      The gentleman at the elevator gave us a heads up on a special they were doin with surroundin businesses. Jj at the front desk gave us some free passes to clubs which saved us a lot of money taking our friends out for her bachlorette party. The employees were encrediably helpful to us.and the pillows are so comfortable. I forgot to ask them at checkout what kind they were because I would like to order me one. I never slept better

      The location is great to "taste" Charlotte. Simply in the heart of the city.

      Manager was insensitive to requests for price adjustment to match other guests costs for convention. Fire alarm apparently went off, however, on the 8th floor we did not hear any alarms. Rode elevator to main floor where we found out about the situation. I understood parking would be included with our stay, it wasn'T. Could not seem to get room supplied by housekeeping consistently. Had to go ask for wash clothes, shampoo etc. Thought I was booking directly with hotel on line and found out there was a third party booking it.

      We got there around 3:30pm checked in the lobby was packed and check in line hugh. We were there for a 4:30 concert thinking we had plenty of time to get our room and catch a cab. At check in I was told no rooms are clean and we would have to wait, how long I asked they didn't no. Hauled our stuff back to parking deck parked car now its like 5:45 we go check on our keys and the desk clerk just slides me the keys and didn't say nothing. We have already missed openning acts. Never again will I stay at this Holiday Inn.. Get to our room the the maids are still there and one is talking on her cell phone. Nice

      I didn't think it was fair that a customer who is staying on the premises is charged to park their vehicle, this shoud be a courtesy from the Holiday Inn.

      The room did not contain items it said it would, terrace was closed, we had no view as promised,our shower was clogged and we had to stand in dirty water as we showered, parking not included as stated, doubled charges us for the room as well as our meal at their hotel restaurant.... After all of this the staff gave us nothing more than a shrug of their shoulders and "sorry". They made not attempt of recovery. We will not be back. Ever

      The uptown location

      One of the best hotel stays my wife and I have ever had. Every person we delt with when checking in was friendly and helpful. They made our dinner reservations, sent berries and champagne up to our room (it was our anniversary) and arranged special treatment at the very nice resteraunt he recommended and got us into promptly on a saturday night! It's the place to stay near the Epicenter!
