An Artful Haven in Asheville

Downtown Asheville's Premier Hotel

Visit our unique Asheville, NC, hotel

Named after a region in France famous for its woven fabrics, Kimpton Hotel Arras reflects the tapestry of color and energy that is Asheville, charmingly known as “the Paris of the South.”

Our historic transformation of the former BB&T Bank building into a 128-room boutique hotel includes a reimagined exterior crafted of stone, metal and Art Deco flourishes. Inside, the all-new interior awakens the soul with a sophisticated palette inspired by 360° mountain views. Lush leathers, velvet textures, European oak planks and various industrial-inspired metals take up residence throughout the hotel. Stroll through the open, airy lobby past commissioned works by local artists. Retreat to your guestroom or suite to your comfortable refuge surrounded by cityscapes and majestic mountain views.

The picture is complete with our lively cocktail bar, Mediterranean-inspired restaurant and an attentive team ready to curate an Asheville experience just for you. Your artful haven in the heart of Asheville is here at last.
