The Hampton Inn Black Mountain opened its doors on April 25.

Black Mountain's newest hotel is now open for business. 

Global brand Hampton by Hilton, announced today the opening of its newest property, Hampton Inn by Hilton Black Mountain. 

Adjacent to the Swannanoa River and within walking distance to downtown Black Mountain, the 95-room hotel includes an indoor pool, fitness center, outdoor patio, 600-square-foot meeting room, lobby bar with craft beers and wines, and on-site parking.

“We are excited to open the newest hotel in Black Mountain to support the town’s growth and popularity as a tourist destination,” said general manager Andrea Coon. “At Hampton Inn by Hilton Black Mountain, guests can count on a worry-free stay with comfortable spaces that are intuitively designed to feel familiar and inviting and reflect our local community.”

The hotel is developed, owned, and managed by LPCA, LLC, a Hickory-based hotel company. 

“Black Mountain is such a unique destination, catering to students, families, adventure travelers, and people seeking something off the beaten path,” said Brad Lail, managing partner of LPCA, LLC. “We are pleased to be able to offer a new lodging option for Black Mountain and to be able to support its growing tourism sector.”  

The property is located at 306 Black Mountain Avenue, near a forthcoming greenway and less than a 10-minute walk to the historic center of the Town of Black Mountain. The hotel is 15 miles east of downtown Asheville. 

“Hampton Inn by Hilton Black Mountain’s support of the expanding Riverwalk Greenway near their property shows a real commitment to our community,” remarked Jessica Trotman, director of planning and development of the Town of Black Mountain.

Nestled deep in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Black Mountain was voted by TripAdvisor as one of the “Prettiest Small Towns in America to Vacation.”

“Black Mountain is a great place to be with its progressive arts legacy from Black Mountain College, quaint restaurants and shops, and multiple conference centers and festivals,” stated Bob McMurray, executive director of the Black Mountain-Swannanoa Chamber of Commerce. “As the town continues to grow and evolve, without losing its distinctive charm, additional hotel options like Hampton by Hilton will better serve our visitors and community members.”

“On behalf of Montreat College, we are thrilled that Hampton by Hilton is coming to Black Mountain as a quality, reliable lodging option for our students and their families, donors, and conference center attendees,” said Paul Maurer, president of the college.
