We wanted a weekend away in Asheville but didn't want to do the Grove Park/Biltmore Estate resort scene (which we both had done before). The Hilton seemed a good choice since the hotel is in the same class as several hotels downtown, but at a significant price saving.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bed was perfect, the room was very clean, and had a very comfortable lounge chair and ottoman. The free wireless and wired internet connections worked great. A pullout table from under the desk expands for additional work space or for in-room dining.
On the slight downside, though the bathroom was fine, it took literally several minutes for the shower to get hot and then the control was rather persnickety. Also the room is rather oddly decorated with a loud blue and white floral pattern rug with a cheesy looking and even louder blue and green bed throw (which we tucked in a drawer so we wouldn't have to look at it). Several other decorative items clashed with each other. Believe me, I am hardly sensitive to this kind of thing - and even I noticed!
Re location, it's 15 minutes from downtown in a fairly new planned mixed use community that includes a movie theater, and such stores as Barnes & Noble and REI as well as several midscale restaurants. Obviously the substantial price saving of the hotel is a trade off from not being right downtown. The hotel is very quiet, which is not necessarily so of hotels downtown.
In terms of the restaurant, we only had the breakfast buffet, which was actually very good quality.
Bottom line, good bang for the buck for Asheville, if a bit of a commute to downtown.
Would stay here again.
Ask for a room on the side of the hotel that looks out to the mountains.
