I relied on Tripadvisor for a good hotel for a business trip and was not disappointed. One note of caution: Unlike many other major cities, it is much more difficult to get reservations during the week, rather than the weekend. I must have snagged one of the last weekday rooms available and, in fact, the front desk was turning folks away when I walked in the door.
I had experienced a long day cross country and had to make a presentation the next day. Well, the staff greeted all of us with a glass of wine and carried our bags. The service never stopped; it was incredible. The next morning, because we were on California time, we missed breakfast. No problem. The staff furnished us with sack breakfasts that were more than adequate. Cynthia and the rest of the staff are a credit to the hotel business. This is how you hope to be treated. Although our business was in downtown Charlotte, Matthews is a short drive from where we wanted to be. The rooms are small, but nicely appointed and the bathrooms are charming with marble countertops, though only one sink. The window was small so there wasn't enough light if you are staying for more than just a few days, but, best of all, the hotel is very quiet because it is a block off a main highway and must be sound proofed. Each room has a portable bedtop desk that came in very handy. It holds your remote and provides a small writing surface. The cleaning staff works overtime or something because this hotel is spotless.
Charlotte is lush and beautiful so just driving around to appointments is still very pleasant even if you don't have time to sightsee. The Carolina pace is much slower and quite welcome; even the speed limit is between 45 and 55 mph, something this Californian had to keep in mind to avoid a ticket.
I don't know about other Hampton Inns, but this one is a winner.
