“This place is impressive!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We planned a Christmas destination, so no one would have to cook/clean - and the Grove Park Inn was a beautiful choice. The crowds were somewhat daunting, as many come to see the annual gingerbread competition. It may be better to visit during a different time of year, and maybe without my aging parents. They had a difficult time getting around (floors are uneven and rocks stick out on walls) as much is "carved" from stone. We went to several of the restaurants and even had room service one night. The food was good, but drinks were very expensive. More than $20 for two glasses of wine. I saw another entry about a bug - we had one on our wall, but it was a ladybug and these are known to come indoors in winter in NC - also, they are lucky! Other than cost, the only thing we didn't like was a family that was staying on the same floor. Every morning (earlier than we wanted to rise), a child or two with lead feet was running up and down the hall, yelling. Perhaps they could have a family wing and an adult only wing?

Room Tip: The mountain view rooms are nice.

Grove Park Inn knows what professional hospitality looks like. Every detail of my stay was classy, efficient and sincere. It does not get better than this. I was there a few days before Christmas and the hotel was at capacity, yet every event and activity was calm and well prepared for...there were crowds in the main hall and front porch and restaurants but all went smoothly with not a hint of frustration or exhaustion of the faces of the staff!
Be sure to visit Grovewood Studio next to the inn....the garden has nice artwork great for photos.
The spa was sublime.....I spent time just sitting in the softly lit tunnel that leads to the spa listening to Native American flute music. My favorite place was the women's quiet room. I fell asleep in a welcoming leather chair next to a dancing fire in the fireplace . The water features are all encased in a grotto like stone cave room......again, perfect attention to service and convenience for spa visitors. The spa staff was so helpful and attentive but not intrusive.
My final thought is - Go, just go at least once in your life! The Grove Park Inn is an American treasure, truly.

This was a fantastic Christmas getaway. The hotel/staff were excellent. The spa was incredible. I would advise, if going, to make spa reservations well in advance, as it books up very quickly, and if taking the Christmas package, to make dinner reservations for both Christmas eve and Christmas day in advance.

The GPI immerses you with a feeling that time has not diminished the luxury's of the past. Indeed, enjoy the feeling you are participating not just staying. I was a guest during the busiest time of the year (xmas week) and rank my experience "great". I have traveled extensively and never enjoyed myself more in such a short time.

I've stayed often at the GPI, for business and for pleasure. We stayed Christmas Eve and Day this year with our adult son from CA. He and our dog stayed in Vanderbilt 3rd floor. There is a pet exercise area and the rooms are designated for pets. You pay a cleaning fee for this. Pets are allowed on Vanderbilt 2nd and 3rd floors. 3rd will have a little view, 2nd has immediate access to the pet exercise area.
My husband and I stayed on the club floor: OMG what a treat. I don't consider us "club floor" people but this was amazing. Our room was spacious and had a view of the center of the complete overlooking the spa (we gave up a mtn view room for this). Breakfast is served in the club commons room. Drinks and hot snacks are served from 5-7:30 and are hearty enough to serve as a meal. The club floor includes a day pass to the spa. OMG again! If you haven't been to the spa, it's a must. Even without scheduled treatments, the pools, dry sauna, steam room, inhalation room and outdoor spa are simply amazing. We had Christmas Day lunch in the Blue Ridge Room (a family tradition) and it was even better this year. I loved the serving of some dishes in Le Cruset cast iron.
Our only sad moment was the loss of our camera in the Great Hall. My husband left it there one night and it could not be located. Not the hotel's fault, but our bad luck. I'm still hoping that security cameras may have seen where it might have been placed.
Yes, we will return and thoroughly encourage that you visit and stay here at least once in you're life. Put it on your bucket list!

Room Tip: Ask for mtn view or see if you find that that the club floor's amentitites offset the increase i...

Based upon business conferences that I attended at the resort, I have always wanted to return to this property for pleasure with my wife. We did for Christmas. It is very POPULAR with locals and afar. It is very pricey for NC. Some might say it is worth it. I might have an easier time agreeing if I did not have to wait 20 to 30 minutes for everything (ie., car valet, order from the bar, etc.). Many locals merely strolled into the lobby clog the huge lobby to enjoy the large fireplaces and Christmas festivities for free. Coupled with the property being booked, made for a packed house. The staff was overwhelmed. I think any warm body the hotel could find was hired for the holidays and it showed.
