Winston salem’s RJ Reynold’s building

Our gracious new hotel in Winston-Salem, NC

A Southern social club amid hotels in Winston-Salem, NC

Welcome to The Kimpton Cardinal Hotel, where a rich Southern legacy is tempered with a smidge of spunk. We are located in downtown Winston-Salem’s historic R.J. Reynolds building, the architectural muse for the Empire State Building. Step through our magnificent Art Deco entryway into a lavish social living room for a glass of sweet tea, or meet us on the patio for steamed oysters. We’re steps away from fine art, craft beer and soul food scenes, close to Wake Forest University and Old Salem Museum & Gardens, and — as a Kimpton hotel — never too far from mischief.


Welcome to Winston-Salem

You're in for a treat - and not just because Krispy Kreme Doughnuts were born here. From eclectic local art to barbecue and Wake Forest tailgating (go, Deacs!), this inviting city will woo you with her twin-power charisma.
