We visited Asheville for one night over Labor Day Weekend. We flew into Charlotte and drove to Asheville the next day. The hotel was the best part of our trip. The location was excellent and the hotel seemed brand new. When we tried to check in at 10:00 am we were told the room was not ready and to come back in 2 hours. Not a big deal. However, when we returned the same person who told us to come back was oblivious that he ever spoke to us. We were fortunate that another person working the reception desks arrived and we were promptly checked in. The person who checked us in was from Austria and he was fabulous. The other guy was from FL and was terrible.
The hotel is in a great location. We had visited the Biltmore on a previous trip so did not go there this time. However it would be quite easy to do that from the hotel. The Bellagio located around the corner was the nicest of all the stores in Biltmore Village. It was a real treat. Unfortunately Asheville was not much changed from when we were there 6 years ago. It is cleaner but not upscale. It is still very hippy which is fine if that is what you like.
As I said earlier the best part of our stay was the Grand Bohemian. The room was beautiful. The beds were very comfortable and dressed in luxurious duvets and velvet throws. The bathroom was also very snazzy. I liked the separate room for the toilet with the frosted doors and brass twig handles. The Roomlinx TV was wonderful. For no additional charge we could use the Internet on the TV to check email or make hotel reservations which is what we did when we decided to only spend one night in Asheville and go to Lake Norman for the other night.
We ate in the bar that evening. The food was pretty good. Although the shrimp appetizer was amazingly small. The breakfast the next day was my favorite breakfast in a long time. They make a fabulous European Breakfast! Poached egg, brie, ham, raspberry jam. Yum!! The restaurant is nicely done with an open kitchen.
Although Asheville was not for us we enjoyed our stay at the Grand Bohemian very much. It certainly made our stay.
