Waited almost a year to stay in this Aloft for the annual BeleChere. We were very attracted to this property due to location and the rooftop pool. We were not disappointed, and I give the highest rating on this review because being within *close* walking distance to our most favorite Asheville restaurants and shops, as well as part of BeleChere was our priority. Pool and pool view/atmosphere was great! There are a few things I wish were better: (1) even on the 5th floor, the noise from the bar below at 1am was really too loud (on the city view side), (2) the room size and (lack of) bed comfort were very much the Aloft minimalist style - not a surprise, however, for the price it's hard to feel good about that, and (3) most disturbing, the "concierge" on duty - two different employees - was very under trained. Given that this was BeleChere weekend, I would have expected those employees to have a top-three (at least) recommendation for every question asked, as well as be able to immediately plot the walking directions on a map. The employee(s') - again two different ones - unapologetic attitude at their own lack of information was stunning for someone in this role. Maybe I should have expected the Aloft concierge to be as minimalist as the rooms? I would still stay again - just managing expectations.

I took my girlfriend to Asheville for her birthday last week. Upon first arriving we found the hotel with no issues and the parking garage attached was easy to navigate. When we walked in, we were immediately greeted by Alex who checked us in and took great care of us with his warm smile and genuine attitude. Everyone in the hotel was fantastic, and by everyone, I mean every employee we encountered was so friendly and smiley, it was a true treat, from Derrick at the bar, to Jeremy at the front desk, and even a lady in the sales department made us a key when we left ours in the room...oops! The property itself is fantastic. The rooms are well laid out and the beds...or lord the beds were so comfy! The bar was super reasonable for downtown pricing and the drinks were expertly crafted. Overall, this was one of the best stays I've ever had at a hotel and can't thank the staff enough as they truly made this experience a great one for me as well as my girlfriend! Thanks Aloft Asheville!!!

Great location in downtown Asheville at a price. Stay and service was comfortable. Like staying at a College dorm though. Experienced some road noise, but a nice youthful environment. Love the dog bowls at the entrance. Gives a nice vibe. Great hotel if your in your 20's

When we arrived after 10 PM, the staff ensured we ordered food prior to the kitchen closing.
The parking is conveniently located adjacent to the hotel with an entrance from the garage.
At first glance the room appears custom modern chic. On closer inspection it is IKEA grade. Not bad, but unexpected at this price point. The shower leaked onto the adjoining tile floor. Probably not the only time this occurred.
Access to the upper floors required syncing the room key within the elevator. A beep was omitted when this process was completed, yet the elevator music was so loud, the beep was not audible.

This hotel was great! Everything was clean, the pool had a beautiful view of the mountains. The outside bar was very nice and resonably priced. Location was amazing! I did not get back in my car once the whole weekend. Max at check in was very helpful and friendly. Will definitely stay again!
