Gracious Downtown Winston-Salem Hotel

Saunter through our downtown neighborhood

Handsomely housed within the stately R.J. Reynolds Building, Kimpton Cardinal Hotel’s historic address has been in the center of the remarkable rebirth of Winston-Salem’s thriving downtown. Take a stroll from our famous front door and you’ll be greeted by a progressive, eclectic community that retains all the charm and history of days gone by. Equal parts creative haven for artists, marketplace for beloved businesses and humble stage for indie musicians, the Downtown Arts District simply begs to be explored.

Take in all the sights, sounds and gossip this neighborhood has to offer and then sit a spell. Blocks of sunny cafes, soul food joints and breweries are yours for the tasting. If you’re lucky, your spread will be served with a side of Piedmont bluegrass. End your downtown day with a cold libation at Kimpton Cardinal Hotel, the most gracious of downtown Winston-Salem hotels.
