A passion project of local nurse and beauty Anne O’Connell in the 1920s, the Princess Anne Hotel has only grown more enchanting as it enters its second century. At just three stories, it perfectly matches its charming surroundings while offering the luxuries that you’ll desire during your once-in-a-lifetime vacation. The premiere hotel is nestled in Asheville’s Chestnut Hill District, a quiet residential neighborhood that’s a short walk from all of the excitement that Downtown Asheville has to offer.
The hotel’s well-deserved placement on the National Register of Historic Places becomes apparent as soon as you arrive, with a tastefully-decorated lobby area centered around an inviting fireplace. Whether you book a Superior Suite or a Master Suite, you’ll be treated to a restful night’s sleep on a Serta memory foam mattress, a delicious cup of coffee from your in-room Nespresso coffee machine, and a luxurious bathroom experience with a clawfoot bathtub or tiled shower. A decadent breakfast is served each morning at the hotel’s restaurant, and you’ll want to stop by in the afternoon hours for wine and hors-d’oeuvres.
After breakfast and perhaps a relaxing chat on the hotel’s cozy front porch, you’ll find that you have all of Asheville’s best attractions at your fingertips. The city is overflowing with art galleries, restaurants, breweries, and museums, all of which guarantee that each day of your stay will be unique. And after a day of taking in the city’s sights and dining at its esteemed restaurants, you’ll find that the Princess Anne Hotel provides the home comforts that will put you at ease. All of this is to say that your honeymoon in Asheville will be a romantic getaway that you’ll savor for a lifetime.
