“Great Hotel, But Not For Everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2006

Hotel is absolutely beautiful. Based on the reviews I've read, I suppose some rooms are better than others, because our Deluxe King room was excellent and looked like it was recently renovated. The only complaints about the room was the terrible view that they gave us (refused to change us to another room). The other problem was the air conditioning control, but not that big of a deal.

There are only two sit down restaurants at the hotel and they are both overpriced for the quality of the food. The pool is great, but not really geared towards small children, as a matter of fact, this is not the type of hotel that focuses on families. Use it for business, social functions or a romantic get away..

Do not expect Ritz quality or service at the Biltmore, but consider that at the Ritz you can't replicate the ambiance or history you find at the Biltmore. If the Ritz or the Four Seasons could take over the management of the Biltmore it would be perfect.

Combined a business trip to Miami with a couple days of relaxation. Somewhat secluded (felt like an island resort) yet everything was close at hand. Every passing comment I made was attended to and the employees appeared to be enjoying their work! I stay at many nice hotels...this one, the people made me feel at home.
