This hotel has the nicest staff my visit got off to a rocky start but JJ made everything perfect. We used the shuttle and the service was terrific. The only thing that stopped this hotel from getting a 5 star rating was the bed, sat to close to the floor and really needed replaced. This did not take away from... More

Very good location, offered a shuttle to locations in 3 mile radius, excellent room service. There was an item that was left off my tray, but before I even noticed it, I received a call that it would be brought promptly...and it was. Slept well, except the window wall unit was difficult to balance temperature. I did have a couple... More

The hotel is very well located in the Charlotte city center, close to the 7th street ligth-rail station. The swimming pool on the roof is awesome and the bar offer cheap and consistent breakfast dishes. There are also special offers for the drinks every day at the bar whose manager is very nice. I stayed there with a friend for... More

The location and the rooftop pool make this a great spot for a quick trip to Charlotte. It's in the heart of the city, within easy walking distance of activities and great food. My favorite part was the rooftop pool. It's a hotel pool, so you are essentially soaking in chlorine, but the view is worth it. If you're looking... More

The only thing going for this hotel is the location, and do you pay for that! The room was an average Holiday Inn room overlooking the roof top air-conditioning equipment. The bed was well worn with stiff pillows. Requested softer pillows and a box of Kleenex, which was accommodated. Be prepared to pay $24/day (plus tips) for valet parking or... More

I lived in uptown Charlotte for many years and always recommended guests stay at the holiday inn center city (on the corner of 6th and college). Its convenience, friendly staff and rooms are among the many benefits. I never stayed there myself until a recent business trip brought me back. I checked in and was told that if be on... More

Beautifully done Holiday Inn. Every staff member that we passed greeted us and offered to answer any questions that we may have. Rooms and bathrooms were immaculate and comfortable. S The only negative is that the parking garage isn't attached directly to the hotel so you have to walk around on the street. But your can opt to drop you... More

We hosted a wedding at an outdoor garden venue in Charlotte and most of our family stayed at this hotel---what a gem! The desk staff was warm and friendly and happy to help us with any request. The valets were fast and fun! The rooms were up-dated and spacious, and we all enjoyed the lovely rooftop pool! We were able... More

I managed to transfer to this hotel when my original Hotel was found to be unsuitable due to location. I was delighted. On check in the staff was friendly and professional and managed to sort out my IHG membership which I had incorrectly used when I'd originally booked. Facilities are a bit sparse but it is very central. Location was... More

The location is great! Lot of restaurants in walking distance. The front desk people were really nice at check in. The valet guy was very outgoing, love that. He gave us some good ideas of what to do and where to eat. The room was smaller, but it served the purpose. Nicely decorated and clean
