“Just perfect...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I stayed at this hotel b/c the main hotel I was supposed to have been a guest was booked.
This hotel is wonderful. I loved the fireplace at registration and the cider. The rooms are spacious and clean. They thought of everything...A door that separates the toilet from the main bathroom. A larger door to separate the bathroom from the rest of the space. Comfy beds and large tub. The only thing I would change is the nickel and dimeness of some of the amenities. For instance, you have the tray with an assortment of coffee and tea and an individual coffee pot to warm the water. However, the bottled water is five bucks each. If you go downstairs and get water, it's free. I'd also want them to fix the Wi-Fi. It was in and out a bit. All in all a great place, located smack dab in the middle of a village with cool shops and a Starbucks in eyeshot.

From the moment you arrive you are in awe. The lobby is so different from the usual. The grand fireplace welcomes you to sit and look around. When you open the door to your room soft music is playing from the bose stereo. Fabulous art work is in the room and halls. The deep tub was so relaxing after traveling all day. The bed was very restful. Breakfast was great the red potatoes are a must have. We were going to Biltmore that day and the location was perfect. Awesome stay!

We were married on July 4th and we always plan a trip for our anniversary. This year we planned a trip to Asheville and stayed at the Grand Bohemian Hotel. It was wonderful!!! We did not expect to find such a "grand" hotel like this when we arrived. The service was very professional and the room was beautiful. We enjoyed the music playing every time we came into our room plus the wine. The hotel was designed to give you the lodge type feeling. The art throughout the hotel was absolutely wonderful. The food at the Red Stag Restaurant was outstanding. We were actually amazed at how well the designers were able to put a hotel on this property like they did. We were there several years ago and could not imagine how it was going to look. I must say "well done". Yes there was noise, but when you book a hotel in the middle of the city you expect noise. The one thing I did not like was they allowed pets, but they do have designated rooms for people who book with pets. I don't book rooms that allow pet because of health issues. The price was a little more than we usually pay but it was worth it and we are planning a trip back soon.

Room Tip: If you don't what a room that a pet has been in be sure to ask for a room that is no pets allowe...

I took my wife here overnight for her birthday. The lounge and lobby are amazing. We drank but did not eat for we had dinner reservations across the street at Ruth's Chris. The rooms are way over priced. We paid almost $400.00 for a low mid $200 room. There was a small chandler above the bed that you could not dim. My wife unintentionally looked behind the desk in our room and saw nothing but filth. A drape for a bathroom door? and there was not a handle on the inside of the water closet door or the shower door so you could not get them completely closed. Poor design. The shower was considerably small.
I have stayed at many a nice hotel world wide. This was the first time I felt ripped off. Stay at a local BnB.....

Thank you for celebrating your wife’s birthday at the Grand Bohemian Hotel. We appreciate the nice comments about our lobby and lounge. The hotel interior design is truly spectacular and unique. I am very sorry that you were disappointed with your guest room experience and our hotel bathrooms were not what you expected. The room rates do fluctuate with Asheville demand and Western North Carolina seasonality so please check back on future Asheville visits. If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. Thank you for sharing your feedback.

Kind regards,

We stayed here 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. Close to great restaurants and shopping! Be sure to eat at The Corner Kitchen.
The busts of Samuel L Jackson, Kenny Rogers, Barry Gibb, and famous horses Mr. Ed and Secretariet were a wonderful added bonus. Great art!

We booked this hotel thru Marriott.com thinking it would be a "Marriott", it's not, it's better! Unique decor gives you the lodge feel, a comfortable lobby with seating around the fireplace. The hotel is centrally located in the Biltmore Village, walking distance to shopping, art galleries and dining. We stayed in the Annex, our room was comfortable, the bathroom was huge with a great sower and large soaking tub. The only negatives...wish there was a chair to sit in to watch TV or read instead of sitting on the bed and the lighting was to low in the bathroom to apply makeup. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating.

we stayed in the manor house across the street from the main hotel. the room was nice but a bit dark. that bathroom was just weird with heavy drapery instead of a bathroom door. sometimes designers just don't "get it" so to speak. at least there were glass doors on the shower and toilet area.(privacy is always nice in a small hotel room) but if you needed to use the bathroom in the middle of the night opening those drapes totally woke up my husband. there is a real need for better bathroom lighting on dimmers and regular bathroom doors. we never had a full nights sleep, all 5 nights due to the TRAIN and noisy neighbors at 4:30 AM. one day we never had maid service but the staff was very accommodating in tidying our room at 5:30 pm. the animal skins and heads I thought were unnecessary and we would have preferred a ceiling fan over the bad versus the antler light fixture since the windows do not open so you must use the noisy AC. there were only 3 drawers so my husband never unpacked the 5 days and a small refrigerator would be a nice addition. the staff was very friendly and the location is great even though the property is between 2 fast food chains! we tried to sit outside one evening on an upstairs patio but there were no chairs! so there really is nowhere to actually sit outside which is a bit odd. there were also not many electrical outlets which is odd in this day and age with new hotels. but the beds were comfy and that's always important. too bad about the train......that freight train some nights took an hour to get thru town

Room Tip: corner rooms have more windows
