One of downtown Asheville's newest hotels, this boutique 87-room Hilton property is in a group of connected buildings around a courtyard, including part of a former steel foundry and warehouse with reclaimed wood flooring and exposed brick. In a historic African American section of town called the Block, it is within walking distance of many top eateries and bars and has a Southern soul food restaurant operated by a James Beard Award nominee. There is complimentary champagne on arrival, a Tesla shuttle to nearby attractions, and an eager-to-help staff.
