Recommended for dog-owners. We travel with our dog and don't leave home without him. This limits where we stay, so when I find a nice place that takes pets, I tell others - to promote hotels accepting pets.
Negatives: 1) The reservation process was very nerve-racking. They are now owned by Marriott (I do like the chain), but the Marriott reservations center has no clue about this property. They goofed up my reservation a couple of times before we arrived, so by the time we got there I was completely nervous, 2) the hotel has an annex property/building - weird! It is across the street and has no ammenities, so the guests of that building have to cross over a very busy street for everything - if you care, make sure you *guarantee* and not just *request* the main building; they almost stuck us there, 3) the property is on an island and on 3 sides of the island is very busy traffic, Asheville is heavily travelled, a lot of traffic
Positives: 1) we stayed in the main building and that is better than the annex building (just the ammenities and location, not speaking of the the rooms), 2) after our annoying reservation issues were ironed out, the service was great, 3) the restaurant was very good (blueberry pancakes were awesome...request the chef put the blueberries *in* the pancakes and not just on top, 4) the rooms are lovely, no complaints whatsoever, 5) they are super pet-friendly, 6) the sound barriers drown out the street noise very well and we couldn't hear a thing, 7) Asheville has very good food in general, great chefs everywhere
Neutral fact: the hotel's decor is chic/hunting...as in, "game everywhere" and if you are a die-hard-vegan-type you might be offended. I wouldn't want someone to arrive for their vacation and be horrified, if that would deeply upset someone...a hunter would be in heaven. Just a fact, not an opinion
I do recommend this hotel.
