Our stay in Asheville is comming up at the end of May, so I can't yet tell you about ;)
About bidding history, sorry to say, I don't really remember as at that time I booked lot's of other US hotels for our vacation trip,
but remembering my frustation it could have been my first try - so likely an overbid.
My comment on my bidding win means that I'd better bidding for 4* to avoid Crown Plaza.
As I know, bidding on 3* doesn't defend on winning Crown Plaza ... (Price.line!).
