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.

  • Grounds and gardens with an extensive collection of plants and trees, both native and exotic. Attended the Carnivorous Plant Carnival- fun for the kids, but interesting for adults too.
  • Really really beautiful. Would recommend to anyone in the area. Very relaxing. Several places to put up a hammock.
  • Check out the Asian Garden. Worth the trip in itself. Also the native plants area is must see. This place is a hidden gem in Charlotte area
  • Would've stayed longer but it was really hot! Lovely place to wander through!
  • I love these gardens. This is my third visit. The greenhouses and outdoor gardens are amazing. They have a huge diversity of species. I didn't know there were so many different types of orchids and succulents. If you are in the area go.
