Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 387 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wonderful place to stay for all ages. We travel to Asheville several times a year and have stayed at the Crowne Plaza for years. It's very comfortable and restful or lively and fun depending on your mood of the day. The staff is very gracious and always helpful. The ambience of the hotel is friendly and warm. This is our choice of places to stay in Asheville. The drive to downtown in minimal and it's a great place to be home "away from home." September 2, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unsatisfactory stay Room was next to elevators I could hear the cars from the freeway all night was being awakened by noisy people drunk I was going to stay from the 1 to the 6th of September but checked out next day. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lovely Accomodations Beautiful Place. We would definitely stay again. I loved it and so did my husband. He travels quite a bit for business, so he recognizes good from not so good. A little tricky getting to the place from the highway. But not too big of a deal with GPS. September 2, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice layout and comfortable. Thought the hotel rooms were very nice and comfortable; staff was helpful and very nice. September 1, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable Rooms, overall dissapointment BLUF: The rooms are comfortable, and have high quality furnishings. The bathrooms are acceptable, and up to regular standards. Not a bad HOTEL for a nights rest. Disappointing if you are looking for a resort hotel however. Rooms: Look recently remodeled, furnishings exceed the regular IHG standards and are appealing and comfortable. There is ample space in the standard rooms, with comfortable beds. The bathrooms are standard, and while looking aged the showers are in good repair and not a disappointment. Facilities: There are definite highs and definite lows. The biggest disappointment was when reading about the hotel it appeared they had many services that were available on site. Upon check in, the buildings exteriors looked heavily aged. When entering the buildings themselves it was evident they had been remodeled, however the dated exterior was still looming. The services advertised where not on site, but rather part of the "Asheville Racquet Club" what can best be described as a side business. While my key would get me access, it was not part of the regular facility. I really wanted to book a massage during my stay, however the hotel staff could not help with this. When I contacted the Racquet club they informed me they were booked all week. Not a lot of help to advertise the services as part of a resort if resort guests cannot obtain them. It really seemed that all the resorts attention was paid to the regular clientele of locals, and the Asheville Racquet Club, while the resort suffers as a side project. High Points: Not all was bad, the highlight of the resort was the Bar. It is truly one of the most impressive bars I have ever seen. The bartender as well was the friendliest staff member. Staff and Service: Upon arriving, there was one member at the desk. When I tried to check in she ended up fielding phone calls and answering other guests. Causing the check in time to drag for 18 minutes. Not something I am used to without there being a line. The breakfast buffet, something I was originally looking forward to as the room looked immaculately redecorated, similar to the bar, was a disappointment. The waitress was not the friendliest, and the chef was not the best at making omelettes. The hostess however was again extremely pleasant. The overall verdict on Staff was that it was hit and miss, going from very high to below average. Nobody was rude, but some were not buying into the overall experience of the hotel. Overall Verdict: As a hotel I would not have as many complaints. I was disappointing in what was advertised versus delivered. I expect the Crowne brand to be more of a resort and not just a place to spend a night. Just as I would be dissapointed in a Staybridge being a regular hotel room. Each brand has something special I expect. When the photos of a swimming pool are not the resorts main pool I view it as false advertising. When the amenities pitched are not part of the main facility, and have limited hours/availability they aren't amenities. September 1, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Staff Everone was very helpful, from the front desk to bar and servers all were willing to help in any manner. August 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel with friendly staff This was a nice clean hotel, but a little hard to find. Staff was very friendly. August 27, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Everett Kennard Review Had to get on floor and plug in lamp beside bed for it to work Went to get into shower and old washcloth from another stay was hanging on the shower curtain rod Some personal cleansing products left on counter from previous guest Service in restaurant non existant. Had to go into lobby and get my own coffee from pot out there twice. I travel Holiday Inn regularly, and this is not HI standard. Your Express is way better than this property. Beautiful hotel and beautiful location. August 27, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Crowne plaza Comfortable bed multiple pools and tennis courts and a good breakfast and bar. $10 shuttles available to downtown asheville which was nice. The service staff wasn't very good. I had two people look at me and not help when I wanted to check in. Finally after 2 minutes I asked if they could help me and someone came over. The hallways were musty and there was always food outside of people's doors throughout the day which was kind of gross at times. The beds were nice and the ac was good. for a tennis tournament it works but I will probably not stay there again. August 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tennis Nice hotel for tennis and gym facility. nice location for downtown and Biltmore August 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good sound proofing Our room was very quiet despite being next to the elevator and drink machine. Having a hotel van to take you down town was a plus. August 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good night's sleep in a beautiful location We were greeted with a phenomenal view upon entering the resort property. I've stayed in Crowne Plazas before but probably none quite so neatly nestled in the foothills of the mountains as the property in Asheville. I came for a one day event that was