Checking In to The Dunhill Hotel

the lobby at Dunhill Hotel

The Dunhill Hotel beautifully combines its history with modern amenities. The brick exterior instills a feeling of grandeur before even walking through the doors to the modern and brightly colored lobby.

A masculine touch of leather armchairs, red lamps, and granite countertops is met with more feminine flowers and decor inside the rooms.

Walking in the hotel’s front door, you’ll be greeted with a beautiful bar to your right and the entrance to the hotel restaurant, The Asbury, to your left.

Reception is located straight ahead up several stairs. Another notable feature of The Dunhill is that it hosts the largest collection of original work by North Carolina artist Philip Moose.

Dining at The Asbury

Named after the architect who designed The Dunhill, The Asbury celebrates Southern cuisine with a modern nod and creative whimsy. Dark blue walls and walnut tables create an elevated atmosphere.

For breakfast, you will notice classic choices but with a Southern flair. The menu changes seasonally, but tasty examples are the banana pudding pancakes (pictured above) and chicken biscuits with a sweet potato turnover.

Dinner at The Asbury is an experience worth bragging about. Whether you are doing a handheld burger or brisket sandwich, these dinners definitely aren’t your momma’s recipes.

The burger features saffron and pickle mayo, while the brisket comes smothered in Alabama white sauce.

One evening there, we ordered pork cheeks (which were incredibly tender!) and a squash pie that I will be discussing for years to come.

My Experience at The Dunhill

Checking in to The Dunhill was very easy. I parked in the attached Fifth Third Center Parking garage and turned the corner to enter the hotel. While it is a historic hotel, the elevators make it extremely accessible.

My room was on the top floor, granting me stunning views of Uptown Charlotte. Despite its location at the center of the city, I didn’t hear any noise and could fall asleep quickly after a long day of exploring.

The beds were very comfy, and the pillows absolutely perfect. I make a note of that as I’ve stayed in some hotels in Charlotte, NC, that offer “premium bedding” that often falls flat—but not at The Dunhill!

As a working mom with a toddler, I got a solid 8 hours of sleep, which felt like a lifetime of rest.

Dining at The Asbury was a treat. At the time of my visit in 2020, they had expanded onto the sidewalk for outdoor dining. My meals were absolutely delicious, and I even contemplated the half-price wine bottles on special that Wednesday!

Overall, The Dunhill exceeded my expectations. It was nice being in the heart of Uptown while experiencing a stay in a historic property. The newly renovated rooms were spacious, beautiful, and everything that I needed for my mom-cation!
