I thought I'd do a quick review of the Four Points Charlotte. I was a little concerned as I drove towards the hotel because the area doesn't look so great. There's a check-cashing store on each corner, a Churches Chicken, a bail bonds, the train goes directly next to the hotel and there were about 6 men meandering around the corner. The area looks to be somewhat industrial. The hotel looks old from the outside, but is very well maintained on the inside. The staff is friendly and welcoming - but a bit slow on check-in. We're definitely in the south now. Once I got to my room, it was very large King Suite with a lovely view of the train tracks and some rooftops. Since it's just a quick overnight, I don't really care about the view. The room was very clean - with one exception - the stained drapes. The bed was so comfy, I wish I could have taken it home - but I'm guessing they would have seen me sneaking that out of the lobby. The only real complaint is that the air conditioner is very loud when it runs. It actually made is hard to fall asleep at first. If you're on a quick stop in CLT, I would recommend this hotel.
