We reserved one of the Pool Cabana rooms and this past week and LOVED it. The room was European in size, but had everything you would expect in a hotel room: 2 very comfortable queen beds (our request, since we were traveling with a teen), desk, chair, and bedside table tops, mini fridge, closet space and safe. The hotel has... More

Great location - in the center on downtown Asheville, but not noisy. Our room on the 5th floor overlooked Biltmore Street, yet it was surprisingly quiet at night. Very comfortable mattress, contemporary room with actual thermostat. Air-conditioning was pretty loud, though. Nice shower with glass door and opaque glass wall that lets natural light in, no bath tub. Each floor... More

My husband and I decided to splurge on this hotel for our trip. It is definitely a cool hotel, with a perfect location downtown, with a friendly staff. I have nothing negative to say about the hotel, but I would not stay there again. I've stayed in cheaper hotels (Days Inns, Holiday Inns, Hampton Inns, Hiltons, etc.) that are just... More

We just stayed one night at Aloft but the location was perfect for experiencing Asheville on foot. The hotel was clean, modern and just right for our stay. The room was on the small size, but we didn't plan to spend our time in the room, so that was great. The view from our room was awesome. The lounge area... More

This hotel is perfectly located for easy access to downtown Asheville. We stayed here to see Beck at the Thomas Wolfe Auditorium and we were able to walk to dinner, walk back to our hotel before the concert, and then walk to the auditorium for the concert. It was perfect! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our room was... More

The Aloft Asheville is the best located hotel in Asheville. Parking is easy and cheap. The rooftop pool overlooks the city. The bar is fun with friendly bartenders and really good food. I honestly have no complaints at all about this hotel. The rooms are simple but very comfortable, and I know we didn't spend much time in our room... More

Perfect downtown location walkable to all restaurants, shops, galleries. Only needed car to get to River walk galleries. Modern rooms with great beds. Knowledgable front desk young staff who helped with all aspects of our visit first to Asheville. Unique rooftop pool with fire pit to sit around in evening. Also a dog run. Cool bar with indoor & balcony... More

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... More

This hotel was absolutely wonderful. Location was perfect, as well as the staff. My husband and I needed to leave a day early and they cancelled our last night without any issues or charges. I honestly have nothing bad to say about the hotel, room, and staff. Everything exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be back! We would recommend... More

Had a quick stop in Ashville and found this nice looking hotel right in downtown. The rooms and hotel are very modern, very clean and comfortable. The rooms were also very quiet. Plenty of hot water too in the showers. This hotel has a nice little pool on the roof with plenty of lounge chairs to relax. Fantastic find for... More
