This upscale Marriott hotel is as close as you can get to the main Biltmore gate, and steps from all the shops and restaurants in Biltmore Village. The downside is that this is a congested area, with occasional delays due to a nearby train track crossing on Biltmore Avenue. The Tudor style of the hotel is designed to blend with the architecture of Biltmore Village. The interior recalls a hunting lodge, with animal heads on the walls, sculptured stags, and an open-sided
fireplace. Spacious rooms have sumptuous velvet fabrics, antique mirrors, and plasma TVs.
