I admit I questioned this tournament hotel until I arrived. Everything went far better than expected. Three of us shared suite 298 - a large spacious room with king bed and sofa bed. It was comfortable, quiet and just great for three nights. The shower was good and there was plenty of hot water.

The breakfast buffet worked best for our crowd as the service was on the slow side.

The bar is a great asset for this resort. We gathered in the comfortable atmosphere, enjoying evening beverages, music, large screen TV's and excellent dinner right at the bar.

The tennis facility needs some time to mature but it was super for our tournament.

Our three nights will be a fond memory. Service and attitude was top notch.

The only thing that I would recommend is to update the lobby entrance, returning the beams to earthy wood tones to match the mountain surroundings.

Room Tip: Room 298 at the end of the hall was very good.

Stayed here for two nights attending a convention. Other than the long lines upon arrival for check in, this place was great. They had four conventions going on at one time. You would of never known it, this place is large and comfortable. Very impressed with the room and the bedding, I even got an inquiry from housekeeping to ask if my room had been cleaned well. The view and balcony were a plus. They have a nice spa and racquet center attached that others raved about and I didn't get to use. The food was pretty darn good too, for fixing food for 100's they managed to make it tasty, glad we're going back in two years!

My husband and I ended up booking a room here the day before we arrived since we had to cancel our original plans due to flooding in that area. We booked through priceline and I had thought we got a great deal until we arrived. It was our 2nd anniversary and we were stuck in a room with two double beds...which was problem one. You can tell they tried to update this hotel room but the updates themselves with regards to the quality were one of the worst I have ever seen. The housekeeping does a very good job cleaning the rooms but to have crown molding hanging off the wall, cut and hung poorly and the bathroom....the shower tile grout needs to be fixed, the bathroom wallpaper needs to be removed or repaired in several areas, the sinks "mock" cabinet is a joke. Sand it down and repaint it. The bottom line is this hotel should not be branded as a crown plaza. I think a hotels manager should be responsible and ensure that the company they hire to do upgrades meet the standards of what a crown plaza hotel should be. There are so many details in the bathroom that were unacceptable in my eyes and the elevator we had to take looked like a run down service elevator. The staff seemed friendly other than Lori who seemed to have a bit of an attitude with another customer. We will not stay here again nor do we recommend this hotel to anyone.

We spent one night here after touring the Biltmore. The room was clean and spacious. The beds were comfortable. It was little weird that you parked outsie your room but had to walk down to one end of the building to get into the hallway. You could then get to your car through the porch (if you were on the first floor)> Very large (18") drop from the balcony to the ground.

I booked two rooms on hotwire, and then read reviews, so I was a little nervous. There were two couples in our party and we were all very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The rooms were nice and clean. The couple we stayed with had been to Asheville several times and they said this hotel was the nicest they had stayed at. The shuttle service is very convenient and the concierge, Gus, was quite possibly the sweetest man I had ever met. We ate breakfast there and it was delicious. I can't recommend this place enough. When we return with our kids, we will absolutely stay here again. The only complaint I would have is how early the stop serving food. We were hungry at 10:30 after touring the sites all day and the kitchen was closed. But, other than that, we could not be happier with our stay.

We were here for one night and it was very convenient to Biltmore and to downtown. The lobby and bar are very spacious and inviting. We sat outside on the long porch with a beer. View isn't anything spectacular, but the grounds around the building are nice for a walk. We were there off season so the recreation facilities were closed. The room was very spacious and had a small balcony with chairs, which was nice.
