    In the Heart of the City

    Exceptional find (thank you). A fun hotel with the perfect location. The view was great and a large pool area overlooked the mountains. The best restaurants and breweries are within walking distance: extremely dog-friendly hotel and city. Parking was an added plus but you still pay a reasonable daily fee with in-and-out privileges.

    Awesome location in the city

    This is a funky place. Clean and modern. Dog friendly bar in the lobby. Close to everything in the city. Walkable. Not a “luxury” place but really nice for a dog friendly hotel.

    Definitely return!

    We brought our 90 pound Black Lab with us to Asheville, and stayed here. Not only were the staff friendly, but so were the patrons! Our 'boy' was showered with attention which he loved. The accommodations were great; amazingly comfy beds and pillows, very clean, and having the bar in house was so great for our group to chill and enjoy ourselves. Great location, walkable area.🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾

    Great location and dog friendly

    The hotel was in the perfect location being right on Biltmore Ave in the heart of downtown Asheville. There are awesome shops and breweries right in that area, so definitely an ideal location for humans to stay. The hotel was extremely dog friendly. There was a good amount of dogs staying during our time there which was great since we didn't feel uncomfortable with our dog being there. There was a little grassy area right behind the hotel that was easy to access. This was our dog's first stay in a hotel, so the elevator was a little bit stressful for him since there could sometimes be other dogs waiting to get on/off as well as having to physically go on the elevator. But all in all, other guests were super accommodating and allowed us to get on separately instead of in a group. I would definitely stay here due to the location and pet friendly staff/guests.

    Very dog friendly

    As far as dogginess, this hotel is great. Its location is wonderful too. Right in the middle of everything and walking distance to loads of Asheville spots. But you have to walk a block to let your dog relieve himself. It is also quite expensive, charge an additional fee for parking everyday. The rooms are so tiny.

    Great place

    I loved that my dog could go anywhere but the gym, much more freedom for my dog than other places. I also love that they have a dog for adoption as a mascot.

    Wonderful hotel in a great location and so dog friendly. They even had a pup in the lobby looking for a 'forever family'. So cute!! Staff is friendly, rooms were clean and very comfortable.

    Great experience!

    Accommodating hotel in an amazing location. They provided dog bowls and a super nice dog bed that our pup was excited about after walking around Asheville all day. We didn’t have a problem with finding a place for our dog to use the bathroom, but we do live in an urban area so he is used to going in a city environment. Would absolutely stay here again!

    Great Experience

    We brought our two pups (both above 50lbs) for a 4 day stay here. It was an awesome hotel, clean, friendly and the dogs were a big hit! There were a ton of dogs staying at the hotel, so if your dog is very reactive, it may not be the best choice as lots of people have dogs on elevators, at the bar, on the roof / pool etc. but we had a great time!

    Was ok.

    They did not acknowledge our dog or give us treats ... just told us to sign paper we have a dog in case of damages. People nice but no exceptional or great experience

    Great staff

    If you want to be downtown, this was a great location & front desk staff were very accommodating. As others have commented, the potty spot is a little bit of a walk, but we did not mind it. Personally, I thought it was a little pricey for a basic room (we were there on a Saturday night though, which am sure was higher). I would stay again if we were going to be in town early enough to actually enjoy the area.

    The hotel is in a great location for exploring downtown Asheville and the South Slope breweries. Rooms are great, and we had no issues with the pups

    No place to potty

    It was not ideal that you had to walk more than a block to go take our small dog for a walk especially since I am handicapped

    Amazingly friendly

    We found the Aloft through BringFido. Every interaction with the personnel was friendly and helpful. This property is a clean and friendly place for both humans and their dogs in downtown Asheville. It’s a short walk to so many great restaurants and shops. We will return!

    Ritz Carlton For Dogs

    Don’t stay anywhere else! We loved every moment here. Provided a dog bed, bowl, a treat and toy with our room. Staff was wonderful to our dog. Gorgeous hotel and dogs are allowed in all areas. We had a great time having drinks outside.

    Great Location

    We had never seen reviews so positive so we picked this hotel when going through Asheville. The location was great and there were luggage racks RIGHT by the door to the attached parking garage. There is no very close green space at present. It was scorching hot and our poor pooch did not enjoy the blazing walk on very hot sidewalks to get to grass.

    Very Nice

    Nice checkin. No dog smell. Treats for our girl upon arrival. Excellent location. Dogs are allowed anywhere in the hotel that you go, we took her down to the bar one light and listened to music. Nice and welcoming atmosphere for a pup

    Tried to stay here

    My wife and I tried to stay at this hotel. About a week before we were scheduled to arrive, Iggy (our dog) started showing signs of stress of being in the car. We worked hard for the entire week to try to calm him down and make him comfortable in the car especially for a several hour ride to get to Asheville. I called the hotel two nights before we were to arrive to see if we could change our arrival day or cancel. The person who we talked on the phone was nice and tried to help us but because we rented a room with a prepaid rate she could not change the arrival date and needed a manager to do so. She sent them an email. We did not receive a call or email from the hotel. The morning we were supposed to arrive, I called the hotel again and talked to a different person. They put me through to a manager. The manager said he could only refund me one night because they have a 48 hour cancelation policy. I told him that we wanted to come on a different day and this came out of the blue with our dog. I also stated that we called 48 hours prior and that we had not heard anything from them.

    Needless to say, I am very disappointed with my experience here without staying at the hotel.

    Don't stay anywhere else with a dog

    We stayed with a greyhound and a golden doodle for a couple nights and everyone loved it. We could easily walk to probably ten breweries, and when it was crazy on a holiday we drank beer and cocktails on the deck to avoid the crowds. The bar in the lobby had very reasonably priced drinks to compete with everyone around them, and the staff was super helpful in recommending which restaurants and attractions to visit. This place is totally worth the price you would pay over a vacation rental or cheaper hotel that is farther away from the action.

    Excellent location, pet friendly, nice staff, great vibe

    This hotel is right in the center of the city, and in walking distance to many great restaurants. The hotel is very, very pet friendly. We brought our 2 pups, and we saw many other dogs in the lobby. The dogs stayed for free. Staff was attentive, friendly and always smiling. Hotel was exceptionally clean for being so pet friendly. Parking was only $9/day which is very reasonable for a city hotel. The hotel is modern and there was live music in the evening in the lobby. We were highly impressed and would definitely stay again.

    How could it get any better?

    The facility is the Ritz Carlton for dogs (and their humans will love it too). Bottom line, if you are traveling to our through Asheville and have a pet...stay here. If you don't have a pet...stay here.
