Sitting to the south of Charlotte, ten minutes to SouthPark Mall and 15-minutes to Uptown, is a 4-star sprawling resort that delivers an incredible getaway for the weary (and teary).
Here’s what you’ll find at the Ballantyne: an indoor and outdoor pool and (indoor) whirlpool (wreathed in fronds and upscale chaise lounges; a full-service, swanky spa and salon; tennis courts; a golf course (lessons, too); and plenty of convenient dining.
Guestrooms boast flatscreen TVs, a mini-fridge, and marble bathtubs. Several rooms come with spacious balconies with lovely golf course views, while some suites have full kitchens. A palatial cottage (3,670 square feet) boasts a gourmet kitchen, multiple bedrooms, and more luxuries.
The Ballantyne’s Gallery Restaurant infuses modern American dishes with a southern vibe. The resort also offers dining in the Golf Pavilion (seasonally), the Veranda (coffee and pastries in the morning; cocktails and light fare later in the day), and the Gallery Bar.
There is a charge for Wi-Fi, but complimentary internet is available to all SPG members (free program). Ask about benefits when you make a reservation.

We enjoyed the food and service, sleped like a log. spent a 3 night weekend and got the third night free. will be back. The ginger bread houses where very enjoyable. he location isclose to every thing.
This place is just amazing! I was visiting for a conference being held onsite, it was everything I could want. The rooms were beautiful, the food was amazing, the service impeccable, the room service fast and delicious! I can’t say more...don’t think twice about staying here! I didn’t have a chance to visit the spa, but I can only imagine.
