Last week, Charlotte got a brand new luxury hotel right in Uptown. The Kessler Collection, a portfolio of 11 artistically-inspired boutique hotels, opened its second property in North Carolina on August 5, 2020 with the Grand Bohemian Hotel Charlotte.
Located in the heart of Uptown Charlotte, the highly anticipated 254-room hotel takes center stage as the area’s newest luxury icon, boasting 32 suites, a Poseidon Spa, versatile outdoor and indoor event spaces, Starbucks Coffee shop, a vibrant art collection curated by Richard C. Kessler, executive lounge, open-kitchen restaurant, fast-casual eatery and rooftop bar providing unparalleled views of the Queen City.
“We’re beyond proud to bring this vision to life and introduce our bohemian flair to the heart of Uptown Charlotte,” said Richard Kessler, Chairman and CEO of the Kessler Collection. “Delivering on our development strategy, the collection is creating inspiring places for guests and locals alike in this popular destination.”
Continuing the Kessler Collection’s commitment to providing superior, one-of-a-kind guest experiences, Grand Bohemian Hotel Charlotte incorporates a distinctive blend of art, music and architecture, with Bohemian inspirations from one of South America’s most artistic and expressive countries, Argentina.
Among several amenities offered, guests are invited to indulge in an immersive culinary experience at Mico, an open-kitchen restaurant concept serving bold South American flavors with coastal Mediterranean influences. Using a wood grill to create authentic flavors, Mico’s menu artfully weaves together fragrant spices and fresh, local ingredients to deliver imaginative dishes, including Peruvian chicken anticucho and refreshing Fattoush salad. Inspired by a satellite view of Argentina, Mico is accented by rich tones of yellow and arctic blue, along with rich woods, champagne brass detailing, fine fabrics and crystals. Atop the rooftop bar and lounge, Buho, guests are greeted by a seductive and dramatic color palette of purple, magenta, black and gold, sleek floor-to-ceiling wine displays, a multitude of seating options both indoor and outdoor and stunning views of the skyline.
The Grand Bohemian Hotel‘s guestrooms feature a playful combination of vibrancy and sophistication, custom designed furniture, carpet, drapery and lighting. In a nod to Argentina’s biggest material exports, the headboards are made of embossed teal leather and antiqued brass nail heads, while the grey washed European Oak desk features leather hide drawer fronts and contemporary hardware. Leading to the guestrooms, the corridors are equally as vibrant, displaying jewel-like tones within a custom designed Axminster carpet, and the walls are adorned with colorful works of Argentinian art.
For guests looking to host weddings, corporate events and gatherings at the luxury hotel, Grand Bohemian Charlotte offers 16,000-plus square feet of versatile meeting and event spaces. Inspired by the Paz Palace Mansion in Buenos Aires, the hotel’s lavish ballroom is adorned with custom Bohemian Crystal chandeliers, silver leaf cove ceilings and elaborate paneling. Additionally, the hotel offers a total of 4,400 square feet of outdoor space, including the Queen Terrace and beautifully landscaped greenspace at the Bohemian Garden.
From the East Coast to the American West, the Kessler Collection creates inspiring experiences for guests, offering perfect vacation spots for adventure, romance and discovery.
