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.
