Nestled amid the glorious Blue Ridge Mountains, the Four Points by Sheraton Asheville Downtown hotel is within easy reach of the landmark Biltmore Estate. The hotel offers free Wi-Fi and on-site dining for the convenience of guests, and the pet-friendly day rooms have a great range of natural wonders close at hand, plus the Western North Carolina Nature Center.
Diverse Dining – The hotel’s Chop House offers on-site dining, and there are more culinary options nearby if you fancy something else. A vintage setting meets modern taproom at Pack’s Tavern, with 35 rotating taps and live music to accompany the eclectic menu. If French flavor is your preference then Bouchon provides comfort food cooked with locally sourced ingredients, whilst Limones Restaurant offers a combination of Californian and Mexican cuisine. Other local styles include Spanish, seafood, Indian, and more.
Natural Beauty – Head northeast from the hourly rooms to explore the great outdoors and drink in the abundant natural beauty at the Craggy Gardens Visitor Center, where maps, guides, and mountain views are all present. There are trails to wander, and those who fancy stunning panoramas and some exercise can keep going to ascend Mount Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi.
Biltmore Estate – South of the hotel is the Biltmore Estate, a historic mansion dating back to the late 19th century. Today, it functions as a museum and tourist attraction, complete with beautiful gardens (where you can enjoy a picnic, weather permitting). Travel back in time amid elegant architecture, when making buildings beautiful was still de rigueur.
Western North Carolina Nature Center – Nature lovers can explore the flora and fauna of the Southern Appalachian region at the Western North Carolina Nature Center. This zoo is home to more than 60 species, including cute creatures such as otters and red pandas, plus bobcats, black bears, and rare red wolves.
