Wednesday’s snow brought good fortune to at least one Charlotte business: the hotel industry.

Many uptown Charlotte hotels – including the Holiday Inn, the Hampton Inn, the Hilton Garden Inn and the Courtyard Marriott – were sold out by early Wednesday afternoon.

“It’s one of those days,” said a front desk agent at the Courtyard Marriott who asked not to be named. “You’ve got plenty of (flight) cancellations. And you have workers who are stuck uptown and have to find a place to stay.”

Agreed Will Potts, a front desk agent at the Hilton Garden Inn: “A lot of people are extending their stays because their flights got canceled.”
