2.31km from Alegria Cherokee StoreI chose the Hampton Inn for a few days’ stay to attend a family party. I’d taken an early-morning flight to Charlotte and arrived at the hotel at noon, which was well before normal check-in time, but was immediately assigned a room, which I appreciated, The room was clean and comfortable, convenient to highways but with no road noise that I noticed (on the 5th floor). Bathroom had a large, spacious shower but no tub. I appreciated the large quantity of electrical and charging outlets in several places in the room. There was a refrigerator but no microwave. The hotel is convenient to major highways but I didn't notice any road noise from the 5th floor. The gym was well-equipped and I had it to myself every time I was there. The pool was outdoors so not an option in January! There was a very good selection of food at breakfast- waffles, various types of eggs and sausage, grits and oatmeal on alternating days (with packets of instant oatmeal always available), yogurt, fresh fruit and baked goods. Although the hotel is not convenient to downtown Charlotte, there’s plenty to do within a 5- or 6-mile radius. I needed to find a Best Buy, a Barnes and Noble, a Planet Fitness and a Great Clips- all of them were in the area. I highly recommend Earth Fresh, right down the road from the hotel, for healthy, ready-to-eat (but not cheap!) meals. There are also innumerable restaurants. One maddening aspect of the layout of the area, not under the control of the hotel- you cannot make a left turn onto N. Community Road when leaving the hotel due to a stout median. Allow a little more time than you might expect to make a circle of a few miles to get where you really wanted to be if you needed to turn left. In general, the housekeeping was good- I noticed a shred f plastic in the corner of the hallway by my room and figured it would be there for days because that’s a spot usually missed. It was gone in less than 24 hours. The only miss was the alarm clock in the room. It was set for 4:15 AM. The display on the face clearly noted that it was set for that hour and I didn’t notice it- till it started beeping at the appointed time. This is something the housekeepers should check when a room has been vacated. I’d definitely use this hotel again-the price was reasonable and it was a comfortable stay.
