Everyone knows Asheville has a plethora of hotels, right? What everyone doesn’t know is that a Holiday Inn in East Asheville has carved out a reputation for excellence in service and accommodations.

Asheville Getaway

The Holiday Inn Asheville East boasts an elegant “lodge-like” fieldstone lobby, and is conveniently located just off I-40, a mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway, six miles from the Biltmore Estate, and seven miles from downtown Asheville. Other nearby attractions include Black Mountain, the Folk Art Center, and numerous outdoor adventures in nearby parks, trails, and rivers.

Newly Renovated Hotel in Asheville

When it comes to service excellence, the Holiday Inn Asheville East won the coveted International Hotel Group (IHG) Torchbearer Award two years in a row in 2017 and 2018. Only 21 Holiday Inn hotels in the US were recognized with the award in 2018. The hotel’s quiet elegance is due to a complete $8M renovation in 2017. Everything was upgraded, from the beautifully manicured gardens to the uniquely local public spaces and modern, comfortable rooms.

In addition to the two Torchbearer awards, the hotel won the Kemmons Wilson Spirit of Family Award, the Kemmie, in May. IHG gives only two of these annually. “It’s given for excellence in service and accommodations,” Emily says. VP of Holiday Inn Hotels, Errol Williams recently visited the property to celebrate this monumental achievement with the staff.

Director of Sales Emily Crosby speaks of three steps of service that make this hotel so outstanding. “We pledge to provide the finest personal service and facilities for our guests, who will always enjoy a warm, relaxed yet refined ambience,” she says. “Holiday Inn is all about the Joy of Travel, and we aim to create those relationships and experiences that make you smile!”

Asheville Restaurants

Speaking of the Woodfire Bar & Grille, we’re not talking standard hotel food. We’re talking fine dining – a traditional steak house with a “modern twist,” serving up locally sourced grass fed beef, pasture raised pork, and fabulous fish. It’s a popular spot for visitors and locals alike. Open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner 7 days a week.

Banquet Meeting Event Space Asheville

We offer catering services and full audio visual packages as well, including LCD protectors and screen, two 50” smart TVs, wireless and handheld microphones, whiteboard, podium and much more.”
