My second visit to this location was equally as enjoyable as the first. Great location; great staff/service all around. In particular, the desk staff is the friendliest and most knowledgeable of any I've ever encountered. On my recent visit, when I requested assistance from Housekeeping, they were there within a matter of minutes to resolve the issue. Rooms are very...

This particular Holiday Inn is better than most as it does have a nicely, albeit Target-esqe, decorated lobby and a matching cafe/bar to go along with it. My husband and I stayed here for a bodybuilding competition that was just down the street. I was disappointed to find out that this Holiday Inn only selectively honors government rates and that...

Dear Laura L, We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with others regarding the hotel and it's location to local attractions.

Who would've thought that a Holiday Inn could be such a great place to stay right in the center of Charlotte? I used to think of Holiday Inn as a budget hotel but now that I've stayed at HI in 3 different locations I've come to think of them as a great place to stay at a reasonable rate. I...

Typically $50 less than the surrounding full service hotels. Bathrooms need updating, but most of the property look clean and new. Service is very good. The bar is connected, and you are walking distance from the best restaurants in Charlotte.

When I stay at this hotel, I feel like I'm coming home. The staff is so friendly, accomodating and kind, always with a "Welcome back" greeting. I always have a delicious breakfast in the restaurant where I'm treated like family, too. It's my favorite hotel, and I travel all year long.

This has to be the best location to stay in downtown Charlotte. One can walk to everything and leave the car safe in the attached garage. Parking is free - just present the parking ticket at the front desk for validation at checkout time. The room I had was quite comfortable, though a bit cramped with too much large furniture...

Dear Hosmith, Although we are in the heart of Uptown Charlotte I can certainly understand your frustration in trying to have some quiet time in the evening. I was disspointed to hear that we failed to place you in a room that was away from the music (as much as possible in the city). Please feel free to contact me...

Tip - bring your parking ticket in (take it out of your auto) for validation. We stayed on a Saturday night on the 7th floor - the street noise was crazy loud until about 2am! It is probably fine during the week days, little noise I imagine. We were on Vacation so the late night noise was not a terrible...

Dear VG, My apologies that you had to return to your car to obtain the parking ticket on your last visit.
