Great Hotel with a perfect location right outside the entrance to the Biltmore Estates. The Inn on the Biltmore Estate was full for the time we wanted to visit so we opened our search to the larger hotel chains and we found this property by accident because of its inclusion in the Marriot's Autograph Collection. It was considerably less expensive than The Inn, and we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived.
The hotel is located on the main street, but the main building of the hotel has a driveway and courtyard that is tucked in away from the main thoroughfare. Richard Kessler is the owner and designer of a small luxe collection of hotels under the umbrella of Marriot, and you can see his distinct style throughout the property. The hotel theme of plush fabrics, leathers, and other interesting materials is masterfully tied together. The lobby has unique wood panelling, some of which was shipped in from all over the world, taxidermy, antlers, embossed leathers, and a rotating gallery of paintings and other artwork which flows directly into the reception area and the restaurant, the Red Stag Grill. The staff was very friendly and efficent. We were unable to get a room in the main building and had to stay in the other wing located across the street, which was a slight inconvenience.
The room was sumptuously decorated in similar fashion as the rest of the hotel, with velvets and plush, uphostered chairs. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom had a giant soaking tub.
We ate at The Red Stag Grill several times and we were consistently pleased with the selection and quality of the food. The service was very good and the drinks expertly mixed at their large stone slab of a bar. The entire hotel had a very intersting and trendy, but eccentric vibe to it. We really enjoyed it overall and would definitely stay there again.
