Overview

Spacious rooms, indoor pool and delicious food
Fees for Wi-Fi access
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. Members participating in the Marriott Bonvoy program can use and earn points by staying here.
