    Was ok.

    They did not acknowledge our dog or give us treats ... just told us to sign paper we have a dog in case of damages. People nice but no exceptional or great experience

    The hotel is in a great location for exploring downtown Asheville and the South Slope breweries. Rooms are great, and we had no issues with the pups

    No place to potty

    It was not ideal that you had to walk more than a block to go take our small dog for a walk especially since I am handicapped

    Amazingly friendly

    We found the Aloft through BringFido. Every interaction with the personnel was friendly and helpful. This property is a clean and friendly place for both humans and their dogs in downtown Asheville. It’s a short walk to so many great restaurants and shops. We will return!

    Ritz Carlton For Dogs

    Don’t stay anywhere else! We loved every moment here. Provided a dog bed, bowl, a treat and toy with our room. Staff was wonderful to our dog. Gorgeous hotel and dogs are allowed in all areas. We had a great time having drinks outside.

    Great Location

    We had never seen reviews so positive so we picked this hotel when going through Asheville. The location was great and there were luggage racks RIGHT by the door to the attached parking garage. There is no very close green space at present. It was scorching hot and our poor pooch did not enjoy the blazing walk on very hot sidewalks to get to grass.

    Very Nice

    Nice checkin. No dog smell. Treats for our girl upon arrival. Excellent location. Dogs are allowed anywhere in the hotel that you go, we took her down to the bar one light and listened to music. Nice and welcoming atmosphere for a pup

    Tried to stay here

    My wife and I tried to stay at this hotel. About a week before we were scheduled to arrive, Iggy (our dog) started showing signs of stress of being in the car. We worked hard for the entire week to try to calm him down and make him comfortable in the car especially for a several hour ride to get to Asheville. I called the hotel two nights before we were to arrive to see if we could change our arrival day or cancel. The person who we talked on the phone was nice and tried to help us but because we rented a room with a prepaid rate she could not change the arrival date and needed a manager to do so. She sent them an email. We did not receive a call or email from the hotel. The morning we were supposed to arrive, I called the hotel again and talked to a different person. They put me through to a manager. The manager said he could only refund me one night because they have a 48 hour cancelation policy. I told him that we wanted to come on a different day and this came out of the blue with our dog. I also stated that we called 48 hours prior and that we had not heard anything from them.

    Needless to say, I am very disappointed with my experience here without staying at the hotel.

    Don't stay anywhere else with a dog

    We stayed with a greyhound and a golden doodle for a couple nights and everyone loved it. We could easily walk to probably ten breweries, and when it was crazy on a holiday we drank beer and cocktails on the deck to avoid the crowds. The bar in the lobby had very reasonably priced drinks to compete with everyone around them, and the staff was super helpful in recommending which restaurants and attractions to visit. This place is totally worth the price you would pay over a vacation rental or cheaper hotel that is farther away from the action.

    Excellent location, pet friendly, nice staff, great vibe

    This hotel is right in the center of the city, and in walking distance to many great restaurants. The hotel is very, very pet friendly. We brought our 2 pups, and we saw many other dogs in the lobby. The dogs stayed for free. Staff was attentive, friendly and always smiling. Hotel was exceptionally clean for being so pet friendly. Parking was only $9/day which is very reasonable for a city hotel. The hotel is modern and there was live music in the evening in the lobby. We were highly impressed and would definitely stay again.

    How could it get any better?

    The facility is the Ritz Carlton for dogs (and their humans will love it too). Bottom line, if you are traveling to our through Asheville and have a pet...stay here. If you don't have a pet...stay here.
