Business trip for 4 nights to this hotel. The hotel is very conveniently located, close to the downtown area of Asheville and to the numerous cafes, restaurants and activities. I had a "king" room: the bed was excellent (very comfortable, plenty of pillows) but the bathroom was cramped and, for this type of property, had a surprising "shower in the bathtub". My bath / shower diverter did not work very well so I was not able to get a really good stream of water from the shower head. Also, there did not seem to be a (working) fan. I was also disappointed that towels that I hung to be reused were taken each day. I liked the desk - it had plenty of power points to use and charge devices and a great workspace. The TV experience in the room was not more than average. It has about 40 channels but only a limited number are HD, again unusual at this price point. There is a small but really nice bar off the lobby and a great covered patio area. I did not eat at the hotel. The front desk staff were outstandingly polite and helpful.
