Fodor's Expert Review Omni Grove Park Inn

290 Macon Ave., Asheville, North Carolina, 28804, USA

This massive resort, which opened in 1913, has hosted 10 U.S. presidents from Woodrow Wilson to Barack Obama, and it's easy to see why: grand views of downtown Asheville and the Blue Ridge Mountains, and resort amenities that include a golf course, top-rated spa, and variety of dining options. Its restaurants include Edison (Southern comfort food) and Vue 1913 (contemporary American and French). It's furnished with oak antiques in the Arts and Crafts style, and the lobby fireplaces are as big as cars.
