Accommodations

Host Hotel

The host hotel for SASHTO 2013 is the Omni Grove Park Inn. We are pleased to have the entire hotel reserved for the conference, Sunday through Tuesday night. The Inn is celebrating its 100th Anniversary in 2013 and is undergoing $25 million in renovations and restorations for its Centennial Celebration.

Where to Stay

The conference room block is full at the Omni Grove Park Inn; however, we have partnered with the Renaissance and Aloft hotels to provide additional accommodations. Both hotels are located in the heart of downtown Asheville, within walking distance of shopping, dining and entertainment. Transportation between these hotels and the Omni GPI will be provided throughout the conference.

Renaissance Asheville Hotel by Marriott (conference room block is full)
“The Renaissance Asheville Hotel is nestled among the Blue Ridge & Great Smoky Mountains, one of the most beautiful places on Earth. With the completion of our multi-million dollar renovation to our public space and restaurant, our Asheville hotel proves itself to be one of the best hotels in downtown Asheville.” - Hotel website

Aloft Asheville Downtown (conference room block is full)
“Not a bad seat in the house, whether you want views of Mount Pisgah or want to people watch over Biltmore Avenue, there is a room for you. Want a private pool cabana room with direct access to Air Level? No problem. You’ll be amaze by our Downtown Asheville hotel rooms overlooking Biltmore Avenue and the mountains…come on you know you want to look.” - Hotel website

Things to Know

Conference Transportation

SASHTO will be providing shuttle service between the Omni Grove Park Inn, Renaissance and Aloft hotels.

Weather

Asheville's climate is refreshingly mild, with summer temperatures rarely rising above 90 degrees. The average high temperature for August is 83 degrees and the average low temperature is 62 degrees. Because temperatures can be chilly at night, you may want to bring a light sweater or jacket.

Attire

No coat or tie is needed; polo shirts and khakis are appropriate for every event (excluding the CEO Reception and Dinner). The Closing Reception will be held at the Biltmore Estate, with a reception on the South Lawn and tour of the house. Attire for the evening also will be business casual (no jeans, please). Comfortable shoes are recommended (no tennis shoes, please). You may also want to have a light sweater or jacket.

Go Local

In partnership with the Asheville Grown Business Alliance, we are excited to provide delegates a Love Asheville—Go Local card, which offers discounts at more than 350 local businesses, including restaurants, shops and boutiques. By using your Go Local card, you will help support local, independent businesses. Additionally, a portion of the purchase of the cards goes to the Asheville City Schools Foundation and will help support students by funding teacher-led professional development grants, artists in residence, after-school enrichment as well as scholarships to graduating seniors.

SASHTO Dollars

SASHTO has once again partnered with the Asheville Convention and Visitors Bureau and local merchants to provide each registered guest SASHTO Dollars that will be redeemable at local merchants during the conference. They work just like cash. All you have to do is look for the "SASHTO Dollars" sign in the merchant's window, and when it's time to pay your bill simply pull out your SASHTO Dollars!
