We absolutely loved our stay at Refuge. Communication re: check in and out was perfect and everything went smoothly. Our room was adorable - great decor - and had everything we needed. Bed was very comfortable. We went to the cocktail lounge (Humbug), as well, and loved it. Really friendly bartenders and delicious drinks.
Great location in Charlotte. Lots of places to walk to. I went record shopping at Lunchbox Records, had a great ice cream at Two Scoops creamery, grabbed a delicious rum cocktail at Royal Tot, visited the Thirsty Beaver Saloon which reminded me of my childhood, and had some great BBQ at Midwood Smokehouse for dinner. And that's just what's nearby! Refuge had very comfortable rooms, a great chill vibe, free parking and it was just so wonderful to get a delicious cocktail at the bar onsite before going to my room. I'd definitely stay here again.
We stayed in the proper room for 4, which was comfortable enough for our family of 6. Two bathrooms and a beautiful hot, good pressured shower and plenty of outlets and shelf space for phones/drinks / etc. The Mexican restaurant next door has delicious food/drinks and great prices. So much parking in the back - and it came in handy because we were traveling with a second vehicle pulling a trailer, at the end of our week-long road trip. Additionally, the lobby has a table and ample seating to gather in, and the hotel is a short walking distance to coffee shops, delicious eateries, and the local transit line. I almost didn't want to review this place, for fear that this gem of a find won't be readily available next time we visit! It's a GREAT find and we definitely would stay here again. OH! Should also add that even though the hotel is not your typical hotel - unstaffed - Jay was so helpful and kind and was quick to respond to text/phone calls with my questions before and during our stay.
Great experience staying at Refuge! The check-in process was seamless. The room was very clean and complete with original art pieces and a spacious shower with great water flow. The complimentary coffee bar in the common area came in clutch the morning after exploring the Plaza Midwood neighborhood the night before. Walkable to so many fun things to do! Would recommend Refuge to anyone visiting Charlotte.
Very unique and beautiful space that Charlotte needs. Knowing that this is just conceptual hotel and the real deal is coming up soon, were very excited about that. We booked 2 nights for my mother in law in this place when she was in town from Seattle area, she loved it so much.
