The Foundry Hotel Asheville

At the Heart
of a Renaissance

Stylishly repurposed industrial accommodations and tranquil natural outdoor spaces are at the core of our boutique hotel. Once the source of the city’s steel production — for buildings including the Biltmore Estate — The Foundry Hotel Asheville offers guests an authentically local experience proudly rooted in the historically Black neighborhood of The Block. Just a five-minute walk from the dynamic downtown scene, we welcome you to discover and revisit our comfortable retreat, take part in our curated activities, sample the delicious Appalachian cuisine and craft cocktails, and immerse yourself in the casually soulful vibe.

Great Hotel, Great Location

“Loved this hotel. The decor is chic and fresh, the rooms are beautifully decorated, the location is a couple blocks from all the fun stuff downtown. Great service they have is a Tesla that will drive you locally as long as it's available. ”

Elegant and Hip

“We stayed here on New Year’s Eve and what a wonderful experience. The place is both chic and elegant. It’s attached to a restaurant (Benne) and you can also order lite bites from the bar. We had the fries and crispy pork belly and they were both great. The ambience at the bar is wonderful with fireplaces and live music. ”
