Explore Charlotte via the light rail
Charlotte’s light rail makes it easy to navigate the city. With the train station just two blocks from the Radisson hotel, you can climb aboard to commute downtown and see a Carolina Panthers NFL game at Bank of America Stadium, attend a seminar at the Charlotte Convention Center, or cheer on the NBA Hornets at the Time Warner Cable Arena. For a fun-filled family day, visit the nearby Carowinds amusement park. When it’s time to catch your flight home, the airport is about four miles from the hotel, and you can ride our free shuttle.
