nice couple of days

Can't beat breakfast, everything there, including 3 different coffees, and a diligent, friendly attendant. Great hot pool, sw. pool, and workout area. Friendly staff, Room clean and comfy. Bathroom door made lots of noise, night light in bathroom would help. Bad weather not the hotel's fault. :-) Great location, restaurants and mall nearby. Asheville is our favorite getaway

Good Business Stay

The hotel is currently undergoing renovations but the work did not interfere with comfort and the workmen were polite. The rooms are a nice size with desk and extra chair, good for working on the computer.

Great overnight getaway to Biltmore

Easy, quick check-in. Nice, attractive lobby with coffees and fruit available. Hotel was cozy and very quiet. The suite layout with a king bed was perfect! The mattress and pillows were super comfy! Having two televisions is a plus if you plan to have someone sleeping on the pull out sofa. The hot breakfast had EVERYTHING! Eggs, omelets, sausage, hot oatmeal with toppings, gravy, biscuits, bagels, pastries, cereal, waffle maker and fruit. About 10 minutes from Biltmore Estate and located near a variety of restaurants.

Great stay in Asheville

We stayed here in order to visit the Biltmore and the Asheville downtown scene. It was very conveniently placed and close to both. The staff were courteous and even kept the pool open late for us. Highly recommended.
