“Outstanding Location in Uptown Charlotte”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

I'm just completing my stay here for a combination business/mini vacation trip. You couldn't ask for a more convenient location for exploring uptown Charlotte, so many wonderful restaurants, pubs and attractions within easy walking distance. The staff here are polite, friendly, and helpful.

I was pleasantly suprised to be upgraded to a concierge floor, the 15th floor. Since the majority of my visit was on the weekend, I wasn't able to fully appreciate the lounge, but it sure was nice to be able to grab a glass of wine and some snacks after a long Thursday road trip. The breakfast on Friday was also pleasant, the usual continental choices and included little mini-omlettes and great OJ and coffee.

The rooms have been upgraded, comfortable bed, flat screen TV, sink and mirror outside of the bathroom. The air conditioning unit is noisy when the fan is running but it's fairly easy to achieve a comfortable temperature with limited fan noise. Parking is $15/day but you can take your car in and out as much as you want. Overall a pleasant stay and I would stay here again.

Like most people I know, I associate Holiday Inn with older hotels, but not this one. It is very modern. The lobby was so flashy I had to ask if I was in the right place. The front desk staff was fun and playful and really took the time to explain everything to me regarding parking and things to do. It is walking distance from anything worth doing in downtown Charlotte and whatever you can't walk to their shuttle with take you... FOR FREE. Great place. Great staff. I will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Sinks outside of bathroom. It didn't bother me but it took some getting use to.

I attended a convention in late October and stayed at the Holliday Inn. The hotel was 5 blocks from the convemtion center. This let me get up close and personal with people of Charlotte as I walked to and from the convention center. I felt safe at all times. The staff at the hotel was great and very attentive to my needs. The young lady on the 10th floor houskeeping was more than outstanding. If and when my travels take me bakc to Charlotte, I will stay at the Holliday Inn.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the Herst Tower. The building exterior is lighted at night.

Most of the better hotels appear to be clustered in the downtown, which is very walkable. If you want more of a mid-range chose this is a great choice. It is dated, but is a good deal. I got my room for around $70 a night on Priceline plus fees. If you want good location and good value, this is a great choice. Very nice staff as well.

Service and value mean a lot to me and cleanliness is where I draw the line. I know things can go wrong, I also know things can be fixed. When I let the staff know about issues in my room and leave for the rest of the day I expect them to be fixed when I return. I also expected they would care when I told them they were not. So much for my expectations. Maybe I'm just spoiled by hotels that care.

I was on a business trip to Charlotte which was going to be held on the campus of the Blumenthal Performing Arts Center. My wife and I ended up staying at the Holiday Inn. The hotel is centrally located to all of Uptown Charlotte and very near great restaurants and activities in this area. The front staff was exceptionally warm when we checked in, immediately handled a small problem we had and continued to be courteous and helpful throughout our stay.
The room was clean, up to date with a comfortable bed, free wifi throughout the hotel. Great place to stay!
