Staycation- Charlotte, NC

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Last Friday, my husband and I had the opportunity to spend the night in Charlotte, NC. Since moving to NC, we’ve only been to Charlotte once and it was only for a couple of hours so we jumped at the chance to explore this city a bit more.

We had the pleasure of staying at The Dunhill Hotel, Charlotte’s Premier Boutique Hotel, located in the heart of Uptown (which I learned is Downtown, I know I had to get used to it too). If you ever have the chance to stay in this hotel, I highly highly recommend it 100%.

We were fortunate enough to be upgraded to the Penthouse Suite and let me tell you, I don’t know if I can ever go back to staying in regular hotel rooms 😜

Before dinner, we explored Uptown Charlotte and enjoyed the weather! MN will always be home but NC is trying its hardest to change that 😜

 

 

We didn’t have to go far for dinner as we dined at The Asbury, the restaurant attached to the hotel. And let me tell you, I am already counting down the days when I can go back. My meal was AHHHHMAZING! I follow a mostly vegan diet and they were able to accommodate that. I ordered the quinoa + lentil filling, mushroom ragout (I’m salivating just typing that) and it was one of the most delicious meals I have ever had. I also had a side of the grilled asparagus with roasted garlic béarnaise, preserved lemon and I give that an A++++. My husband had the Fried Chicken Sammy and the Cast Iron Mac & Cheese. I will admit, I had a bite or two of that mac and cheese and OOOHHH LALA. Plus 2 glasses of wine BECAUSE HI STAYCATION. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. To top the meal off, Chef Matthew Krenz, who is one of the top chefs in NC, stopped by our table! Thank you to the staff at The Asbury Restaurant for the top notch service!

After dinner, we did a bit more exploring but we were just happy to stay in The Penthouse Suite! Can you blame us??
