This is a lovely hotel and our room was very nice. I didn't try the restaurant but met a friend in the bar and the bar was great.

My one complaint is that the pool is actually a lap pool that's part of the YMCA (in same building) and kids are not allowed to use it on weekdays. Anyone traveling with kids knows that a pool is mission critical, and my 4 year old was in tears about this.

That said, the hotel staff really took our complaint seriously and sent us a nice food tray with a handwritten note to apologize, and offered to reimburse us if we wanted to take him to an offsite swim facility. This was too much running around for us and we didn't take them up on the offer, but I was impressed by the staff's sincere show of concern.

Dear cambridgejen, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at the Hilton Charlotte Center City. I am sincerely sorry that the YMCA is not available to children under 16 during the weekdays. The YMCA is a great facility that we are able to offer our guests and we are working with our partners at the YMCA to remove their restriction on children. I am glad to see that the front desk offered alternatives but I completely understand the frustration of not being able to use the pool adjacent to the hotel. I do hope the next time your travels take you to Charlotte you will choose to stay with us again.

I stayed here for Four nights during ADDR in the Charlotte Convention Center in March 2014.
The Hotel was good in perfect location in the downtown, just 5 Min walk to the Convention Center, 5 min walk to Epic Center (a lot of Restaurants, Lounges , Bowling , CVC Pharmacy & Cafes ).
Spacious , Clean & Comfortable Room, you’ll find all a maintains you need. We reserve a room in Family packages with comes with free WIFI & Breakfast was served in the lobby by coupons was give it to us when we checked in.
The self-parking & Valet Parking was with a fee 19$ & 24$. The Hotel was 15 Min from the biggest mall in Charlotte by car South park Mall, 25 Min from the Concord Outlet by Car.
You’ll find a lot of Restaurants & cafes surrounding the Hotel.

The only negative was slow service & you need to call many time to answer your call from the reception & valet Parking.

I went for a conference so my job paid for the hotel. I was checked in under someone else's name and my debit card was checked in under her name for incidental charges as well. Luckily she didn't rent or break anything because I didn't find out about the situation until the following day.
Secondly, House keeping walked in on me because my room was in the system as "dirty" and because I was never actually checked in officially.
The front desk person was rude for no reason to me and others checking in for the conference and I can only guess that her hateful, mean, Mr grinch personality is the reason she failed to notice that she didn't check me in correctly.
The manager was nice and my complaint was followed up with apologies but I will never return, even if it's free.
The room was nice, I liked the view of downtown. The Only thing to point out is that my room didn't have a tub so showers only and the mirror offers a full view of yourself while showering..that can be good or bad I suppose.

Stayed there for only one night to attend the Springsteen concert at the Time Warner Arena. This location could not have been better. Very easy to find. Plenty of parking. Restaurant was very good. Staff was very, very friendly. Room was nice appointed and spacious. Comfy beds. Great bathroom. There is no reason to stay anywhere else as long as price is reasonable.

Each time I travel to Charlotte, I stay in this hotel. It does not disappoint. I was on the 8th floor, close to the elevator and did not hear a thing. I had a double room that was spacious and comfortable. The bed was just right and the linens were nice and clean, yes I do check. The bathroom was very clean and tidy. One thing that you should not miss is access to the YMCA. Years ago, they charged to access the Y. Now it is included in the price. That was a total win for me. The hours are from 5 am to 9 pm.

All in all, I travel a lot for business. I tend to be let down by hotels a lot, but not this one. This is may favorite place to stay in Charlotte.

We were in town for one night and had a great stay at this Hilton. Clean rooms, great service, good food from the restaurant, and close to the downtown sights! We are Hilton Gold Members so we were treated very well! The room we stayed in was newly renovated and had an updated bathroom/fixtures, etc.
