Overview

Nestled within the Blue Ridge Mountains, this historic Arts & Crafts hotel offers multiple dining options, a 43,000-square-foot subterranean spa, sports complex with racquetball, yoga, and wellness programs, indoor and outdoor pools, and tennis courts. Plus, two retail promenades, and an 18-hole Donald Ross-designed championship golf course.
The Grove Park Inn Resort and Spa, an Omni Resort, is one of the South's best-loved resorts. Built in 1913 with granite stones mined from Sunset Mountain, the resort overlooks the city of Asheville, NC, and provides majestic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. With its distinctive undulating red clay tile roof and original Roycroft furnishings and fixtures, The Grove Park Inn captures the essence of the Arts and Crafts movement. Throughout its massive lobby, words of inspiration from noted authors and anonymous sources are etched in stone.

The pure mountain air, impeccable service and unparalleled cuisine have attracted visitors by the score, from William Jennings Bryan, who delivered the keynote address at the inn's opening in 1913, to Thomas Edison, Will Rogers, Henry Ford, F. Scott Fitzgerald and eight U.S. Presidents. At the end of the 20th century, The Grove Park Inn underwent a major renovation, adding a 40,000-square foot spa and expanding its outstanding sports complex.

The property offers a vast array of resort services and amenities. A new 40,000 square foot Spa features a full range of custom and signature services. A newly restored Donald Ross golf course, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pools and a sports complex help active guests stay in shape. Special childrens' programs, babysitting services and daycare are available. The amenities department can accommodate special requests for in-room treats, from custom chocolates and Champagne to classic gift baskets and birthday cake surprises.
