    The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte
    Charlotte, NC
    #1 in Best Hotels in Charlotte
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 745 reviewsTripAdvisor (745)

    Sitting just one block from the Spectrum Center in downtown Charlotte, this Ritz lives up to its brand's name. The hotel's muted wood tones are offset by large, colorful examples of contemporary art, while the spacious guest rooms house oversized beds and large bathrooms. All accommodations are also equipped with iPod docking stations, work desks and two flat-screen TVs one in the bedroom and one in the bathroom's mirror, though there is a fee for Wi-Fi. Although room rates are typically high, visitors say that the experience is worth the splurge. For many, the hotel's spa – which offers a diverse treatment menu, as well as a peaceful indoor pool seals the deal on a great stay. For others, it's the hearty French cuisine served at BLT Steak (BLT standing for Bistro Laurent Tourondel), not to mention the confectionary creations found at Bar Cocoa.

    The Ballantyne, A Luxury Collection Hotel, Charlotte
    Charlotte, NC
    #2 in Best Hotels in Charlotte
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 902 reviewsTripAdvisor (902)
    Free Parking

    Sitting about 16 miles south of downtown Charlotte in the quiet suburb of Ballantyne, this Luxury Collection hotel is ideal for visitors in need of some rest and relaxation. Guests have access to the 18-hole championship Golf Club at Ballantyne, signature treatments at The Spa at Ballantyne and gourmet American cuisine served at the Gallery Restaurant. Ornate decor and spacious guest rooms, complete with minibars, coffee makers and Bose Wave stereos, impress visitors, but reportedly the true highlight is The Ballantyne's customer service. Everyone from the cleaning staff to the hotel management wins guests over with true Southern hospitality. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Rewards members can earn and use points here.

    Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel
    Charlotte, NC
    #3 in Best Hotels in Charlotte
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 170 reviewsTripAdvisor (170)

    The Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel is a hip, boutique addition to Uptown Charlotte. Travelers staying at this hotel will be able to walk to many of the city's top sights, such as the 7th Street Public Market and the NASCAR Hall of Fame, and event venues like Bank of America Stadium. Opened in November 2017, this Kimpton property offers several brand-specific and traveler-favorite amenities, including complimentary bikes, in-room yoga mats and evening social hours. The hotel is also home to a popular rooftop bar, though fairly strict dress codes apply: "dress to impress," the property recommends. Additional on-site amenities include in-room spa services, complimentary morning coffee and tea, a fitness center and yoga deck, and a modern Italian-inspired restaurant, Angeline's. The Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel's 217 rooms and suites include marble bathrooms, beds dressed with pillow-top mattresses, and floor-to-ceiling windows. While overall the hotel receives ample praise from reviewers, some do warn that street and rooftop bar noise can seep into the rooms. Since Kimpton falls under the IHG brand, IHG Rewards Club members can earn or redeem points here; members are also treated to extra perks like spa and bar credits.

    Free WiFi

    A historical property in Charlotte’s Uptown neighborhood, The Dunhill Hotel originally opened in 1929 and is within walking distance of area museums, art galleries and restaurants.

    Charlotte Marriott SouthPark

    #8 in Best Hotels in Charlotte
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 3.5 based on 118 reviewsTripAdvisor (118)
    Free Parking

    Recent guests love this Marriott's location  approximately 7 miles south of downtown Charlotte  for its proximity to the SouthPark shopping mall and a variety of different eateries in the area. If you're looking to spend a significant amount of time sightseeing, you might want to consider the Charlotte Marriott City Center, instead. Though there are plenty of eateries at the mall, you don't necessarily have to leave the premises to satisfy your appetite. Its in-house restaurant, Rexford Park Public House, features classic American cuisine like steak, burgers and seafood, all for a fairly reasonable price. Previous guests also praised the hotel's on-site amenities, which include an outdoor pool and fully equipped business and fitness centers. Guest rooms feature in-room coffee and tea service, flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations. Members of both the Marriott and Starwood rewards programs can earn and use points here.

    Omni Charlotte Hotel
    Charlotte, NC
    #9 in Best Hotels in Charlotte
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 3.5 based on 131 reviewsTripAdvisor (131)

    Visitors can't help but rave about the Omni Charlotte Hotel's downtown location; it's just a short walk to attractions like Discovery Place and the Levine Museum of the New South, not to mention vibrant nightlife spots. But the central locale doesn't come without its cost: Some complain of hearing late-night street noise on lower floors. This Omni's modern, somewhat funky decor garners applause from recent guests, who enjoy the guest rooms' boldly patterned carpets that contrast with muted neutral tones. Inside the rooms, lodgers can also indulge in amenities like 37-inch LCD TVs, complimentary newspapers and plush bathrobes. When venturing outside the guest rooms, travelers can discover common areas like the Trade Restaurant and Bar, which features local, southern-style cuisine. And thanks to its Omni ties, Omni Select Guest members can earn points and get perks like free Wi-Fi access when staying here.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1702 reviewsTripAdvisor (1702)

    This hotel in downtown Charlotte is all about being trendy. Polished parquet flooring and an extremely large crystal chandelier give the lobby a sense of chic grandeur. The guest rooms are just as visually stimulating, with soothing earth tones, hardwood furniture and skyline views (the rainfall showers and flat-screen TVs don't hurt, either). The hotel's proximity to attractions, like the NASCAR Hall of Fame, also makes it a convenient place for sightseers to lay their heads. Though you'll be surrounded by a bevy of eateries and bars, consider staying on-site for a meal or two at JP Charlotte, which offers burgers, steaks and flat breads. You can also grab a cocktail at the on-site bar. What's more, Marriott Rewards members can earn or use points for perks here.
