We arrived on 10.17.2014, for a short weekend stay, it's was a little hard to find but well worth it. If you are tired of old, stuffy hotels, than this IS the place to stay. This was our first time staying at this hotel brand, and chose it based on Tripadvisor.com reviews and most important other travelers pictures. Yes, some...

I booked Aloft at the Epicenter for a week long conference based on my experiences staying at Aloft Minneapolis - I liked the hotel's style and staff so much. Then I read the reviews of Aloft Charlotte Epicenter about a week before coming, and I was terrified. I thought "crap this is going to suck....". WRONG! IT WAS AWESOME! I...

This was the first hotel I've stayed at since acquiring a physical disability, so I thought I would write a description of this hotel's accommodations for disabled people. Getting to the rooms requires parking in the deck underneath the hotel, taking one elevator to the fifth floor (which is the lobby/check in), and then taking another elevator to the guest...

My son and I stayed here for a panthers game. Parking here is a nightmare. You have to park in a general deck under the hotel. No where to pull up to leave your bags. The lobby is 5 floors off the street and you have to wait forever to get an open elevator. Waited at least 5-10 minutes. But...

I tried to check in here tonight which is 9/27(Starwoods platinum member), and the security guard became irate over nothing and refused allowing me to check in. This guard was a black guy, late 30's I would never stay here again based solely upon his representation of the Starwoods brand.

Stayed at this hotel while in town for business. Chose this hotel based on good reviews I had read and central location to restaurants and convention center. No rooms available/clean when we checked in so I left baggage and came back two hours later to still not have a room ready. Finally was given a room...handicap accessible...evidently this was all...

This hotel is located as part of the Epicenter in Uptown. You are 3 1/2 blocks from the Charlotte Convention Center and in walking distance of everything downtown including BOA Stadium (Home of the Panthers). You don't need a car here but if you do valet is $25/day. You can walk everywhere. Epicenter is directly below the hotel and has...

If the most important factor is having a short stumble home, this is your place. Literally sits on top of Downtown's stretch of bars, and the drumbeat of techno music is incessant. When the hotel puts a pair of earplugs in each room, then it's too loud. Parking is valet only, at $25 per night, and the place is poorly...
