Open your tired eyes and feel that vacation excitement grow as The Land of the Sky and Asheville Regional Airport (AVL) finally makes their appearance through the plane's windows. Welcome to Asheville!
Reserve a room at one of the 2 hotel options at the airport and you'll find yourself in a cozy bed moments after leaving the arrivals area. One of the most renowned is the Fairfield Inn by Marriott Asheville, which offers complimentary airport shuttle service, airport shuttle service and 24-hour concierge. You might also like to take a look at the Clarion Inn Asheville Airport.
Get an authentic taste of the area while remaining within easy reach of the airport by booking a room in an adjoining neighborhood. With 8 hotel options to select from, Arden is an attractive suburb. Here, you can stick the Hilton Asheville Biltmore Park and the Hampton Inn and Suites Asheville I-26 on your list.
Even though you may be between flights, it's worth taking the time to see Biltmore Estate if possible. It's located just 7 miles (11 kilometers) away.
Now that you're all set with where you are going and what you'd like to see and do, be sure to choose your accommodation as soon as you're able.
The Econo Lodge Airport is just a short stroll from the arrival gate. A terrific choice for those on a budget, this conveniently located option features complimentary breakfasts, internet access and business services.
While the Mountain Inn & Suites Airport and the Hilton Asheville Biltmore Park mightn't be right next to the terminals, they won't take long to reach either — a short drive at most. The first property offers its guests room service, 24-hour front desk services and air-conditioned public areas. The second has conference facilities, a spa tub and on-site shopping options.
