The Ritz Carlton Charlotte does not disappoint -- even though our business was outside downtown Charlotte, we chose to stay on the Ritz Carlton due to its proximity to the Epicenter and many of the high end bars and restaurants in town. From check in to check out, the Ritz Carlton lived up to its reputation and made our stay most enjoyable.

Room Tip: We were told to select a room on the side opposite the Epicenter for a quiet stay.

I have stayed in many Ritz-Carltons and this one was alright. New, with modern decoration we were very comfortable. Unfortunately the sofa bed was incredibly uncomfortable and I ened up sleeping on the floor instead. The amenities were wonderful as usual, there was even a television in the mirror. Our TV was broken when we first got to the room but it was quickly repaired. We ate in the hotel restaurant, BLT and it was delicious. We ate breakfast at the coffee shop, and it was disappointing. It was also strange to go up to the 3rd level and be with business men next to Citi bank. The view was not nice from our suite.

Simply stated, this is one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in. My wife and I went for an overnight visit. From start to finish, this hotel knows how to make you feel special. Sparkling wine upon arrival, manager's reception on the 15th floor, beautiful rooms and bathroom, great indoor pool and hottub and even some cookies in our car when we left. Wow! Just Wow! Will definitely go back, and strongly recommend.

The best business hotel I have stayed in whilst in the US.

Stunning decor, enormous rooms with TVs in the bathroom mirrors. Really comfy beds, with blankets between the mattress and sheets for that princess-and-the-pea experience.

Attentive and chatty staff, nice bar and lobby. The breakfasts could be better- the healthy option is sweet and not all that healthy.

No better location for the major banks, and the social hub, the epicentre.

Highly, highly recommended.

This was my first stay at a Ritz property. My husband is a Platinum rewards member, so we were immediately upgraded to a gorgeous corner executive suite, complete with a fresh fruit plate and cold water. The rooms were very clean, furnishings were nice (although showed very slight wear), and service was hands down amazing. There was some slight noise outside the room, but it is expected in the middle of a city. Everyone was extremely nice and accommodating. Valet was kind enough to drive us to dinner in their courtesy car. Location is ideal to explore the city and perfect place to stay after a show in Time Warner Cable Arena. The bar, Urban Sip, had gorgeous views of the city at night and was perfect for a night cap. Hope to return very soon!

Room Tip: Ask for a garden room on a high floor if you are concerned about road noise.

Have stayed here twice in 2012, don't remember the exact dates. Both time, I was very pleased with the service and rooms. It's a Ritz so you know you will get the quality that comes with the name. Was not cheap, but you don't come to the Ritz expecting cheap.

Very nice accommodations, convenient downtown location. My only gripe was that the night before a very important day of work, I could not fall asleep due to the pounding music at the club across the street. At 1am, I called the front desk and asked if I could switch rooms. In 15 minutes, they moved me into a 1 bedroom suite on the quiet side of the building (ask to stay in a room with even numbers if you are a light sleeper). Also had a fantastic massage at the spa after a long day of work and travel with only 15 minutes notice.
