SpringHill Suites Asheville

There is nothing particularly appealing about Christiansburg and after we check out of our hotel we head back to the Blue Ridge Parkway for our second day of touring.
After re-joining the Parkway we had been driving for about 1 hour when there is a detour due to road works. We leave the Parkway and stop in a town called Sparta to decide …
We stopped for a stretch and to swap bikes. I was removing my gear to lower the seat on my RS for wade when an oldster on one of those NRC spyder a pulled in and asked if we needed help, we got to talking and he gave us about a week of trips we could take in the area. Then things got bad. Wade took off on my bike with me following on ...
So wade and I stopped for a stretch and we were both complaining. The ride was so long and our backs hurt and we were tired and some Ducoti's passed us like we were in reverse. As we were sitting there a guy in a 1200 GS came around the corner, saw us and came in. First thing he says is, "what state am I in?" He goes on to examine that he was at the qualifying for the GS team USA challenge that will compete against 24 other countries ...
... many steps between floors which were difficult for me. I liked the beautiful artwork and furniture on the main floors best.
Seeing the Biltmore Estate was on our Bucket List, so we are pleased that we saw it. The most amazing part of the whole story is that the Vanderbilt family still owns and runs the place and some of the family still lives on the property. In this way, it is quite different from Hearst Castle, the West Coast ...
... side of every highway, it seems like most trees and plants have been surrounded. I tried to get some photos, but my camera does not like to take pictures while we are moving so fast, but I have posted two. In one of them, you can see how the vine has completely covered a tree. Unfortunately, these photos do not really show the vastness of the problem.

Historical Traveler Reviews SpringHill Suites Asheville
Nice comfy king size bed with plenty of pillows. Clean room. Had a sofa, lounge chair and ottoman in the room. Mini Fridge came in handy. Didn't take advantage of the pool or the breakfast, but it was a nice hotel (upper end based on surrounding hotels) for around $100/night. My wife and I would stay there again.
Wonderful Place To Stay
We stayed at the SpringHill Suites in Ashville NC on the way to Tennessee. We wanted to visit the Biltmore Estates and stayed for just one night.
I had requested a non-smoking room when I made our reservation, however, when we arrived we were given a room which reeked with the smell of smoke.
We called to the desk and they were very prompt in moving us to a non-smoking room. The bedrooms are a little small but very clean.
The highlight of our morning when we went down to breakfast was the girl that took care of the breakfast bar. She was the most friendly, energetic, and pleasant person we have ever encountered.
I would recommend this hotel for an exceptional stay.
Really enjoyed our stay
We stayed one night at the Springhill Suites. The suites are nice and clean. The front desk staff was helpfull with directions and suggestions for eating places. The breakfast was average. However, the eating area is very small and it was crowded. The indoor pool was not heated, but my children enjoyed it anyway. Springhill Suites is in a hotel complex with Hampton Inn and Courtyard Marriott. There is a Carraba's Italian Grill restaurant within the hotel complex.
We'd stay here again.
GREAT Spot, super clean!
Stopped by with our family for an overnight back from the beach - to visit Biltmore. The staff was fantastic, the property was spotless and the breakfast was great! THe rooms are set up very nicely also. We just happened to be there during the Belle Chere event and they were hopping - but it certainly appeared that everything was well under control! We'll stay again when back thru the area!
Unfortunately you have to be a member of Marriots rewards program to have room preferences guaranteed. I called directly to the hotel to make my reservations. I reserved a non-smoking room. I called the hotel 2 hours before arrival to make sure I had a non-smoking room. They said I did. Upon arrival I was informed that they only had smoking rooms left.
We stayed at this hotel in early December, and it was excellent. The room was very clean and roomy. We had a very comfortable king size bed, a large bathroom with seperate sink area, and a "living area with couch and a chair that was open the a kitchen area. The staff was just as great as the room. Very professional and helpful. We will be staying here again in February, and can't wait!
Sweet Springhill Suites
It's in a great location near restaurants and the Biltmore mansion. The room was clean and had everything we needed. The staff was very knowledgable about the area and friendly as well. The breakfast was plentiful including make-your-own homemade waffles. We look forward to staying there again when we return to the area.
clean rooms, good location (next to very good Italian restaraunt and the highway), reasonably priced for amenities offered -what you'd expect from a business class hotel at an almost economy class price
Perfect family place
Hotel was very clean, front desk very friendly and helpful. Room had 2 bed + sofa bed which worked out great with 2 kids, room was a good size not to mention the 2 t.v.'s was great. The indoor pool was nice for the evening, parents in the jacuzzi. kids in the pool well within view. When you look for it off of Tunnel road look for the Marriot sign, it's hard to see the Fairfield sign but it is behind the Hampton Inn and next to the Courtyard. Great crab legs at the Coral Bay restaurant nearby!
