We booked a king mini-suite for 3 nights for our annual wedding anniversary road trip. From my first phone call to inquire about a couples massage package which had been charged 3 times (they not only corrected that, but recalculated our entire stay and reduced our total bill by almost a third!) to our last night when we returned to find our room decorated with silk 'rose petals', mood music playing from the TV, and a bottle of chilled champagne next to the jacuzzi, the attentiveness of the entire staff was the most impressive I've ever experienced!
Other great features of this hotel is the free breakfast buffet (real food, like eggs, bacon, sausage, pastries, fruit, even DIY waffles), marred slightly by renovations on the main floor which forced the staff to set up the buffet in a conference room. They have a free shuttle van which runs in the uptown area that came in very handy when we found a sale on wine and didn't feel like walking 2 miles back to the hotel with 12 bottles. Also, there's a parking tower available at the hotel (shared with the neighboring Hilton) so you don't have to leave your car outside.
Overall, the Hampton Inn Charlotte-Uptown made our vacation trip a complete success. We'll definitely look for an excuse to return to Charlotte just to stay there!

Room Tip: The parking garage can be accessed directly from the 4th & 5th floors.

We always book Mariott hotels but I found Hampton Inn offered a cheaper price and free breakfast so I thought we'll give this hotel a try.

What I liked about this hotel:
-Very good customer service. The fridge I requested arrived immediately. I also asked for a step stool that my toddlers can use to reach the toilet sink. They didn't have one specifically for that purpose but they sent a small ladder and that worked fine for us.
-Breakfast was sufficient, there's a good variety - sausage, egg, waffles, boiled eggs, pastries, etc.
- Free shuttle within 3 miles - we didn't know that car seats are required for my toddlers to ride the shuttle. In most places that we visited where a shuttle is available , car seats were not required. I wish they informed us when i called the hotel before booking.

- Access to 4th and 5th floors from the parking garage.

- White linens. I'm not a fan of dark linens that other hotels use.
- proximity to restaurants
- indoor pool with ample pool toys for kids.

Dislikes
- The room was average.The carpet in one corner was peeling. Also not a fan of dark carpet.


Overall, it was a pleasant experience and it was a good deal for the price that we paid.

We always stay at Hampton Inns (as long as there's one where we're going). This one started out exceptionally well when we got upgraded to a suite upon arrival. The staff was extremely friendly, and the location is terrific if you want to be in the part of Charlotte that has a lot of restaurants within walking distance.

They have the delicious cookies typical of most Hampton Inns, but be forwarned that they put them out around 12:30pm instead of the more typical 6:00 or so. We were very pleased with out visit.

After extensive searching for a hotel in uptown Charlotte, I chose Hampton Inn. My husband and I had never stayed at a Hampton Inn before, and we didn't really know what to expect. We were looking for a hotel close to Time Warner Cable Arena, as we were attending a concert. This hotel far exceeded our expectations, AND it was only 3 blocks to the arena.
The front desk check-in was the smoothest, fastest check-in I have EVER had anywhere. Maria at the front desk was very friendly and professional. Our room was very nice and spacious. It was VERY clean....absolutely spotless! We had a whirlpool tub in the bedroom, and it was so clean, it looked brand new, like it had never been used. We were so happy with our room, til I will try to stay at Hampton Inn's only, from now on....
The free shuttle was fantastic! Very friendly driver, and the wait time was less than 5 minutes during rush hour. The covered parking garage was free and is connected to the hotel. We felt very safe while there. And last but not least, the free hot breakfast was very good. The buffet included scrambled eggs, bacon, hash browns, waffles, pastries, cereal, etc. Pretty much anything you could want, they had it.
I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel to anyone. We are so glad we stayed here.

I have stayed in many Hampton Inns..one for more than a year. But this hotel is the FINEST Hampton Inn, even beating the Beal Street #1 hotel in Memphis.
Lets start with the entrance...pure Southern elegance. The surrounding restaurants, shops, and movie theater is the best development I have seen outside The Woodlands Texas. Dean and Deluca, The Palms, and many high end shops are right out the door.
Now the bathroom.
There is a TV built into the mirror. Had that in a Four Seasons, but also paid 4x's the rate.
Everything else is typical Hampton, great beds, hearty breakfast (best breakfast room ever).
Great staff, very accommodating.
