A stay at Le Méridien Charlotte grants you free access to the Mint Museum. More than that, Art + Aperitif, on the first and third Wednesdays of each month, invites local artists to its Longitude 80 lounge for a talk and meet-and-greet. (The events also include local performers.) The hotel recently partnered with N.C. Fashion Association for a new monthly series called Cocktails + Couture, where attendees enjoy drinks and discuss fashion trends with special guests.
