Charlotte Office Location
Our office address is 325 Arlington Avenue Suite 630, Charlotte, NC 28203. It is a rosy/pink color building. The only one in Charlotte. We are in the smaller of the two buildings and you can take the elevator up to the 6th floor. Our office is directly in front of the elevators as you exit. Just ring the doorbell.

If you are arriving by Light Rail, de-board at either Carson or Bland Station. Enter the building at the street entrance. The elevators are at the end of the hall.

If you are arriving by vehicle, you will turn onto Arlington Avenue and enter the parking deck at the side of the building (near the back). You can park on Level P2, P3,or P4 in any designated office space, identified with the word OFFICE painted on the ground.

Hotel Accommodations
For hotel accommodations, there are a plenty of options and varied costs around the city, from the University and North Lake Mall areas (about 20 minutes from our office) to Concord Mills area (20 minutes from our office) to Uptown (5 minutes from our office) to the south side (within 20 minutes).

In Uptown, some of the more reasonably priced hotels are the Hampton Inn, Hilton Garden, and Holiday Inn. Of course, there are more economical options further outside the Uptown area. We have had users stay around the Northlake area (Drury Inn) and in the Billy Graham (Courtyard) and Tyvola (Residence Inn) areas as well. You will find the usual hotel chains in-and-around the city.
