Editor’s Review of The Omni Grove Park Inn

Lissa Poirot Editor’s Rating 4/5 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
... more 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. less

Rooms can be selected in the Historic Main Inn, which was opened in 1913, the Vanderbilt Wing, the Sammons wing, the Club floor, the cottage, and even a series of theme rooms and suites. Rooms feature free Wi-Fi, microwave, refrigerator, coffeemaker and pay-per-view and video games. The Main Inn rooms are furnished with craftsman-era furnishings, while the newer wings feature more spacious rooms.

Rooms vary by view, with panorama corner rooms in the Main Inn and Sammons Wing boasting the best mountain views and more space. Mountain view rooms are found in the Contemporary wings and Main Inn, facing the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountain ranges and the resort's golf course. Property view rooms overlook the spa or property. Value ... more rooms are small rooms with one bed in the Main Inn -- charming, yes, but not meant for families. Selecting a Club Floor room will provide you extra amenities, as well as complimentary spa access, but alas, they are only for guests 18+.

Theme Rooms and Suites
These one-of-a-kind suites include a 50s-themed room decorated in the era's colors and style, a Gatsby-themed room taking you back into the Jazz Age, the Donald Ross room revolving around golf, a Craftsman room with an ornate Victorian era theme, the Gallery room with its Western North Carolina stylings, and The Spa room meant to elicit serenity. less
