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).

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!

Interesting stay

After selecting a room with a king size bed, I was placed in a room with 2 double beds. I was given a handicap accessible room which had falling tile and a huge stain on the floor. In addition, the shower did not have a buffer of any kind therefore when you showered there was a puddle on the floor that spanned the bathroom and the room entrance. However, the staff was very friendly. The location was great and in walking distance of the Bank of America stadium. Truly great location. I would recommend to a friend, thinking that the room issues were isolated incidents. Great appetizer/happy hour prices!

Unbeatable location for the price

The room was nice for the price for uptown Charlotte. Nice view of the skyline. Checked out the nightlife, The Taste of Charlotte was uptown during my stay, and checked out the rest of the city. I hope to stay at the Westin again.

Premiere city location

Westin hotels have the best beds and lots of pillows to go with them. Only complaint is that the fitness room was too warm. No need for a car here. Cultural activities and quality restaurants are within walking distance. The city itself is clean with lots of open space and parks. Staying at the Westin is just the icing on the cake.

Westin Charlotte

The service was great. The rooms were very disappointing. The bed was comfortable (as expected), but the furniture was damaged, the doors and walls were dirty from use and overall the room was very rundown from use.

Accomodations great...service mediocre

The hotel was clean, modern, comfortable however, good luck finding someone to help you. There rarely was staff at the front desk making check-in, check-out, and questions time consuming. Friendliness was also lacking. We chose to valet park our car. No one ever answered when we called to get the car on several occasions. This was frustrating and required extra time waiting in the lobby. Also, after returning to the hotel, there was no staff at the valet desk to accept keys or the car! Much frustration with spending extra time on tasks that could be resolved with extra staff!

Convenient to convention center

The room was quiet! No noisy heater!!! Great view from the 25th floor! We were going to the ISPA convention and the location was perfect! Also convenient to restaurants. Really enjoyed the Starbucks in the lobby for breakfast. Beautifully decorated. Nice bar. Appreciated the directions to the airport from the concierge.
