Very nice property within walking distance of fine restaurants. Rooms either overlook golf course or parking lot, depending on what side you are on. Room was very clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly.

Enjoyed the stay at Ballantyne. Room was comfortable and clean overlooking the golf course. Highlight of the room was the bathroom. It would have been nice if the large tub had jets in it. We were there for a business meeting, the meeting facilities were nice and the breakfast was outstanding!

If you look at the web page, you see images of a beautiful hotel in a pastoral setting. It's a little misleading; the hotel is in the middle of an office/shopping mall complex. It's a very nice complex, but a complex nevertheless. Our room had a "sunset view", i.e., it faced west overlooking the parking lot. The hotel had "walking... More

This is more a business resort-hotel rather than a family resort, in fact, in the three days I was there I didn't see one child. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff highly professional but with a pleasant North Carolina touch of down home. The food is slightly above, in fact the room service is the fastest I've ever...

Gorgeous hotel in a wonderful location on the outskirts of Charlotte. Beautiful setting on the edge of nationally renowned golf course. The room was absolutely huge with a seating area, as well as a desk. Marble floors/countertops in the bathroom with a huge soaking tub and glass shower.

The Ballantyne is a resort like experience with world class golf, rooms, amenities, and staff. We have been there for family events and business conferences and were impressed with both.
