“Grande Dame of Charlotte”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

In an uptown district that is new, new, new, the Dunhill holds court as she has since 1929, in the ultra-convenient location of North Tryon St. at Sixth. All the employees are friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and comfortable, and they supply the mini-fridge with free Coke products and water. Our room (402) was a double queen, and though near the elevator, was nice and quiet. The shape of the room was odd; long and narrow, creating the occasional bottleneck, but the bathroom was nicely updated and the beds were great. No on-site gym, but they have an agreement with a workout club close by. We didn't try the restaurant, but it seemed always popular. There's a cool bar in the lobby, and a baby grand piano which is sometimes played. Perfect location and easy parking in the attached garage - $12/day.

Beautiful historic hotel within walking distance of museums, art galleries, nightlife, restaurants and so much more. Pleasant welcoming comments from the staff and helpful suggestions. They were exceptional, from booking the room to the 'hope you enjoyed your stay'. Clean, quiet and luxurious ~ from bed to bath ~ with attention to every detail to make it a comfortable stay. Sunday brunch in the hotel dining room was a delight. I definitely will make a return visit. So much to see in Charlotte!

Room Tip: The rooms that I saw were all well-appointed with somewhat different decor.

Stayed here one night for play across the street at Blumenthal auditorium. Even on a cold, rainy day, everything we needed was within walking distance. Stayed in a room overlooking the street and downtown. It was a little noisy, but the sounds of the city added to the ambiance. Furnishings and paintings gave it an historic and comfortable feel but had all the conveniences we needed. Staff was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very good.

My wife and I stayed at the Dunhill for the Belk Bowl. From the time we arrived until our departure, we were treated with kindness and professionalism. The front desk was very helpful and got us into our room a little early. The room was clean and well suited for our needs. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very clean with plenty of hot water. Our complimentary breakfast was very good and a wonderful surprise. Parking did cost us $12 but was located directly behind the hotel. We will definitely visit the Dunhill again.

I stumbled upon this hotel when I had a problem at the hotel I was staying at and they recommended the Harvest Moon restaurant for breakfast, which is the restaurant at the Dunhill. When I walked into the lobby the old world charm of the Dunhill was very comforting and I asked about room availability. Luckily they had a room at a very reasonable rate, so I checked out of the other place and moved to the Dunhill, and I am glad that I did. The staff is extremely accommodating and helpful, the room and bed in particular very comfortable, and the location is terrific. We were in town for the Saints-Panthers game and the hotel is within walking distance of the stadium (they also offer a shuttle around town which we didn't use but is of course convenient), and even closer to EpiCenter and the Time Warner Cable Arena where the Bobcats play. The Harvest Moon restaurant offered tasty fare and we even got a complimentary breakfast with our stay. Quaint, safe, comfortable, elegant, this hotel really has it all and I would definitely recommend it and stay again while visiting Charlotte. A+!

The Dunhill is a great little boutique hotel located in the center of Uptown Charlotte. It is very quaint with a lot of character compared to the typical brand name hotels. The hotel is walking distance to every thing you could want or need Uptown. We were in town for the Monday Night Football game and it was a very easy walk to the stadium. Every employee I encountered was very helpful, polite, and enthusiastic. Great service overall.

Our room was very clean and the bathroom very spacious. Lots of room in the shower, and the bathroom was adequately lit. The mattress was pretty soft, which I don't prefer, and did not sleep well. However, the room (10th floor) was very quiet with minimal street noise and virtually no noise from other guests. Overall, we were happy with our stay and glad that we chose to stay at the Dunhill!

I stayed at the Dunhill recently and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Since I visit Charlotte fairly often on business, I've probably been here on half a dozen tomes over the pas year or so. Although this is not a 4/5 star place like to Ritz (where I also stay) it is more than adequate. The staff are always polite and helpful and the rooms, although not huge, are fine - although I do sometimes wish they's ditch the 'brown' decor. What made it for me this time though was the barman who couldn't have been more friendly - if only all hotels had such an asset! As also noted, the location is very good if you are in Charlotte on business, since it places you firmly in the centre of the city.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Decades before The Dunhill Hotel would open, local architect Louis Asbury Sr. was entranced by the great Italian craftsmen who created cathedrals famous for their soaring, elegant roof lines. Today, The Dunhill Hotel stands distinct on the Charlotte skyline, an amalgam of American, British, and Italian influences, something those with an eye for period detail can detect. Opened in 1929 as the Mayfair Manor apartment hotel, with half of its original 100 rooms permanent residences, today's Dunhill Hotel is a thoughtful evolution. A full restoration was recently completed, and various on-going aesthetic improvements all share a common goal--to celebrate the original vision of Mr. Asbury, with a nod to the needs of the modern traveler. ... more   less
