The Hotel Indigo in Asheville NC – video review

Last night I stayed at the Hotel Indigo in Asheville NC and it was wonderful. Not only do I love the contemporary decor and inviting rooms; it is located right in the heart of downtown Asheville. This means that you can walk about 200 feet and be surrounded by great shopping options and tasty local Asheville restaurants.

On the Lobby level of the Hotel Indigo is the 151 Boutique Bar and Kitchen which features a nice menu and great beer, wine and cocktail options. I like sitting at the bar, and also on the outside patio area with friends. 5 Star Overall Experience. Thank you Hotel Indigo!

Aloft Asheville Downtown – and several other wonderful hotels

In a new wave of incredible hotels coming to the Asheville area, Aloft breaks ground downtown. Here is a photo of the building site where the hotel will sit. You can see the Hot Dog King building to the far right.

Aloft will be among other exquisite boutique style hotels in the area such as the Asheville Hotel Indigo which is a hop, skip and a jump away, and the Grand Bohemian Hotel in Biltmore Village which is about 2 miles down the road, right in front of the entrance to fabulous Biltmore Estate.

The Hotel Indigo and Aloft will be the top preference for tourists who wish to stay and experience downtown Asheville without having to drive several miles to get back to your room.

Here is a screenshot from the Aloft website:

Asheville’s Grand Bohemian Hotel in Biltmore Village

Now this is making Big City use of some small space. I noticed when the shell was going up, it was most likely built so that it could eventually add levels to the top if needed. The Grand Bohemian Hotel is right between Hardees and McDonalds in the Biltmore Village area of Asheville North Carolina. Hardees and McDonalds have both been customized to compliment the Biltmore area and look more like the “stores and shopscape” in the Village. Bohemian also has the little corner right across the street, where Pedro’s Porch Mexican restaurant used to be on the corner of Biltmore Avenue and Sweeten Creek. Watching this area develop into such a close knit place is a developer’s dream. Many great shops already there, and a few more surprises coming soon.