perfectly accommodated by this property, with its proximity to town satisfying my itch to enjoy the nightlife of the city. You can't beat the variety of food, coffee, beer, and cocktails to be found in Asheville - not to mention the people. Highly recommended. August 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great overnight stay for family vacation Stayed one night en route to Charleston SC from Chicago. Nice pool, comfortable and clean room for 2 adults and 2 children. Good value- nice facilities, nice pool, great breakfast buffet. Great value for price. Would definately stay again if/when in the area. Perfect overnight stay for traveling family. Nice facilites on site may warrant longer stay in future. August 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Crown Plaza Resort Stay August 8-10, 2014 Really enjoyed our stay at this facility. The overall experience was excellent due to friendly helpful staff in all departments, food and amenties were very good. Cleanliness throughout the hotel was very good. The only thing which may have been due to some renovation efforts was no towel racks, hooks, etc in the bathroom. Would prefer no animals in the hotels we stay in. One guest let a dog poop in the hallway and did not clean it up...had to wait on hotel staff to do this. August 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by interesting property Hotel has a little age on it - might be stretching it to call it a "resort." But the rooms are quite comfortable, the setting is marvelous, and the room rates made it a deal, to my thinking. I enjoy staying here because you're close to the action but also removed from the action. August 22, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good Amenities, Uncomfortable beds Amenities were very nice and the staff was great. However the bed was uncomfortable, the room would not cool and the A/C unit was extremely loud. Overall I did not sleep well at all. August 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by A Dump! I'm sure this was a beautiful property 50 years ago. Unfortunately, it didn't appear that they've done anything to maintain/renovate it since that time. August 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy check in and room was what I expected My room was what I expected, kinda wish the blinds would close all the way, but no big thing. The breakfast buffet, and the dinner at the restaurant was good and was a good value. The hospitality room, silent auction room and supply room where all close together, that was fantastic. The wifi was pretty weak in my room, and talking to others theirs was also, this would be the one improvement I would recommend the most. August 21, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not impressed Compared to other Crowne Plaza's I've stayed in, this one unfortunately was the worst. Our room was very old, in need of renovations. The bathroom is really small - can't even sit at the toilet and close the door while sitting down. The Wi-Fi didn't reach the whole room. I had to move desk right next to entry door by the hallway for my phone or laptop to pick up Wi-Fi. We had to kill a few spiders when we first got unpacked. The staff was nice, but offered no help or consolation. Sad that in such a nice location, the hotel has not been updated in so long. August 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exceptional facilities for everyone Access to racquet club and golf course make this an exceptional find, as the Asheville area already has so much to offer. I highly recommend this site especially as a vacationing destination. Staff was courteous and responsive. Great stay! August 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly corteous staff The staff at the hotel is very corteous and friendly. The rooms are clean and nicelly decorated. I had a room with a view of the resort grounds and it was so quiet and tranquil that I sleep with the sliding door open. One of th ebest rooms I have stay in all my travels to Asheville. I will recomend this hotel to anyone looking to stay at Asheville, centrally located and accesible to downtown. August 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by excellent service my only problem was the lack of convenient electrical outlets around the bed to connect my medical equipment August 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pet Friendly Pet friendly with access to fitness center at the tennis club right next to the hotel. Great trails on the property. Food selection in the hotel restaurant was poor. August 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful Resort with ample amenities This expansive resort has many amenities including access to zip lines located on the property. It is in a very quiet setting yet very close to downtown Asheville and a short drive to UNC Asheville. August 16, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Hotel stay The room that was given to me did not have the best view of the green pastures and landscaping at the hotel. I would encourage your lobby staff to at least assign the best room with the best view possible, at least if it is available, when a guest is checking in. I do not know why they would hold that up, and just assign any room to the guest who is checking in. In this case, when I called '0' (OPERATOR), one hour after checking in and complained about my room having a blocked view of anything outside, they asked me to go to the front lobby and ask for a better room. But we were lazy and just decided to stay in same rm. Other things wrong with the room: 1. The carpets were dirty inside room and in the whole hotel 2. They charg for breakfast 3. They charge for WI-FI 4. They did not have a MANAGERS RECEPTION (food / drinks) 5. They did not give me a free upgrade to a suite room. Typically, these things should come free with the room, as with most other hotels in the area August 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Professional Staff and Comfortable Stay The staff was exceptional - especially the breakfast staff at the buffet. The front desk staff was responsive. The room was extremely clean, large and comfortable. This is our second visit and we highly recommend this property when staying in the Asheville area. We would also recommend getting the Biltmore package. August 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good Breakfast Glad we decided to have breakfast at the hotel. It was much better than expected and was a good value. August 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great stay Hotel and property were well kept and updated, staff was friendly and helpful, dining areas are very nice, room was clean August 15, 2014
