DRIVING TO ASHEVILLE
If you live in the near region, there are a lot of advantages to driving. For one, parking at the Crowne Plaza is free. Second, you can easily make trips in to town to snag supplies. And third, there is less of a risk your trip will be delayed due to inclement weather! The address to put into your GPS is:
Crowne Plaza Resort
One Resort Drive
Asheville, NC 28806
FLYING INTO ASHEVILLE
Our airport code is AVL. It’s a small regional airport, but well maintained. When booking your flight, consider that big northern cities (Chicago, New York) may not be good to have in your route, since this is winter and there are sometimes snowstorms!
The Asheville airport isn’t always the cheapest to fly into, so sometimes attendees see fit to instead fly into GSP (Greenville, SC), ATL (Atlanta, GA), or CLT (Charlotte, NC). From there you’d need to rent a car or carpool to Asheville, a few hours away.
The Crowne Plaza airport shuttle will be at the Asheville airport every hour on the hour starting at 9am on Tuesday, December 26th and Wednesday, December 27th. The fee is $10 cash per person. You must pay in cash to the driver so please don't forget to bring $10!
The shuttle will also be running every hour on the hour for departures on Januray 1st and January 2nd starting at 5am. The departure schedule will leave from the Foxfire exterior doors and Foxfire will serve as a waiting lounge on departure days for when you have checked out of your rooms.
If you want to make use of the airport shuttle service outside of these scheduled days, you will need to call the hotel in advance at 828-254-3211 and give them your transportation information over the phone. Please give them several days notice if possible in order to guarantee a ride! Here is the airport shuttle request form for arrivals and departures outside of the above listed days.
