The 1000 room hotel in Austin, that's being built, is 32 stories 408 FT. I wonder if the one in Charlotte will be a little bigger in size. Surprised the Observer didn't give a rough estimate on size since this is really big news for Charlotte. But i guess there's nothing really to base it off of.
Just some info - Austin has two completed 1K+ room Convention Center Hotels:

32-story JW completed in 2015
36-story Fairmont completed this past March

Yeah that's kinda shocking. I wonder if it has to do with the University of Texas. don't know if there's much of a correlation, just the first thing to come to mind.
The hotels' benefit from the university is mainly during weekends with home football games. The main draws are big events (SXSW, ACL Fest, F1, etc) and downtown nightlife.
There is also a 800 room Hilton convention center hotel connected to the convention center via a skybridge like the Fairmont. Another 600+ room Marriott CC hotel is under construction and will have a skybridge connection to a proposed ~3 clock CC expansion.
