Britni Laboy

LOVED this hotel and wish there were more Canopy chains around!!! The facility was extremely clean, well decorated, and had a very warm and inviting, cozy feel with the holiday decor/vibe I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my stay with my boyfriend and our dog – from the convenience of check in/out, the layout of the hotel, the luxurious feel of the hotel (decor, room set up and bath amenities), convenience and ability to travel and stay with our dog, and the DELICIOUS food and drinks at the lobby restaurant – Fine & Fettle I had cocktails at night and enjoyed a WONDERFUL breakfast the following morning

Everything was fabulous!!! Thank you Canopy/Hilton!!!

Maiya Williams

Comfortable bed, clean room, nice bathroom I enjoyed the common areas, especially the outdoor seating Tried to enjoy the restaurant but they weren’t serving the dinner menu due to lack of kitchen staff

Was able to order for lunch & a personal pizza took over an hour, & it was disgusting The guy at the bar was really sweet & comped it, plus he made great drinks Valet was slow & unprofessional It also seemed unnecessary to have mandatory valet when there was an empty parking garage right outside the hotel where they had my car parked anyway I understand hotels being pet friendly but they really need to separate the floors I heard puppies crying & dogs barking all day & night If I could guarantee being on a floor free of pets I would definitely stay again I loved the room

This hotel is so chic! The ambiance is amazing The staff was polite, courteous, helpful and had extraordinary customer service The room was beautiful

I also appreciated that the hotel was very clean and it is obvious they pay extra attention to the cleanliness and overall sanitation I will definitely stay here on my next trip to Charlotte

Tamara Whatley

I really enjoyed my stay From the greeting at the front desk to the beautiful hotel The room was nice and clean

We went to bar and lounge on the second floor for drinks the drink were good, the only thing is they stop serving food early in the day It would have been nice to At least be able to get some wings or something I would stay again We also had breakfast on the second floor food decent but a little pricey for breakfast

KiMya Alston

The hotel overall was great Front desk was nice during check-in and check-out Very informative when needed

We stayed during Valentine’s Day weekend and was told it was sold out but you wouldn’t have known because it was quiet all night Parking was available in garage not too far away but tight fit We ended up parking on the street since it was closer Only thing I wasn’t a fan of is that the bathroom wasn’t completely private in the room

Feedback From Real Customers


We stay at Marriotts about 20x per year and now thinking of looking elsewhere Marriott cutting cost so much that the bath area pictured was like a Motel 6! King bed was comfortable but tiny sink area suitable for only 1 person/room and awful glaring industrial lighting No way for a female traveler to put on makeup

There was a long mirror on opposite wall but lighting just as bad Coffee maker also didn’t work and bistro offerings have gone downhill – microwaved mush

Brian Mangual

We had a terrible stay here We found a cockroach on our bed and despite notifying the staff we have still not received our refund 3 weeks later The night we stayed here the hotel was not even 1/4 booked and the staff roomed us on the parking lot side facing a gas station in lieu of the much quieter back side

I do not recommend this hotel because they clearly don’t know what they’re doing and have a cockroach problem If I could post a picture I would but stay away from this one

Krystal Brown

I loved this hotel! It was super clean and the staff was friendly and helpful The hotel was so beautiful! It even had a fire pit downstairs They offered a complimentary breakfast as well

Parking was annoying because it was packed and hard to find a park Also, there was no smoking rooms Aside from that, this hotel was amazing and a good price I will definitely be staying again!!

Noah Chauvin

Stayed here for a 3 night stay The Hotel was amazing! The location was great, there were great restaurants within the Ayrsley town area that are a few minutes from the hotel that were delicious The room and hotel was very modern and clean

Excellent service! I booked a reservation through a third party vendor and they botched it Tyshion was super helpful in working with the third party to get us the correct rooms on a sold out night His patience and understanding were top notch and I thank him greatly

I’m traveling with older family and young children, glad we stayed The rooms were clean and comfortable!

