Raines, a premier hospitality management, development, and operating group based in South Carolina, is proud to announce the addition of The Foundry Hotel to its management portfolio. Asheville’s historic former steel foundry underwent extensive updates and renovations to open in 2018 as The Foundry Hotel, a Curio Collection by Hilton property. The 87-room boutique hotel offers an authentically Asheville experience complemented by Benne on Eagle, the award-winning Appalachian-inspired restaurant led by local chef and culinary pioneer John Fleer.

“Asheville has become a leading destination in the Southeast and is consistently recognized as a desirable place to live and to visit,” said Grey Raines, President of Raines. “This high-barrier market is in line with our growth plans and provides a foundation for how we approach operations and bringing significant value to our owners and investors.”

The Foundry Hotel is the latest addition to Raines’ growing boutique hotel division, which also includes Hotel Florence, a historic adaptive reuse hotel located in downtown Florence.
