The Biltmore lives up to its name. Lovely foyer at reception. Everything looks just like photos online. Our room was on the 10th floor, and was very spacious. The reason for the 4 rather than 5 star is the loss of the use of so much room. As I said, room was big, but too much "dead space" - the area wasn't utilized well. There is a step up landing from the room going towards the bathroom. Huge closets. Probably at one time a dressing area - which it should be again. This landing was wasted and not used. A makeup vanity or a work desk would have been ideal. Ate at the Italian restaurant Fontana - good food, fabulous service made it nice. After dinner cocktails at the Cellar Club bar - nice drinks, good service. Friendly people in the small shop. In the morning wanted to eat at Cascades, got turn around and ended up at Fontana's outside seating - need better signage. Missed breakfast by less than 5 minutes and they woulkd not fix even a scrambled egg - that was disappointing and I was surprised since we had just miss the timing by a few minutes. then realized we were at Fontana's. We were on a schedule and too pressed for time so had salads that did not impress, maybe because we were disappointed in not getting breakfast. Sitting out by the pool is a nice way to have drinks and small servings of tapas. Great beds. View of golf course from our room window. Now can say "been there, done that".
