Yesterday after school we decided to see an Amarican Football game. We did not have any tickets, so we just headed to the stadium 90 minutes before the game should start to see if we could get some. Arriving near the stadium, there was a traffic jam. But we got the chance to buy 4 tickets from a guy walking around between the cars. He wanted 50$ for each card, but we knew it was pre-season and the ...
... jump. First we did the mega zip, which is a really long ride with that zip line from a 46ft. tower. Then we had to walk all the way back, just the zip line is 1,123foot long and the way is a little longer, to do the mega jump, where you jump off the tower with a controlled free fall. arriving on the floor we got unhooked off the ropes by a guy named Heinz. We had a short talk to him, he is an exchange student ...
Today we had to go to school in the morning for open house. We got to know our teachers and the classes and we all were very excited about how it will be. We were shown around the school and then we went back home.
It was so hot that we decided to go to the pool after lunch. The ...
We boarded our plane and had great seats, more comfortable than usual and since the flight was only about half full, we had room to stretch out. Flight took off on time at precisely 4:50 p.m. About an hour into the flight...we were east of Philidelphia over the Atlantic...the Pilot comes onto the intercom and announces that they have a minor issue with the one of the windshield defrosters and due to safety procedures and policy, they could not attempt ...
... lost or confused cause someone approached us and said 'it's very quiet here on the weekends, what are you looking for' he pointed us in the direction of some restaurants but they didn't really tickle our fancy and Staten Island wasn't seeming to be what we thought it would be so we headed back to catch the next ferry. At least 200 people were on the ferry we took over - I think we were the only few to actually leave the port - everyone seems to get off take some photos ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Omni Charlotte Hotel
My wife and I decided to get out of Atlanta for a getaway weekend in Charlotte and chose to return to the Omni. We were coming to Charlotte for the Friday night Toby Keith concert and had been very impressed with the Omni during a previous stay in Charlotte a few years back. We were greeted by a very friendly front desk staff who was kind enough to arrange shuttle transportation for us to and from the concert. We found our room to be very clean and well furnished. When we returned from the concert the bed had been turned down with a mint on the pillow. A very nice touch. On Saturday we spent the day at the rooftop pool. The deck furniture was very nice and comfortable. Fresh towels were brought out throughout the day and room service delivered a delicious lunch to us at the pool. I can't say enough about the friendliness of the staff and the cleanliness of the hotel. We ate Sunday morning breakfast at the restaurant in the hotel and it left a little to be desired, but still wasn't bad. The next time that we visit Charlotte we will return to the Omni for sure!
Very nice 4 star hotel.
I do travel Every Week, and i'm pretty much a Hilton kind of guy, so needles is to say that I have lots of experience with different kinds of hotels.
The Place to Be NYE
My husband & I stayed at the Omni over New Years Eve to attend the events on the square. I was very impressed with the security procedures of the hotel, management presence at the doorways and the cleanliness of the hotel during such a large event. It made my husband & I feel very safe and appreciative of quiet hallways that I did not expect to find during New Years Eve. Our room was perfect because of the view of the square where all the activity was. On New Years Day, we ate the brunch offerred by the hotel, which was a bit expensive at $20 per person, but the food was good.
If I have the need to stay in Charlotte again, I will definitely choose the Omni. It is right in the middle of everything that is Charlotte.
My husband and I were looking to just getaway for a weekend, somewhere close by since we didn't want to have to use "valuable" vacation time. We wanted to stay in at least a 4-star and the Omni looked good to us! We were a little dissapointed that the mall was closed, but there were still plenty of things to do in Uptown Charlotte. Our room was comfortable. I was a little dissapointed in the bed, I had a hard time sleeping on such a "firm"mattress. We enjoyed ourselves very much and were overwhelmed by the staff's helpfulness and hospitality. Overall, a very enjoyable weekend!
The Omni Hotel in Charlotte is a great place to stay the entire staff was friendly and helpful. My husband and I were treated with honesty and respect. We have traveled to Charlotte for the Coca Cola 600 weekend for the past 4 years and never stayed in a place where we were treated like someone. I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the Charlotte area.
Wonderful Time at the Omni
My girlfriend and I stayed at the Omni the weekend of Jan 24th upon arrival I was greeted as soon as I pulled up. My upgraded room was ready for my when I walked into the lobby. the front desk staff and bell/valet was polite and timely especially Josh and Melvin from the bellstaff. I would defiantly recommend the Omni and I will be staying there again in the future.
Weight room on the 2nd floor ... equiptment was broken on several pieces. Just need someone to check it out and fix it. Thanks.
"What's the Point" Explained
"What's the Point" got it right in his title and here's why: what's the point of putting an architecturally cool hotel on the bussiest and most dynamic intersection in Charlotte if you're going to let it go to....?
In desperate need of updating and just a general airing-out. Not deserving of the four star rating on Orbitz and Hotwire. Old, staid style to what should be a cool property. Omni Hotels should be ashamed and That's the Point.
I travel to Charlotte frequently and wish I had read this before my last trip: What's the point? My upgraded $170 room (located in the interesting all-glass corner) was at a comfortable fifty degrees when I arrived. When I stopped shivering, I was able to focus on the peeling wallpaper, the poorly-tended leak from the showerhead that had scored the drywall, the poor tape repair to same (despite the fact that the showerhead still sprayed water overhead), and the dated, somewhat grungy carpet and upholstery. I also noticed the absurdly over-priced refrigerator treats when I had to call for my bags to be delivered to my room (is this something you have to ask for at check-in?). The staff was indifferent to my complaint that the computers in the business center did not work ("They don't care" the clerk said as I got my refund. "They haven't worked in months." "Then why don't you post a sign on the door so that I could avoid wasting thirty minutes?" "It doesn't belong to the Omni." "Yes, you advertise it and I needed it. Who is the 'they' you spoke of when you said 'they don't care.' Let me speak to them." "No.")I sometimes like anonymous corporate hotels, but give me one with a kept room, a decent wine list (four selections of Chardonnay, all of them staid) and a helpful staff. Next time it is back to the Dunhill.[One staff member I contacted prior to my trip was helpful in arranging a lesson in the nearby athletic club and warning me away from the hotel restaurant.] When I told my wife of my trip she reminded me that I should be grateful that I do not have cancer. She is right, but I'll still stay somewhere else. Ross Young
