With 18 stories of environmentally conscious (not to mention elegant) rooms, a massive spa and fitness center and a swank uptown location, these are some of the plushest digs in Charlotte. Ten-foot ceilings, 400-thread count linens, 42” flat-screens (with another in the bathroom mirror) and Bose Wave Radios with sleep sound modules seriously spoil in the 146 rooms. And the culinary options are even more indulgent. Think tapas and artisanal cheeses paired with 35 different single malts and live jazz at Urban Sip; chocolate brunch, chocolate afternoon tea and chocolate-and-champagne tasting dinners at Bar Cocoa. And then there’s Laurent Tourondel’s renowned BLT Steak. Work it off in the 24-7 fitness center, or bliss out in the 13,000 square foot spa with steam, sauna and experience showers, a whirlpool and swimming pool and a manicure-pedicure studio.

How to Get There
I was in Charlotte for three very busy days on a business trip. The Ritz is absolutely perfect and would be to of my list for any future trips. The rooms are comfortable and very spacious, the staff are friendly and the bar does a great fun and tonic after a long day! 10/10
Loved my room. It was cute and well furnished. However, the rooms and hotel in general is a dark hotel. It creates ambiance of seductiveness and classy. Loved having a mirror in the shower for shaving. Staff is friendly as well. Seriously no qualms with the Ritz.
What can you say about a Ritz. It is always a top notch presentation. Either if you stay for the night, hang out listen to the band or simply have a cocktail. Each time my wife and never was truly disappointed with the accommodations, quality and feel, but you have to pay a price is the only drawback. Like anything else you get what you pay for
My wife and I were here for one night to attend a wedding. We were fortunate enough to check in to our room by 8:00am after an overnight flight from California. Our room was elegant and spotless. The bed was extremely comfortable and the shower was great. Was able to use Marriott points for this reservation and we were very happy and content with the hotel and it's helpful & cordial staff.
We stayed in the Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte, for one night and had a lovely stay! We booked an executive suite, and we were very comfortable. The bed was heavenly, and even the sofa bed was comfortable! One big requirement for me in hotels is a great air conditioner, and the one in our suite was fantastic! Prior to arrival, C.J. assisted me in setting up something special for my daughter's birthday. The valets and bellmen were attentive. Check-in was super easy, and when we needed something from housekeeping, Desi offered service with a smile! In-room dining was fast and delicious in the morning. The hotel is conveniently located in the Charlotte's uptown, within walking distance of restaurants, Spectrum Arena, and Bank of America Stadium.
We will return for a "staycation" another time soon, I hope!
