New Uptown Charlotte Hotels Opening Soon
Two new hotels are coming to Uptown Charlotte.
Tampa, Florida-based McKibbon Hospitality's dual-branded hotel will open in February, The Charlotte Observer reports. The AC Hotel and Residence Inn will total 300 rooms and feature retail and meeting space and a rooftop bar in the 22-story tower. McKibbon Hospitality is partnering with noted Asheville, North Carolina, chef and restaurateur Peter Pollay on the rooftop bar, which will be independently run and open to the public. High-rollers will be able to rent a 1,300 SF, two-bedroom “super suite” adjacent to the bar on the 22nd floor. The hotel will be at the EpiCentre, a sprawling, mixed-use entertainment complex in Uptown Charlotte.
Another new Uptown Charlotte project is Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel, scheduled to open this fall. The 18-story, 217-room hotel is next to Romare Bearden Park and will feature a 1,400 SF rooftop bar, 4K SF ballroom and an Italian-influenced restaurant with North Carolina craft beer and wood-fired dishes. Other touches include yoga mats in every room, hosted wine and bourbon parties and complimentary bike rentals. Balfour Beatty Construction is building the project.
