Prince Charles Hotel Being Restored to Majestic Glory

A structure with a storied history…

Prince Charles Hotel is a historic hotel building located in Fayetteville, North Carolina. It was built by James Addison Jones between 1923 and 1925 and is a seven-story, Colonial Revival style steel frame building sheathed in brick and concrete.

It features an Italian Renaissance-style palazzo. The original section housed 125 rooms. A 60-room addition was built in 1942. Jordan Jones, the project manager for the new owners of the hotel, is the great-great-grandson of the builder. The structure is being converted into apartments and commercial spaces [see the video {link below} for details].
