“Roaches and Rejection”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

I would normally review this Hampton property as average. Physically, it's no worse (and no better) than a million similar properties. Located in downtown Charlotte within easy walking distance of the convention center, the NASCAR Hall of Fame, and the Epi-Centre, one is tempted to book here because of the central location. However, one of our group was rejected by the hotel after booking three rooms and had to stay across town. To add insult to injury, however, when the three who HAD a confirmed reservation tried to check in, the front desk attempted to send away two out of three of us. Upon insisting that we had reservations, they booked one into a smoking room and one into the reserved non-smoking room. The one person who had zero troubles checking in had two roaches (one alive and one dead). So I have to downgrade my review from average to poor. I would recommend this hotel if you love abuse and are willing to pay top dollar for reservations that might not be honored.

Room Tip: I got a room next to the elevator, despite having in my HHonors profile that I don't like this...

I really enjoy staying at Hampton Inn properties for the value. The Charlotte Uptown delivered the same quality guest experience that I have come to expect with Hampton Inn. Friendly and helpful staff!

Everything about this hotel was great! The bed in our room was very comfortable! Shuttle service around the immediate area was perfect, got us everywhere around uptown area. We were there during the 10 days of NASCAR racing and the location was perfect since the NASCAR Hall of Fame was right across the street and they had a 3 day Speed Street celebration with bands right there. Staff was above excellent! You won't be disappointed if you stay here!

Very conveniently located and easily accessible. The hotel is within walking distance of several city locations. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall stay was pleasant and ideal for the business traveller.

I've stayed at this hotel a couple times now. Rooms are always perfect, the night time atmosphere has always been quiet and the staff are always kind, considerate, and helpful. What more could you ask for? Oh yeah, food! Their complimentary breakfast is superb. If you're there several days in a row as I am, they mix up from day-to-day to give you a variety. Can't say enough about these guys!

And if you're in Downtown Charlotte to visit the NASCAR Hall of Fame, it's a very short stroll from this hotel to the Hall's front door and hours of great displays if you're a racing fan as I am. I'm always in Charlotte for work but there is the occasional opportunity to slip over to the Hall for a visit. Never gets old.

This was a really nice hotel - kind of small but a great location. The breakfast and evening recptions were really nice. Right accross the street from the Nascar hall of fame. I wish they had a shuttle from the airport - had to take a taxi $25 flat rate.

The Hampton Inn City Center in Charlotte is conveniently located to everything in downtown Charlotte. It is carefully maintained and has a very nice breakfast buffet included. Parking is convenient and the in town free shuttle is a nice amenity.