Shannon Carney

Above and beyond helpful I was traveling alone for work and broke a wheel on my suitcase My husband sent me new wheels but didn’t have the right tools to replace the wheels

The front desk put me in contact with the chief engineer at the hotel and he brought his tools and replaced my wheels!! Such a life saver!! Great experience and excellent customer service at this Courtyard Highly recommend

Jennifer Melles

Made a reservation for a room for a certain room type Noted in the confirmation that I can’t change or modify the reservation after a given date On the date of check-in, I see that the hotel has modified my reservation for a room type I did not choose or agree to pay

No notification at all So, I can’t modify or cancel since it’s after the give time-frame Now it’s the date of the reservation and I have no other options Horrible customer experience let alone unethical business practices

Booked here for Mother’s Day to have the kids swim and it was so peacefulThe indoor pool was perfect being that it was chilly The kids had the pool to themselves the entire time

The room was almost perfect, A spill was on the door and was very noticeable but the comfort of the beds took that away from my attentionA great place to relaxGreat service checking in and outWill return back soon!

Joyfully His

We’ve stayed here several times, and we love that we know what to expect There are no surprises or disappointments like you would find in an Airbnb The rooms are ALWAYS clean, the staff is ALWAYS kind and friendly, and the stay is ALWAYS reasonably priced

This hotel experience is what all hotel stays should be like Aloft sets the standards for sure We did have a small problem with the pool, but in all the times we’ve stayed, that’s happened once

Troyshawn Downey

Aloft is usually my go – to hotel when I travel My first time at this upscale location The area is beautiful & I just had to come try it out for myself

The lady at the bar was so sweet & the drinks were definitely on point I think her name was Tori The folks at the front were also nice & helpful Downstairs seemed clean and well put together, room seemed that way as well until i happen to wake up in the middle of the night and use the bathroom I happen to look down under at the lil cubby area and see some Polo Ralph underwear, wife beater, & some other underwear which is the nastiest thing ever I’ve never dealt with that even at some of the more less expensive hotels I’ve stayed at Not all but this Aloft has really lost some points on this one Makes me wonder how clean the room actually is cause apparently housekeeping didn’t do a thorough clean/check on the room if that nasty mess was left behind GET IT TOGETHER ALOFT!!!!!!

Christi Shepherd

My husband, my dog, and myself stayed here for 3 days/2 nights Although we did not utilize the pool it looked clean and smelled like the ocean The elevators did not smell bad like in most places, the hallways were very clean

The room was immaculate well stocked, and in great condition The bed was the bed was a little on the harder side but that is just a matter of my preference The hotel staff was friendly and helpful, the restaurant was clean The exterior was clean We had no issues with any of the staff while we were there Our dog felt welcomed and comfortable All-in-all a wonderful experience and I would definitely visit again

Dom Gray

Horrible! Writing a very honest review to warn people of the state of this hotel When booking I did not get an accurate feel of how bad things are here or I would’ve made sure to avoid this hotel I was very close to leaving and finding better accommodations which is a 1st and I have stayed at various star hotels

Pro- Excellent locationCons- Cleanliness, amenities, air quality on some floors, but 1st and foremost Cleanliness!Our 1st room was so dirty that it seemed like all they did was change the sheets The floors were sticky and nothing was cleaned They did not supply enough towels for our 4 guests and when asked we never received any new ones Thankfully my children were visiting with family at another hotel for a couple of days so we didn’t have to keep begging for common items For this price they should be ashamed to even welcome guests into this place Of course there is a shortage of staff (everywhere) but if you cannot even clean the rooms properly they should limit guests to the staff available Our 2nd room was at least acceptable enough for us to finish off our stay without leaving We considered the pool when booking but would not dare step foot in there The water did not look clean and there was a sock that I’m sure will still be there once we check outThe icing on the cake was housekeeping knocking on the door at 9am on checkout day For this price please book somewhere else unless the location is all you are worried about

Chrisopigi Maggiorou

It was very good when I was there 7 years ago This year I went again, I believe it is very expensive for what they giveThe food it was good

