In historic Dilworth, minutes away from Uptown Charlotte
The Morehead Inn is located in historic Dilworth, a safe, upscale neighborhood just south of Uptown Charlotte. Designed and developed as a streetcar suburb in the late 1890s, Dilworth has maintained its reputation as one of Charlotte's most charming neighborhoods for more than a century. The area is mostly residential with oak tree-lined streets, small restaurants, shops, and restored historical homes. The neighborhood is a draw thanks to its safe reputation, stately ambiance, and convenient proximity to Uptown Charlotte.
This Colonial revival house located in an historic neighborhood is charming and romantic. Even though all rooms at the inn differ, they each have something to offer: The Cleveland Suite sports a comfy four-poster bed, and the Solarium Suite is roomy with plenty of natural light. But some rooms feature tube TVs, and the bathrooms -- while clean, with some updated fixtures -- are a bit cramped and generally dated. Furniture and decor can look a little worn at times, and there's no pool, but overall, the large porch overlooking pretty grounds and the southern hospitality help give the place the feel of a grand manor. The nearby Duke Mansion is comparably priced and a bit higher-end, however, though it's a bit farther from Uptown Charlotte.
