    Can't remember the hotel I stayed at on a drive through the area, it was a chain, was fine and was located near the Biltmore Estate. But I'd definitely check out the Asheville Brewing Company and a couple of the other pubs in town. Some really nice spots.

    Are you a AAA member? You might be able to get a good rate at the Days Inn.

    I'm not near my folks right now. They seemingly go to Asheville, N.C. every two weeks.

    There's a Fairfield Inn right next to the airport.

    Lots of solid little places to grab grub in town. There's a German place in the middle of downtown. Bier House, I think. Can't remember. Also, the Tupelo Honey Cafe is a little hippie, but the food is out of this world good.

    I can definitely recommend Nona Mia's for Italian food. No, I haven't been there, but my folks brought back a pizza they'd bought on Thursday night for dinner on Friday night.

    If that pizza isn't the best I've ever tasted in my life, I couldn't tell you which was better. And being stored in a hotel refrigerator, then later a cooler did not degrade the taste at all.

    Going there this weekend. Splurged and booked 2 nights at Biltmore Village Inn. Told me wife I found "a nice place." She said, "Don't tell me any more. Let me be surprised."

    Hope it's as nice as I think it's going to be.

    Here's a photo. The rooms are smallish but comfortable.

    Last time I went to the Biltmore (over Christmas, my bro lives in Charlotte), I saw that place that's on the actual property of the Biltmore. Is that what you're talking about? If so, that looks awesome. I'd love to stay there although we also went to dinner at the Grove Park Inn and I wouldn't mind a nice weekend there either.

    Been to Asheville once. Twenty-four years ago. Stayed at the Grove Park Inn. Wonderful. Not near airport but the town ain't that big.

    Check to see if the Tourists are in town (pun not intended). McCormick Field is a nice place to watch a game.

    Six rooms, whirlpool baths, fireplaces.

    Be advised that if you take the Biltmore Mansion tour, you will get your exercise for the day.

    I recommend the Asheville Arms.
    Also, try the Asheville Diner.
