The good: Great downtown Asheville location. Walking distance to all of downtown. FREE parking which is a huge plus in this area. Nice rooms I thought, good rates for what you get. Asheville has a lot of new "hip" boutique type hotels. This one has been around forever, knows its competition and I think keeps up pretty well. Has a very good hotel gym if you are looking for one.
The bad: Not much. The restaurants are kind of an afterthought, but who cares because so many really good ones within walking distance, and who stays at a hotel for its restaurant anyway? The hotel bar is small. Staffing at the hotel can be a little slim during the winter.
OVERALL: I have stayed here numberous times. I have seen it through some really bad times, and it has shown vast improvement over the years. If you are looking for a very nice place downtown this is for you. If you are expecting a resort, or the Grove Park Inn, or an intimate bed and breakfast than go and stay in one. This isn't it. But very very nice.
