Biltmore Farms Hotels announces today the opening of the Hampton Inn & Suites Asheville-Biltmore Village, located in Historic Biltmore Village, adjacent to its DoubleTree Biltmore hotel.
The 120-year-old company added its fourth Asheville property to its portfolio and also celebrated the promotions of 11 employees to positions at the new hotel, including four in management roles.
The Hampton Inn & Suites boasts 118 total guest rooms, including 35 suites, and features a clean, modern design with vibrant colors reflecting the spirit of the City, as well as Biltmore Farms Hotels’ Vanderbilt Legacy. Amenities include free hot breakfast, 24-hour TREATS shop featuring local vendors, complimentary wi-fi, JumpStart Fitness Center and Perfect Mix Lobby. An outdoor terrace space with fire pit and an indoor pool are a few of the other amenities available to guests, as well as innovative technology that includes a business center and docking and charging stations throughout the public space. The new property also has numerous energy-efficient features throughout the building, including high-efficiency LED lights, smart energy conserving guestroom HVAC units with infrared red sensing thermostats (turns off when not in the room) direct vented fresh air to every guestroom for improved indoor air quality and on-demand instant hot water.
The most unique highlight of the property is Milepost 408, a quaint bar that is atypical of most Hampton Inn designs, serving local brews, wine selections and lite bites. The hotel partnered with Catawba Brewing Company to create a new craft beer, appropriately called Stay a While Blonde Ale. Milepost 408 will be open not only to guests, but to the local public as well. Biltmore Farms Hotels will also expand its partnership with MANNA Foodbank, with a $1 from the sale of each Stay a While Blonde Ale donated back to the local hunger relief organization. Catawba Brewing Company will also sell the new brew at its South Slope location and donate proceeds to MANNA.
The opening of the Hampton Inn & Suites created new opportunities for growth within the Biltmore Farms Hotels employment base, as well as for the Asheville community, adding 36 full and part-time positions. There are still a few openings available at the property, including bartenders, room attendants and maintenance staff. Interested candidates can apply online at BiltmoreFarmsHotels.com or fill out an application in-person.
“The opening of the Hampton Inn & Suites is an exciting milestone in our company’s history, as it not only created new growth opportunities for our employees, but brings a unique hotel with modern amenities to Biltmore Village,” said Ron Storto, Vice President of Hospitality of Biltmore Farms. “We look forward to hosting visitors to Asheville and ensuring a memorable stay.”
