The Omni Grove Park Inn is nestled on the side of Sunset Mountain looking out over the Blue Ridge Mountains and the skyline of Asheville NC. While just 5 minutes from downtown we are in the center of a beautiful neighborhood. Ours is one of the American Souths oldest and most famous Grand Resorts. The Inn is a favorite year round destination for both leisure and business guests. Its splendid old world charm amenities and a long tradition of exceptional service and hospitality make it a place to savor as one of the most enduring original and exciting resorts in America.

Historic retreat

A visit to Grove Park Inn not only a great getaway, but a trip back in time. The decor/archtecture has been maintained consistent with the original design, yet with all the modern comforts one could want. We had a mountain view room, definitely worth the increased fee. Both Vue 1913 and Edison's provided fabulous food, with service to match. My wife and I always love getting to Asheville for this grand old inn.

A dream stay at an historic inn

We had been dying to stay at the Grove Park and were so excited to get the opportunity to during the busy fall season. We loved having cocktails on the Sunset Patio and dinner at the new Vue 1913 restaurant. Everyone was so hospitable and courteous to us and we had a fabulous time. We would love to go back.

Ask for a room in the historic part of the inn. You get a great experience riding the elevators that are hidden to the side of the fireplaces!

Nice but not that nice for the price

Definitely not of the caliber to charge $300-$400 / night. Additional charges for everything. A $25/ night resort fee that covers pool access, internet, newspaper, in-room coffee service and lobby refreshments (items that I've normally gotten at other hotels and resorts included in the room charge). Lobby refreshments were water and apples. If it's not optional, why not just add it to the nightly room charge instead of trying to make the room charge look less? Another $15 / night parking fee (or $22/night for valet parking) Beds were not comfortable and pillows were horrible. We did ask for additional pillows which were delivered to the room promptly and slightly better. Great hall (lobby) is very nice with large stone fireplaces, bar and plenty of seating area to relax, read, and just enjoy the view. View is of mountains is nice but not spectacular. We ate lunch in the Edison and it was about $60 for a salad, tea, two beers and nachos. Breakfast buffet for 2 was $59.22 ($23 each plus tip), but very good. Spa was way overpriced so we went offsite to local spa for about 1/3 the cost. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Bottom line, I've stayed at nicer bed&breakfast places, been more comfortable, hot tub, and least as good breakfast with better views and spent a lot less money and I even booked the GPI through Obitz and got one of the better rates. Grand total 3 nights with all meals and misc expenses at GPI = $1,100. Not counting eating out, which we mostly did. OK for one time experience but probably won't do again.

Stuck in corner

Beautiful hotel. Loved the view from the restaurants and bars, but we were put in the far corner with a view of the ac units of the next building. And we still paid full price. Said they couldn't change it since we booked outside. We were only there one night, and didn't spend much time in the room, but be aware that could ruin a stay. Ask for a room with a view.

Very nice hotel in the grand style

We were visiting family and the hotel was close to where they live. The hotel and grounds were very grand and the trees along the drive all lit up at light were like driving up to a fancy nightclub. The rooms were not the most luxurious I've ever seen, but they were nice and the hotel was very interesting and had great views out the back. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends.

Wonderful time

We had a great time. The hotel was beautiful and the staff was the friendliest we have ever experienced. In fact, my husband and I commented several times on the smiles ALL workers had as they worked and didn't notice anyone was watching. The only negative was that the bathroom in the room was very tiny. Only 1 could be in there at a time. We watched the 4th of July fireworks from our room! The view was beautiful!!
