We enjoyed our stay at this property. The room was extremely large, and included a large sitting area with a full size couch and comfy chair/ottoman that made the room very comfortable. It also included a wet bar, which we did not need but was delighted to see anyway. Our view was directly over the entrance, which allowed us a great view of the street. The furnishings and decor are a little dated, however everything was in pretty good shape. The bathroom was enormous - and included a tub and separate, glass enclosed shower. The linens were very nice. Free valet parking was a nice - and very convenient - touch. The service we received from the staff in general was fast and courteous. We were also pleased to hear that the rooms are all non-smoking.
The town is charming, with lots of boutiques and shops of all kinds. It reeks of history and pride, and we enjoyed our hours of browsing.
The one problem we had was finding somewhere to have dinner on Sunday night. All the restaurants in Ashville seemd to be closed, except for a Thai restaurant we finally came across. We strongly do NOT recommend this place - the food was simply awful, and actually sent one dish back.
We DO, however, recommend a wonderful Mexican restaurant called "Salsa's". The food was interesting and satisfying, and the service was good too. Get there early - it was packed on the Saturday morning we were there.
An important fact to mention: There was a small fire at the hotel the first night we stayed at this hotel, and the hotel staff, as well as the local fire department, handled it very professionally. We were impressed.
If we ever get back to Ashville, we'll definitely stay there again.
