This was my second visit to RC Charlotte and far superior to my first experience a couple of years ago. On my first visit, we were received with stuffy arrogance at the front desk, but this time, reception was warm and accommodating - thank you Carla. As a Amex FHR guest, we were upgraded to a suite, but I had to inquire - better hotels are fluid in this area, guests shouldn't have to ask for something that is available and they are entitled to.

The suite, while incredibly large, lacked personality - I could have been sitting in any hotel room USA. Ammenities were nice though - adequate toiletries, water, charging stations, a couple of coffee makers (two different kinds for the snick-pickety), iron/board, umbrella, tv's in each room (including one within the bathroom vanity mirror), bath hamper (very nice touch), excellent lighting. I did notice that there was something about the carpeting that irritated my skin (ankle area), could be personal to just me, but worth noting. Breakfast room service was delivered promptly, but the food was Luke warm and mediocre in taste - can't complain, it was complimentary.

The best feature is the lobby bar area - a lively, happening place. While the cocktails are on the pricey side, they were expertly prepared. Service in this area was exceptional, pleasant, knowledgable, quick, and personal. Seating is very comfortable and the area is excellent for socializing, connecting, and people watching. I did notice a couple of poorly soiled couch cushions that were unacceptable for this space. Another lounge located on an upper floor (15th I believe), Urban Sip, seemed equally popular with folks. As a hotel guest, I was a little concerned that anyone could enter the hotel and proceed to this lounge without a security check - unheard of these days. I know of few hotels that permit passage to the hotel guest elevators without either a coded hotel card to operate the elevator or security check of hotel card.

All-in-all, I enjoyed my stay at RC Charlotte, but wonder about the overall value. I recently stayed at the nearby Mariott and found it just as convenient and comfortable. When I pay more for an experience, I'm buying into and expecting more than association cache. High end hotels seems to be struggling in general to differentiate themselves from the pack - this was noticeable at RC Charlotte - I hope they find a real point of premium.

Well 21 years of marriage deserves a well deserved night out at a luxury hotel. We arrived at the hotel and was offered a suite upgrade. The suites were very well appointed, and enjoyed throughly. Down comforters, nice bathroom ammentities, and flat panel tv's everywhere.
We started the day with spa services and a couples massage which was EXCELLENT and needed. The staff was always more than helpful and we really enjoyed our stay.
A premium hotel commands premium pricing, but the name says it all. We had a great time?

Room Tip: Choose a room on the North side of the hotel. Our suite was facing south with a great view, but the...

From the moment you walk in the door, you are served like a king. Wife and I visited one day for a weekend. Took advantage of a double massage and the pool. Excellent atmosphere. If you are ever in Charlotte, you must stop here for a visit.

Room Tip: choose room with a view south.

The food was amazing! We had crab cakes, burgers, sweet potato fries and hot wings, all of which I would never expect to see at a Ritz Carlton however all were done with the highest standards. A bit overpriced but the atmosphere made a great date!

Nice Hotel... But loud, non working Tvs, and air quality was not good in my room. Smells mildewish and I coughed all night. I should have known something wasn't right when they had a letter in the room indicating they were cleaning air conditioners. This hotel is only a couple years old!

Room Tip: If you do decide to stay insist on a high floor in the back of the hotel

This hotel reminds me more of a Boutique Hotel than a Ritz. It's VERY nice with a great indoor pool which is needed for the EXTREME temp shifts. Plus GREAT pool food service.

Rooms very comfortable, roomier than most Ritz Carlton rooms in Big cities. Very well thought out rooms which makes the rooms perfect. They have drawers for unpacking...something that to many hotels have stopped doing.

Not specific to the Ritz Charlotte, more to downtown Charlotte---they need to get later hours on nights of special events. When a Coldplay concert let out at 11PM most restaurants were closed,or closing. NOT good for downtown Charlotte guests.

Special NOTE of thanks to guest services manager, Christian Jaquier, he makes hospitality perfect!
