Picture yourself lounging poolside on a sun-kissed deck that peers out over the city, which hums beneath you. All it takes is a room key to the Omni Charlotte Hotel to make this rooftop dream a reality. Sip a cocktail from the specialty pool bar, open Friday to Sunday, noon to 8 p.m. (weather permitting) as you soak, or grab your mat and perfect your form at complimentary yoga by the pool, hosted Sunday and Tuesday mornings until Labor Day. Not into yoga? Get your blood flowing in the 24-hour, fully-equipped on-site fitness center or avail yourself of complimentary access to the Charlotte Athletic Club, which is connected to the hotel. Here, you can enjoy fitness classes, a sauna, massages and more.
When it’s time to refuel, treat yourself to farm-to-table fare at Trade Restaurant & Bar. Pair the bone-in, bourbon-brined pork chop or chicken and waffles with a local brew or a glass of fine wine. And be sure to check out the latest addition to the Omni’s culinary scene, Essex Bistro & Bar. Essex, which features a casual atmosphere with upscale eats, is built into the Omni in Bank of America Plaza and opened its doors in August.
Book your stay at the Omni Hotel Charlotte.
