I recently stayed at The Umstead Hotel and Spa for a week-long business trip and had a wonderful stay. My room was huge, comfortable, and spotlessly clean, with twice-daily maid service and turn down service at night. The bed and linens were so comfortable and I really enjoyed the separate shower and soaking tub. The in-room Keurig and tablet-based room... More

This is a top notch professionally run hotel The entrance and casual bar area is great for small casual meeting with a good range of menu and bar drink. The room itself is humongous and well maintained. This is a world class proper and always look... More

I like to stay in a really nice hotel when I visit an area I haven't been to before. I'm not sure I really like North Carolina, but I love the Umstead. The room is fabulous, the pool, the food, the gift shop, and the hospitality.

What a great hotel.. Lovely atmosphere, superb service, spacious room and Herons has amazing food. Pity I did not have a chance to really use the spa section. The attention to detail through the property was stunning with great artwork and everything incredibly well presented

I haven't been to that area in a long time and what a surprise and delight this hotel is. From the moment you enter the lobby you know this is special. It is unbelievably beautiful and fantastically appointed and how many hotels have a fine art gallery? Food and service in the restaurant and bar are beyond the pale. I'd... More

I would highly recommend the Umstead. The property is great, beautiful rooms, excellent service, and amazing food and bar service on site. As a host location for conferences, this is a great choice. One of the best I've experienced.
