Aloft Hotel Downtown Asheville
At least 10 Asheville area artists have original art throughout the hotel, from public spaces to guest rooms.

The Aloft Hotel in downtown Asheville opened in August 2012 in the heart of the city on Biltmore Avenue, one block from Pack Square. This highly sociable, tech-savvy hotel is inspired by the celebrated cool of W Hotels, but with a lower nightly rate for guests. Aloft is an eclectic, limited service hotel with a sleek urban energy.

The hip hotel features 115 loft-style rooms (including four suites) with a contemporary feel, along with unique amenities, including the W xyz® bar and dining with an outdoor deck that overlooks Biltmore Avenue, Starbucks® coffee bar and breakfast, a third floor outdoor pool deck with cabanas and a bar that overlooks the surrounding mountains and a comprehensive art collection featuring local artists. Hotel dining will feature fresh products produced at local farms.

The hotel is a part of a mixed-use development, which includes The Blackbird restaurant and several retail spaces fronting on Biltmore, as well as a new City of Asheville public parking garage. Aloft Hotel is a short walk from The Orange Peel.
