This Hilton is way out of town but near UNC Charlotte and the interstate. It is located on a small lake with paddle boats and geese. Surrounding the lake are shops and restaurants, including a very nice ice cream and sandwich shop. We had convention food at the hotel, but it was delicious, served hot, well plated. Great cheesecake. Room was clean and well appointed. Air conditioner was noisy. We traveled on the Piedmont train to Charlotte. The Amtrak station is nothing to shout about. Maybe the new Transportation cabinet member, Charlotte Mayor Foxx, will do something about it. It cost the price of our train ticket to take a taxi to the hotel. In the future, light rail is planned out that way.
