Hilton Asheville celebrates Mom!

Hilton Asheville celebrates Mom!

At the Hilton Asheville, we want to honor all mothers! Show Mom how much you love her by treating her to a delicious Mother’s Day Brunch at Roux or a luxurious spa treatment at our Sensibilities Spa.

Our Sensibilities Spa Mother’s Day package begins with a Sweet Red Rose Facial. A potent blend of Bulgarian roses, rosehips, calendula and honey provide “exercise for the skin.” This stimulating treatment encourages circulation and strengthens capillaries to leave the skin’s tone and texture renewed. Following the facial, your mom will receive a Radiant Retreat Body Wrap, where she will experience the antioxidant properties of acai berry, ginger and plum, which fight free radicals and aid hydration while rice peptides and white clay purify the skin. Our Mother’s Day package is available for $199 and can be booked as an appointment through May 8th or may be bought as a gift certificate through May 8th to be used whenever the recipient would like to schedule.

Roux will be offering a special Mother’s Day Brunch, which is highlighted by a scrumptious buffet as well as a delightful selection of soups and salads, sandwiches and entrees. Below is the full menu. If you’re in Asheville for Mother’s Day, we hope you choose to spend it at the Hilton Asheville!
