JW Marriott Charlotte, the first JW Marriott property in North Carolina, opened this month in the city’s Uptown neighborhood.
“With the opening of JW Marriott Charlotte, we will make sure every detail is taken care of, so our guests can focus on themselves during their stay,” said Bruce Rohr, global brand leader, JW Marriott. “With thoughtful details throughout the property, holistic programming and an array of wellness offerings, guests will be encouraged to experience every moment to the fullest.”
The design of the 381-key hotel was inspired by the sumptuous textiles of the royal clothing and palaces of Queen Charlotte, the city’s namesake. Defining features and amenities include:
- floor-to-ceiling windows, offering city, stadium and views of greater Charlotte, in all guestrooms and most of the hotel’s 22,000 square feet of meeting and event space;
- Spa by JW® with six private treatment suites, a couples’ treatment room and an Express Treatment pod for business travelers and others on-the-go;
- 24-hour fitness center;
- and open-air rooftop swimming pool with private cabanas.
In addition, the property offers three new dining concepts. Dean’s Italian Steakhouse features a show kitchen that allows diners to see American Wagyu beef and other prime cuts as well as homemade pasta dishes being prepared. Caroline’s Oyster Bar offers coastal seafood. It is anchored by a 360-degree centerpiece bar and eight-seat Carolina-style raw oyster bar. And Aura Rooftop, located on the fifth floor, includes a bar and pool. Its menu features botanical craft cocktails, boutique wines and small bites.
JW Marriott Charlotte is owned and operated by White Lodging. The hotel is the third JW Marriott in White Lodging’s portfolio and is its first property in North Carolina.
The 23-storey building is the focal point of the Ally Charlotte Center, a pedestrian-friendly community developed by Crescent Communities. The full city block includes 750,000 square feet of office space, 30,000 square feet of ground-level retail, a 23,000 square foot public plaza with live oak trees relocated from Johns Island, South Carolina, a space framed by 14 ginkgo trees and a 1,400-space parking garage. Nearby attractions include The Bank of America Stadium and the renovated Charlotte Convention Center.
