A new Embassy Suites will soon call Center City Charlotte home. The 9-story development will include street-level retail space and will be located across from the NASCAR Hall of Fame and the Charlotte Convention Center.

“The Embassy Suites development will help fulfill our 2020 Vision Plan on multiple fronts by both strengthening our convention offerings and improving the quality of place in the 2nd Ward. This development is an important first step towards achieving the city’s vision for the redevelopment of the Brevard Street corridors that will connect the city-owned hospitality assets of the Charlotte Convention Center, the NASCAR Hall of Fame and Time Warner Cable Arena,” said Michael J. Smith, CEO of Charlotte Center City Partners. “Additionally, the retail and restaurant space will help satisfy the growing demands of our convention guests. We welcome Embassy Suites to Uptown.”
