      I was in early due to Tammy having to drive back to PA and I didn't want to hang at our friends house. Checking out when I arrived was an CIAA Basketball Tournament. Westin front of house staff could not have been more polite. Bellman after realizing that I was checking in and being dropped off came out to help me. Front of house staff put my stuff in storage, they got me on the internet and now I am enjoying the golf channel and sipping tea.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Westin Charlotte

      It was so great

      from

      This hotel was so amazing. Really nice rooms with wonderful beds (very important!), wonderful and friendly staff and most important a GREAT restaurant (great atmosphere, even better food!) .... only one little thing bothered me: you have to pay for a swimming pool and/ or the fitness area ... but then again : it was great.

      Excellent customer service

      from

      From the moment our taxi dropped us off at the front doors of the Westin, we were greeted with nothing but smiling faces. The beds are truly "heavenly," and we had a great view of the city. When we entered our room, we discovered a bottle of wine and chocolate-covered strawberries in our room. When we called down to the front desk to see if they were complimentary, we were told that someone else was actually supposed to be in that room and couldn't make it. They told us to go ahead and enjoy the strawberries and wine free of charge. Later, one of the workers went out of his way to help us locate a State Park that he wasn't familiar with. Everybody was very friendly and helpful. I would definitely come back!

      Awesome Service!!!

      I'm actually writing this review from the Westin so my stay isn't even over yet. Every staff member we've come into contact with has been VERY, VERY friendly and helpful. As an example, I asked one of the valet attendants for directions to one of the local malls and within 10 seconds a preprinted map with reverse directions for the ride home was in my hands. The beds are to die for and the view of the city from the upper floors is breathtaking. As a sidenote, I walked over to Pizzeria Uno's a block away and found it mediocre at best. We will definitely stay at the Westin again whenever we visit Charlotte!

      Great place to stay !

      from

      We were there on business & had a real good time.

      The hotel was great & the people were friendly.

      The bed was very heavenly!

      Thank you for such a great visit.

      We will stay there again if given the chance.

      Thank you!

      Stayed here 3-4 times; wouldn't stay anywhere else in Charlotte!

      from

      I've stayed in half a dozen Charlotte hotels and find this by far the best - luxurious rooms and bathrooms, love that bed, and the service is always so friendly I almost hate to go back to the northeast :-) I've seen some of the negatvie reviews here and wonder if it's just hit or miss with getting "good" staff...everyone from the doormen, to the restuarant staff, to the desk folks, to the people who work in the little store off the lobby are always so helpful and pleasant. The Ember Grill is great; creative food artfully prepared. It's a short walk to the main downtown areas or its always easy to get a cab with the helpful doormen. It blows away the others in the price range - Marriott, Omni, etc. Go for the Heavenly Bed alone! :-)

      Overrated

      from

      I stayed at the Westin recently and was unimpressed with what I saw.

      While the rooms themselves are luxurious and the beds are comfortable, the maid service was slow to say the least. What was worse, I was woken from a nap during the mid afternoon and told that this was the only time I could have the beds turned down, even though i had asked they come in the morning while I was out. You also have to pay to use the workout facilities and pool, which seems a little odd for such a high class hotel. Also, the night staff is substantially friendlier than the morning staff. Perhaps one of my biggest concerns was my credit card, which was left behind at the lobby restaurant. After being informed by the staff that my card had been passed along to security, it took two days before anyone got back to me. Finally upon checkout I was informed that they did not have my card-- only to be called two days later that they did in fact have it. I had already cancelled it and asked that they tore it up. An overrated hotel- nice rooms, but that's about it

      Great Beds/Terrible Service

      from

      Room was clean and bed so comfy. Service in the dining room was spotty and the help had an attitude. Was a long wait for simple breakfast but the food was great. Pool looked great but the doors were locked before it was suppose to close for the night. Disappointing. Thought a nice place like the Westin would be careful about sloppy staff.

      Excellent Service

      from

      The physical attributes of the hotel were amazing, everything was clean and felt like walking through an art gallery, but the service was outstanding. Employees treated me and my girlfriend as if we were their personal friends...knew our names and were very considerate! A must visit!

      Pretty Awesome

      from

      Stayed here for one night 11/21/03.

      Booked one of the corner rooms in the hotel and the room was great. The bathroom was huge and included a stand-in shower along with the tub behind a glass partition. Huge windows on two sides and of course, the Heavenly Bed remains one of the best aspects of this chain.

      Location is excelletn as well. A short 5-6 block walk to the good restaurants and great nightlife and bars. Would definitely stay here again.

      Destined for Greatness

      from

      Flawless. From the "Heavenly Bed" to the waaaay cool lobby and bar to the fitness center, this is Westin at its best. Sure to be ranked as one of Charlotte's finest.

      In about 9 days I am leaving for San Ramon, Costa Rica. I will be in Costa Rica for five months as I spend a semester studying abroad.

While it is going to be hard to leave my family and the people I care about I know that this adventure will allow me to grow as a person. I am eager to improve my spanish skills and experience the culture. I will be leaving January 16th! I will ...

      December 26th Today was supposed to be a relaxing day of packing, with a night spent in Louisville, but things turned out a little differently. After packing, repacking, and worrying about the 50lb weight limit and even running back once to retrieve my sunglasses from Logan's house, the trip seemed to be panning out according to plan. However, my adventure started earlier than I thought when my loving and worry wart mother caught a mistake in ...

      The next morning was busy. We made breakfast while Chris got some last minute work done and then did a final load of laundry. We wanted to clean the van a bit before we left since the next chance we get will be a month from now. We got out the vacuum and the Windex and scrubbed it from top to bottom. Cooking in the van causes the windows t get covered in this weird starchy crystals that are impossible to get off. I have been slowly cleaning ...

      We went to breakfast with Zach (I got to ride shotgun in Roxy, and got to witness Southern friendliness firsthand), where we all over-ordered and basically died from our food consumption. Visited Whole Foods. Took a trip down the halls of PDS (far too nice), and then hung out at his house. We went to a Charlotte Knights game with his mom (his dad wasn't feeling well), which was super fun. Then we got dinner at a place with great biscuits, and just hung out some ...