Many closed area at the inside garden area, it was open only the bar area Very good tips the security at the parking lot at night time Very good the girl with the long black hair at the bar at night shift

Here now and was supposed to be staying next weekend Canceling and will never book this location on our frequent trips to the area Found whole Oreos on the floor, candy behind pillow on chair, TV won’t turn off (had to unplug it), bathroom surfaces are sticky, shower dirty, table dirty, scratched up pans, dishes not put away, stained coffee pot

Old, dirty, unprofessional staff to top it off No manger on site Stay elsewhere!!! We are not picky travelers, and travel often, but this is not anywhere near Marriott standards! So disappointing!

Tatiana K

The front desk staff during the day was the worst I’ve ever come across Literally not even a smile upon arrival, not from anyone including the manager The food was unpalatable

The reservation system online doesn’t sync with the reservation system in this hotel I was forced to leave and go to a Hilton The only polite front office staff was the gentleman who works in the evening He’s the only reason the hotel received 2 stars

Ciara Williams

Overall the hotel is fairly new and in a good quiet area The cleanliness could be better If the shower isn’t cleaned often, it will deteriorate over time

This was my first time using the bonvoy marriott app and the keyless option took a while to update There’s an option to put in service request which can be confusing because you have to go get the items you are requesting Other than that, my stay was decent I carry shower shoes (flip flops) because hotel shower/tubs aren’t always sanitized Someone had a key to my husband’s and I room while we were sleeping I woke up because I heard them trying to get in I called down stairs and the manager apologized, and that was it

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at this hotel Everything was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the staff was nice and accommodating The indoor pool is nice, along with the gym and bar in the hotel

They do not have a continental breakfast, but there’s at least 2 or 3 different restaurants in the same parking lot that you can get breakfast at I’d definitely stay here again! Close to downtown and the suburbs

Jess Sterling

Where to start! First off I’d like to thank the staff, especially Emma You made our short stay worth the 9 hour drive! The politeness to our children and making sure everything was taken care of for us Taking the time to check out each kid( individually, bc they had to use their own money) every time they wanted a snack 🤦🏻‍♀️ We appreciate your kindness and if we are in the area again will definitely be back to stay with you

Exceptionally clean, quick with requests, and the breakfast was delicious! The young girl at the breakfast station, I didn’t get her name, but my Starbucks white chocolate mocha was better than I’ve had at Starbucks ❤️

Matthew Greenbaum

The rooms and property are pretty nice The evening staff wasn’t particularly helpful during check-in He did not know how to link two reservations or enter a late check out, and he didn’t acknowledge Ambassador status

The day staff was more helpful, but are hamstrung by unaccomodating management Further, there is no complimentary breakfast

Feedback From Real Customers


The food was GREAT however, I had to move rooms twice The first room had scratched and scrapped furniture with big chunks missing There was a noticeable hole cut in the ceiling of the shower with some weird panel situation

The walls had what looked like food and stains Just a yucky room The second room wasn’t AS BAD, but the shower is nasty with grime, rust, and parts of the rubber to keep the water in ripped up which is really a tripping hazard I will be returning to the front desk in hopes they will exchange the room and maybe the third time is a charm The beds are comfortable that’s so far the only pro I have for the room Again hopefully I will be able to exchange for a third time

Harpey Family

Great stay for our family of 4 and the dog Staff is amazing, they addressed problems we had immediately Special thank you to Taylor and Shelby for their patience and kindness

We enjoyed the pool and the gym We had a keurig coffee machine Unfortunately we couldn’t rely on the fridge as temperature was fluctuating too much and we had to throw away our food We will be back

Dajah Eubanks

This past weekend, myself and three of my good friends visited this location and began our stay for a girls weekend One of the friends from the group booked our room with the Sonesta Hotel and told us that she’d chosen a “nice” hotel Although there were in fact some “nice” aspects of our stay including the staff who were extremely friendly and the lobby which was huge and comfortable, there were also some not so nice aspects of it as well

