Omni Charlotte Completes $26 Million Renovation

Omni Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, N.C.—Omni Charlotte has completed its $26 million property renovation that includes a sleek new exterior, a modern lobby experience, a refreshed restaurant and bar, new cosmopolitan guestrooms and suites, and a redesigned rooftop pool deck and bar space.

“With this multimillion-dollar project complete, Omni Charlotte Hotel is a one-of-a-kind destination for leisure and business travelers alike,” Douglas Hustad, general manager for Omni Charlotte Hotel, says. “We have watched the daily progression of this impressive renovation and it’s truly remarkable to see it come to life.”

The hotel’s design theme revolves around Charlotte’s unique history with precious metals. The hotel now offers custom fabrics and gold- and silver-tone finishes. The hotel transformation started with a redesign of its 374 guestrooms and suites. Rooms include a modular coffee bar built into the countertop, oversized sofas near the windows, and a color palette with touches that tie back to the overall concept of precious metals. Additionally, the bathrooms received new vanities and showers.


The complete redesign of the rooftop pool deck, Coin Bar, creates nearly 3,000 additional square feet of space. The new bar and grill offers poolside cocktails and small bites, and the space will have 22-ft. by 12-ft. double-sided, LED television screens that can be seen from EPICENTRE, the surrounding area of businesses and entertainment venues.

The hotel’s entry facade now has an expansive glass exterior, giving the hotel a more prominent street presence. The lobby has a gleaming flooring, burnished metal wall finishes, and a new guest registration. Metals also serve as inspiration for the finishes used in the cocktail tables, furniture, and other lobby fixtures.

Trade Restaurant & Bar expanded its bar that opens into the lobby, providing guests direct access to the new space. The restaurant has new modern seating, tables, carpet, and decorative lighting.

The exclusive club lounge on the 14th floor now includes new counter bars with views of the Charlotte skyline. It serves as an area for guests to start their day with complimentary breakfast items or to end their day with a cocktail.
