Where to stay in Charlotte

To avoid driving or riding on public buses during your visit to Charlotte, book your room in or near the city center. You can find most of Charlotte's chain hotels in so-called "Uptown," the centrally located business district and hub of tourist action. Hotels near the airport provide good low-rate options for travelers on a limited budget. These spots offer rooms with access to major roads, allowing you to explore the region quickly and easily.

  • Very cool part of the city. A few friends and I went on a free night and enjoyed it a lot. It wasn't to busy so we felt free to take our time browsing. The Green is across the street and is a very enjoyable little park. Parking is also free and convenient on the free museum admission nights.
  • Some amazing art collection as well as glass sculptures. The 2nd floor has a nice cozy place to keep your kids busy. I would love to go back again. Wednesday evenings have free entry.
  • Good variety of artist and styles. But my purpose was photography and it delivered. Can spend the whole afternoon if you lile exploring arts .
  • Such a cool place. It closes at 6 and I was only in town for the night, so unfortunately didn't get to see as much of it as I'd have liked to--but everything I saw was awesome. A lot of colonial-era American art, too, which was unexpected but super interesting. Incredibly friendly staff and very open building. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Charlotte for the first time.
  • If you really enjoy art and looking for a low-key day date, this place is nice for an easy price. After you enjoy the museum, you can walk around the city to see all the beautiful street art and find good places to eat.
