Bottom Line

Situated within a five-minute walk of restaurants, bars, and shops in downtown Asheville, this three-and-a-half-pearl chain hotel makes for a clean and contemporary base. Common spaces are bright and airy, while the 140 spacious guest rooms all have corner sleeper sofas as well as large flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and coffeemakers -- but note that some can experience noise from the nearby interstate. There's a cool rooftop bar with an outdoor terrace that serves craft beers and small plates, as well as a cafe/bar with Starbucks coffee. Light meals/snacks are available for purchase 24/7, while the vast and varied breakfast is free. Other features include an indoor pool and small fitness center, but guests complain that parking incurs a fee. For an alternative with an outdoor pool, check out Aloft Asheville Downtown.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

Upper-middle-range contemporary chain hotel

Situated in a contemporary building, this upper-middle-range hotel is what you would expect from the Hyatt chain. Interiors are bright and sleek, beginning with the the high ceilings in the inviting and airy lobby that makes a good first impression. White and cream neutral hues dominate, accented by pops of color and patterns, like bright blue armchairs and pillows perking up a seating nook next to a fireplace. One of the highlights here is the rooftop bar, which is wrapped in windows and mixes a darker color scheme with exposed brick elements and wooden furnishings, plus it opens onto a chic panoramic terrace. Guests are a mix of tourists and business travelers.
