Whether you’re here for work, to visit family or to play, Charlotte’s cozy accommodations never cease to elevate your stay.
The unbelievable view at Le Méridien Charlotte in Second Ward makes your stay unforgettable. Find a spot atop the swanky, new sky-high lair, City Lights Rooftop Bar. Plop down on one of the mod, candy-colored sofas and chairs, preferably with a cool drink in hand, to enjoy the Queen City’s social scene hard at play. Then bid your stress bon voyage as you watch the sun dance its way down into the stunning Charlotte skyline; it’s showcased in all of its glory from this incredible city perspective.
For a romantic escape, Le Méridien’s in-house eatery, Evoke, is ideal. The seasoned culinary staff serves up deliciously inventive dishes, like squid ink tagliolini, porcini pappardelle gnocchi and fresh crudo, for you to enjoy while cozied into a seat in the retro-chic dining room.
After a dinner that lingers on your palate long after you’ve paid the bill, scoot up to the adjacent cocktail lounge, Longitude 80, for a craft whiskey or international wine. With your perfect pour in tow, stroll into the lobby, dubbed Le Méridien Hub, which features a library nook, books available for communal reading and cozy seating for cultured sipping.
