Unique hotel at value prices with free Uptown shuttle

Four blocks from the Charlotte Convention Center, the eccentric Charlotte Center City Hotel offers Uptown convenience at a reasonable price. Hop on the hotel shuttle for a quick ride to shopping or dining. Or, stick around and play pool in the lobby, grab a drink in the bar or cool off in the seasonal splash pool. A retro chocolate brown and white scheme meets low lighting and a mellow mood at this older, quirky hotel. Guests must be at least 21 years old to check-in.

Highlights

  • Uptown value near the Convention Center
  • Large conference space with a 16,000-square-foot ballroom
  • Eccentric atmosphere with a pool table in the lobby and cocktail bar
  • Outdoor seasonal splash pool with cabanas

Rooms
Floor-to-ceiling windows give way to stunning city views from some of the upper-level rooms at Charlotte Center City Hotel. A moody chocolate brown scheme with modern leather and wood furnishings lend urban flair. Belgian linens, down duvets, flat-screen TVs with pay-per-view movies, iron/board, air conditioning, safe deposit box, coffee/tea maker and work desk round out the list of amenities. A glass-panel shower in the bathroom comes stocked with Gilchrist & Soames bath goodies.
Features
Those looking for a conference space with personality don't need to look further than the 16,000-square-foot ballroom at Charlotte Center City Hotel. Complimentary Wi-Fi in public areas plus Internet access in guest rooms (fees apply) adds the convenience to stay connected. Garage parking is available (fees apply) and a shuttle takes guests to Uptown attractions of their choice.

great experience

The hotel was swanky and very upscale ! The personnel were all very pleasant and accommodating. We were extremely pleased with our visit. The fact that there was a charge for in room internet was a little disappointing. Free internet was only available in the lobby. Aside from that it was a very relaxing and comfortable hotel experience.

Nice stay

Room was basically new from remodel, didn't have refrig or microwave. Everything was very clean, staff very friendly and helpful. Didn't like having to pay for parking in hotel parking lot and using Internet service, I thought this was included in room cost.

Not what I expect of a Sheraton

While it appears that rooms have been remodeled some of the hotel looks like it's 20 years old. The elevators are ugly and dirty.. Heat was not working in the room. Television reception was unusable for the network stations for one of our two days. Other than a drink refrigerator in the lobby there was no option for snacks or the typical variety of beverages in hotels with a snack "shop/area" like Courtyard. The hotel does not deliver newspapers to the room and even ran out of USA Today by 7:15am at the desk without apologies. The room charges are not delivered to the room for checkout - you must visit the desk - a throwback to the 90's. On the positive side the decor was fresh and modern but I would be surprised if they paid their contractors. The workmanship for the tile work in the bathroom was amateurish and in bad need of clean-up.

Business trip

Scanning through the pictures I thought this would be an excellent place to stay. Upon arrival the greeters were nice enough but I got the vibe they really didn't want to help, they gave the bare minimum effort. I was making small talk about some of the things the hotel had to offer.... pretty much got the ordinary breakfast at whatever time talk. The room was hot when i first arrived, you need a key card in a slot to keep the ac/lights/ect. working, i was in a suit so i was already hot enough. The room was nice as in the pictures on the website. The room was pretty bare though, no accessory plugs, no coffee maker, no fridge... those are extra fees. Parking $14 a day. I finally caught up with a helpful employee, he i asked him about the fitness center, he said i could use the aquatic center next door at no charge... too bad it was my last day :(. He was exactly how all the employees should be, friendly and very informative... i wish i could remember his name.
