5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014 via mobile

I have visited a couple times. Love the spa. Rooms are clean and nice. Not anything special for the price. Amazing food but big prices!!! A glass of wine 14. But will go again. Almost a cruise ship fill. Very casual dress. Comfort everywhere. The spa is amazing !!!!!

Stayed August 2014

I have been to the Grove Park many times over the years, but this was the first time since Omni Hotels took over the hotel and the change was obvious. Corporate suits all over the place. Not sure if they work there full time or are doing some sort of of review but they were everywhere doing their bean counting. We stayed in the "updated" Vanderbilt wing but nothing really worth the "updated" price. The room was very dark and had no real source of decent lighting. Next time I would stay back in the other wing.

Lets face it the Grove Park is a place for the over 60's crowd to take their bride to get their frisky on for a romantic weekend. I get it. I will admit the location is the what brings me back. The Sunset Lounge has arguably one of the best views in the Southern US.

There have been a number of obvious improvement to the property with the injection of some corp cash with Omni. The new Edison Restaurant is very nice and the new terrace with chairs and umbrellas are nice.

Now for the price. $22 for a mixed green salad with chicken? $21 for a 9 oz house Pinot Noir?

I go to Asheville to get away from the city and ride my bike on the Parkway. Will I go back to the Grove Park, probably, but it just doesn't have the same feel that it used to with Omni taking over. I think they should try to attract a younger crowd and maybe covert the Edison to a more casual sports pub where you can get some cheap pub grub.

This is a BEAUTIFUL property. BUT, the food and beverage and accommodations were very disappointing and overpriced.

Our family of 4 had brunch in the Blue Ridge Room. We all agreed that the room, view and service were great but the food was not. Overall, we were not impressed with the selections. The cold foods were excellent, the hot food was okay but nothing special and the desserts were very disappointing - the meringue on some of the tarts had undissolved sugar in it. Our server was the highlight of our brunch experience.

My wife and I spent an evening in the lounge listening to the live musician who was excellent as was our server. We had a few glasses of wine and wanted to order something to eat. Unfortunately, the most appealing item on the lounge menu was the French Fries so that was all we ordered.

Our room was comfortable with a nice view of the golf course and the mountains in the distance but no more comfortable and a LOT more expensive then the room we stayed in at the Comfort Inn on our previous trip to Asheville.

All and all, very disappointed. Not worth the extra money we spent to stay there. Will not make the same mistake again.

Room Tip: Stay at the Comfort Inn at the Biltmore Square Mall. One third the price, the accommodations are jus...

We arrived after check in time-adivsed room not cleaned yet. After 45 min wait the manager offered "better room." It was so small you could barely turn around. Poor quality for price-very poor management.

I absolutely love The Grove Park Inn! The staff is attentive and welcoming. The service is impeccable.The facility is located in the beautiful city of Asheville, NC and surrounded by some of the most magnificent mountain views you will experience on the East coast. Look forward to my next visit with great anticipation!

For a magical peace unlike any other, the Grovepark Inn will never disappoint. The comfort of the hotel, friendliness of the staff and beauty of the surroundings makes for an unforgettable experience! I highly recommend the history tour which tells the interesting history of the Grovepark Inn and its past owners all while touring the hotel.

My husband and I have stayed at this resort and especially love the roaring fires in the Great Hall, the view of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Spa at Grove Park Inn. The Spa is wonderful and all of our experiences have been the ultimate until this past visit where my collagen facial was less than previous facials at the Spa at Grove Park Inn and elsewhere. I had a wonderful facial with Bethan... ask for her!
