Dunhill is one of those hotels in a "historical buidling" where a few modern upgrades like AC and WIFI were added. The room i stayed in (402) was ok sized, the bed was comfortable, the shower had hot water, and the flat screen was big enough. I was unfortunately next to the elevator which makes for a bit more noisy an environment and general noise insulation was average. The restaurant is a big plus - i enjoyed both a great dinner and great breakfast. Service was efficient and friendly.

Dunhill is an alternative to more modern facilities like the Hilton City (in which i also stayed) for travelers looking for more "personality" hotels. My room was smalle, the bathroom as well, it was a bit more noisy....but i had the impression i slept in a place with a soul!

Advice: if you can, avoid rooms ending in "02" which are next to the elevators

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.

Room Tip: Sacrifice the view for quiet! Ask for a quiet room, probably at the back rather than on the main street.

Downtown Charlotte has a slew of towering modern hotels - the Omni, the Marriott, the Hilton, etc., but the Dunhill is unique. Only 10 stories high and with 6 rooms to a floor, it is a little gem of history - 1929, apparently, is old for Charlotte - in an otherwise modern landscape of concrete, steel and glass.
Is it flawless? No. But it is a very pleasant place to stay. It is reasonably priced and right in the middle of downtown Charlotte, within very easy walking distance of a large number of bars and restaurants of all stripes.
It is a classic little hotel of the type that were in most American small cities in the first half of the last century and that feels quite European. It has a pleasant lobby with a small but respectable lobby bar, the staff are attentive, and the feeling is comfortable but not intimidating. The hotel restaurant is the Harvest Moon Grille, which is adjacent and which prides itself on local fare and makes for interesting room service.
Our room, a corner room tucked away from the rest of the floor, was not large, but there was plenty of space. It had a Keurig coffee maker, a little refrigerator, and a large, flat-screen t.v., as well as a clock that included an iPod dock. The hotel is one of the few in that price range that still seems to offer turndown service.
The bathroom was large and perfectly adequate, although a night light would have been appreciated because the bathroom was as dark as a cave in the middle of the night.
Heat was a bit of problem. Despite having something that might be mistaken for a thermostat, the heat was either on or off, which made the first night a bit uncomfortable and the rest of the weekend something of a balancing act. It was not a serious issue; just an annoyance.
Noise from the street was another minor issue. Although the minimal number of rooms on each floor made the floor generally quiet, the hotel's location on the corner of Tryon and 6th Streets made for a fair amount of street noise from emergency vehicles, even on the sixth floor. Definitely ask for a room above the fifth floor.
The bed was comfortable - not boutique comfortable, but comfortable - the bathroom amenities were pleasant, and the furniture and decor were more interesting than the usual big-box hotels. And the location is great. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Choose a room above the fifth floor if you can, and the corner rooms (501, 601, 701, etc.) seem quite removed from the rest of the floor.

I stayed here for one night, a Saturday, to go to the football game the following day. I loved most everything about it. First, it very much reminds me of hotels in London, and I think that has been done on purpose. The major difference though is that these rooms are much larger. The staff was very nice and helpful. I would say my favorite thing about the hotel though is the location, right in the center of the city, walking distance to most everything you need!

Last week my wife and I stayed at the Dunhill and had a good experience. As others have noted, it is an old hotel (we liked that), but we did not think it looked out of date. The accommodations, service, and location suited us perfectly. We ate breakfast there and were pleased with the food and the service.

Once we came in we didn't use the car until we were ready to return home the next day. We were within walking distance of all the major shopping, restaurants, and sights in the downtown area. We ate dinner at the Capital Grille which is on the other end of the same block on which the Dunhill is located. After dinner we attended an opera at the Belk Theater which is diagonally across from the Grille. Then we had only a one block walk back to the Dunhill after the opera. I am happy to recommend this hotel to others who have business or recreational interests in the downtown area and enjoy the warmth and charm of a boutique hotel.
