DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Asheville – Biltmore

Location, location, location. DoubleTree by Hilton was an excellent choice for our family.  It was only a short drive into downtown for our visits to Tupelo Honey and Mayfels, we were literally minutes from Biltmore, and we easily jumped on the Interstate for our mountain adventures.

We opted for basic two rooms to better accommodate our family of six, but a smaller family will appreciate a suite with a fridge.  The convenient Market Place in the lobby made it easy to grab a coffee (love the Kuerig coffee maker!), snack, or on-the-go breakfast sack.  In the evenings we spent much of our time at the indoor pool, complete with hot tub and gym.  The free wi-fi made it easy to post some vacation photos to Facebook for our friends back home.

While we did not use it, room service is available.  The hotel is also connected to a TGI Fridays. Even in this farm-to-table restaurant wonderland, we opted for a night at Fridays. After a day of sightseeing with the kids, do not overlook the convenience of an in-hotel restaurant! There is a large, formal breakfast buffet available in the mornings, as well.

The staff were exceptionally helpful and polite.  They always greeted us with a warm smile, and offered to help with any of our planning.  They were even kind enough to deliver a pack-n-play to the room at the last minute.

As the nostalgic one in the family, one of my favorite things about this hotel is that the land it sits on was formerly part of the Biltmore Dairy.  You can even find life-size Jersey cow and milk wagon art in the lobby! The current owner is a member of the Vanderbilt family, and ensures the hotel contributes to the rich history of the Asheville area.

We would definitely stay here again.
