I have stayed here for several business meetings and find it to be a nice alternative to chain hotels. The venue can handle groups of 25 or so very nicely for meetings. The rooms are large and can be a little quirky. My last room had a hall leading to my living area that had a hobbit height 5'10" passage.... More

Operated by a nonprofit and recently renovated, the house, gardens and guestrooms are perfect! We were greeted by a friendly innkeeper, there was an elevator for an easy luggage carry, newly remodeled bath with soaking tub and spacious marble shower and rain shower. Our room has a shared screened in porch which we ended up having all to ourselves. This... More

This is a gorgeous restored mansion set in a fabulous acre of immaculate gardens. Decent location on the south side of town. It ought to be a treasure, but it's not. Here's why. There is no personal service - no owner who greets you as at other Select Registry inns. Only a (probably poorly paid) person at the front desk... More

If you're visiting Charlotte, by all means consider staying at the Duke Mansion. Located in a lovely neighborhood less than three miles from downtown and the Mint museums, this elegant home will soothe your soul. There are only twenty rooms. The grounds are impeccable; children's garden, rose garden, herb garden and the great lawn make wandering a pleasure. You will... More

I stayed at the Duke Mansion during a recent business trip, which was my first visit to Charlotte. I fell in love with this hotel, and because of expert guidance from its staff, the city of Charlotte. First, this "b&b" is located in the gorgeous Myers Park neighborhood... peaceful, tree-lined streets with one after another beautiful home, and the Duke... More

This is a 20 room hotel which was one of the Duke Family's homes which has been converted into a hotel. Rooms are spacious and very clean. TV reception was fair. Bathrooms huge. And meeting space was excellent. Food was good. Excellent value.

This is an extraordinary bed and breakfast. Actually, it is a conference center with many special events. The room (King with Porch on second floor) was exceptional. The breakfast was really terrific. We stayed for two nights and both the "off the menu" breakfast and the breakfast buffet were great. It is located in a wonderful quiet neighborhood only five...

Stayed for one night in a queen room. Lovely place to stay and beautiful area with sidewalks to walk around. Room was not overly large but definitely comfortable. Bathroom was large. Complimentary breakfast was very good with eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, fruit, etc. Price was very reasonable. Would definitely stay again.
