We used the Marriott at Southpark for our daughter's Bat Mitzvah party last year. We booked the Morrisoin ballroom downstairs including the foyer and the two adjacent smaller parlors which we used as "quiet" rooms for people who wanted to get away from the noise. For our out of town guests, we booked a large block of rooms at the hotel and we booked the Presidential Suite for Sunday so that we could offer our guests any easy way to do brunch before they left for the weekend.
The hotel is perfect for events like this. e.g. Weddings, business parties, Bar Mitzvah's etc. They have the best in-house Event Staff I've ever seen We worked with Jim Redmond who is the best!. They are reasonabily priced vs. some other hotels in the Charlotte area and overdeliever on everything they promise.
The hotel is not too big, but very nice, so there is a real cozy feel to the place and your guests will really get some extra special treatment. (I've been told that the hotel is planning a renovation of the lobby and restaurant area to make it even nicer -- which is good because the only downside to this hotel right now is that they don't have a large enough lobby area to congregate with family if you are in a group.)
As for location, you can't beat this spot. It is in a quiet nook right across the street from the Southpark Mall -- Charlotte's upscale shopping mall. You don't see or feel the mall from the hotel, but you can walk there without any problem.
The Southpark area is the best place in Charlotte for shopping and dinning. (Even better than uptown.) Though the hotel's inhouse restaurant is OK, you'd be crazy to eat there when there are so many other choices. -- e.g. Go the the Pancake house for breakfast. It's on the other side of the mall. Other dinning options within walking distance include: the Cheesecake Factory, Ruth Chris Steakhouse, Marggionos, Brio's, Panera bread, Zebra, PF Chang, the Palm, Boading Chineese, Harpers, Uptsteams, Dean and Deluca, McDonald's, Burger King, Bojangles, Cyros Sushi bar, Rooster's etc. etc. etc (Just too many to name!)
If you are traveling during June, you will be in for an extra special treat. -- On Friday nights in June, the Charlotte Symphony puts on free concerts in Sympthony park, which is adjacent to the Mall. It's like an evening at Tanglewood, without the long drive!
If you need to get to uptown, it's an easy 20 minute drive. There are also some other great activities all withing 30 minutes including : Carowinds Amusement Park, the U.S. Whitewater rafting center, Zip lining, Mountain biking, Kyaking, Hiking, Golf, Golf and more golf, tennis, etc. etc.
