“Very nice weekend stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Most hotel reviews simply depend on the room you stayed in and I must say, I hit the jackpot. This was the cleanest, most well maintained room I have ever stayed in and I am comparing it to many more expensive hotels. I'm not overly picky, but you know how the little things can make a difference. No stains on anything, no nicked tiles in the bathroom, no stray hair, no well worn pillows on the sofa, etc. Everything looked practically new.

I came to Charlotte for the Q-City BBQ festival and while I could hear the music in the background from my room, I heard nothing else. The place seemed packed but maybe there was no one next to me because I never heard any TV noise, or people in the halls, thumping upstairs or downstairs... so the walls must be pretty thick.

The parking was fine although a lot of larger vehicles were crammed in tight on the lower levels. I had no problem finding plenty of space a few levels up. The area is well lit and elevators are close so it never felt unsafe to me.

I'm only going to ding for one thing and I'll admit that maybe *I* should have asked for more information. Since I never the left the hotel until I checked out, I had trouble using the hotel key to get out. The front desk person said use the key instead of my ticket, so that's what I did. However, I was asked for more money and there was no attendant to help. Finally, a person in the car behind me got out to help and was nearly as confused. I finally figured out I needed to use a different key card reader but then I could not find the key card drop. Neither could the driver behind me. I ended up giving the key to a parking attendant on the street and she said she would turn it in for me. And she offered to assist the driver behind me so that was nice.

Other than that, I will definitely stay here again next year. Close to everything and very well managed.

As out of town guests, just coming in for a sporting event, it was a wonderful place to stay. A bit on the pricey side, but I will admit well worth every penny. Location was perfect, the hotel staff were scarse though, but I didn't need anything so it didn't effect my stay. Our room was beautiful, the view, well who needs it when you are only sleeping there.

Room Tip: We chose this hotel because it was close to the stadium. It was within walking distance, so we could...

Was in CLT for business and got Courtyard Downtown through Priceline. Nice hotel. The desk staff was friendly and professional. Checked-in with no issues and they accommodated my always request of high floor, good view, room away from elevators. My room was nice, comfortable, and clean. Plenty of restaurants near.

Stayed here while visiting my daughter at a nearby college. Couldn't ask for a much better location while in Charlotte. Right in the middle of everything. Check in was quick and painless. Depending on what you are looking to do, you don't really need a car, but they have parking onsite if you have one. Lobby is typical for a Courtyard, with the Bistro area for food and drink. Room was spacious and clean. A nifty touch is the pool on the roof.

While visiting, we went to the Giants/Carolina game, and the hotel was filled with football fans. I can see why - the stadium is really close, and the tailgate parties start right across the street from the hotel! As a nice touch, when the Giants got crushed and I came back all downtrodden, the nice lady at the front desk offered me a hug (I needed it!).

Would definitely stay here again. Only word of caution - the streets of Charlotte can be confusing! The entrance to the hotel and parking is on the sidestreet, and depending on how you approach you may find yourself in a "no turn" situation and have to drive around the block.

Nicely situated for a trip to Charlotte, very convenient for the stadium and theater. Near to lots of great restaurants. Ruth Chris, McCormick and Schmick just across the street. Reception staff not very welcoming, but staff at bar area very nice. Good size rooms. Easy car parking.

if you are visiting beautiful uptown Charlotte, you could not ask for a more convenient, central location. Our room was clean, and all of the staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. Great three- night stay.
