Like any Ritz, you are trained to expect the best. Well this new location in Charlotte definitely adheres to that standard. The rooms are wonderful. And yes, as a growing city with a lot of construction and nightlife, you're going to have some noise, but if you can get past that I think you will enjoy. We stayed on a Saturday evening and we had no issue with noise on Sunday morning.
The rooms are great, clean, modern and elegant but simple; not over-cluttered with unnecessary items. There are televisions in the mirrors of the bathrooms which is a nice feature when you're getting ready or taking a bath and want some ambiance. One thing I did have a problem with was the bath/shower combo in the first room I had. The shower arm would not stay put and I basically had to hold it the whole time. Also the tub design which you shower in, seems ill-planned. The water just collects on the border tiles and drips over onto the floor in the bathroom. A quick call to the front desk and we were given a new room with a seperate steam shower and tub. VERY NICE.
The lobby is definitely something that Charlotte has been missing and that is entertainment in hotels. Other cities such as Atlanta, thrive on this type of entertainment like you would see at the W hotel chains. Every time that I've eaten at BLT or just went in to have a casual drink, it's been a great place to brush shoulders.
If you want entertainment outside the hotel, just cross the street and you have everything at your fingertips. The Epicentre is across the street, the lightrail station is a half a block (at Epicentre), Bobcats arena is a block away, dozens of bars/restaurants/clubs are well within comfortable walking distance.
All in all I give it two thumbs up. Service is impeccable (as it should be), food at BLT is great, the atmosphere is calm and welcoming and the rooms are great. If you can afford to spend a couple extra bucks, definitely make it happen.
