Rated 5 out of 5 by kimocmiw A beautiful and relaxing oasis
This resort is clean, comfortable, convenient and welcoming. The staff is professional, gracious and accommodating. The meeting space is modern and well appointed. The Gallery Restaurant is a culinary experience not to be missed. The lounges are comfortable and welcoming. If you come, make sure you leave plenty of time to enjoy the spa, you will not be disappointed. The pool and pool bar are a wonderful oasis but if you come in the winter, you can still enjoy the beautiful indoor pool area that brings the outdoors in. This is definitely not your run of the mill indoor pool where you choke on chlorine and can't hear yourself think from the echo. The fitness center is well laid out, clean and modern. The guestroom hallways are wide and bright and the guestrooms are spacious, clean, comfortable and well appointed. Take time to enjoy the beautiful and custom art on display in the main hallway just off the gorgeous and classic lobby. I am not a golfer but wish that I was. The golf course is stunning and looks to be challenging. Whether you are looking for a romantic or family get away or a place to host your next corporate event, the Ballantyne is the perfect choice.

Visiting the Charlotte area for our great niece's baptism. Stayed at the Ballantyne previously and it was top notch and this stay was no different. Would recommend this facility with high marks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JRV57 Great Hotel and amenities
In for an extended weekend visit with family in Charlotte. Previously stayed in downtown hotels and was recommended by a friend to try the Ballantyne Resort. The service experience was excellent from the greeting when we walked in, to the smooth check in and our experience in all the outlets. In fact, the restaurant experience was nothing short of 5 star. I invited friends/family to hotel for meals (lunch and dinner) and they loved it. The hotel lobby bar is a great meeting place, and the bartender made me the best Margarita. I will be back and would recommend to anyone travelling to Charlotte.

The service and quality of food in the restaurant was excellent. Guest rooms are beginning to look a little tired but are clean and comfortable. Will stay again when next in Charlotte.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trevor85 So much to offer
I spent a lovely weekend at The Ballantyne. I swam in and basked by the beautiful outdoor pool. I ate fine meals at the art-filled Gallery restaurant. I enjoyed a quiet, soothing atmosphere throughout my stay. Overall, a grand hotel with plenty of charm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by balvisitor My Favorite Hotel
The Ballantyne has truly become my favorite hotel. I have stayed there multiple times now, and never had a single disappointment.
1) staff is probably the nicest of any SPG hotel you will visit
2) rooms are very comfortable; the right amount of luxury
3) facilities overall are splendid
4) food, especially room service is outstanding

In a relatively short period of time, the Ballantyne Hotel and its staff have established themselves as one of the best in the class by serving its guests with first class service and delivering a top notch product. As a weekly visitor, I have gone from a first time guest (in early April) to a member of the Ballantyne family. When I enter the lobby upon check-in or walk thru the property each morning, I am greeted like a I were "Norm from Cheers." It is a wonderful feeling to be treated like a member of the Ballantyne family. I look forward to each weekly visit as my expectations are always exceeded with gestures of kindness.
