  • Ample parking and great seating. I have always enjoyed events there. It has great acoustics. It very easy to get in and out of the venue.  more »
  • Attended the"Get on Your Feet" show and what a great show it was. The music and dancing and comedy were outstanding. Too bad they don't reinvest the money they make to update this old and dirty venue....  more »
  • Great Gloria Estefan musical history of Cuban music taking America and the World by storm. From the Conga to Get on Your Feet the hits kept on comin'.  more »

  • This is a decent venue for concerts and other private events. Easy access to parking at a reasonable price. Staff if adequately friendly and helpful. Auditorium is outdated but adequate for the cost.
  • Fun place to see a show. Maybe starting to show it's age a bit but the seats were comfy even if the temperature was a bit high.
  • Very nice auditorium. Seems to be a good view from every seat. Bathrooms are clean. Parking us expensive and a bit far from the venue.
  • Shortly before the Steven Martin/Martin Short show, my husband earned some crutches. There was no way he would be able to get to our balcony seats. The staff was great. They gave us some handicapped seating on the first floor, helped with doors and access, and were so very helpful! From the time he limped in to the time we left, the staff was just amazing!! Thank you!
  • Nicely designed, well maintained/updated facility with excellent staff who go the extra mile. Definitely recommend!

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.
