I was sent to Asheville on a business assignment for my company. I had heard it was a great town and knew that I would want to mix some pleasure with business and explore this great city. I found the Cedar Crest Inn on a quick google search and was impressed with what I saw. After speaking to Drew, the Innkeeper, about rates and accommodations on the phone I was convinced that this was my place to stay. I probably should not be advertising this but Drew worked out a great "corporate rate" for me because I was traveling on business and staying for an extended period of time, it is refreshing to see a small mom and pop business recognizing the needs of the traveler and accommodating accordingly... This is something that I rarely see on the road in my corporate travels. The Wi-Fi, which is free, had great connectivity and made it a total pleasure to get some work done on my laptop from the comfort of the Inn's large wrap-around porch. I had to leave early every day for my meetings and the staff went out of their way to make me a to-go bag with a sweet bread and fruit for every morning. I came back from each day of business meetings to a free glass of wine, which was a really nice touch. All in all, a fantastic experience. This is by far the best experience I have had traveling for work and up in the top three experiences I have had even for leisure travel. Drew runs a class operation, he and his staff made sure I was taken care of, and also gave me the inside scoop on things-to-do in the area. I did not get to discuss his future plans with him while I was there, but Drew if you read this, let me know if you ever need a change in pace and thanks again for the wonderful stay. My wife and I are already planning a trip to come back down possibly in time for the Biltmore Christmas tour.
