CHARLOTTE MEETINGS

CHARLOTTE HOTEL DEVELOPMENT

As one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S. and with an increase in business and leisure travel each year, the hotel market in Charlotte—the largest city in the Carolinas—is one of the most active in the country.

CHARLOTTE IS BUILDING FOR BETTER MEETINGS

Approximately 55 new hotels (7,070 rooms) are slated for the Charlotte region through 2022, including eight hotels (1,762 rooms) in Center City and the immediate vicinity. Four new hotels have opened in the Charlotte region since January 2019 bringing the total number of hotels in the region to 379 (40,924 rooms). By the end of 2019, 18 new hotel properties (2,032 rooms) are slated to open in the region.

In 2018, the Charlotte region welcomed nine new hotels (1,078 rooms) including two in Center City—a dual property featuring AC Hotel Charlotte City Center and Residence Inn Charlotte City Center (300 rooms)—bringing the current total to 25 hotels (5,601 rooms) that are within walking distance of the Charlotte Convention Center.
