A friend recommended Aloft Hotels, as they are pet friendly and we usually have pugs in tow. He said they were funky and fun, too, which was an added bonus, and said one was coming to Asheville
We were staying at another hotel when we noticed the grand opening for the Aloft. They showed us around, and I was sold just from that.
It has a fresh, modern look, very clean and not cluttered. On the third floor there is a pool on the roof, a fire pit, and...a dog walking area. We made plans to stay there when we came back in February.
The rooms are small, but large enough. They are bright and cheerful and have everything you need. There was plenty of room for the dog's crates and you could easily walk around them--it wasn't cramped, at all (and trust me, some hotel rooms are). They thoughtfully placed us in a room very close to the roof door, so walking the pugs did not involve elevators or stairs.
There is a nice bar, as well as a coffee area and a coffee shop (the coffee area is free and the coffee is very good). I did not see a restaurant, per se, but there might have been one.
You can easily walk to anything in downtown Asheville, so there is no parking problem.
All in all, it is perfect. I had no complaints and look forward to our next visit.
