CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA PROPERTY EST. 1929 Decades before The Dunhill Hotel would open, local architect Louis Asbury, Sr., was entranced by the great Italian craftsmen, who created cathedrals famous for their soaring, elegant rooflines. Today, The Dunhill Hotel stands distinct on the Charlotte skyline, an amalgam of American, British, and Italian influences, something those with an eye for period detail can detect. Opened in 1929 as the Mayfair Manor Apartment Hotel, with half of its original 100 rooms permanent residences, today’s Dunhill Hotel is a thoughtful evolution. A full restoration was recently completed, and various ongoing aesthetic improvements all share a common goal—to celebrate the original vision of Mr. Asbury, with a nod to the needs of the modern traveler. Many believe the world stopped spinning during the Great Depression; yet this era saw not only The Dunhill Hotel’s completion, but also that of the Empire State Building. ORIGINAL HOTEL CLASSIC SERVICE BLENDED DÉCOR CLASSICAL REVIVAL AMENITIES 60 guestrooms. Each morning, a complimentary breakfast awaits. By appointment, a London taxicab transports guests to business or entertainment engagements nearby. Access to the Childress Klein YMCA is complimentary, as are beverages in all guestrooms. An iPhone docking station, Wi-Fi, and well-appointed meeting spaces complete the picture. DINING With its warm service and artistic food presentation, The Asbury puts a sophisticated spin on the local food movement and traditional Southern dishes. Led by Executive Chef Matthew Krenz, The Asbury is a tribute to Charlotte’s Southern roots and the culturally diverse community of the New South. There is a strong tie to heirloom ingredients native to the area and specialty items grown by small, family farms throughout the region. LOCATION On the corner of 6th and North Tryon Streets, at the intersection of the financial and cultural districts, the hotel is steps away from concert and sport venues, and Uptown’s thriving restaurant and nightlife scenes. Close to galleries and museums, it’s only fitting that the hotel partners with Sozo Gallery on the restaurant’s mood-inspiring artwork. Charlotte-Douglas Int’l Airport: 7 miles, 15 minutes. 237 North Tryon Street Charlotte, NC 28202 T 704. 332.4141
