Hotels in Asheville, North Carolina, routinely offer guests a variety of amenities including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, free breakfasts and package deals that include golfing and tickets to the Biltmore estate, a National Historic Landmark. While a number of hotels are thoughtful enough to provide a public hot tub for guests, usually near the swimming pool, a few hotels in Asheville offer private in-room hot tubs.
Country Inns and Suites Asheville
The whirlpool suites at Country Inns and Suites Asheville feature hot tubs big enough for two. Stop by the hotel's "Read it and Return" library and pick out something to read while you relax in your private tub. The two-room suites have a king-sized bed plus a queen sofa bed in the living area. French doors separate the bedroom from the rest of the unit, with a television provided for each section. Guests receive a free breakfast of pastries, cereals, fruits and beverages. Harbor Inn Seafood, within walking distance of the Country Inn, serves lunch and dinner. The menu leans heavily on seafood but the restaurant also has steaks and grilled chicken.
Residence at Biltmore
The majority of the one- and two-bedroom suites at the Residence at Biltmore have hot tubs and fireplaces, which contribute to the relaxed ambiance at this all-suite hotel. Suites have fully equipped kitchens but if you choose to eat out, consider Rezaz Restaurant for fine-dining cuisine highlighted by Spanish, Italian, Middle Eastern, Moroccan and North African dishes. While in Asheville, visit the Biltmore Estate, just a few miles away. The Residence at Biltmore welcomes pets.
Haywood Park Hotel
The Haywood Park Hotel maintains 33 large non-smoking suites. Two of the suites, the Master King and Grand suites, have private jetted tubs. Dine in the Flying Frog Cafe for a varied cuisine prepared by a father-son team, or relax in the Bier Garden with local micro brews and sandwiches. Just down the street, the Tupelo Honey Cafe serves upscale cuisine with Southern influences, and the eatery in the Firestorm Bookstore offers more than the standard pastries and coffee; expect an array of specialty sandwiches, wraps and paninis, including a ginger sesame wrap and roasted panini with portobellos, peppers, onions and spinach. The Orange Peel concert venue is less than five minutes from the hotel.
Fairfield Inn and Suites
The one-bedroom suite at Fairfield Inn and Suites Asheville has an extra-large, in-room whirlpool. The suite also comes with a microwave and a mini-refrigerator. Fairfield Inn provides a hot breakfast that includes eggs and breakfast meats. For other dining, consider the Apollo Flame Bistro and Pizza, which serves Greek and Italian dishes such as gyros, spaghetti, ravioli, chicken parmesan, and pizzas with Italian and Greek toppings. Enjoy a movie while you eat at nearby Cinebarre theater. Offerings include pizzas named for movies, such as the Braveheart, which is topped with sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, several types of cheese and roasted garlic.
