Certainly a non-inflated 5-star hotel. It lives up to the rating.. genuinely and naturally courteous service. nice contemporary décor. modern and extremely clean, although there was some slight residue surrounding some of the elevator buttons, barely noticeable but should be wiped off. food at restaurant was innovative and creative and tasted good. beautiful modern artwork in restaurant and throughout the...

Each time I stay at The Umstead Hotel, I am more and more impressed by the attentiveness and professionalism of the Valet, Bell Man, Front Desk Agents, Restaurant Wait Staff and the unobtrusively friendly housekeeping staff. The Umstead always reminds me of what it means to be pampered and that they are keen to earn your business. I went to... More

I've stayed at The Unstead well over a dozen times since it opened. The customer experience is outstanding! From the moment they open their front doors to greet you, to their creative and delicious cuisine, the outstanding collection of artwork, and their nightly turn-down service. Set among the trees alongside Umstead Lake, the property is serene and flora-filled. The spa... More

Everything at the hotel was so nice; the rooms, the grounds, the staff, etc. We enjoyed their massive patio area for drinks and walking around the lake. The rooms were very clean and beautifully decorated. We stayed as part of a wedding gift and the hotel gave us great service: champagne and strawberries and a room with a balcony. It... More

I stayed for 3 nights in March during a business trip. The place is absolutely amazing. Although it is quite close to Highway, once you checkin the hotel it feels like a small little cocoon in a different world. The service is top class(almost to extent of being over the top). The food is great, restaurant brilliant. I did not... More

The rooms are spacious and well furnished with excellent bedding, comfortable furniture and very well laid out. It was very quiet and peaceful here, and overall it had a spa like... More

This is a first class hotel that is excellent for business travelers, as well as those on vacation. The rooms are beautiful, the bathrooms luxurious and the grounds are beautiful. I also tried the spa, which in a class by itself.

We felt like we were staying at a Four Seasons for half the price! Everyone was very attentive and courteous. We truly felt they valued us as a guest. The room was wonderful. The bathroom was large and spacious with a large count for both my wife and me all of our stuff and a tub and huge walk-in shower.... More

I stayed at The Umstead Hotel and Spa this past Saturday night with my boyfriend for a night of relaxation. We did the Hideaway Package, and it was amazing! First, we arrived and were greeted by 3 doormen. All were very friendly. Check-in was quick, and we were escorted to the elevator. On the way, the receptionist explained to us... More
