I recently had the opportunity to visit Charlotte, NC during Spring Break and stayed at the Hyatt Place Charlotte Downtown. We had a standard two Queen Beds (with sofa bed) guestroom with a city view. It was very spacious and I really loved the chic décor. My three favorite features hands down were the Free Wi-Fi everywhere, stylish bathroom with granite counter tops (shower in particular) and the Hyatt Grand Bed. It was so comfortable! I slept very well!
Our room had so many conveniences like the desk area to get some work done. I like having a work space in the room in addition to the hotel business center. It was the perfect size. My nine year old is home schooled and we were able to complete his lessons in between activities. I also like the 42” wall mounted flat screen TV with Hyatt Plug Panel. The Hyatt Plug Panel is equipped with audio/video, audio/PC, HDMI and USB connections. We love to travel with our tech devices and will connect a video game console, Chromecast, Roku or Amazon Firestick in a minute! You also have access to Direct TV.
When the Sofa Bed isn’t in use you can put it away and it gives you a nice sitting area. There is a divider between the sitting area and bed. It gives you some privacy. You have a closet area as well as drawers to store your clothes. You also have a mini refrigerator, pantry and coffee maker with ice bucket etc. There is a free breakfast Kitchen Skillet served daily with a variety of items to choose from. I had Belgian waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon, pink grapefruit and orange juice. It was filling and then I was ready for an eventful day.
The Kitchen Skillet is opened for breakfast, closes after 9:30 a.m. and then you have access to Grab N’ Go Sandwiches, Salads and Snacks from the gallery menu. You also have access to beverages, Starbucks Coffee, Beer, Wine and Spirits. We went down for drinks after hours, and they had us covered! Take advantage of the 24-hour StayFit Gym with Lifetime Fitness Cardio Equipment. You have such a great city view from the fitness center. It’s so beautiful to see.
One of my favorite places to hang out is the hotel rooftop! The view of the city is so beautiful. You feel like you are on top of the world! The pool is also outdoors on the rooftop with lounge chairs and pool furniture. It’s definitely a great spot to relax during nice temperatures. I can’t forget to mention Farenheit which is also located on the roof top area. It’s a restaurant with really awesome food, full bar and some of the best cocktails. Visit after hours and catch an amazing sunset from the rooftop!
Charlotte, North Carolina is the perfect getaway destination with so many things to do right in the heart of the city. It’s great for all ages and there’s definitely something for everyone to enjoy while visiting. It was like playing tug of war with my son because he didn’t want to leave the hotel. He was content with the great service and all the amenities the Hyatt Place Charlotte Downtown had to offer. We had to compromise so that I could soak in some Queen City Scenes and enjoy a variety of foodie adventures.
Hyatt Place Charlotte Downtown is conveniently located in the heart of the city and within walking distance to many local attractions. We walked to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, Amelie’s French Bakery and the EpiCenter. We also visited the 7th Street Market, Pike’s Old Fashion Soda Shop and Romare Bearden Park. The city is filled with so much art and is rich in history. You also have the Lynx Railway available if you want to minimize walking or driving your car.
Fun Fact: Even though you are downtown Charlotte it is referred to as Uptown because it’s the highest point in the city. Do you know why Charlotte is referred to as the Queen City? Take a few guesses and I’ll answer in the comments.
