Why We Love This Hotel

  • The rooftop bar has a number of fun cocktails to try, including the on-draft Juniper Rose and Mountain Thyme Mule
  • Enjoy free, live outdoor music every third Friday from July-September at Downtown After Five; or peruse goods from local artisans at Art in the Park in Pack Square, just a four-minute walk from the hotel, most Saturdays in June
  • Near plenty of hiking trails in the Blue Ridge Mountains and just a five-minute drive from Biltmore Estate

New as of 2012 to Asheville's hip downtown scene, the Aloft Asheville Downtown attracts young, budget-minded travelers with free Wi-Fi, super pet-friendliness (as in zero fees for dogs, welcome kits and green space for walking) and trendy decor like polished concrete floors, exposed ductwork and bright accent colors.

The crown jewel here is a rooftop pool and terrace with great views of the mountains and downtown. Though there isn't really a restaurant on site, the W XYZ bar serves small plates and unique, hand-crafted cocktails. Hungry guests can grab seasonal North Carolina fare at The Blackbird restaurant next door. 

The location can't be beat. It's within 10 minutes' walking distance to a wealth of restaurants, bars and shops as well as popular sites like The Orange Peel music venue, Pack Square Park and the U.S. Cellular Center, a multipurpose arena where lots of sporting events are held.

The location was excellent. We walked to great restaurants for dinner and lunch. The vibe was fun and cool. Cocktails on the 3rd floor outside area by the pool was really nice. Great views

Great location downtown, excellent food/beverage within walking distance (the City Bakery is a real jewel for breakfast/lunch directly across the street). We were primarily in Asheville for the "Biltmore experience" and the estate is only a few minutes away (driving of course). While the "loft" room is just a bit "tight", the layout was very well done, the king size bed was comfortable, the shower was superb and equipped with high end shampoo, body wash and conditioner in the refillable bottles. As our first visit to Asheville, I was reminded of Austin, TX where the motto "Keep Austin Weird" seems to be a shared slogan. I now christen Asheville as the "Austin of the Appalachians"!
