... plane so they all got off and we sat on the plane. About 11:00 we got notified that we could board again and leave so finally off we go.
I had planned to go to Tucson as soon as I finished this trip because I had 3 days off so as soon as I landed, I went out to my car and changed out the clothes in my suitcase. I had sweaters and sweatshirts in my suitcase but since it was about ...
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 Charlotte Marriott SouthPark
Travelling from England and never having visited this area before, I booked this hotel in advance through Expedia for two nights on my arrival and one night just prior to departure on the recommendations of Trip Advisor. Unlike the last reviewer, I was not disappointed in the slightest. It perfectly fitted the bill for me: quiet, pleasant and good value.
Planning to Stay at South Park DoubleTree next time!!
My husband and I just stayed here this past weekend. We had reserved our room about 2 1/2 months ago and were really looking forward to our stay based on reviews on this site. However, we were very disappointed. We had a King non - smoking room which faced the parking lot. The room, including the bathroom, was dirty and definitely dated. Also, the hotel was very noisy -- could hear other pople and children in their rooms as well as people showering,etc. The bar was desolate -- particularly for a Friday night and we waited about 15 minutes for the bartender to come back from a brake before being served. WE would not stay here again.
Great hotel. My favorite in Charlotte. Service is unbeatable. A must stay when in Charlotte for those who have never stayed at The Park
Very Pleasant, Intimate
Just returned from a pleasant 3-day stay at The Park. Service/staff were gracious, friendly and very efficient. Self-serve complimentary morning coffee/tea near elevators was a plus along with complimentary bathrobes, free parking & apples at the front desk. Room was well appointed, bathroom large, bright, clean w/ a large illuminated magnifying mirror--great for those of us who are visually-challenged. It's slightly off the beaten path but accessible and easy to get to from the airport. Bar had live music on Sat. Not a mega-hotel but a comfortable, easy place to stay with enough amenities to satisfy.
The room was clean. I was a little disappointed that as a single traveler they put me in a room with two beds rather than one king, but did not ask for a change. Service was very good. Shortly after I got to my room, someone called to see if everything was satisfactory. When I did not make it to the phone for my wakeup call, they call again a few minutes later. These are the little touches that make a pleasant stay. I had a drink and appetizer in the bar which was very good and the breakfast buffet the next morning was decent. I would definitely stay there again.
Elegant though dating a bit
RECOMMENDED: Located just off the South Park Mall but far enough way to avoid street noise, the Park Hotel is a bit like staying at your Aunt's house. Little decorating touches, elegant styling, plush carpet and general attention to detail make for a very comfortable stay. The property, built in the early 80's, has gone thru 1 major renovation and is currently being painted. Bathrooms are bright though fixtures getting a bit dated. Beds comfortable and room nicely appointed. Check-in stylish and fast. This hotel attracts a different sort of clientele and is worth a visit.
Very pleasurable stay at The Park. Would stay there again. Very quiet and peaceful hotel. There were workers there working on the building, but did not seem to bother us at all. They were gone by 6 pm. Overall great experience, very close to a lot of attractions.
Staff great, hotel average
We stayed at the Park Hotel Aug 2004. While it is a nice hotel, well maintained, classy decor, etc. I just didn't find anything "fabulous" about it. I guess it depends what you are looking for in a hotel. We're more into "fun" than appearances. The pool area is VERY small. The breakfast buffet was excellent.
Loved the Park
We recently stayed at The Park, July 9-11 with our two young children. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. The rooms were decorated nicely and comfortable. There were two weddings going on at the hotel but the staff never skipped a beat. I would definately stay again.
P.S. the outside pool was very nice and the kids loved it.
We had a hard time deciding if we were going to stay here or at Ballentyne. However the location of The Park is really close to South Park Mall and that is definately an attraction. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel had a older--well established air about it. The decor is mahogany and marble in the public spaces and is a little more traditionally eclectic in the guest rooms. The only complaint that I have is the quality of the beds, sheets and pillows. I really had difficulty keeping the bottom sheet on the bed and I am a bedding freak so that drove me insane!!! The breakfast buffet at the hotel was really well done. There was an above average selection from what I have usually encountered in other hotels.
