CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwired - Nov 21, 2014) - The reports are in, and no matter which way you look -- jobs, real estate, population growth -- things are going well in Charlotte. Houses are selling quickly, jobs are opening up and more than 40,000 new residents now call the city home. Helping visitors make the transition, whether it's a permanent move or an extended stay, is the Residence Inn Charlotte South at I-77/Tyvola Road. With its well-appointed suites and new promotion, this hotel near CLT Airport makes the question of where to stay while in town for business or house-hunting one of the easiest to answer.

The reasons behind Charlotte's 1.8% population gain center on the rise of job openings in the finance industry. Second only to New York City, Charlotte is home to offices for Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, Wells Fargo and others, along with the smaller financial-services businesses that follow the big banks.

As a result, banking (not to mention NASCAR) attracts more than its share of visitors and transplants to the area, all of whom need convenient, full-service lodging while they're in town. And among South Charlotte, NC hotels, only the Residence Inn Charlotte South at I-77/Tyvola Road offers the sort of accommodations that make travelers forget they're traveling. Spacious suites come in five different configurations and include complimentary, high-speed Internet access as well as full kitchens with ovens, dishwashers, refrigerators, microwaves and dishes. And as one of the few pet-friendly hotels in Charlotte, NC, the property even welcomes four-legged family members.

Guests can start the day off right with free daily buffet breakfasts, and then swap stories about the housing market with other guests over complimentary wine, beer and light fare during the regular evening socials. Considering the seller's market going on in Charlotte, there's plenty to discuss. Home sales skyrocketed 15% from 2013, even as sales prices crept upward 3.2%. This trend diverges from what is going on in the rest of the country, inviting many new residents to buy now while the getting is good.

To make the transition easier, whether it's a permanent relocation or just a long-term project, this property is extending one of the most convenient hotel offers in South Charlotte, NC in which Marriott Rewards members receive a 10% discount on weekend rates (Thursday to Sunday). Available between November 21, 2014 and January 3, 2015, it's the perfect incentive to check out the nearby SouthPark Mall, explore uptown Charlotte's shops and restaurants or maybe even look at a few houses for sale.
