I have to tell you I read all the reviews and mainly why I booked the Biltmore..but I am not in love. In fact I left disappointed.
The hotel itself is impressive. The old history that it has within is incredible. The structure beautiful. The pool better than any I have ever seen. The building itself makes you look around and say wow.
Valet parking...not sure why it is $25 a day. But every time we called for the car it was not there and it normally was on the wrong level. Not sure why..but it was messed up every single time.
Concierge...great job! I got sick and needed medical treatment. They gave me information quickly on an urgent care. Had a print out available right away. Not the Biltmores fault but the Urgent Care is a little scary. Not exactly sure what it is all about but they got me well and that is all that matters.
Worse service ever at the restaurant by the pool. Started out great but not sure what happened as no one ever seemed to wait on us...fill our drinks...or check on us. Food was good but service horrible.
There isn't much surrounding the Biltmore or maybe we just didn't know the area. But move a few blocks away from the Biltmore and there are plenty of unsavory characters.
We also wanted information regarding tennis. We were told that the tennis was owned by the township. So we walked down to the building and no one was able to help us. We then walked to the gym and no one had any information on the tennis courts. Never got to play tennis and was disappointed. Poorly run!
I would not recommend nor would I stay here again.
