... Atlanta almost two and a half times the distance). We did some back roads today and I have you say they were straight, straight, straight! Boring. The drive back from Roanoke will be on the freeway just as, if not more boring! Still we stopped a couple of times and took pictures of a couple of lakes. Driving through the Bible Belt proved to be interesting too there's a church of one definition ...
... rosebay rhododendron blooming along the creek and the trail. At one point, the rhododendron formed a tunnel of green leaves and white flowers to hike through. In about a mile, the trail followed another logging road and crossed Davidson River on a big bridge that led back to the parking lot. I shuttled the other drivers back to their cars at Gloucester Gap and then we packed the cars up and began the long drive ...
... of fags!" Whilst another one was shouting "y'all gay!" Worried that things were gonna escalate,bwe quickly made it for the car before one could pull some kind of hillbilly weapon on us. Drove up to Asheville checked into Ramada Hotel a nice on the outskirts. Bought a couple of burgers and using our disposable BBQ that we hadn't used from the last time, we cooked up some burgers and bacon over looking the rolling landscape of the Blue Ridge Parkway as sunset. Cracked open some ...
... started shouting at us. So American hillbilly that we could barely understand what they were saying but we did catch the words "YA GAYS!" We decided it was time to quickly leave before they got across the river to us. Continued on as late afternoon finally arrived in Asheville and checked into a posh hotel the ramada, discounted price meant we paid just $22 each!! With sunset fast approaching and being in the ...

And thankfully my case arrived too... I was pretty worried that it was gonna get lost somewhere but all went well. The drive back to their farm was pretty - lots of trees and mountain views!

Historical Traveler Reviews Haywood Park Hotel Asheville
Wir waren an unserer Hochzeitsnacht hier und waren begeistert. Das Zimmer war riesig und hatte ein gutes, komfortables Bett und Bettwäsche. Wir nahmen besonders gerne ein Schaumbad und sahen dabei fern. Der Service war gut und der Preis war auch nicht schlecht.
The best in town
I just got back from visiting family and stayed at the Haywood Park Hotel. The rooms have been newly renovated and spectacular. It was warm and elegant. The staff was amazing and went out of the way to make sure our stay was pleasant. The best part was the location. I was in the heart of downtown with so many great restaurants and shopping. I would highly recommend anyone going to Asheville to stay at the only boutique hotel. I think all the rooms have been renovated but if not make sure you request one. It was like a mini-Ritz Carlton.
We just got back from a recent stay at the Haywood Park Hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The staff was very courteous from the moment we arrived, and the rooms were immaculate! Our room was recently remodeled. We stayed in a Master Suite, which turned out to be a very spacious room with two oversized chairs, and a sofa in addition to the king sized bed. We even had an oversized whirlpool tub in our bathroom. The hotel was in the heart of the old downtown area, and close to many great shops and restaurants. We would definetly stay there again!
Just returned from a visit to Asheville and the Biltmore Estate. We selected the Haywood Park Hotel because of its location in "old town" and the shopping. galleries and restaurants.
Our hotel stay was fantastic! Our recently remodeled room was spacious, comfortable and spotless. The staff was very friendly and bent over backwards to assure that our visit was perfect. An added bonus is the collocation of a great restaurant, The Flying Frog, which serves an interesting combination of German and Indian entries. Excellent preparation and service.
Kudos to the management and staff of the Haywood Park Hotel!
Be Careful--They Say 4 Star but its really 2 Stars
From the web site and the literature one would expect this to be a fully functional 4 Star Hotel. Sadly it is not.The newly renovated rooms that go for $ 200 a night and up are very nicely appointed. But there are numerous other problems here that bring this hotel down to a 2 star hotel.First of all the staff is surly and rude. When we checked in the man at the desk was obviously annoyed that we had arrived to check in. He kept asking us to repeat our questions and didn't seem to be paying attention to us.The elevator was full of trash. One would think that at a 4 star hotel the floors would be clean. They were not.The breakfast service was awful---the tray was just left outside our door.The housekeeping was mediocre. The staff prized itself on all the movie stars who stayed there but for us it was just another mediocre hotel. You could save alot of money and stay at the Renaissance Hotel up the street and have just as nice a stay.
Great location in downtown Asheville
The location of the hotel is great. Right downtown. There aren't many choices for nice hotels in the downtown area. The rooms are spacious.
Bathrooms as well. Property was clean. Rooms are a bit worn and dated.What the website does not tell you is this is a non-smoking property. Great for non-smokers. I made my reservation for a smoking room and was not informed that the hotel is non-smoking. After checking in and going to our room, I noticed there were no ashtrays. Called the front desk and was then informed of the non-smoking policy. It was obvious that this room had been smoked in from the cigarette burns on the carpet and night stand. As I said, it's a nice place. It could stand for a little updating. The location is great. Free parking with valet. Great restaurant and lounge. They need to be more clear on the website about the non-smoking property thing and have the staff be more upfront when guests reserve a smoking room.
Ein verstecktes Juwel in the Bergen von North Carolina
In einem Bürokomplex im Stadtzentrum befindet sich eines der bezauberndsten Hotels, das einen an die eleganten 5-Sterne-Hotels in Europa erinnert. Jede Suite ist wunderschön eingerichtet und bietet erstklassige Leistungen. Der Service war vom Einchecken bis zum Auschecken höchst professionell. Das Restaurant bietet drei verschiedene regionale Küchen, deutsche, pazifische und kontinentale Küche. Ich kann diese Wahl sehr empfehlen.
A Hidden Gem In The NC Mountains
Hidden in a downtown office complex is one of the most enchanting hotels, one that reminds me of the elegent 5-star hotels of Europe. Each suite is beautifully decorated and offers and flled with upscale amentities. Service from cleck-in to check-out was highly professional. The resturant offers three different regional cuisene, German, Pacific Rim and Contential. I highly recommend this choice.
Nicht des Geldes wert!
Haywood Park war nicht des Geldes wert. Die Bettwäsche hatte fremde Haare. Die Sofas in der Suite hatten Flecken und sahen eher nach einer Studentenwohnung aus. In der Badewanne fanden wir ebenfalls Haare, und in der Dusche war Schimmel. Wir hatten einen Ausblick auf einen verlassenen Parkplatz. Es war eines der dreckigsten Zimmer, in denen ich jemals gewesen bin. Sparen Sie Ihr Geld!
Not worth the money!
Haywood Park was not worth the money. The sheets had hair on them. The "couches" in the suite were stained and looked more appropriate for a college frat house. The bath tub had hair in it and the shower had mold. Our view was of an empty lot. It was one of the dirtiest rooms I've ever stayed in. Save you money!
