My wife and I did not stay at this central urban hotel, but visited friends at two locations in the building, ate at the restaurant, and visited the bar. What a lovely, relatively small hotel: elegant, old-world style decor and furnishings reminiscent of an 19th century English hotel. Everything bespoke "class." The staff almost rushed to meet us at each turn, the waitstaff at "Asbury," the adjoining dining room, was superior--friendly, at hand, and eager to please.
The food at the "Asbury" was excellent, if pricey. We sat outside and ordered, a la carte, the buckwheat pancakes, eggs and grits for breakfast. Very good, though it is strange that two pancakes ordered together cost $10 and separately $4 per! We ordered one each of the plate-sized discs, the two of which would have been sufficient for three people. The passing parade of exercisers. tourists, children, and an array of characters was a delight on a pleasant Charlotte, NC Sunday morning.
- 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
