    Afternoon Halloween Minimony

    We had to postpone the ceremony due to COVID like many other people, but we still wanted to get married. We decided on Asheville because we love it and it is a half way point between us and our parents. Debbie, the wedding coordinator, is PHENOMENAL. We did this all sight unseen, no tastings, all through email and did not have a single issue. We requested various menu changes which were done without hesitation. She helped with table décor - we exchanged photos and ideas. We didn't decorate too much aside from that - it already looks nice. We discussed various ideas of where to have me walk based on where the sun would be at that time and she went out and looked at various times within the time range that we would be there to give me the best placing for the ceremony.... I could go on and on and on but essentially, she and everyone who helped us out that day, made it a fun and easy day when everything else had been difficult. We were behind on time - which was our fault, but they were accommodating and helped us out where they could. We learned a lot about what to do and what not to do (again all on us for the what not to do) for the "Big Day" when all of our friends and family can attend.

    AC Hotel Asheville Downtown's reply:

    Hi Amber!
    Thank you so much for the kind words! We were honored to be a part of your special day and cannot wait for you to be able to celebrate with all of your friends and family this year! You have been such a pleasure to work with and we look forward to having you in Asheville again! We wish you and Tyler all the best! :)
    Cheers!

    Smooth sailing in Asheville at the AC

    After nearly 18 months of correspondence and planning, it's my pleasure to share how pleased my family and I are with the quality of service and level of responsiveness from Debbie and the entire team in Asheville!

    AC Hotel Asheville Downtown's reply:

    Thank you so much for the kind words, Thomas! It was an absolute pleasure working with you and your family over the past year and having you all stay with us! Best wishes to the wedding couple! :)

    A Perfect Experience

    Although we had a short timeline time when planning our wedding welcome reception for our son in Asheville, our experience at the AC Marriott downtown location was as if we had planned it for months! Everything was exactly as we wanted. The food was top notch. My husband and I travel quite extensively, and have had our share of “hotel food.” But we were pleasantly surprised at the quality, flavors, and presentation of all the food that we had! Our guests continue to remark on how delicious the food was. The venue was just beautiful. The views of Asheville and the mountains are breathtaking. You get the views not only from the reserved space itself, but also from the outdoor patio and rooftop bar area that are adjoining. Having all of our guests watched and photographed the sunset was like no extra cost entertainment! From the sales contact person to the events coordinator to the servers and bartenders, all were professional, friendly, and accommodating. Debbie Diaz was our point of contact person when booking this venue. Since we live out of state, it was so important to have someone like Debbie to explain exactly what the space looked and felt like, giving us her suggestions when asked. She even took pictures on her own phone to send us to get different angles. Our phone conferences and email exchanges were done in a very timely manner. I just can’t say enough about our experience!
