This is especially important given the big year ahead for Charlotte with new hotels like The Ritz-Carlton, museums, and attractions coming on board,” says CRVA Senior Director of Marketing and Visual Communications Gina Sheridan. “And thanks to the wealth of luxury destinations and attractions in Charlotte that cater to this audience, a partnership with The Ballantyne Hotel was a natural fit for this sweepstakes.
