Our Top Picks For Luxury Hotel Stays in Asheville, NC

The Restoration

One of the newest luxury hotels in downtown Asheville is The Restoration. Located in a recently renovated space across the street from Pritchard Park, this boutique hotel in downtown Asheville has no shortage of dining and entertainment options.

What is especially striking about The Restoration is the showstopping decor throughout. Whether it’s the cool decor and funky books in the library, the high ceilings in their on-site restaurant or the natural light at their Observatory bar, you are bound to be impressed.

Something else worth mentioning is their use of Gilchrist & Soames bath products throughout the hotel. They also have Restoration bathrobes in each room to really feel at home. And what’s really great is that you can expect a certain level of cleanliness and newness given its age. It opened in the spring of 2023.

The Restoration boasts the rooftop bar The Observatory, coffee shop, speakeasy-style basement bar, and The Exchange, a farm-to-table restaurant.

And if you end up ever leaving the hotel, you will be delighted to find out it is in the middle of, well, everything. Pop next door to S&W Market to experience a food hall Asheville-style, head up to Biltmore Ave for exquisite dining, shop on Lexington Ave and don’t miss the drum circle across the street from the property on Summer Fridays!

The four-star suite-only Windsor Boutique Hotel offers luxury home living away from home. Each suite includes separate bedrooms and living room areas complete with a kitchenette.

Located on Broadway Street, Windsor Boutique Hotel is situated in the heart of downtown Asheville. From here you can discover all the dining, breweries, shopping and sights that downtown Asheville has to offer.

Haywood Park Hotel

The Haywood Park Hotel is a four-star gem located in the heart of Asheville’s downtown core. It’s just next to the Cambria Hotel detailed above.

Isa’s French Bistro is a darling restaurant located on-site. We absolutely love it for lunch in downtown Asheville, but they also offer breakfast and dinner. There are a few seats on the sidewalk and it truly has a romantic feel. We recently saw a couple get engaged at one of the tables!

The Haywood Park Hotel is situated in the historic Bon Marche department store building. It has a fun retro feel with huge bright rooms. But, be warned, they aren’t the most up-to-date rooms. Some have a European style and others have a midcentury modern aesthetic. But it’s a cool spot and definitely in a great location.


We hope this guide to luxury hotels in Asheville helps create an unforgettable experience for your next trip here.
