Just got back from a long weekend trip with friends in Asheville. We've stayed at other Alofts in other cities before and so was happy to see Asheville had one and a great location and rate. We booked through Southwest.com and got a very reasonable rate. The hotel is a in a great location in Downtown Asheville. Very convenient to breweries in the area and great places to eat. The staff was very nice as well. They accommodated our request to be near our friends' rooms and overall were just very pleasant. Great bar for before a night out or for one more on your way to bed. Definitely recommend.

We've stayed in all the downtown hotels. Aloft is in an excellent location, modern and clean, comfy beds. Love the shower, but wish we'd had a tub as well. Convenient parking. Our midweek stay was at a good rate; they are beating the overpriced Indigo on that front. However, the neighborhood can be noisy. Try for a room on a higher floor that does not face Biltmore Avenue.

This hotel was wonderful! This hotel is very pet friendly...we took our dog and our cat! There is absolutely no extra fee to bring pets. When we arrived, they told us that we could move to the 3rd floor and have a view of the pool. The 3rd floor I'm guessing is the "dog floor" and we loved it! Not only was our view of the pool nice, but it was also located near the outside dog area (which we found so nice!) There is also a really nice sitting area with a fire pit.

When we made our reservation, I put that it would be my birthday the day we arrived. I was pleasantly surprised to find an envelope in our room for two complimentary drinks at the bar. The bar was very nice and the atmosphere was pleasant. (I saw one person complain that the bar closed at 12 during the week.....most shops in Asheville close at 9 or 10, if your looking to party late this may not be your type of town)

I had read on the website beforehand that you could get a "puppy love" package. We didn't get one when we arrived so I called the front desk and they came right up and brought it to us. It included a big pillow bed, a ball, dog treats, and a bowl. I thought it was so great how they cater to animals. They do make you sign a waiver saying not to leave your dog unattended in the room, but I am guessing that may mean running around. Anyways, we brought my dog's crate, so we just put her in there when we went out. We had absolutely no problems.

We will definitely be back here soon!

Room Tip: 3rd floor is for pets

Stayed here during a getaway weekend. It was our first time bringing the dog to a hotel, and we were very happy with how it went. They provide a really nice dog bed, bowls, and some treats from a nearby dog bakery. The 3rd floor is designated as the "dog" floor, which is great as we didn't have to worry about the occasional barking disturbing guests there without a pooch in tow. As far as we could tell, every occupied room on our floor that weekend had a dog in it.
As we were there on a chilly weekend in November, there was no DJ or "club scene" that other reviewers have mentioned outside at all. In fact, the outdoor area was completely dead all weekend save all the pet owners using the dog run. We had a mountain view room on the 3rd floor and though we saw a lot more of the parking lot that we'd wanted, we still had a nice view of the mountains, too. The bar in the hotel was great and also pet-friendly, and the balcony would be very nice to sit on during a warmer weekend.

The rooms themselves are small but well-appointed. The beds are ridiculously comfortable, and the showers (and bliss products) are great. The hotel is EXTREMELY well-located, right in the downtown area. The only place we couldn't walk to was the Biltmore! We also appreciated the free wifi.

Room Tip: If you bring a dog, you will be on the third floor. If you don't have a dog with you, you may wa...

There aren't many options for hotels in downtown so we've stayed in all but one of them. This was our first time staying at the Aloft since it opened last year. We arrived early and were able to check in around 1:30. The first room had a strange body odor smell but we were given another room immediately. There is only one other downtown hotel that has as good of a location but it is typically more expensive. It's actually almost too close to everything if you like to take a walk after dinner! The WXYZ bar and lounge area of the second floor is a nice added bonus especially if you book a rate that gets two free drinks per night of stay. Another nice touch was the $5 credit per night for not getting housekeeping service. We would definitely stay here again.

We just stayed one night, but it is a nice place. My only complaint was the lighting in the bedroom; it was too minimal to do any work. Parking was easy; it costs $5 a night. This hotel is very conveniently located for those wanting to walk around and enjoy Asheville. The Cafe Bakery across the street is a great place for breakfast!

We stayed over Thanksgiving. For two adults and two kids, the room with two double beds felt a little cramped. But the staff was VERY nice, the decor was fun, and the location was great! It's right across from City Bakery, and next door to Blackbird, and just a short walk from the coolest part of Asheville. And the view from the room of the Blueridge mountains is spectacular. What's more, they let us bring our dog, and there's even an outdoor dog run. My one complaint would be that they didn't have a way to rent movies.

Room Tip: If you hate dogs, request not to be on the third floor
