There’s a lot of driving involved with making it from Florida to Washington DC, and as such we chose our hotels based on location.  After spending between 5-8 hours in the car each day we weren’t too keen on then spending more time driving to get to different attractions!  Walking was our preferred method for exploring each new city, and as such centrally located hotels were a must!

Thankfully, the aptly named “Hilton Charlotte Center City” doesn’t lie – it really is in the very center of the city!!  We stepped straight out of the hotel lobby into the bustling city of Charlotte, and within minutes had passed restaurants, street entertainment, historical churches and cathedrals, winding up in an amazing outdoor park area with stunning views of the city skyline.  You could say that the phenomenal location is the best thing about the hotel, but really that was just the start of an amazing stay.

Charlotte is a captivating and colorful cosmopolitan – and so is the Hilton Hotel.

Sophisticated, luxurious and classy, everything about the hotel glistened and shined.  It was the smiling staff however who really made the hotel lobby shine, creating a friendly and welcoming atmosphere for every guest.  The staff were fantastic overall – genuinely interested in making our time in Charlotte enjoyable, they answered every question we had about the city, provided us with maps of the area and advice on the best places to head to on foot.  They really took care of us.

Arriving was incredibly easy.  With the option to self park or choose valet, we self parked in the attached parking garage. Everything was sign posted so well that not even I could have gotten lost!!

The room was spectacular.  Clean, sophisticated and spacious with two bathrooms as well as an office/living space, I couldn’t decide where I wanted to relax; on the couch overlooking the city or on Hilton’s famous “Suite Dreams” bed which I just sank into!!

Friendly and welcoming staff really made the hotel lobby shine!

The Hilton experience exceeded all of our expectations.  Obviously the brand has a reputation for excellence, however the Charlotte Centre City hotel really went above and beyond the benchmark.  

Upgraded to the executive level with access to the executive floor, we enjoyed the ultimate in luxury and services will a full bar service, complimentary breakfast and evening Hors d’oeuvres.  The real perk of the executive floor access however, was that we were essentially treated to a private breakfast buffet, with only a handful of guests having the same access.  While we were lucky enough to have received the upgrade complimentary, we afterwards realized it’s only $30 to upgrade your room otherwise…an offer we will most definitely be taking up on our next visit to Charlotte!

As mentioned in the above video, the hotel is incredibly active on social media. Make sure you’re following them on Facebook and Twitter for all of their latest updates and hotel deals!


Travel to Charlotte and stay with the Hilton Charlotte Center City!  You won’t be disappointed by either!
