I have to state up front that I don’t get this hotel. I just cannot recommend it. This is a modern, almost characterless place. It is marketed as being on the Biltmore Estate and this is where the story starts to change. The Biltmore Estate is massive and in the beginning it had hundreds of square miles of gardens and forest. Today it is still a huge 8,000 acre expanse and this hotel is in the grounds. In fact the best feature of the hotel is the view over the mountains. Just do not expect to see or get close to the world famous Biltmore House – unless you buy a ticket. Yes – you do not get to drive around the full estate just because you paid a minimum of $269 of a room. A single room. 2 people? You may want to consult your bank manager before you make reservations. You are looking at a little over $400 for most rooms! Seriously – this is just a rip-off. The hotel is very nice, but it’s far from the Palace they are asking you to pay for.

The rooms are ok. Nothing luxurious, just nice. They do have good beds, excellent toiletries and it is absolutely quiet. Fair enough, but at this price you could stay at several luxury hotels in Asheville – twice. Possible more. Like I said, I don’t get this place. My brother had his (3rd) wedding here and stays here a lot on business. I would rather stay at the historic and charming Grove Park Inn any day.

On the plus side they have a bar (amazingly without any charm at all), an outdoor pool (some months), some excellent gift shops and a modern gym. You can also walk outside from the bar and see the mountain I grew up on. When I was a child I went to school with the children of one of the estate’s caretakers.

My recommendation? Stay elsewhere and drive the Blue Ridge Parkway if you want to really see the mountains and scenery. You can stop at dozens of places and go hiking or take a picnic. It just is not worth it to stay here for the money they charge. And they just keep charging. Want a ‘guaranteed’ view – that’s an extra $50 minimum! Want to see the Biltmore House and Gardens – even from the outside – yes tickets will easily set you back more than an additional $100! Now you understand. Save your money and see the Biltmore House. Give the Biltmore Hotel a miss and save a lot of money.

Unique Quality:

• 201 rooms and 9 suites set in beautiful woodlands
• NO access to, or even sight of, the Biltmore House unless you buy tickets
• Guaranteed views are an additional fee - starting at $50!
• Outdoor pool and hot tub (open 6am-10pm and closed completely in Winter)
• Small (oddly) outdoor seating area
• Library, fitness center, bar, restaurant
• A shocking lack of facilities given the prices

• Nice décor supposedly based upon English and French manor houses
• Rooms are cleaned twice a day
• Great beds
• Complimentary bottled water, Coffee/Tea and daily newspaper
• Wi-Fi
• Bathrobe, slippers, great toiletries, mirrors and hairdryer
• Complimentary overnight shoeshine
• 24-hour concierge and meal service
• Massive television
• Table (writing desk)

Went forth of July weekend. My autistic son saw his first fire works. He didn't like it outside, but loved seeing them from our suite. I ate my first Lobster and my first duck. Loved room service. Most staff was helpful. Beautiful views. Many weddings/celebrations take place there. Booked Vanderbilt package. Loved my private tour of Biltmore Estate. No waiting in line for me Thank You! My guide was very attentive and offered to taylor my tour to my personal interests. Bring plenty of money! You will need it!

Unique Quality: Pool nothing special. Beautiful grounds and scenery. Many activities. Land Rover driving. I took rafting trip (float) on Broad River. It was lovely. I was so happy on my rafting trip. Staff sould be more CAREFUL. Guide almost smacked me upside my big head with his oar when he disembared from raft. This was a major spoiler for me. I felt like my trip had been Ruined. Room very clean and enjoyed tea service as well as resturants on property.

Amazing views and luxury accommodations

by written on March 28, 2003

C'mon, you don't think I actually stayed here do you? Nope. But I did go take a look at the place. The staff was very friendly even though they knew we were just checking it out. There are 204 rooms some with terraces and balconies and nine luxurious suites. The Dining Room has an enormous stone fireplace and draws its menu from the resources of the estate, including the gardens and the vineyards.

Unique Quality: The views from the back of the inn are magnificent. You can eat on the stone porch and gaze out at a mountain sunset or just take dinner in your room. Either way, this is a top-notch place to spend a night or two.

Room rates vary with the seasons and range from around $189-$369.

Getting away from it all while enjoying it all

The Inn on the Biltmore Estate is a luxury hotel within sight of the Biltmore Estate. It is too rich for my blood and it would take a special occasion for Mark to shell out the kind of change needed to stay here.

Unique Quality: There is a uniformed door man. Once you get into the lobby, you hear a pianist tinkling softly in the background (better, I reckon, than one tinkling loudly in the foreground). Just off the Lobby Bar is a balcony where people are still allowed to indulge in a fine cigar. There is a nightly turn-down service with chocolates, custom robes and slippers, concierge service, 24-hour room service, English bath amenities and in-room coffee makers, telly with in-room movies as well as Web TV.

Directions: From Interstate 26: Take I-40 East, then take exit 50.
