While we usually stay at the chain hotels to rack up the points, we decided this time to veer off course and try a smaller, boutique hotel and we were not disappointed with Dunhill. We were greeted with the great southern charm by the first the parking attendent then the desk clerk. As we arrived a little late on a Sunday, and we were hungry, the desk clerk helped us to find a place to eat and made the reservation for us. So sweet, so attentive. Arriving in our room, I was a little disappointed at the size of the room (a bit small) and the lighting (a bit dark) but he bathroom was well appointed and roomy and the beds were comfy. I was also concerned about the lack of a security latch on the door and think that there should be a blinder on the peep hole. Our stay included breakfast in the very quaint restaurant that is part of the hotel. The staff in the restaurant were lovely and the food was delicious. The allowed me to linger with my coffee and newspaper for quite some time with no pressure to leave. They even continued to fill my coffee cup. Should I visit Charlotte again, this will be my place to stay.
- 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
