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 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.
