The Ivey’s Hotel in Charlotte is the newest addition to the Uptown hotel scene. Ask yourself: What do you want out of a luxury hotel? It’s not really about the amenities – extensive though they will be – and it’s not really even about the location, important as it is to your choice of vacation destination. A luxury hotel is really about the feeling you get the moment you step inside, a sense that you’ve been transported somewhere where all your needs are taken care of. It’s real relaxation at its adult best – no responsibilities and pure comfort.
The Ivey’s Hotel, a new addition to Uptown Charlotte, is doing luxury travel right by offering some of the finest accommodations and the best service in the city. The new boutique destination is in one of the few remaining historic buildings in Uptown. The Ivey’s building was originally the home of the J.B. Ivey’s Department store, which opened its doors in Charlotte in 1924. With a nod to Charlotte’s past and an eye for modern needs, The Ivey’s was able to meet history with luxury.
With only 42 rooms, The Ivey’s Hotel is expected to be the only Five-Star luxury boutique hotel in Charlotte. The design mixes vintage Parisian glamour and unique antiques and artwork with some of the highest-end contemporary touches and necessities. Whether you’re going for pleasure or for work, The Ivey’s will have all your needs covered between the extensive amenities offered and the easy access to all the Queen City has to offer.

After you check in, head to BLT Steak in The Ritz for fine dining – order those brussel sprouts – in a casual-cool environment. You can head right upstairs afterward for a cocktail at the exclusive Punch Room, where they serve up some of the most inventive, luxe drinks we’ve ever had.
When you wake up, take a walk down to 7th Street Public Market to browse the shops and grab a coffee from Not Just Coffee. Breakfast at Local Loaf, where they serve up freshly baked breads and pastries. The Croque Madame breakfast sandwich is a must. Pop into the Charlotte History Museum or the Discovery Place, both conveniently located near The Ivey’s. Saturday night, you can make reservations at Roosters for a wood-fired meal you won’t forget. The short rib is next-level and the coconut cake is the type of dessert dreams are made of.
Cap off your weekend with a leisurely brunch at The Asbury. Afterwards, walk it off with a stroll through Romare Bearden Park. Return to The Ivey’s for one of those in-room massages to end your stay there with one last bit of leisure.
