There are some excellent hotel options to stay in Asheville. My recommendation is to stay downtown so you can walk to restaurants, cafes galleries, museums, shopping and music and theater. But there other options outside of downtown as well. I recommend the:
The Aloft is located at 51 Biltmore and is centrally located downtown. You will have to drive to the River Arts District and the Biltmore Estate. There is an attached parking garage, a contemporary lobby and a bar on the second floor with outdoor seating. There is a also a coffee/snack bar that serves breakfast in the morning and other snacks throughout the day. I did, however, enjoy walking to breakfast at some of the great spots downtown. The rooms were comfortable and very contemporary. I highly recommend it and would definitely stay there again!
Other downtown hotels getting good reviews include the contemporary AC Hotel Asheville Downtown at 10 Broadway St. It has both an onsite bar and restaurant. Located in a former factory building, the The Foundry Hotel Asheville , at 51 S. Market St., with a contemporary design and vintage touches. I really like the look! At 36 Broadway St., The Windsor Hotel is an upscale boutique hotel with 14 rooms in a building from 1907. There is also a new Kimpton Hotel, the contemporary Hotel Arras at 7 Patton Ave. It has a restaurant and bar.
Further from downtown there is the Addington Green Bed & Breakfast Inn & Spa in a mansion from 1908 designed by Biltmore Estate’s on-site architect. It has elegant, classic rooms and lovely gardens. 46 Cumberland Circle.
The Omni Grove Park Inn opened on July 12, 1913. This historic property, in a residential area near downtown, is a much larger hotel with golf, spa and several restaurants. The highlight is the porch where you enjoy the views of the Blue Ridge Mountains while dining. 290 Macon Ave. I have stayed there in the past and enjoyed it, but the property is large and can host larger gatherings/meetings. Even if you don’t stay, at least go for a drink on the porch or in the lobby area. There is a charge for parking if you do go.
Near the Biltmore Estate is the Grand Bohemian which has also received top awards including one of the best by Travel + Leisure and Conde Nast Traveler Magazine.
