The Grove Park Inn Resort and Spa is a luxurious place. It opened in 1913 and boasts a photo display of Presidents (8), sports figures and other assorted celebrities who have enjoyed the facility in the ensuing years. The resort has 510 rooms, a subterranean spa facility, athletic center, 18 hole golf course, 3 restaurants (one, Horizons, is similar in style, menu and price to Victoria and Albert's) and loads of charm. The resort is located on Sunset Mountain in Asheville, NC and faces west- offering spectacular views at sunset. All of the restaurants offer a panoramic look at the mountains, with Asheville in the foreground. After a disappointing check-in (Yes, I realize that check-in is AFTER 4PM), which was finally resolved by a very embarrassed resort manager with an upgraded room (and a chilled bottle of champagne) at 5:30PM. We are in a corner room with a view of the spa area, golf course and the mountains. The resort staff is very accustomed to providing their guests with a high level of service...and they attract guests who expect/demand the same. Phone charges are $1 for local calls ( .15/minute after the 1st 30 minutes), 1-800 calls are free for the 1st 30 minutes (.15/minute after). There is a nice room service menu and complimentary turn-down service is available. The resort is beautiful and, IMHO, a deserved member of the DVC Concierge Collection.
