Hyatt Centric Charlotte SouthPark Hotel Review


The Hyatt Centric SouthPark Charlotte is a fresh and chic hotel in the city’s premier retail and business district. Designed with an inviting, modern ambiance and distinctly local flavor, the Hyatt Centric’s close proximity to all that Charlotte has to offer allows you to experience the city like a local.


Hyatt Centric Charlotte Guest Rooms

Guest rooms at the Hyatt Centric Charlotte SouthPark are thoughtfully designed. They have soft-close doors and drawers, large windows, rainfall shower heads, a Drybar hairdryer, BeeKind toiletries, large TVs, and USB outlets on both sides of the bed. Of the 175 room inventory, 11 are suites.

Each room also has an abstract depiction of a crown, as a nod to Queen Charlotte, for whom the city is named.


When it comes to amenities, the Hyatt Centric Charlotte Hotel has a high-tech fitness center with treadmills, weights, and Peloton bikes. The large windows provide great views of the area, too.

Additionally, the Hyatt Centric offers guests complimentary Wi-Fi and free parking.


Beautiful Art

The Hyatt Centric Charlotte SouthPark’s modern furnishings and decor incorporate an earthly color palette of greens, blues, and gold. Much of the art pays homage to Charlotte’s past and picturesque landscape.

When you walk into the hotel, you’re greeted by a gold mural providing an ode to the city’s storied Revolutionary War history. One lone rider is among a herd of hoses, celebrating the brave ride of Captain James Jack. He rode from Charlotte to Philadelphia in 1775 to deliver Mecklenburg County’s Declaration of Independence to the representatives from North Carolina. A lovely seating area surrounds the mural with green velvet-textured chairs and couches.


In the hotel lobby, the beautiful curved staircase surrounds a metallic six-foot-tall peacock statue. And, behind the front desk is a living mural of moss.

The Hyatt Centric Charlotte’s artwork in front of the elevators features 100 gold ceramic mining pans. These represent the 100 counties in North Carolina and the region’s history as home to the first gold discovery in the country.


Hyatt Centric Charlotte’s On-Site Restaurants

The Hyatt Centric Charlotte SouthPark has two on-site restaurants: IRO and Mizu. The IRO Bar & Lounge is located on the hotel’s second floor. The space is fresh and naturally lit, serving breakfast, lunch, and small bites. The bar at IRO serves coffee during the day and colorful cocktails, local craft beer, and globally inspired wines in the evening.


Mizu combines the traditions of ancient Japanese cooking with Southern influences and Asian flavors. The result is a menu full of wood-fired seafood offerings. Located on the rooftop of the Hyatt Centric, Mizu has a patio with fantastic views of the SouthPark neighborhood, too.


Great Location

The Hyatt Centric Charlotte SouthPark is right across the street from SouthPark Mall, which features stores like American Girl, Nordstrom, Louis Vuitton, The Container Store, Sephora, Golden Goose, Vineyard Vines, and Fabletics. 

SouthPark Mall is also home to a variety of restaurants, including The Cheesecake Factory, McCormick & Schmick’s, Bulla Gastrobar, and Maggiano’s Little Italy. 


One of our favorite restaurants at SouthPark Mall is The Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar. Here, a kaleidoscope of ingredients comes together to craft one-of-a-kind fresh sushi and burger dishes. If you can’t decide between the two, try Cowfish’s burgushi. Pairing sushi with a burger is odd, but the combination tastes great.


Charlottes Got A Lot

The Hyatt Centric Charlotte SouthPark is just a short drive from Charlotte’s other unique attractions, too. 

The U.S. National Whitewater Center is the world’s premier outdoor center. Here, you can whitewater raft, kayak, zipline, rock climb, mountain bike, and more.


Explore the legacies of NASCAR legends while immersing yourself in the sport’s excitement, passion, and history at the NASCAR Hall of Fame. The high-tech venue has artifacts, hands-on exhibits, and a state-of-the-art theater.

The Puttery gives adults (guests must be 21+ years old) the chance to play mini golf in a really swanky setting. Choose from the Library or Conservatory course, grab a craft cocktail from the bar, and enjoy a great night out.


Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium is a great place to see a sporting event. It’s home to the Carolina Panthers NFL team, Charlotte FC Major League Soccer team, and College Football Duke’s Mayo Bowl at the end of December.

The Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden is a garden for all seasons. Reconnect with nature through its 110 acres of spectacular grounds.


My Hyatt Centric Charlotte SouthPark Review

My September 2022 stay at the Hyatt Centric Charlotte SouthPark was wonderful! The hotel staff was incredibly friendly. From the check-in staff to the valet men outside, everyone I encountered was very nice. I really liked my room.

The hotel room’s modern decor and artwork were really pretty. Thanks to the light-up closet and seating storage, I could unpack and settle in completely during my trip.


I also enjoyed being in the SouthPark neighborhood and could shop and dine (on numerous occasions) at SouthPark Mall; it was only a few miles away from many great attractions.

In the future, I would absolutely stay at the Hyatt Centric Charlotte SouthPark again when visiting Charlotte, North Carolina.
