Embassy Suites Hotel Charlotte

... to get out that had flights during those 2 + days. I almost left thinking it was hopeless but they always say when you are flying standby "don't ever give up till they close the doors". So I waited and sure enough, I got on and I heard the flight attendant say there were still 3 empty seats on the plane. Amazing! I still can't believe with the mess they had in Charlotte that I was able to get on.
The Charlotte airport was a mess. It had been shut down for 2 - 3 days this past week because of the snow storm that went through. So there was a lot of people trying to get out of Charlotte. I listed myself on a flight at 2:35. There was also a flight at 1:00 that got cancelled so I figured there was no way I was going to get on that 2:35 flight because they moved everyone that was on the 1:00 flight to the 2:35 flight along with other people that were in the ...
This wasn't a trip on my schedule. One of my friends asked if I would pick up this part of her trp for her and I said I would. I wanted to get more hours anyway. I flew with 3 people that I've never flown with before. The captain was Mike, the first officer was Joe and the flight attendant was Sam. We just went to Birmingham and back and we were done. We were ready to leave and the captain made an ...
We picked up our 2nd captain this morning. He said he was supposed to go to Little Rock with us yesterday but he got stuck in Albany for 3 days and didn't get back in time to come with us to Little Rock so they dead headed him up later in the day. He said ...
I was working the front and the other flight attendant was working the back. This is a short flight so we don't do a beverage service on this flight. The other flight attendant came up to the front and said we have a guy in the back throwing up. So she took him back some water to drink. She was talking to him and it turns out he was at a bachelor party. He wasn't drunk but he was definitely hung over. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Embassy Suites Hotel Charlotte
Absolutely Loved it
Relocating to Charlotte and stayed at Embassy Suites on 7/8 and 7/9. It is just gorgeous and the complimentary drinks in the afternoon and breakfast in the morning are wonderful. We will be returning in August with our three children and will be staying across the street at the Holiday Inn because it will be less expensive but I sure will miss the Embassy Suites. Don't hesitate to stay at this beautifull Hotel.
Always love the Embassy, Charlotte no exception!
Seems the renovations are nearly complete. Our suite was newly renovated with the color scheme and fabrics showcased in a wall box near the front desk: lovely golds and greens and other jeweltones. The beds were comfortable, the room clean, and the linens and spreads sumptuous as a chain allows. The atrium was lovely; and the only evidence of continuing renovation was that the waterfall and water flow areas of the atrium were dry during our stay. We loved the exotic birds in the atrium lobby. The free made to order breakfast was above average given the sheer number of people who were served during a short time. If for no other reason, Embassy Suites are always a bargain when you factor in the free happy hour [or two] and the free breakfast. We'll be back!
Don't even consider it
Maybe by the time you read this the rooms will have been renovated but when I was there May 2-May 6, 2005 the room I was in was old and although it was clean, it appeared dingy because of its age. It also smelled very bad. And the most serious problem was the walls are as thin as paper and water running and toilets flushing in other rooms are louder than if in your own room. The lobby is nice and the breakfast was good. But if you're planning on spending any time in your room, choose another hotel.
Fabulous 'Home away from home'
I had the opportunity to call the Embassy Charlotte my "home away from home" for 3 long weeks of flight attendant training and let me be the first to say that this was absolutely one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. I am not a "good traveler" and for me to be so comfortable for that period of time really says something. Not only is the hotel absolutely gorgeous, but the rooms are very large and inviting as well. The staff is friendly and the generous nightly managers receptions were a great close to the day. In the morning, we woke up to friendly staff who were always willing and eager to serve us at the "cooked to order"/buffet breakfast. I will ABSOLUTELY stay at this hotel ANY time I am in Charlotte again and would reccommend it to anyone....hands down.
For the second year we spent 5 days at the Embassy during October race week. The suites are large and very clean. The breakfast to order can't be beat. Everyone was very nice and it is in a good location. We will stay there anytime we are in Charlotte.
Great Hotel for family
I stayed at this hotel during July 2-4th for my family reunion and we loved it! The hotel's atrium is absolutely gorgeous. This was my first time to stay at an Embassy Suites Hotel. As everyone else stated the hotel staff was very helpful. The complimentary hot buffet breakfast was good as well as the nightly Manager's reception. My only complaint is the the pool and gym area was very, very, small.
We're now planning our 2005 reunion and because we loved this hotel so much, we're currently searching for other Embassy Suite hotels in Atlanta. The next time I'm in the Charlotte Area, I will defintely stay at this hotel.
We were to stay at the Embassy Suites for 2 nights Oct 7th and 8th. On check-in the desk clerk informed us that the business center's computer was down. The rooms were dark, in need of an update. We had an extra bonus, potato chips, bacon, (couldn't tell) on the floor. The bed was horrid. It should have been thrown out years ago. The shower/bath combo was the smallest I have ever seen. The breakfast was of course included and not worth the terrible room. The pancakes and bacon were precooked, tasted like the day before, were not eatable. Everything else we had was OK. The only great thing about the hotel were the employees. They were friendly and courteous. We were told that the hotel is due for major renovations starting in January and will actually close for awhile while this is going on. We checked out after the first night and went to the Westin. Aaah, a good nights sleep.
Love to stay again
My husband and daughter (11 years old) recently spent 2 nights here (8/11, 8/12) and absolutely loved it. The other reviews state that it is a great business hotel, we thought it was a great family vacation hotel also. We arrived early and were able to check in without any problems. The staff was excellent, very friendly and helpful. The free breakfast was outstanding - plenty of food and very good. The rooms were clean and modern. The pool area was very nice. Since there weren't many families there, our daughter had it mostly to herself and she loved that. We reserved our room over the internet and couldn't beat the price - we had expected to pay much more! I would definitely recommend this hotel and would love to stay there again myself!
Best business traveler hotel in Charlotte!
I am surprised there is only one comment about this excellent hotel! I agree with the comments made in their review concerning staff, and cleanliness, as well as the wonderful breakfast and managers 2 hour reception. I would like to add something else about the business amenities! What a nice business center! Private and fast with a reliable printer. I stayed there on an extremely busy w/e. ,race weekend. However, I was able to take care of business and all my needs were well attended! I will be going back!