Upon entering our hotel room, we found that there was mold on the ceiling in the bathroom Also, we’d purchased drinks at the gas station nearby and of course wanted to refrigerate them overnight However, we were hesitant as the mini fridge still had someone’s drink they’d purchased from McDonalds still sitting there We were quite skeptical of sleeping in the beds as we felt that the room hadn’t been properly cleaned When we notified the people at the front desk of this negligence, they were, again, super friendly and even offered to get us another room But, there were four of us who’d overpacked and it was too much of a hassle to move all of our belongings we’d just finished unpacking We had explained to the hotel staff that it was too much of an inconvenience for us to up and move somewhere else, which they were understanding of So, we just toughed in out in the current roomEven then, no one ever offered to give us a discount or at least compensate us a day for the lack of cleanliness Some other things I noticed about the building itself (specifically the outside) is that it doesn’t look as glamorous in person as it does in the pictures In fact, the building was in desperate need of a good pressure washing And, the chairs sitting outside of several of the rooms looked as though they hadn’t been sat in in ages Also, the temperature in our room remained on 65 the entire weekend we were there Yet, the the room felt like no air was circulating at all In fact, despite how potentially dangerous it can be, we actually had to prop our door open one night because it was so hot Overall the staff made the experience a comfortable one with their kindness, I wish I’d been assured that the room had been thoroughly cleaned, especially with us still being in the middle of a pandemic Also, I wish more effort was put into making the outside of the building look more welcoming

My son and I stayed this weekend Everyone of the staff are friendly and helpful My coffee pot didn’t work and cleaning staff worked to make sure I got what I needed

Ended up it was the electrical outlet Hot water was not working and the engineer made sure that he got it fixed for me and gave me free lunch I appreciate just the kindness Things happen and they break but this staff is top notch!!!! And the food here is amazing Thank y’all for making my stay so comfortable

Evan Stull

Nothing spectacular to say about the hotel We booked through AirBnB and that will be the last time I book a hotel through them It was made to seem like it was a normal condo room but in reality it was just a standard king room

Our room had a few flaws for $150 a night, we had the same issue that others have complained about, the headboard was peeling and we woke up with black flakes on our heads and the pillows The beds were not comfortable, they felt like they were just bedding laid on a pull out for a couch The sheets seemed clean, but we didn’t remove the covers and really look Laying in the bed you could see all the dirt on the air vent though that hasn’t been cleaned in a while The room was spacious but could have used a mini fridge instead of a instant espresso machine The bathroom wasn’t bad but the shower floor could use a mat or something, it was super slippery when I walked in and almost fell, I thought it might have been from the cleaner but my partner pointed out it could have been from conditioner from a previous guest and not cleaned at all Finally parking, it’s $25 non-negotiable for parking, $35 for valet It’s worth it to pay $10 more for valet, I didn’t personally park myself but heard it’s a nightmare to get in and out of the parking area We didn’t eat at the restaurant on site, it was far too expensive for us nor did we use the roof top bar because the hotel was packed and riding the elevator, we were constantly stopped by other riders and staff They had 4 elevator, you’d think one would be staff only for this very reason

Jara Flowers

The hotel online looks very nice however in person it’s a different story The parking garage is not very lit and it looks sketchy My room plumbing sucked water was not draining properly

Toilet wouldn’t flush unless you flushed twice The decor was nice looking however the furniture was peeling bed off the headboard The next morning when we woke up we noticed a spot between the beds that looked like dried up vomit that housekeeping did not clean up from previous guests Would not recommend

Anitra Elmore

Clean, comfortable hotel overall The configuration of the room with the separate shower and toilet areas was great for multiple people The fan in our room was incredibly loud, even on low, and that made it difficult to get a good night’s sleep

There didn’t seem to be AC in the halls or elevators, making them very uncomfortable The breakfast was decent

Douglas Lambert

This Marriott property was just up the road from where I needed to be so location was excellent plus I got my Marriott points and status perks along with itThere are many nice restaurants close to this location and I even had to pick up a prescription so the Walgreens down the street was great as wellThe staff were very attentive and generousThis hotels checks off all the boxes and may I also add that the beds slept amazingly well which is becoming harder to find for some reasonI will stay here again for business

