ASHEVILLE – A regional hotel company is nearing the opening day of its second boutique hotel, located in downtown Asheville. The hospitality focus isn’t merely directed at tourists but aimed to attract residents through entertainment, dining and handcrafted beverage offerings.

The Restoration Asheville will be the second property in The Restoration Hotel Collection, which made its debut in Charleston, South Carolina. 

In November, The Restoration Asheville will open at 68 Patton Avenue across from Pritchard Park. The construction of the former bank has been ongoing between S & W Market and Melting Pot Social.

The Restoration Asheville is an independent hotel that gives attention to detail in the guest rooms and public spaces, said co-owner Anders Anderson. It also will reflect the local fare, residents, architecture and landscape.

“The way we design our properties, we look at the history, the culture and the nature that’s in the surrounding area, and we try to integrate that into our design and kind of modernize it,” Anderson said.

The Restoration Asheville will offer 60 rooms for overnight stays, plus several areas for guests to hang out and play. The upscale guest rooms will range from 450 to 650 square feet and will be stocked with amenities, including Beekman 1802 products, locally roasted coffee, late-night cookies, Smart TVs and a fully stocked bar cart. Nosh Boxes will be stocked with locally made products to welcome guests to the city.
