Fodor's Review

The area's premier large resort, an imposing granite edifice celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2013, has grand views of downtown Asheville and the Blue Ridge Mountains and offers all kinds of resort amenities including a Donald Ross-designed golf course, tennis, racquetball, and an amazing spa. Henry Ford, F. Scott Fitzgerald (who stayed in room 441), and Michael Jordan, as well as 10 U.S. presidents from Woodrow Wilson to Barack Obama, have stayed here. It's furnished

with oak antiques in the Arts & Crafts style, and the lobby fireplaces are as big as cars. Three main restaurants offer plenty of choices. The spa, in a striking setting between two wings of the hotel, is one of the finest in the country. The golf course sprawls gorgeously down the mountain, and there's a complete sports complex with tennis, racquetball, and indoor and outdoor pools. Rooms in the original section are mostly smaller but have more character than those in the newer additions.
