We chose the Dunhill Hotel over the more glitzy Charlotte hotels because it was in the centre of town, it had valet parking and it wasn't too expensive. And we felt it had more character than many of the others. We didn't care that it had no pool or outside space, we weren't in Charlotte to swim! Our room was quiet - at least outside was fairly quiet, give or take the odd siren during the night - it was the air conditioning whirring away that took some getting used to. The restaurant alongside the hotel was, in our opinion better than it looked. It had the decor and feel of a motorway cafe which was sad because the good food they served there deserved better. The breakfasts were particularly good. The young reception, bar and restaurant staff were all charming, efficient and friendly....so were the valet parking chaps [mustn't leave them out!] We would certainly recommend The Dunhill to friends who like us needed a two night stopover in this pleasant business city.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Decades before The Dunhill Hotel would open, local architect Louis Asbury Sr. was entranced by the great Italian craftsmen who created cathedrals famous for their soaring, elegant roof lines. Today, The Dunhill Hotel stands distinct on the Charlotte skyline, an amalgam of American, British, and Italian influences, something those with an eye for period detail can detect. Opened in 1929 as the Mayfair Manor apartment hotel, with half of its original 100 rooms permanent residences, today's Dunhill Hotel is a thoughtful evolution. A full restoration was recently completed, and various on-going aesthetic improvements all share a common goal--to celebrate the original vision of Mr. Asbury, with a nod to the needs of the modern traveler. ... more less
