Asheville, North Carolina Grove Park Inn Resort and Spa
If you’ve ever been to Asheville, then you’ll know that the city simply isn’t known for its resorts. Asheville is eclectic in nature, and so you just won’t find the number of resorts that you may typically find in cities of the same size. The city is known much more for it’s bed and breakfasts, which are scattered around the area, but you’ll find few typical hotel resorts in Asheville. Yet the hotel resort you do find with Asheville’s Grove Park Inn Resort and Spa is second to none.
One of the first things that stand out about the inn is its convenience to downtown Asheville. The hotel resort is close enough to downtown Asheville that you can get there in a couple minutes, but not so close that it loses its scenic charm. Although you may expect most nice hotels and bed and breakfasts in the Asheville area to be a little off the beaten path, the Grove Park Inn Resort offers a quaint retreat that isn’t too far from the activities of Asheville. Located in the middle of the rolling Smokey Mountain hills, the Asheville resort is located on a beautiful piece of land that makes you feel like you’re miles from nearby civilization. If you like the resort seclusion, without being too far from a city’s activities, then you’ll love the convenience of the Grove Park Inn Resort and Spa in Asheville.
Of course, since it is labeled both a resort and spa, the Asheville hotel’s spa is one of its most distinguishing characteristics. The inn’s spa has been ranked alongside the best spas in the world. There’s thousands of square feet of space and a full staff dedicated exclusively to the spa. Relax in one of their many hot tubs, receive a pedicure or manicure, take a hydro bath or get a massage.
The Grove Park Inn and Spa isn’t just any Asheville hotel for spending a night. Make the Grove Park Inn a retreat for a special occasion, as it’s one of the most famous hotels not only in the south, but the whole world. Enjoy well-appointed rooms that offer great views of the surrounding mountains, or for a longer stay consider one of the hotel’s suites. You can expect prices to range anywhere from the mid-100s for a standard room to several hundred for one of their nicer suites.
