The Kimpton Cardinal Hotel

Once the architectural muse for the Empire State Building, the historic R.J. Reynolds building is now home to The Kimpton Cardinal Hotel. We’ve enjoyed mixing Southern manners and modern flair, with a little mischief thrown in. Relax each afternoon over sweet tea and cheese straws, and evenings during our wine hour, in a lobby that feels like a lavish Carolina living room. Step outside to explore downtown Winston-Salem and her thriving art, music and foodie scene.
