The Windsor of Asheville

On Tuesday evening we attended the grand opening of the fabulous Windsor Boutique Hotel in Asheville, North Carolina.

There was live music from Chris Rhodes and wonderful food from several great restaurants in the area as well as wine and interesting new people to visit with.

The hotel is beautifully decorated with every comfort of home included in each of fourteen private vacation ready rooms.

I love the look of exposed brick walls which many of the rooms have.

The very beautiful Nina Kis Bradbury is the Property Manager.

Each of the rooms is exquisitely and uniquely decorated.

Full kitchens, a washer and dryer as well as luxurious baths are part of each suite.

A rotating exhibit of the work of nineteen local Asheville artists is on display throughout the hotel which can be purchased to add to your collection.

I wore black and silver items from the Travelers Collection from Chico's for this evening.

The hotel will soon include an Italian restaurant and shop where you will be able to buy fabulous antiques and accessories like the ones in the hotel. The designers actually traveled to Paris to buy a lot of the items used on the property.

This very beautiful lady told me she was almost sixty years old after I told her about the blog. Amazing! She is Karen W. Nowlin, an Aesthetician and provider of PCA Skin Care. I would say it is working very well for her!

Laura Cousins is the Creative Art Director for the hotel. It was such a treat to meet her because we immediately found that we were kindred spirits on so many levels. I felt as if we had known each other for years after only a few minutes.

This beautiful and extremely talented lady is Leeann Mayes, the creative interior designer of this amazing property as well as manager.

The convenient location in the heart of the city makes The Windsor the perfect place to stay on your Asheville vacation. You can easily walk to many great shops, galleries, sidewalk cafés and restaurants. 
(People watching in Asheville is a special treat.)

Thank you for joining me on this fun journey through midlife and beyond.

I love Asheville. Will have to check out this hotel, however, I imagine the rooms will be booked months in advance!

Looks beautiful! Going back to Nashville has been on our "to do" list and this looks just like the place to stay.

Thank you for sharing this with us. We are always looking for a place to stay in Asheville.
What a great location in the heart of the city.
The rooms look lovely and the pricing is what one would expect for a downtown boutique property. Having local artists' works on display is wonderful, too.
Great posting!
