I was in Asheville earlier this week with my mom to see the Biltmore house and this hotel was the perfect place to stay for us. The location is kind of between downtown and the Biltmore which was great. The front desk staff are wonderful! Susan checked us in and was so helpful with ideas for dinner and what else to see in the city. The lobby was very clean and always had fresh cookies, apples bananas as well as coffee and hot water for tea. They also had a great tea selection. The pool and hot tub area was very clean and nice. The pool is small but still nice and clean and there wasn't that heavy chlorine smell that a lot of indoor pools have. We stayed in one of the king suites because we needed to separate sleeping areas and it was nice and comfy. The beds are great even the pull out sofa bed was comfortable. It is an older hotel but they keep it very clean although the elevator is a little slow. The breakfast room has a lot of tables and nice. We had a really good breakfast. The waffles are very yummy and they had a selection of fresh fruit toppings you could put on them which is something I have not seen at other hotels. It was a nice touch.
One other thing that made this a really nice stay was the staff, especially Susan. We had an early dinner and I went downstairs to ask her were the closest place was to go and get some munchies for later and she gave me directions to the closest grocery store and then said that I could use the plates and silverware in the breakfast room if I needed to. It is open 24/7. The staff was just so friendly, helpful and really wanting to make sure you were taken care of. You just don't get service like that to much anymore. It just made the trip that much better.
If you are going to Asheville and need a nice, quite and affordable place to stay, this should be your first choice.
