The author’s room

ROAD WARRIOR SUPPORT

The suite’s living room had a bar with high-stop stools, a comfortable couch with a coffee table, and two arm chairs by the windows, although a desk for writing and getting work done was missing. Instead, I settled in on the couch and used a cushion as a lapdesk for my Chromebook, which was comfortable and worked just fine. There were sufficient outlets by the couch and bed to keep all of my gadgets charged.

The living room setup was suitable for smaller meetings, although larger groups could find meeting space in the downtown area a block away, Elijah informed me.

WELLNESS

The hotel has a small spa that offers a variety of massage therapies and skin treatments.  It offers day passes to the nearby YMCA in lieu of having a fitness center.

DINING

The Windsor is within walking distance of several excellent dining establishments. At Elijah’s recommendation I tried Rosetta’s Kitchen, known for vegan and vegetarian takes on southern cuisine, for dinner and Over Easy for breakfast and both were excellent. In addition, the hotel has partnered with a local food delivery company called Valet Gourmet that brings dishes from the downtown to your room.

BOTTOM LINE

The Windsor is all about creating an urban oasis for guests: This is not a fast-food hotel experience. This is a hotel room you will actually want to spend time in –  time to relax, work, and simply live in. And while the hotel is located in the heart of downtown, it also manages to serve as a getaway from the hustle and bustle. I had quickly spread out in my room, much as I do when at home, and was sad to leave. There’s no question that I’ll be contacting the Windsor on my next visit to Asheville.
