Happy Birthday, Princess!

Happy Birthday, Princess!
Historic Asheville Inn Turns 90 -- Celebrate With a Deal!

Princess Anne Hotel in Asheville
In 1924, nurse Anne O'Connell--called "Princess" by her patients due to her long hair and charismatic charms--opened up a hotel in Asheville amid an economic boom. Her hotel promised "comfort first" and often housed the families of tuberculosis patients who had come to the mountains for healing fresh air.

This year, the Princess Anne Hotel celebrates 90 years, during which it served as a psychiatric hospital and a boarding house for retirees, in addition to an inn for area visitors.

Owner Howard Stafford purchased the hotel in 2003 and spent two years restoring the 16-room inn to its former glory. Today the Princess Anne offers all the amenities of a boutique hotel, along with personal hospitality and a full gourmet breakfast--all less than 5 minutes from Downtown Asheville.
