When you’re in a hotel room, you might hear a knock on your door followed by someone saying, “Housekeeping!” In Charlotte, they really mean it.

If you live in the Charlotte area you probably don’t have many reasons to stay in a hotel around here. But at least you can take comfort in knowing that any family or friends who come to visit you here can stay in some of America’s cleanest hotel rooms.

According to a AAA study, Charlotte ranks in the top five for the cleanest hotel rooms in the U.S. The “Best of Housekeeping” findings are based not only on cleanliness but also on the working condition of things like the TV and power outlets in the hotel room.
