Charlotte is a beautiful city and the Aloft Hotel at the EpiCentre puts you right where the action is. That can be a good or a bad thing. The EpiCentre is an adult entertainment complex which means the weekends are filled with loud drunk people vomiting in the elevators and running through the hallways. Take my advice and request a room higher up and facing away from the bars. During the week the hotel can be peaceful. The rooms at the Aloft are small but nice and trendy. They are badly designed sound wise though and you can hear everything happening in the halls and in the rooms next to you. The front desk staff is extremely friendly, but the cleaning staff is often flippant about their jobs and will randomly miss rooms for no reason. After specifically talking to the head of cleaning about getting my room cleaned every day they STILL missed my room several times. When they did clean it was very poorly done... basically just making the bed and changing the towels. The BIGGEST design flaw of this hotel though is that the lobby starts on the fifth floor and you have to take an elevator to the lobby and then get off and take another elevator to your room. The first elevator to the lobby is shared with the entire complex so especially on the nights that there were street festivals (there were two the month I was there) it will take you hours to get up just to the lobby (there are no stair options from the first floor). Parking can also be hard to get into when there are festivals. But I think if you are going to go for two days this hotel can be fine. Just choose another option if you are going to stay long term. My feeling is that this is a newer hotel in every way and that in a few years it will be the fantastic hotel it deserves to be.
