Ground Transporation Options:
Charlotte-Douglas International Airport (CLT) is a hub for American Airlines and is also served by most of the other major U.S. air carriers.
  • Zone rate taxi fare to the uptown area is currently $21 and should take 10-15 minutes.
  • CATS Sprinter express bus leaves the airport every 20 minutes on weekdays and every 30 minutes on Saturday and Sunday. Cost is maximum $3 and takes 20-25 minutes. The closest stop to the hotel is 2 blocks away (according to google maps a 3 minute walk). Make your reservation with this group:  http://charlottenc.gov/cats/Pages/default.aspx
  • The LYNX light-rail system does not go between the airport and uptown but once you’re here it is useful for exploring other parts of the Queen City.
