Travel Blogs from Charlotte
Yes, I know the title should read "Westward Ho", but I Cannot find a way to correct it. Be patient with me this is my first travel blog.
This is the beginning of an Airstream trip to the Southwest. We have made a number of shorter trips in the several years we have had the trailer, but this is to be the first real trip from our home in Lincolnton, NC.
We did not sleep well or long last night, trying to ...
... 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 ...

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 ...
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 ...

In short, we could have stayed up all night talking. That first night we got the kids settled, caught up with Rebecca and Caroline and stayed up with Kim and Brian too late. Rebecca is a gamecock like her parents and Annie I believe. Frances was at Chapel Hill and Annie was in New ...

Historical Traveler Reviews SpringHill Suites Charlotte Airport
The hotel overall is in good condition and the staff friendly but there are some problems. There was a big wrinkle in the carpet as you walked into the room that in the dark could easily be a trip hazard. On Saturday morning, the breakfast area was just barely stocked. There was no juice and many other amenities were missing as well. I was able to get coffee and a bagel (still meeting the Continental Breakfast advertisement), but I heard other guests comment on the lack of options after having much more to choose from earlier in the week.
I selected Springhill Suites based on the reviews on this site - and they are spot on. The room was perfectly clean - seemed brand new, the staff is unbelievably friendly and helpful and the shuttle driver (James) is about the nicest person you'll ever run across.
When I checked in, James offered to follow me to the rental car dropoff so that I could have less to worry about the next morning. As a result, I saved some money on the car and got an extra 30 minutes of sleep in the morning.
You won't be disappointed with this hotel.
Great value for little money
This is an airport hotel. We stayed 2 nights one week apart. They have comfortable, but not luxurious junior suites-modern and clean. Free internet in the lobby with a good terminal. I didn't bring a laptop. The breakfast was excellent with juices, cereals, eggs etc. I was amazed at the value for only $84/night.
Loved the springhill suites charlotte airport
just got back from a night at the springhill. very clean, lovely front desk personnel, very spacious. room decor was so cheerful, and the bed and bedding extremely comfortable. even my mother, who never can get to sleep, slept like a log! has free internet service in rooms, and even a computer in the lobby if you didn't bring yours. all in all, a great place to stay. TRIP ADVISOR WORKS!
Very nice and quite reasonable !
I thought this hotel was quite nice for a weekend business trip. It certainly isn't the Ritz, but for $79/night I think you would have a hard time finding a nicer hotel.
I liked the heated indoor pool and jacuzzi. Also, the free breakfast was a cut above average.
Nice people and very clean.
Very much a hotel for the business traveller. It was handy for the airport and the rooms were comfortable and had a refrigerator and a bureau for that much needed laptop. Bathroom was a great size and loved the seperate seating area with seperate tv although when the kids were watching tv from the bed you could hear both tv's which was annoying. Complimentary coffee and tea in the reception area which was great and although breakfast was very simple there was a very pleasent atmosphere. Staff were very friendly. Although we never needed to use the complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport, it had been one of the reasons I chose this hotel. It is not located close to downtown Charlotte and is pretty far from any of the night life but for the short term it was a very good choice.
We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights the staff was wonderful, the rooms were very clean and it was close to everything.
We needed a hotel close to the airport as we had a very early flight. We had reserved a room at a hotel up the street (La Quinta) but when we arrived knew immediately that we couldn't stay there (I would NOT feel safe staying here, and it looked like a major dump).
My family and I stayed at the Springhill Suites Charlotte Airport for one night during a short weekend to North Carolina. I called for an airport shuttle as soon we arrived into Charlotte. The shuttle arrived within 10-minutes, the driver was very friendly, and helpful. Checking into the hotel was very fast and efficient. There was only one desk clerk working the counter, he acted bored, non-talkative, answered all of our questions with a sigh, and presented himself as if checking us in was a chore.
Very nice comfy rooms. Not only equipped for the business traveler, but also for the vacationer. Close to the airport, used the shuttle service - which was great. Breakfast included and for a great price. Staff were all very friendly! Would stay again and again.
