I've stayed here overnight a couple of times before, but haven't had much time to really experience the hotel. Just came back from a two-night stay, and I have to say I think this is one of the top hotels in the US, comparable to and perhaps exceeding the best Four Seasons. Staff are friendly while unobtrusive, the food is great, rooms are huge and well-equipped, and the spa and fitness center are top-notch. I think the hotel and grounds are beautiful, and the whole experience just hangs together. While the Umstead has mostly a local/regional reputation because of its connection to SAS, its really one of the best places I've stayed anywhere. Highly recommended.
