Ok, so when I drove up and the Bike Booze bus was blocking our entrance to the entrance - it should have clued me in that this is a very young demographic. I am almost 50 and think I'm a hip mom - my kids would disagree I'm sure- but this was not my scene. After parking my own car and shlepping my luggage up to the 2nd floor lobby/bar/registration area, I was greeted with very friendly and helpful staff. The lobby is a combo game lounge/bar and sitting area - very nice outdoor space to enjoy a beverage or snack but very loud and spartan. The rooms were very clean and well thought out but very utilitarian. I am sure the concept works with the 20/30's somethings; although I was traveling with my 18 year old daughter and she said it was fine but just this side of creepy - not sure which side she meant. There was a nice outdoor pool and "air" space as the hotel described it on the 3rd floor that looked very nice. I think this would be a great hotel for a girls/guys weekend and the location in Asheville can't be beat but it's no Biltmore...nor is it trying to be. At my age, I think I like more amenities but you may want to try it out.
