The Kimpton Cardinal Hotel

Travelzoo Staff

Why We Love This Hotel

  • Located in the Downtown Arts District, a "sea of happening galleries" (Fodor's)
  • Kimpton perks like nightly wine hour, pet-friendly accommodations and yoga mats in every room
  • Rec room with bowling alley, basketball court and pingpong table
  • The art deco R.J. Reynolds building was the architectural muse for the Empire State Building


Every year, the Reynolds Building in downtown Winston-Salem receives a Father's Day card from the staff of the Empire State Building. That's because the 1929 art deco skyscraper was the architectural inspiration for the New York City landmark, built in 1931.

In April 2016, the first six floors of the Reynolds Building opened as the Kimpton Cardinal Hotel, following an extensive 22-month renovation.

The living-room-like lobby welcomes guest with cozy sofas and arm chairs, art deco flourishes, metallic finishes and pops of cardinal red. 

Guest rooms feature clean lines, tartan fabrics and bronze details. Beds are made with Frette linens and bathrooms have luxury Atelier Bloem products.

The hotel offers customary Kimpton perks, including nightly wine hour from 5-6 p.m., in-room spa services, a yoga mat in every guest room (as well as yoga mat roll-out service upon request), a 24-hour fitness center, complimentary morning coffee and tea and a "Forgot It? We Got It!" policy for providing forgotten essential travel items upon request.

The lower-level rec room takes Southern hospitality to the next level, supplying guests with a grown-up play room complete with bowling lanes, a basketball court, shuffleboard, foosball, pingpong and card tables, an 80-inch flat-screen TV and a two-story spiral slide. 

Outside the hotel, the Winston-Salem Downtown Arts District -- a "sea of happening galleries" (Fodor's) -- is a six-minute walk away. Historic Old Salem -- a restored Moravian community with costumed period actors practicing the trades of the original settlement -- is a five-minute drive. Be sure to visit the Tavern, built in 1784, where George Washington spent two nights in 1791.
