Sheraton Charlotte Airport Review

By  | 

My award trip to Thailand over the holidays had me leaving out of Charlotte in the evening. However, given US Airways track record of tight connection times and late flights, I was nervous about taking the afternoon flight from JAX. Instead I opted for an early morning flight that would give me 2-3 more flights I could catch if mine was delayed or cancelled.

That left me with a 6hr layover in Charlotte. As much as I like their sweet tea options and rocking chairs, that much time to kill would leave me exhausted before I ever got on the flight to Munich.

So I started researching local hotel options and discovered the Sheraton Charlotte Airport. It’s Category 2, a bargain at only 4,000 SPG points and offers a free shuttle to/from the airport that runs every half hour.

My gold status earned a room on the top floor at the end of the hall at check in. The room was spacious and updated, and definitely quiet. Large flat screen, big desk/writing area, and a little nook with two chairs to site in.

What impressed me the most was how competent and nice the front desk people were. Since I would be coming in at 10AM and leaving at 4PM, I wasn’t sure the best way to make my reservation.

Made it for the night before, with a note that I’d be checking in the next morning and needing Starwood Gold 4PM checkout or make it for the day of and ask them to guarantee early check in. I called the day before my arrival and she promptly checked me in, noting in my reservation I’d be arriving the next morning.

When I arrived, everything was in order and they even comped my internet at check out.
