A winsome hotel in Winston-Salem, North Carolina
Built in 1929, the R.J. Reynolds building was the architectural inspiration for New York City’s Empire State Building. Today it remains an endearing icon in the Winston-Salem skyline, still grandly representing the timeless traditions of the South.
Re-imagined as Kimpton Cardinal Hotel, this historic landmark welcomes you with modern flair. Our lushly designed living room beckons with social seating areas and Sweet Tea Hour. Savor locally sourced dishes at The Katharine, our own American brasserie. Swanky ballrooms and gathering spaces host memorable meetings, events and weddings. All in a glamorous ambience of Art Deco flourishes, metallic finishes and cardinal-red details in unexpected places.
