I wish I had seen it before I went to a different restaurant. It looked really fun.

Westin Charlotte

I came for a class that was being held there -- not knowing Charlotte at all I stayed at the host hotel. I found it to be lovely and more than I needed. I reserved a KING bed and it was given to someone else without a reservation so I ended up with two doubles. Not much you say? This is a lot of money for me and I wanted what I reserved -- no excuse. The wi-fi at the Econo Lodge and the Motel 6 is FREE, re-read, FREE, not $13 a DAY on TOP of $200 a night for the room. C'mon guys we don't want to get free wi-fi and work in your BAR. We need to work not drink. $18 a night for parking. I was charged for three full days and technically was there for less than 48 hours -- upon check in and parking NO ONE told me that it cost ANYTHING!! That is unacceptable. When I saw that pancakes cost $14 for three (they cost about 89 cents to make -- I realized I was going to find a grocery store for food before I ended up needing to take out a second mortgage. I understand that it is a posh hotel in a lovely downtown setting -- I did not need it. I needed a warm, clean place to sleep. That is MY error -- but in times like these and the economy the way it is, it seems that places like this are gouging customers who come on business and simply don't know what their choices are for lack of knowledge. I would not stay there again -- even on vacation. I would find a more affordable place to stay and spend the extra bucks on fun.

Entertainment tip: Long walk from hotel

I recommend wandering around the downtown area. It is lovely and there is a lot to see. I walked to the football stadium, down Stonewall to the big church and then down to the bus station. The downtown is bustling and vibrant. It was a nice way to see the area.

Wedding Night Retreat

I chose this hotel as the final destination on our wedding night. The staff was very helpful. The agent at the front desk was even kind enough to let me look at 2 rooms with different views before making my selection. Both the room and bathroom were spotless. I chose the "Charlotte Uptown" view which was marvelous. The price was reasonable and the service was top notch. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting Charlotte.

SPECTACULAR VIEW OF CHARLOTTE

The hotel is in a great location, heart of downtown. Room was very comfortable and had a fantastic view of Charlotte. Truly enjoyed a room on the higher levels. Staff was very attentive and professional. The only con, they charge for parking even if you decide to park your vehicle yourself you still have to pay for it. overall a great stay if you can afford it, lots of choices around though!
