The hotel lobby and the grounds
It was a grade lower than when I stayed 10 years ago.
We loved everything about our stay at the Grove. The staff was amazing, professional and polite. The food and drinks were top notch. We will definitely be staying here again in the future.
The room was a bit hot at night even after lowering the temperature in the room.
The hotel is beautiful and the views are stunning. Just walking into the lobby is immediately calming.
I was very disappointed (and embarrassed, as staying here with a friend was my suggestion) with the room we were given. It had outdated wallpaper and green carpet, and the furniture was pretty beat-up. The bathroom was spacious, but had a tiny pedestal sink with nowhere for any toiletries. We had to keep all makeup, brushes, toothbrushes, etc on the dresser in the room. The bathroom looked like a hospital bathroom. There were 2 dim lamps in the room, with no mirror (except what looked like a medicine cabinet in the bathroom and a full- length mirror on the bathroom door - not helpful without good lighting). Not comfortable accommodations for two girls getting ready for dinner. Thankfully the beds were very comfortable. We spent over $300 for the room, which truthfully wasn't as nice as the La Quinta I stayed at 2 weeks ago. Based on other reviews, I am sure that there are more updated rooms available. I would insist on being assigned one of those. I will definitely be back to enjoy the beauty of the hotel, but will not be staying there again until they make some much needed updates.
Atmosphere was romantic, and the staff was helpful. Resort was beautiful, with very vintage-y and comforting style. Sports complex was plentiful, with an indoor pool, lots of tennis courts, weight room, cardio room, and pool tables. Great room bar tenders were quick to greet you, very good cocktails, and friendly.
We couldnt get in or out of self parking because our card didnt work the entire stay, it was really, really inconvenient because we went out a lot for lunch and dinner. They did credit us the parking fee. This place is definitely not a last minute romantic trip kind of place. You better plan in advance if you want any type of spa services and dinner here. The good thing is, its so close to downtown, there's quite a good amount of restaurants to pick from. Overall, if you are planning to venture out, stay somewhere else. If you plan to fully use the amenities at the resort and stay there most of the time, then it would be worth the money.
It was beautiful and all of the staff was extremely friendly!
It's small but you are charged a daily $25 fee for horrible coffee and "internet" which is NOT wifi. If I am going to pay for these extra things, I would expect them to be usable. In the world of smart phones and tablets, who carries a cable to plug into the internet? I have had better perks at a hotel half the price. I really expected more from a resort that is a part of the Omni family.
The staff couldn't have been more friendly and accomodating. They helped us with resturant plans and Biltmore tours. We arrived back at our room to find complitmentary cheese and champagne to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. The entire ambience takes you back to another time when grand hotels were the place to stay in America. We didn't avail ourselves of the gym or spa (extra fee) but they looked inviting. The Grove is fairly close to the Biltmore (perhpas 3 miles?) which is close enough to make travelling back and forth and to downtown Asheville quick and easy but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of both areas.
As frugal seniors we wouldn't have chosen the Grove for our 40th wedding anniversary becasue of the cost but our children gave us a two night stay. At $400 per night with an additional $15 a night parking fee and $25 facilities use fee I equated it to the airlines and their charing "extra" fees. My opinon, if I'm paying close to $400 a night and not staying in a major cty, I think parking should be included in the price of the room. The room was one with a moutain view, comfortable and clean but. not the luxury I expected at that price. I may be being picky here but there were just two chairs in the room, the bath had only a shower and one sink. The room, with a king bed, was the style you'd find in any Hilton hotel but with a distant view of the mountains. If you stay here I would recommend a less expensive room and use the saved money to treat yourself to the Spa. We have stayed at the Mohonk Mountain House in NY and for about the same price had a fireplace in the room, trails and climbs on the property and breakfast/dinner included. I also think Monhonk is expensive but I think I'm comparing that inn with the Grove which may be unfair on my part. So my ONLY dislike was the value for the money but for the special occasion and since "the kids" were paying for it, what more can I say?.
Very beautiful property, my wife enjoyed the spa for about 6 hours.
We were in the oldest part of the building, above the lobby, on the 3rd floor. Noise would be my biggest compliant! It was fine in the afternoon when I could hear the piano playing from the lobby -- but at night, after 11:00PM, the restaurants and bars in the hotel need to keep their music lower so that it cannot be heard in the guest rooms. If I ever stay again I will not stay in that part of the hotel. We also had a crying baby next door to us (again after 11:00PM) but that would not be the hotels fault.
Really worth the price, because it is such a beautiful and storied hotel. Every single hotel employee attends to needs with genuine smiles. The simple pleasures reign supreme here, e.g. sitting by the fireplace, sunset cocktails overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains, giant outdoor fire pits, hiking on the grounds. Did I mention the fireplace? The spa is just shy of acre and so gorgeous, I always intend to go, but there is so much else to do...
Nothing to dislike.
Beautiful property ; great facilities; very nice and professional staff. Food was very good.
I loved the luxury and service of the hotel. It was also a great location. The food was fantastic. The hotel staff was sure to make my stay wonderful, which it was. I also loved the musical entertainment in the evenings.
The spa was wonderful!
