About The Omni Grove Park Inn

Arriving at the mountaintop resort that is The Omni Grove Park Inn, located in Asheville, N.C., is certainly impressive. The granite boulder-covered resort, acquired by Omni Hotels & Resorts in 2013, stands majestically before sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It recently underwent a $25-million restoration and renovation, which included the opening of EDISON, a new restaurant.

One of the Historic Hotels of America, Grove Park broke ground in 1912 and flourished in the 1920's, in a time when guests were not allowed to consume alcohol and were discouraged from bringing children. F. Scott Fitzgerald took up residence in the hotel's halls in the summers of 1935 and 1936, and the resort languished in the golden age of the 1950's. Through a number of restorations and renovations, the resort remains an old-fashioned, yet luxurious destination resort, though it's now one that welcomes children wholeheartedly. Today, the children's programs keep kids 3 to 12 outdoors and having fun, while parents enjoy the slope-side golf course, the beyond-believable spa, and drinks from the sunset terrace.

During the resort's long history, 10 presidents and countless celebrities have stayed in the very rooms your family can stay in today. Doors are fastened with small plaques announcing which famous person rested their head inside the room, and in what year. Guests have included magicians Harry Houdini and David Copperfield; actors Anthony Hopkins, Danny Glover and Gene Hackman; writers F. Scott Fitzgerald; dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov; Olympians Dorothy Hamill and Viktor Petrenko; presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton and Franklin D. Roosevelt; and even a beloved mouse by the name of Mickey.

The hotel's mascot, Major Bear, is featured everywhere in The Omni Grove Park Inn, from children's books sold in the resort's stores to stuffed bears kids will want to take home, along with appearances from the fuzzy bear himself.
