We were very pleased with Whitegate. The owners and staff were extremely gracious and made us feel welcome from the start. Anything we needed was promptly provided including tickets to area attractions, massages, and reservations at downtown restaurants. We stayed in the Ralph Waldo Emerson Suite which provided the perfect combination of privacy when needed and social contact with guests...

So a few weeks ago I was interested in going on a small romantic getaway with my soon to be wife. The staff at 1889 Whitegate Inn went above and beyond to ensure that we had a great stay. The room was just beyond belief, absolutely amazing! I would recommend to anyone!

After a visit to the properties website, I then turned to Tripadvisor.com and saw many, many positive reviews. I have been in the hotel business for 20+ years and after visiting the property, I can honestly say that it is all true. I would spend the extra money and stay in the Carriage House, the rooms are as modern as...

The 1889 Whitegate Inn is very centrally located for exploring downtown Asheville. When a snow storm hit during our stay, the staff was extremely helpful in determining what restaurants were open and what we could do around town. They even helped ensure that the massage therapist was able to make it in for my wife's pregnancy massage!

The 1889 Whitegate Inn is just beautiful. Our stay was so relaxing, breakfast was delicious, and the staff was so friendly and attentive. We had the Walt Whitman suite, which was luxurious and cozy, and the steam shower was divine. Book your room now!

We decided to go out of town for a long weekend rather last-minute. I shopped around online and was really reliant on the images, testimonies and reviews I found because it was so short notice. We found the Whitegate Inn to be just as pictured which is a real relief for online shopping like that. The staff was very friendly,...
