Asheville City Council Approves Extended Stay Hotel Changes

Asheville residents can still expect a 103 room Extended Stay Hotel on Biltmore Avenue, now including a restaurant and bar and an aesthetic redesign.

The City Council approved changes to the project plan at its January 25 meeting by 5-2 votes.

Councilor Kim Roney voted against the amendments after expressing concerns about a lack of updates to multimodal infrastructure, such as the addition of bus stops, and safe access for people crossing the street.

Councilor Gwen Wisler also voted against the project, saying that while she sees the amendments as an improvement, she wanted to remain consistent with her vote against after the hotel’s first proposal in 2019.
