Complimentary parking and Wi-Fi
Recent guests said accommodations need renovation
This 33-suite boutique hotel earns praise from previous guests for its location near ample shops and restaurants in downtown Asheville, North Carolina, and for its spacious accommodations. Rooms come with flat-screen TVs in the bedrooms and bathrooms, complimentary Wi-Fi access, wet bars, minifridges and Keurig coffee makers. Apart from in-room perks, visitors were also impressed with the hotel's extra touches, including everything from welcome Champagne at check-in to chocolates left on the pillow at the nightly turndown service. Guests also have access to the fitness center and two restaurants, Isa's Bistro and the Haywood Park Cafe. But the gym and eateries are the extent of the on-site features at the Haywood Park Hotel; guests looking for entertainment and additional activities will have to venture outside of the property. Overall traveler reviews of the Haywood Park Hotel were mixed: Some guests raved about the service staff and the hotel's downtown location, while others noted the accommodations looked tired and could use an update.

Critic Reviews


As central as it comes in downtown Asheville, the Haywood is a boutique gem. Set in a 1920s classic revival style department store, the upper-middle-range 33-room property comes with a hefty price tag, however.



Once the site of a Bon Marché and Ivey's department store, the hotel gives a nod to its history with mannequins and announcements on the elevator like "Fourth Floor, Women's Clothing." A player piano makes music in the lobby.
