Historical Traveler Reviews SHERATON CHARLOTTE HOTEL
I stayed at the Blake hotel from May 7 to May 11.
The Bates Hotel not The Blake Hotel
Under renovation. This is the old Adams Mark and it only has had the lobby made over. The rest of the hotel is dark, dingy, dated and not ready for human habitation. Peeling wallpaper, no hot water the first day! $50 dollar holds on your card for incidentals (what incidentals?) No pool, no bar, no restaurant. You better be in good health to make the trip from the garage to the lobby. The place is a complete mess and the employees could care less. Stay away!
I stayed in the Hotel around end of March 06. I just wanted to share my experience regarding the wireless internet service they provide and the way the hotel treated me. The wireless service was supposed to be free in the main lobby. I went to the lobby but the system did not work. After half an hour of waiting and after the front desk contacted the manager, they told me to write my room number on a sheet of paper and then advised me to pay for the service by my credit card and that I would be reimbursed the day after by the manger. A few weeks later I contacted them regarding the fact that I had not yet been reimbursed. I was told it would be taken care of. A few weeks passed again and I contacted them again and the day after the left me a message that I should contact the company that provided the wireless service and ask them for a refund!
Let's start with "overpriced." This hotel is a former Adams Mark undergoing a makeover that is not yet finished. The new decor can be charitably described as "early 60's European moderne." The room furnishings are Holiday-Inn-sturdy-squarish-and-dented, all topped with formica veneer, with the requisite two framed flower illustrations fastened to the wall over the beds (on one of them the matting had slipped).
A LOT Better than I Expected
The hotel is currently under rennovations but we hardly noticed. The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. The front desk staff was very frinedly and helpful. The restaraunt is not open yet and I was very skeptical after reading other reviews but this hotel was very good for the rate.
Friendly staff great pool table
Stayed for a coference.close to the convention center.great bedding .they are in the process of redecorating cant wait to see the end result.Pool table in lobby was a nice touch.Staff was verry helpful and really seemed to care.great value for the money.
Beware! Don't stay at the Blake-
I stayed at the Blake for 3 nights in April 2006. This is one of the worst hotels I've stayed at. The bathroom was filthy, to the point that I wouldn't take a bath in the tub. The beds were horrible; the sheets were so rough that they scratched my skin, and there wasn't even a matress pad on the bed - just a flat sheet. They've redecorated the lobby, but that's as far as any "renovation" has gone. This place is terrible - don't waste your money!
I am a United States Marine Corps combat photojournalist and I recently stayed at the Blake Hotel in Charlotte for the 2006 Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association men's and women's basketball tournament. We were there for recruiting purposes.
A new york style hotel in charlotte, thank God!
The hotel was taken over by a New York Hotel Management company, they renovated the lobby and the rooms but not fully done yet. the beds are great, great decor, and the people are great. looking forward to coming back again.
Reopened after extensive renovations
The Blake Hotel has just reopened under new ownership. Many of the reviews online are from the old Adams Mark Hotel and are not fair to the NEW Blake Hotel.
Yes, its still under renovation...the restaurants are not yet open, the pool is being fixed, carpet and furniture still needs to be replaced in some rooms. But the lobby is lovely, the staff is superb, and the value is great. They have greatly reduced the price to take into account the renovations.
So give it a chance. It is well on its way to being a great hotel.
