Don't Just Take Our Word For It

See what our clients have to say about the complimentary and time-saving help Explore Asheville can provide in your search for accommodations for your wedding guests.

You guys have been so helpful and easy to deal with, it made the hotel booking so much easier.

I really appreciated Beth's help with the hotel block search. Beth was responsive and even made a couple of specific follow-ups for me. I would definitely recommend this free service to others planning an event in Asheville!

I had a TON of proposals sent to me and I can’t thank you enough for setting that up. It would have taken me significantly more time to get even half of the proposals, let alone find the hotels, without your help.

Beth McKinney was so wonderful to work with when trying to find a hotel block for our Wedding. The CVB’s service was so helpful since they contacted all of the hotels in the area for us and the hotels just sent me a quote. With being from out of town, this saved me so much time and hassle. Beth was so polite, and very quick to respond to any of my questions. I would highly recommend using the CVB to find hotel blocks for your wedding!

I do not have enough exemplary words to describe the Asheville CVB! From my first call, I was directed to the most helpful person-Beth McKinney!  She initiated help and, for example, reached out to the many Asheville hotels so I didn’t have to go through that logistical nightmare. She made the process so much easier and seamless. I was so much more comfortable planning and picking this long distance wedding location because of the services of Asheville CVB.  I was also contacted asking if I’d like information for my wedding goodie bags delivered to my door. I do not have enough superlatives to recommend the Asheville CVB!

Our experience using the hotel booking service was great! We are both from Asheville but live in Southern Pines now so we are familiar with downtown and hotels. However, SO much has changed and been added that it was one less hassle we had to deal with! We got all kinds of quotes via email and then just picked the one we lied best! It also saved our guest money as the same rooms that weekend that were not blocked for our wedding are now almost triple the price!!

The process is easy and free! Here's how it works:

  1. Give us the details: The number of rooms you need, the ideal location and price range.
  2. We'll then send your request to the hotels that fit your criteria.
  3. The hotels will contact you directly with rates and availability.
