Doubletree Hotel Biltmore

I picked this hotel because it seemed like a good location, but most of the recent reviews seem pretty negative. Did I make a wrong choice? Any other suggestions?

1. Re: Doubletree Hotel Biltmore

It is a good location for the Biltmore Estate. I haven't stayed there, but the reviews, unfortunately, are entirely consistent with my experience with Doubletree elsewhere -- it's Hilton's least reliable, least consistent brand. All too often, the properties tend to be somewhat aged buildings converted from other hotel brands, with varying degrees of success. A lot seem to be conversions from lower-priced chains, which means there's often a lot of work to be done to drag them up to the standard Doubletrees are supposed to meet. Unfortunately, Hilton seems to be OK with letting operators open them as Doubletrees before the renovations/conversions are done. Hilton properties are always my first choice when traveling, as Hilton Garden Inns, Hampton Inns, Homewood Suites, Embassy Suites, Hilton, Hilton Suites, etc., all maintain reasonably high and consistent standards. I've rarely had cause to complain at any of them, and I've logged several hundred hotel nights over the last several years. But I'll take another chain over most Doubletree locations.

Depending on your price range, you might look into the Homewood Suites or Country Inn and Suites on Tunnel Rd, the SpringHill Suites or Hampton Inn just up the hill from them, or the Residence Inn on Biltmore Avenue, near Biltmore Village. The Baymont Inn near Biltmore also seems to be a good value choice -- not perfect, but acceptable for the price, and the location is extremely convenient to the Estate. The good news is that location isn't really that critical, unless there are some special considerations. Asheville's not a huge place, and traffic is rarely bad enough to hold you up, so you can get around the entire area pretty quickly.

Depending on what you want, there are several fine bed and breakfast inns very near the estate. Biltmore Village Inn, on top of the hill above the village, is the most luxurious, and Corner Oak Manor on the other hill across from the village, is an excellent bargain. Cedar Crest is right on Biltmore Avenue just past the village. All are great locations for the estate, the village and downtown.
