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.
Not a good experience
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!
A great hotel when on business
I visited Charlotte in January 2004 on business. Me and two colleagues stayed at the Embassy Suites and I have to say that I was impressed....
The suites were large and clean, well serviced.
Breakfast was complimentary and made to order in the Atrium...omlettes were lovely..although I wasn't brave enough to try the grits !!
A two hour "happy hour" each evening was well received after a day's work. There were also complimentary nachos, dips and peanuts, etc. to accompany any beer that you wanted to consume.
Everywhere was very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful.
There was a pool and gym, but it has to be said that they were a little on the small side (both pool and gym).
If I return on business later this year I will certainly entertain going back to the Embassy Suites

Well after frantically getting the house in order, working an extra day at work, we finally are at the airport. Only to realize that I forgot my camera! Then the plane is delayed to fix the A/C. They finally announce that it will be an hour at least before boarding. So Dan ran home to get the camera. Thank heavens! Even small miracles are wonderful!
... time for filming the show. These cameras were similar to the ones we had been using, though they had some higher definition lenses. Okay, I can get used to it, until showtime when we had no way of knowing who was live and who wasn't (usually the live camera has a red light that displays signifying your camera is live) and our returns (which show which camera is in use at the time) were not working. This made for a fun and ...
Airport in CLT is uneventful. Marinn has brief call on someone asking her to be the axo chapter advisor for a startup chapter at UNCC. The we board on first class seats on flit 852. A few drinks and we notice the guys sitting one row up with a sloppy dress, little goatee, silver metallic painted toe nails and a purple toboggan hat, singing and propping his ipad with some presentation on technology on the wall for all to see. ...
... It was all really interesting! Don joined Claudia and myself for my NASCAR Experience that Claudia gave for my birthday the month before. What an experience! The pictures tell the story. Thanks Don for some great photos! We met Don and Trish for great brunch along side Lake Norman. While on the road we decided that we weren't quite ready to go home ...
... not sold out, so we tried to get it very cheap. In hte end we paid 25$ each. Later we recognized guys standing in front of the stadium 15 minutes before kick-off with 10 or more tickets to sell and thought, we could have gotten cheaper tickets, but it was okay.
We had already lost our frineds in the other car, and we had 4 cards with 2 seat in one section and 2 seats somewhere else. When we ...
