Be forewarned...This is a long and rather detailed review. If you just want to get the overall gist, scroll to the bottom for my rating! Celebrating an anniversary is a very delicate thing to prepare...but when that same anniversary is a milestone, the pressure is on! After 10 years of marriage, my lovely wife and I decided to visit Charlotte... More

The Holiday Inn is in a great location and you can walk to lots of restaurants and bars.And though the rooms are modern and updated, they are cramped and the beds are not even close to being as comfortable as Marriott or Hilton beds, which is where we usually stay. We saved a little money staying here, but if we... More

From the moment we pulled up to the valet till we left the staff was personable, friendly, and accommodating. Rooms were modern and nicely furnished - ours have a great view as well. I have to applaud the valets - honestly these guys are the best!!!

I stayed at this Holiday Inn for five nights and enjoyed my stay. There weren't any problems. The hotel was clean, and the bed was comfortable. I was in a suite which provided plenty of room for two adults. The location is excellent and within walking distance to so much --- restaurants, museums, parks, and light rail. If I stay... More

Staying here for the week 1/24/2016 - 1/29/2016 and woke up at 1:00 AM as I felt a critter crawling on me while I was sleeping. I jumped out of bed, and looked around, and see a huge cockroach running from the bed to the floor!!! Managed to grab my shoe and killed it. Picture tells the tale. I'd ask... More

The location is great within walking distance to the theater and BOA stadium. There are also numerous restaurants in the area. We wanted to check in early so we could walk to a Panthers game. They were very accommodating and we got in by eleven. Room was clean, big and quiet. The front desk was very friendly and helpful. Pay... More

We stayed at this location for 3 nights and they were very hospitable and friendly. The hotel was quiet at night. Breakfast and evening reception was provided for platinum members. Most activities are within walking distance and There were many restaurants close by. I highly recommend this hotel!

Really convenient to arena, ballpark, and stadium. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance too. Room was fine with comfy bed but we had a leaking refrigerator that got the carpet wet. Even worse...the bathroom door squeaked REALLY loudly which wasn't appreciated when one of us got up in the middle of the night. Three elevators were very slow making our... More