This hotel provided such an enjoyable stay that we are sad to leave!!! The suite was so spacious and clean, it really felt like home very quickly The kitchen is such a great bonus

dishes, utensils, pots and pans The staff at the front desk were kind and welcoming The evening reception was such a treat, and the breakfast was wonderful! We wished we had more time to enjoy the courtyard with the fire pit, corn hole, and grills! My daughters loved swimming in the pool, too! We will definitely be returning customers, and I hope our Staybridge at our next stop in Virginia is as lovely as this one!!!

Mike Rayburn

This is a nice clean hotel The GM here is a stunningly wonderful woman The management here in general are very professional and accommodating

The laundry facilities here are free Breakfast is nice Evenings (Mon/Tues/Wed) there is food from 530pm to I think 7 up to 2 free beers with it or glasses of wine I enjoyed my stay here and most definitely would recommend this hotel to others and come back myself


Staybridge is beautiful Two room suites with fully stocked kitchen, spacious living room and nice bathroom I traveled with my little humans who are 15 and 21

I had a four day drive do I needed to sleepHaving a second room means they can stay up all night on their devices and I don’t have to be disturbed The rates were very goodThis hotel is in the middle of a corporate area so you have access to restaurants, gas stations and a car wash The staff is awesome This place is top notch and I can’t say enough good things! You will not be disappointedPs the roads were a little difficult to navigate as you go into the restaurants Be mindful and you’ll be fine

Was super impressed by this hotel and pleasantly surprised by the area We were stopping overnight on a drive to Florida with our two dogs The rooms were a great size, very comfortable

Staff was mostly friendly although a little sparse at times especially at the breakfast bar in the AM The surrounding area is very quaint and I kind of wish we got to explore more! We went to a Hornets game and it was a great proximity to the heart of the city Can’t beat the free parking on premises plus there were nice places to walk the dogs, just nowhere they could really run off leash within walking distance Overall, would definitely stay again!


Arrived on Friday, parking was easy space at AC is limited but the Marriott also has a huge parking area

the front desk staff, gracious and accommodating Like all AC’s clean simple contemporary room was clean, contemporary and comfortable a mini-fridge (To the idiots who give a 1 or 2 star review because there is no microwave? really?? It is NOT a requirement in a non- resort/long stay hotel The amount of restaurants nearby because of South Park is Wonderful(The mall is 1 block) Cordial is very nice a place to drink cordials vs dinner breakfast not a huge selection but fresh the avocado toast was delicious

This place is beautiful but my room was not clean My son was already laying in the bed before I inspected the sheets Low and behold the top comforter was covered with make up and no telling what else

I was upset my child was exposed to someone else’s stay from the night before They did move me to another one room I checked in around 9pm so I waited to speak with the manager the next morning because I didn’t want to bother the lovely receptionist So called to ask for a complementary breakfast for my children and I to only be offered $10😳😬 voucher for my inconvenience in their dirty room Where is the or courtesy just some remorse for my family that had to pack up and go to another one Please just inspect your room first!

I had an excellent experience, Brooke greeted us and was so sweet and helpful, the kitchen staff were also incredible helpful and kind The room was very big and clean, I traveled with my 3 kids and husband and we were very comfortable the only thing I wish they had was another dresser, and more hangers in the closet, and a broom or vacuum but that’s me being picky because I had so much stuff! But it was so great! Thank you for making our trip so great!

This hotel was excellent! I will be checking out this morning after staying for a rough 10 day stay while my mom was at Atrium Health Pineville getting open heart surgery The staff at Homewood Suites made my stay infinitely easier than it would have been as they were so nice, made sure I had everything I needed, and even asked about my mom every day The food was excellent and the hotel was great! I would like to particularly give thanks to Celeste, Tyler, and Vivian for how great they were to me

They were excellent and I highly recommend this hotel if you’re staying in the area
