Travelers Make Exciting End-of-Summer Escapes at the Charlotte Marriott SouthPark

Hotel in Charlotte, NC Near Carowinds Lets Families Give Summer an Unforgettable Send-Off

CHARLOTTE, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 08/11/14 -- Summer is a time for lazy days and long vacations. But for those who either never got around to relaxing, or who wish it would last just a little bit longer, the Charlotte Marriott SouthPark is offering the chance to end the season on a high note. Its Family Movie Night Package is the perfect incentive to plan a weekend getaway, while its location near a bevy of family-friendly attractions promises to banish any vestige of the summer doldrums.

One of the biggest draws for visitors to this Carowinds Park hotel is, of course, the Carowinds amusement park. Home to thrill rides like the Southeast's tallest, fastest and longest rollercoaster (the Intimidator), Carowinds also boasts live entertainment, family rides, an interactive dinosaur exhibit and a 20-acre water park where two new waterslides added an extra 600 feet of splash-tastic adventure this summer.

But the amusement park isn't the only way for travelers to soak up the remaining days of summer. As one of the premier hotels near the SouthPark mall in Charlotte, this property is ideal for guests looking to stock up on back-to-school essentials or simply indulge in a little retail therapy at Burberry, Hermes, Neiman-Marcus and the like. And with golf, restaurants and the Charlotte Nature Museum (featuring an attractive butterfly pavilion) all nearby as well, guests will find plenty to see and do each day.

And the evenings, for those booking the Family Movie Night Package, can be just as exciting. After a day out and about, families can return to their deluxe rooms to relax together over a large pizza, popcorn, soda and an in-room movie. Complimentary continental breakfast for two at the hotel restaurant tops off what is undoubtedly the most family-friendly option among Charlotte getaway packages.

With summer's warm temperatures and relaxed pace drawing to a close, there's never been a better time to explore this SouthPark hotel in Charlotte, NC. Whether it's a family's first or final vacation of the season, it's bound to be the highlight of the year.

Guests can book the Family Movie Night Package, which is available Thursday through Sunday until December 26, 2014, by using the promotional code FM when making reservations.
