Editorial review:

This expansive historic place exudes comfort and has incredible views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The spa is great, the golf course is excellent, and the lobby is outstanding. It's recommended that you have cocktails out on the terrace at dusk. The rooms, which range from charming to large, and the dining, are average. It can get crowded from visitors and conventions, though.

                                  I like the history and preservation that surrounds The Grove Park Inn. However, I chose it becuse it was close to The Biltmore House. I also enjoy the high-end luxury feeling it gives.

                                  I didn't like that you have to pay extra to use the underground pool facility at the spa or that there is a semi-hidden $22 fee for incidentals that we did not use, I.E. local calls, wi fi, shuttle, fitness center. Also, it would be nice if you were made aware of immediate impending activities upon check in.

                                  Frankly not much. See below.

                                  We were nickeled ($5) and ($!10) to death for every activity. Could not sit by the outside pool unless we subscribed for a day spa expense. The last time we spent time there was about 16 years ago. The next time will be never.

                                  Historic hotel with a lot of history. Nice mountain view.

                                  For $400 / night, I just do not see the value. It is not like the rooms or hotel are overly posh or the service is outstanding. It is a nice hotel with average service level but does not justify a $400/night charge. But the hotel is always busy.

                                  The staff went out of their way to please and it really contributed to our wonderful experience.

                                  The restaurants are over priced. The food was wonderful but too expensive.

                                  The 'old' charm...

                                  A bit overpriced...the meals were a bit overpriced as well...

                                  Everything. Great place to stay...food and accomodations are excellent. It is so historic, and has many things for the family to do. You have to see the Gingerbread competition!

                                  Bus loads of tourists that compete with guests for the facility.

                                  There is a lot to do at the grove park inn. You can stay there the entire evening without having to leave.

                                  The room was ridiculously over priced for what it was. It was comparable in size and furniture/ decorations to any Hampton inn or similar mid level hotel. For the price one would also expect a free breakfast, but none was offered. At check in there was a line of at least five guests waiting to check in, yet there was only one employee available to check in guests. For the money I spent to stay one night there,I was a bit disappointed.

                                  The staff was very polite and helpful. Although I did get transferred back and forth 3 times and my call got hung up on when trying to purchase a Drive and Relax package.

                                  We appreciated the continued efforts to keep a national treasure available.The service people were most friendly and helpful.

                                  The 5th floor room and hall were shabby...holes in the rug in the hall, no table or chest upon which to place clothing in the bathroom, wood trim in bath needs repair and refinishing, etc. The lobby was so crowded it was impossible to move about or enjoy the hotel. The food in the eating area of the lobby was awful.

                                  Beautiful historic hotel with old world charm. Stayed in the Roycroft room in original hotel structure and appreciated the authentic Roycroft furnishings. Great food and drinks on heated terrace made for a great wedding anniversary. Service, from the greeter as we pulled up to the hotel to the friendly bellman to the pleasant front desk personnel, couldn't have been better. Despite being very crowded the day after Thanksgiving, everywhere we went in the hotel service was impeccable, polite and personal.

                                  I loved the ambiance, the old-world charm, the views from our room, the beautiful fireplace and relaxed feeling in the great lounge area, the Christmas trees and decorations(especially the reindeer and sleigh-- great photo op) and of course, the delicious breakfast buffet. The shops too were great and just a little boutique-like which is fun (I found a beautiful "ribbon" scarf that I haven't seen in many stores yet, so I feel special)

                                  The room was just a bit too dark (especially in the entry area) and I thought that offering a bottle of Evian at $7 was too much! We've stayed at numerous hotels in our day and most offer water as a courtesy. If someone wants Perrier or Evian they can get room service, but to offer nothing but Evian for purchase seemed rude. Luckily, the tap water at Grove Park is good and it made a decent cup of coffee. This would not stop me from staying at the Inn, but I hope you consider offering "regular" bottled water in the rooms. As it was, you offered the special coffee and tea an amenity so why not the water?

                                  It was beautiful! We styayed in the old section of the hotel which had amazing charm. We were able to ride the old operating elevator that had an attendant and was inside a massive stone fireplace. We enjoyed drinks and appetizers outside at the sunset terrace restaurant. They have big overhead heaters so you can sit out and enjoy the breathtaking views year round. The food was just ok and quite pricey. But the hotel was wonderful! Can't wait to go back!! Thank you Booked.net!

                                  Reservations were messed up from the time we booked them until we left. Several times we were told it was taken care of, only to find out it wasn'T. Locked out of our room and garage.
