Top Hotels in Charlotte

The best Charlotte vacations start with the perfect pairing of convenient flights and luxurious accommodation. Consider these guest-loved hotels as you plan your trip:

  • The Westin Charlotte: Stay in the center of lovely Uptown Charlotte, within walking distance to Harvey Gantt Center for African American Arts and Culture—a vital piece of national identity—and the Mint Museum Uptown. If you get carried away sightseeing, don’t worry—you can order a delicious meal with 24-hour room service or stowaway some snacks in the in-suite refrigerator.
  • Le Meridien Charlotte: Perhaps the name gives it away, but this downtown hotel has a contemporary Continental flare and comfort. Located within walking distance to the NASCAR Hall of Fame and the Afro-American Cultural Center, Le Meridian—true to its name—sits in the middle of the many incarnations of Americana. Relax back at the hotel with dinner in one of the three restaurants and drinks at the poolside bar.
  • The Dunhill Hotel: In Charlotte’s historic Fourth Ward, this downtown hotel keeps good company with McGlohon Theatre and Discovery Place, among other historic and cultural landmarks. Built in 1929, The Dunhill is a landmark, too, and you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time when you see the stately décor and enjoy old-school Southern hospitality.
  • Omni Charlotte Hotel: When you see a building of gleaming windows and elegant angles standing tall Uptown, tell yourself, “That’s where I’m staying.” From the gorgeous suites of this modern high-rise, you’ll be within walking distance to Blumenthal Performing Arts Center and the Time Warner Cable Arena. Enjoy an evening of entertainment and return to 24-hour room service in your luxury suite.

Major Attractions

As you'd expect from a marvelous metropolis, Charlotte boasts many museums, including the Levine Museum of the New South and Discovery Place Children's Museum, where your imagination will shake off its moth balls. Do you have a need for speed? Head to the Hendrick Motorsports Complex for NASCAR excitement, and then pay homage at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. As the flag waves the winning car across the finish line, go ahead and scream with joy—outside voices are welcome here.

When you crave a more refined experience, spend an evening at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center; the building itself is a masterpiece of contemporary design that attracts major acts year-round, like traveling Broadway productions and international concert tours. Layer on the luxury with fine dining at one if Charlotte’s top restaurants before the first curtain rises. In the historic neighborhood of Elizabeth, just southeast of downtown, The Fig Tree Restaurant wows diners with artful Continental cuisine and a charming bungalow built in 1913. The Fig Tree Restaurant is trusted with more marriage proposals than any other dining venue in the city—perfect for your next romantic vacation in Charlotte.

Recurring Festivals and Events

If you’re planning your vacation in Charlotte around the cusp of autumn, don't miss Festival in the Park in September where you can stroll, people watch, and buy local wares. Bands, Brews, and BBQs at Carowinds and Charlotte Pride Week both occur in late summer. The early summer Charlotte Beer Festival is new to the annual calendar, but is quickly becoming a local favorite. Bottoms up.

When The Queen City issues you a royal invitation to its historic streets and immerging cuisine and brewery scene, accept graciously and book a Charlotte vacation package with Travelocity. Sweet North Carolina is waiting with a warm welcome.
