The front desk guy was a good guy, great to talk to, loved his job, although he made you feel like he was hooking you up for things that weren't really hook-ups in the end. We had a corner room, 805, and seemed split into 2 rooms and was actually the smallest hotel room I've had since London. It was rather comical at some points getting ready for the night. That said, the decor was really nice, and it was clean. The beds were firm and good, and our view was awesome, as I think any view in Asheville was awesome. The bathroom was very, very, very small but the water pressure was great. It was about 3 - 7 blocks walk to most of the restaurants we went to, and 7 minutes to the Biltmore. There seems to be 3 areas of Asheville to stay in; 1. the Biltmore area which is the best and most quaint area. 2. The city, which has the most to eat and shop and drink. 3. The outlying parts which are mostly malls / suburbs type areas. I liked the Biltmore area the best, but for the city, this hotel was a good price, good value and really nice.
