I'm not against paying top dollar to get quality, but the price of this hotel did not equal what we got in return. Let me say the staff here is exceptional and some of the best we've encountered anywhere. And I think staying here mid-week or during the off season would have gotten better results. But for $700/nt we got... More

My wife and I stayed at the Biltmore for two nights. During our stay we indulged in both hotel restaurants as well as the lounge the spa and additional amenities. Found the customer service to be quite pleasant. The staff makes it a point to discover what occasion you might be celebrating and then they go out of their way... More

I booked our stay through American Express Fine Hotels and Resorts. It was fantastic to arrive at the Fours Seasons and receive a very nice upgrade due to the Amex deal. Check in was easy with Sydney - she was efficient and wonderful. Our room in Cottage 5 was perfection. The entire property is perfection. The room was gorgeous, the... More

The architecture and plantings are gorgeous, and the Coral Casino, with its 50 meter pool overlooking the Pacific, is a stellar facility. We swam in the 70 degree Pacific from the Coral Casino's beach - clear as a bell, and the "American Riviera" nickname is apt.

The hotel property is beautiful, and located next to the beach. The rooms are decorated in California mission style and are just gorgeous. It was my birthday, so the staff surprised me with a cake! There are a lot of families at this hotel, but I thought it was perfect for a romantic weekend. My only complaint was that wifi... More

Stayed at four seasons biltmore. A true beauty. A place for those looking to appreciate rather than those looking to be wowed. An old building very nicely refinished with excellent services. Morning walks, biking, huge pool and club accesses across the street and for as relaxed as the property is, there is a nice evening buzz in the hotel lounge.

We had the good fortune of venturing to the Biltmore for 4th of July this year and it fits my list of needs. If you have read my reviews you know I am partial to the elegant old world hotels who maintain their charm and elegance (despite their age). She did not disappoint. If you want a glass and chrome...

Unplanned visit to the Four Seasons as we were staying in the Belmond El Encanto but didn't enjoy our stay there so decide to move. Turned out to be a great decision! Greeted by Will at reception who was a breath of fresh air from the robotic reception staff that you tend to meet these days. He was genuinely welcoming... More

Everything was just spectacular. We cannot stop raving about the terrific service and accommodations to my friends, family, and just about anyone who asks me about the resort. The location is perfect. The resort is beautiful. The staff and service are unparalleled, as they truly aim to make your experience a memorable one. Perfect all around. Cannot say enough great...
