Any time that you stay at a historic property, you know that the property won't be brand new but there are certain standards that you expect to be met at a five star property regardless of the age of the property. The room was huge - our suite was a one bedroom corner suite with three sets of beautiful windows, letting in lots of sunlight. But many of the basics you would expect to find in a suite, especially when you are traveling with a family, were not there: no refrigerator, no dining table, no cooktop/ kitchenette. Luckily the minibar was missing a drink so we were able to stash one cup of milk inside for our toddler. It would have been difficult traveling with a little baby as there was nowhere to store drinks or food. We would have been better of staying in a regular hotel room at a fraction of the price.
Regarding the Biltmore Kids amenities - make sure to request them at check in. The front desk staff does NOT offer the amenities (kids' bathrobes, cookies and milk at turndown) to you. You have to know about the amenities and ask or you won't ever receive them. (We first learned about the amenities after reading about them in the hotel brochure AFTER the kids went to sleep - too late!) We actually asked for them the next day and we never did receive the milk and cookies, despite being promised that room service was on the way to the room to deliver them. Lesson learned - ask often and early!!
