Hilton Opens New Dual-Brand Property in Charlotte
Located Near SouthPark Mall, Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites by Hilton Together Welcome Guests Visiting the State’s Major Commercial Hub
CHARLOTTE, N.C. and MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton (NYSE: HLT) today announced the opening of its newest hotel, the dual-branded Hilton Garden Inn Charlotte/SouthPark and Homewood Suites by Hilton Charlotte/SouthPark, bringing a total of 270 new rooms to the beautiful SouthPark area. Located in the state's major commercial hub, Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites by Hilton Charlotte/SouthPark will help welcome the 26.8 million travelers visiting the Charlotte region annually*.
"Boasting attractions like Freedom Park, BB&T Ballpark, the NASCAR Hall of Fame and several museums contributing to the city's versatility and vibrancy, the Charlotte region attracts visitors for many reasons," said John Bensing, general manager of the dual-brand property. "Whether visiting for business or leisure, our dual-brand property provides diverse accommodations for visitors with varying needs, and our convenient location and value-added amenities deliver savings and quality that today's guests demand."
Developed and owned by a joint-venture comprising of a Crosland and Tate partnership; two long-time Charlotte families involved in local real estate for decades, and Chartwell Hospitality, a Nashville based hotel owner/developer/operator. Both properties will be managed by Chartwell Hospitality LLC. Hilton Garden Inn and Homewood Suites by Hilton Charlotte/SouthPark are both located in the affluent SouthPark neighborhood at 4808 Sharon Road, offering guests convenient access to SouthPark Mall, one of the top malls in the country, which provides a variety of shopping, dining, and entertainment options nearby. The Spectrum Center, where the Charlotte Hornets play, and Bank of America Stadium, which is home to the Carolina Panthers, is also less than seven miles away.
The dual-brand concept creates enhanced and larger communal areas than what would be standard at a stand-alone property, benefiting both business and leisure travelers. The hotel has two distinct lobbies and dining areas - each catering to the needs of their respective guests - as well as a 24-hour fitness center and outdoor heated pool for guests to unwind. The hotel also offers 2,500 square feet of flexible meeting space that can accommodate up to 120 people, equipped with audio-visual equipment and various catering options.
Hilton Garden Inn allows guests to dine on-property at The Garden Grille and Bar®, which offers a full cooked-to-order breakfast and dinner, cocktails**, and evening room service. The Pavilion Pantry® is open 24 hours and features a complete selection of salty snacks, sweet treats, cold beverages, and frozen, microwaveable packaged items. Guests receive signature brand amenities and services, including complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the hotel, 24-hour business center with Print SpotsTM remote printing and in-room "hospitality center" with a mini fridge, microwave oven as well as a Keurig coffee maker.
