Le Méridien Charlotte

Host Hotel

Unlock Charlotte via authentic and thought-provoking experiences at Le Méridien Charlotte. Timeless mid-century design meets chic sophistication at an Uptown hotel recently renovated from street level to skyline. Be within easy reach of Charlotte Convention Center events, Panthers games at Bank of America Stadium and downtown businesses and nightlife. Later, gather, connect and be inspired in Le Méridien Hub, a lush, modern take on the classic hotel lobby. With diverse and interesting restaurants and the evocative City Lights rooftop bar, this is your spot to sip and socialize with like-minded souls. On-the-go guests can stay energized in the state-of-the-art fitness center or slow the pulse with cocktails by our indoor and outdoor pools.
