- The suites were originally vacation condos
- The hotel is set within two historic stone buildings
When you spend the night in the shadow of the famous Biltmore Estate,
pick a stay that’s noteworthy in its own right. The building at
Asheville’s 8 Village Lane was built in 1929 and went through several
incarnations before becoming Posh Boutique Hotel, which the city’s local
ABC news station has deemed worthy of a news segment. The boutique
property remains proud of its past, and even while it’s undergone an
extensive renovation, it’s maintained its original stone exteriors.
getaway may be vintage on the outside, but thanks to that renovation
and some other updates, it’s got a contemporary touch on the inside.
Each two-bedroom, two-bathroom suite is appointed to feel like a full
private apartment, with all the modern conveniences. Of course, you’re
not actually at home – you came to Biltmore Village to see the
Vanderbilt residence. So when you’re not staying in this historic
property, or checking out the local microbreweries and quaint shops,
visit the legendary château-style mansion – it’s just two blocks away.
The Posh Two Bedroom suites – there are only seven –
are appointed with a full kitchen, two bathrooms and more. Each is at
least 2,355 square feet. Each bedroom features a queen bed and bathroom
with glass showers, along with plush furnishings and other sophisticated
Asheville is ripe with culture, a creative scene, breweries and dining.
But at its heart is Biltmore Estate, the country’s largest residential
home and the city’s most popular draw. Visitors can tour the 250-room
mansion and expansive gardens and stroll through the charming Biltmore
Village (which is just two blocks from Posh Boutique Hotel). Other
activities include hiking the Appalachian Trail, taking a scenic drive
or discovering the modern culture of this historic and eclectic town.
How to Get There
No sure why anyone thinks this place is clean but A200 was awful. Stained carpets that had not been vacuumed well (if at all), a bottle of Febreze still under the cocktail table (huh?), a year's worth of dust caked on fake plants, used rubber gloves in the master bedroom - UGH.
Very impressive first look (fancy furniture, lighting, huge square footage) but quickly was disenchanted by reality. Lamp on bedside table was leaning against the wall but when I tried to right it realized the base was broken (clue: it was not a good solution - FIX IT!!). Kitchen faucet broken. Was afraid to use dishes (had they been washed?). But heck, the danged room was non-refundable. And there was no one to complain to (it's a self service deal with no attendant).
I was still willing to give it a chance until I pulled back the covers on the king bed and found four pitiful pillows that were so thin it would have taken all four to make ONE decent pillow. And the bed was hard as a rock. That did it: even though it was 9 pm, I went to the faithful Hampton Inn and Suites nearby, where I KNOW I can count on a good night's sleep.
Maybe in its early days this was a quite luxurious, spacious suite. Now it's just tired, old and not even worth the "bargain price" I paid (for nothing). The fact that I was willing to pay for another hotel room for three night says this place is truly terrible. Stay away.
No clue why this place got rave reviews for cleanliness. A200 was filthy - stained carpets that had not been vacuumed well (if at all), lamp in master had been broken and was propped up against the wall to hide that fact, a pair of used rubber gloves left on top of chest of drawers, bottle of Febreze knocked down under cocktail table (why do you need air freshener if you clean properly?). This place might have been nice when it was new, but it has not been given any TLC since. Even the finish on the bedside tables was marred (why not provide coasters??). I was still gonna give it a chance until I pulled down covers in master and found four pitiful pillows that were so flat it would have taken all of them to make one decent pillow; and the bed was as hard as a rock. Nope. I left, knowing I could not get a refund, and headed for the Hampton so I could get a good night's rest. Do NOT like paying for something this awful and do NOT like paying double just to get a decent room. Yes, I got a 'great deal" but should have known it was 'too good to be true." It was. Stay away. Ugh. (from a 5-star Airbnb host who knows how to clean and do appropriate upkeep).
Unless something totally unforeseen happens, our suite is beyond awesome. Blown away! I looked online for a couple hours trying to decide and kept coming back to Posh. You have to stay here at least once
