Charlotte establishment among world's top historic hotels

This uptown Charlotte hotel nabbed top honors at the Historic Hotels of America Awards of Excellence.

The 60-room Dunhill Hotel was named as the Best Historic Small Inn or Hotel.

A pool of 200 historic properties was whittled down, with 19 hotels from across the globe honored. The Dunhill was one of six properties vying for that best small inn honors.

The annual awards recognize innovative leadership and stewardship as well as preserve and celebrate the history of these properties.

The Dunhill Hotel is Charlotte’s only historic hotel. John Beatty is its general manager.

That property at 237 N. Tryon St. opened in 1929 as Mayfair Manor. It weathered the Depression by renting residential space.

The Dunhill is home to 2,500 square feet of meeting and function space, available for weddings and business as well as The Asbury restaurant.

The Dunhill is operated by Summit Hospitality Group in Raleigh.
