Travellers' Choice
Aficionados of the eclectic can’t help but love this former bank-turned-boutique hotel. Reimagined with a blend of Art Deco and modern mountain edge, Kimpton Hotel Arras is a design wonder. Stroll past Calacatta marble, European oak, lush leathers, bold metals and original artwork by renowned local artists. Hand-turned pastas, craft cocktails and our signature ridiculously personalized service (RPE) charm you within our doors. Steps away discover the many treasures of Asheville, aka “the Paris of the South.” Bonjour, y’all.

I am so glad I found this hotel! The staff is outstanding, the rooms clean & modern and the service impeccable!! I booked an Executive suite and absolutely loved my room. It was spacious & very functional with a separate living area & large desk. And the bed was very comfortable. Finally, the price of my suite was very reasonable! When I arrived the staff was helpful & enthusiastic. The hotel offers complementary wine & an appetizer from 5-6 daily. My second night I ordered from the restaurant to-go to my room & had a wonderful lamb gyro. I easily could have eaten there both nights with their great selection. During my entire stay the staff was engaging and constantly asked how my stay was and if they could do anything to improve it. But, I honestly couldn’t find fault in anything! Another bonus is that the hotel is within walking distance of several outstanding restaurants in the downtown area. Also, the hotel doesn’t have an ice machine, but cute little bags of bagged ice you can take to your room, as well as a sink with filtered water! I will definitely be retuning here next time I visit Asheville.

We traveled to Ashville to visit the Biltmore Estate and decided to stay downtown. We chose the Kimpton hotel and are delighted that we did. We had never stayed at a Kimpton property before, but they just may become our first choice. The Hotel is modern and very clean. Our room was well appointed , efficient, very comfortable and quiet. The restaurant and cocktail lounge are perfect. Prices for the room, food and beverages mare very reasonable. Perhaps the best experience in our stay was the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. Kelly and Tory could not do more to enhance our satisfaction. Our daughter and son- in -law stayed there also. We all agreed that we chose the right hotel.

My wife and I stayed here in one of the Executive Suites for New Years and couldn’t haven been more impressed with the quality of this property. We had the 4 course meal downstairs at Bargello for New Years Eve and loved everything we had. Service was great as well. Room was beautiful and hotel was right in the center of downtown and centrally located to majority of the restaurants. We valet parked our vehicle and didn’t touch it until we checked out. Everything you need is in walking distance. This property is one of our new favorite hotels. We will be back.

What a great stay we had at the kimpton. Rooms were updated, beds were very comfortable, bathrooms and showers were awesome! And the service from the concierge, to the valet was very friendly, helpful and in all around great job. Icing on a cake is the great happy hour they provide. And the nightly music in the bar. Would definitely recommend and will be visiting again soon!

Prior to reserving our room, I reached out to Will Barrett with some questions. I got nothing but 1st class service each time I reached out to him. He made me feel like a VIP during every interaction. I’m sure that’s how he makes all guests feel, from all the reviews that single him out. That’s the sign of “living the values of your brand” - which is clearly what he does, and asks of his team members - as they were all terrific! I can’t name them all, but from the front desk, to valet, to the friendly man near the coffee station each morning, everyone in the entire place is so consistently friendly and helpful. Great job Kimpton Arras and great job Will and team! Thank you! Regarding the actual hotel - nothing to say that hasn’t already been said many times… excellent location, breathtaking views, clean, spacious and well appointed rooms. If you have the means to splurge, go for the Executive King Mountain View Suite. You’ll be happy you did. The views and quality of the suite were amazing, and the bathroom was an absolute dream in every sense. Loved the local art in the suite, and local bath products, adding to the luxury. We had several vacations cancelled during the last 18 months, so we got lucky to celebrate some major birthday and anniversary milestones in Asheville, our first big trip since the pandemic. If you want an amazing stay in Asheville, don’t bother doing any research, just book the Kimpton Arras, and say hi to Will and his team for us! 😊
