A HAVEN CRAFTED IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN Blue Ridge Mountains in every direction. Arts and local culture at each intersection. And inside, an Asheville-inspired, independently-cultivated character that's as vibrant as the community around it. Locals recognize this historic landmark as the former BB&T building, the largest building in Asheville. Its once-aging facade has been replaced with warm stone, modern steel, and glass that lets the Asheville sun stream in. More than a hotel, Hotel Arras will be a symbol of our city's storied past and its bright future.
