Popular rooftop bar, central location and friendly staff
Pricey beverages and high parking fees
This Le Méridien property receives high marks from guests for its convenient proximity to downtown Charlotte and rooftop bar. However, despite being within walking distance of the EpiCentre shopping and dining complex, the NASCAR Hall of Fame, and the Spectrum Center (home of the Charlotte Hornets), some previous travelers reported issues with the shower's temperature and water pressure, while others liked the room decor and friendly customer service. Recent guests also appreciated the seasonal outdoor pool and the outdoor pool, along with the large 24-hour fitness center. The drinks and cuisine served at Social Bar & Kitchen and EVOkE restaurant also received rave reviews, although some visitors note that the bar's drink prices are a bit high. But because of Le Méridien's Marriott ties, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.
