The Ivey's Hotel

Paris meets Southern charm in North Carolina

The Ivey's Hotel exudes a Paris-meets-Southern-charm aesthetic. You’ll notice lots of design details, ranging from the array of French art in the hallways to the fanciful circular ironwork on a moon gate doorway and stair railings to chandeliers dangling from many spaces. The building comes with a fashionable past: it opened its doors in 1924 as Ivey’s department store.

The hotel sits in the heart of Uptown Charlotte, surrounded by museums, shops, restaurants and art. Though with three places to dine and drink and a secret library to explore, there's plenty to do at the 47-room property.

For example, all guests are welcome to join the daily, complimentary wine social in the lounge. Or shop in the boutique, which sells Sunday Citizen throws, Panier des Sens essential oils, jewelry and more. Back in your room, luxuriate in the fine Frette Italian bedding, take a bath in the soaking tub or enjoy the local snacks while gazing out the window to the bustling city beyond.

Our Inspector's Highlights

  • Each room offers a twist on modern luxury. Exposed brick walls mix with detailed wallpaper; rich, velvety furniture comes with metal highlights; and bright, lush rugs accent the reclaimed, 400-year-old French oak floors. The suites look elegant and new, but with a comforting classic feel. And they feature the latest technology, including 55- or 65-inch Sony 4K flatscreen TVs with DirectTV and Bose soundbars (select suites have 70-inch televisions).
  • Wander the halls to find the hidden library, the perfect spot for a quiet morning latte or glass of wine later in the day. The warm space, where art or books like the dark red walls and leather seating, provides a secluded space to work, relax and, of course, read in.
  • Book accommodations with a European-style soaking or clawfoot tub to add an extra layer of luxury. Use bath products by Mistral and then wrap yourself up in a plush robe and enjoy the view of the city while sipping on an espresso.
  • Enjoy a craft cocktail in the stylishly elegant Sophia's Lounge. You also can get a bite here, be that a croque madame for breakfast or wagyu sliders and truffle fries for dinner. Another dinner option: Church and Union Charlotte, which serves New American cuisine by Top Chef alum Jamie Lynch.
  • Visit the Charlotte hotel’s new 1,500-square-foot fitness center to work out on the Cybex treadmills, Octane XT Ellipticals and Hoist strength machines. There's also a dedicated area for floor exercises, yoga and free weights.
