Kimpton Hotel Arras

At the heart of Downtown Asheville is Kimpton Hotel Arras, an upscale hotel that allows you to assimilate into the thriving city while still being able to enjoy sensational views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The boutique hotel is located within The Arras, the tallest building in Asheville and an iconic aspect of the city’s skyline. Two on-site restaurants – Bargello and District 42 – provide the ideal ambiance for enjoying a flavorful meal and craft cocktails. High ceilings throughout the hotel’s public spaces enhance the bright, airy atmosphere that serves as a perfect contrast to the active city it’s located within.

Three unique suites – King Suite, Executive Suite, and Mountain View Executive King Suite – all offer floor-to-ceiling windows and original works from local artists. The rooms themselves are works of art as well, with minimalist oak furniture and marble bathrooms combining for a modern, elegant look. Comfort is key, with plush furniture and spacious rooms up to 750 square feet allowing you to retreat from the high-energy city for a quiet, romantic evening. The higher floors of the hotel offer the most spectacular views of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, which even Asheville natives can’t get enough of.

Once you step out of the Kimpton Hotel Arras to explore the city that your room has offered an unparalleled view of, the staggering quantity of restaurants, shops, breweries, music venues, and museums will guarantee a memorable visit.
