In 1944 the US Navy selected The Omni Grove Park Inn as a place for rest, relaxation and respite for its service men and women following the war. Today we honor all those who have served our great country, both past and present.

Thank you from all of us!

I've stayed here twice now and the Grove Park is great landmark in Asheville. I'd recommend at least visiting the hotel even if you're not staying there. The rooms can be pricey (on the upwards of $300 or more) and are in need of renovation. They are nice despite showing some age and offer beautiful views of the mountains. I believe they are going through a renovation at this time though. I highly recommend sitting on the patio, watching the sunset, and taking in the beauty of the mountains. While I have not experienced the spa, friends of mine have had good things to say about it. You can purchase day passes to access the spa (not the services, but the waterfalls, pools) for $65 Monday-Thursday for in-house guests and $90 for Friday-Sunday. It's $90 regardless of the day of the week for visitors (not staying in-house).

We just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary at the Grove Park Inn. We are not rich by any means but this is such a beautiful hotel and we have always wanted to spend the night here. We got a regular room, but from the moment we checked in and let them know it was our 25th anniv, they upgraded us to a nice mountain view, within minutes of us being in the room they brought us a bottle of wine and a tray of fruit and cheese. They made us feel like royalty and made our special day the best anniversary ever. The breakfast buffet is a must! Do not eat at the Edison the food was over salted and just a terrible menu. All and all it was a wonderful night and everyone was very accommodating.

UPDATED REVIEW: After hearing that we were not thrilled with our stay, the Omni has gone above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and special. The hotel's loyalty ambassador called us immediately and apologized profusely, and he has been showering us with attention since then. We have received a complimentary upgrade to our room (and the new space is AMAZING), flowers, bottles of champagne, cheese plates, and service that is really spectacular. My impression is that this is the experience they were hoping to give us when we first got here; the loyalty ambassador mentioned that some balls had been dropped by his staff and that he had made some arrangements for us that didn't get executed. It has lived up to and exceeded our expectations, and when we are back in the area we hope to return. Thank you, Omni, for giving us a great experience! We're so pleased that we chose you for our honeymoon! ________________________________________________________________________________ ORIGINAL REVIEW: We're currently honeymooning here, and we've been underwhelmed. Nothing is terrible, but neither my husband nor I feel like the hotel really cares about our special event. Perhaps it's suffering by comparison; we stayed at a Kimpton (the Topaz Inn) and the Hay Adams right before our wedding, and both hotels went above and beyond to make us feel special (complimentary bottles of champagne, room upgrades, chocolate-covered strawberries, etc.) that the Omni feels somewhat disappointing by comparison. We've stayed at a lot of Omni hotels before, and I've never seen such an unremarkable room. It could pass for any Holiday Inn (probably not of the quality of Holiday Inn Express). That's completely fine, but it's not what we were looking for our honeymoon. The staff is perfectly professional and pleasant, and the hotel is as advertised, but I find myself wishing that my husband and I had opted to find another hotel that would make us feel a little more special.

What a time my fiance and I had on our trip to Asheville! We stayed two nights at the Grove Park Inn in a room in the original part of the hotel on the 3rd floor, facing the spa and golf course, but really, facing those gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains! We went in early June, and the climate in Asheville was so lovely that we slept with our windows open, while at the same time we controlled the AC in our room, which was very responsive. The room felt very clean and well-kept, the bathroom was lovely with a deep tub if you want a nice hot bath. We were there for sightseeing and relaxing vacationing, and didn't take advantage of the golfing. The spa was the best part of the whole experience, felt like we were in a world-class place. If you come to Grove Park, you MUST go to the spa. However, even if you just want to swim in the pools (like we did), having a room at Grove Park does not grant you free access. You get a slightly discounted rate, but it's still extra. We took advantage of the Twilight rate (from 5pm to 9pm) at $50 each, and it was absolutely lovely. If you'd like to book any of the massages/treatments, book them in advance of your trip. When we arrived, they had no availabilities. But ohhhh, the place is worth it! The restaurants are also amazing. We dined the first night at the Vue, I ordered the lobster ravioli and she ordered the burger. My God, that burger was the best I had ever eaten!!! The next evening we ate at the sports bar, and again, the view of the hills were amazing and the food was delicious! Expect to spend $30 - $40 per person. The morning we checked out, we ate at the breakfast buffet, which was very comprehensive and had omelets cooked to order. Nothing to really scream home about there, a bit better than Ihop or Denny's. The concierge is helpful in scheduling day activities for you. We ordered our tickets to the Biltmore Estate, without any discounts, but at least saving us from visiting the ticket booth. The Bad: Our trip was glorious, and Grove Park is a beautiful and historic destination, but I did have a few complaints and things I would have done differently. First, what you order when you book your reservation is NOT what you pay for when you check out. Remember, access to the spa is not included. There's the valet parking or self-parking, both are pricey (valet for us was $22 per night). And of course there's the infamous "Resort Fee," that extra $25 per night that is complete BS, allegedly granting you access to the Wifi, the sports complex, and the outdoor pool that is a 5 minute shuttle bus ride down to the golf course country club. So expect your check-out bill to be substantially larger than you expected. If we had to do it all over again, we probably would lodge elsewhere and pay the extra amount to visit the spa. We stayed at the Pinebrook Manor B&B in Hendersonville 20 min south of Asheville, and not only was that much cheaper, but their beds were way nicer and comfortable than the Grove Park Inn. Bottom line: go to Grove Park for the spa, enjoy the delicious food and gorgeous views, but stay overnight just once. Don't stay there your whole vacation.

We have been going to this hotel for years. Regretfully after being taken over by the Omni group the prices were doubled and the quality vanished. Food at the restaurants is close to uneatable, quality of products was vastly reduced, the Spa is overcrowded when we arrived every chair was taken inside and out we had literately nowhere to seat and signs of trying to maximize profits at the expense of the guests’ experience abound – like half emptying the hot tabs to save money on heating the water. The only remaining reason to go to the Grove Park Inn is if your main purpose in a vacation is to make sure the Omni shareholders are better off when you leave.

Gone is the Old World elegance and 1st class presentation that was The Grove Park Inn. My friends and I made our annual trek to The Grove Park for Christmas lunch and shopping. We will not be going again. The food at the Edison was poorly prepared, presented and greasy. The price points were unreasonable for what was presented to our table. A glass of wine was $25 dollars and not even chilled properly! Really. We could have had a better meal at The Waffle House. This would have never been the case before Omni Resorts bought this old gem. As my party and I were leaving I paid $15 for the valet to bring the car around.( that's fine) however they obviously charge a dollar a minute because it took 15 minutes before my car was retrieved. Sadly, we won't be going back to The Grove Park Inn and I certainly will not recommend it when someone asks "What is there to do in Asheville". I will give them plenty of other choices.
