The Residences at Biltmore
Travel Blogs from Asheville
Okay, so we decided that we needed to get the heck out of maryland for a few days. We had planned a trip earlier but do to unforseen issues we had to postpone those plans. So when the issues of everyday life finally got the best of us we decided to go to Ashville, North Carolina. We could have gone to Philly as always but then we really would just …
... Atlanta almost two and a half times the distance). We did some back roads today and I have you say they were straight, straight, straight! Boring. The drive back from Roanoke will be on the freeway just as, if not more boring! Still we stopped a couple of times and took pictures of a couple of lakes. Driving through the Bible Belt proved to be interesting too there's a church of one definition ...
... rosebay rhododendron blooming along the creek and the trail. At one point, the rhododendron formed a tunnel of green leaves and white flowers to hike through. In about a mile, the trail followed another logging road and crossed Davidson River on a big bridge that led back to the parking lot. I shuttled the other drivers back to their cars at Gloucester Gap and then we packed the cars up and began the long drive ...
... Stopped at a river for a swim. Went to put my trunks on could only find my Budgie Smugglers, lost my trunks in Miami. A load of Hillbillies were also swimming. Coming out of the river, George grabbed the only towel we had first. After he was done with it he refused to share it. With me and my smugglers trying to grab it off him in front of some very conservative hillbillies, didn't look like two brothers squabbling. One hillbilly started shouting across the river at us ...
Added another fast food joint to our ever expanding list. Waffle House for breakfast where they frantically make your food in front of you as you sit round the open plan kitchen and watch the chaos. Left the place topped up on sugar and feeling stressed from just watching them all try get their orders in first so they increase their chance of getting a tip. Still, only costing us $5 for a big breakfast can't complain. Drove ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Residences at Biltmore Asheville
My partner and I really enjoyed staying at The Residences at Biltmore during our recent Asheville retreat in late June, 2007. While in Asheville, we wanted to stay in a place that would make us feel like we were staying at home, instead of in the confines of a hotel. Being able to cook a good home cooked meal with the right tools was just as important for us as going out to a fine restaurant. Having the ability to soak in a jacuzzi tub, was also important for me---as was having the ability to wash clothes if I needed to. We wanted to stay at a place that was nice, clean, modern and quiet----one that had a powerful air conditioning system; a place that you could wake up feeling well rested and refreshed. We found what we were looking for and more at The Residences at Biltmore and enjoyed our stay there very, very much. What we had it our apartment? A very powerful air conditioning system. Two large flat screen TVs (one in the living room and the other in the bedroom)---each with its own DVD player. A gas fireplace in the living room. A large balcony with a view of the hotel's and adjoining properties in the living room and bedroom. A full scale kitchen with granite counter tops, dishwasher, microwave, cook range, oven, side by side refrigerator/freezer with icemaker and water closet, state of the art pots, pans, dishes, flatware, and other applicanes. A stackable washer and driver---with great steam iron and ironing board. A large living room with very comfortable and nice furniture, hardwood floors and a nice sectional rug. A nice dining area. A large bathroom, with glassed-in shower and jacuzzi tub. A very nice, fully carpeted bedroom with a high king bed, designer linens and conforters, soft pillows, etc.,and lounging robes and slippers. We received housekeeping attention twice a day with evening turndown service with chocolates each night. The daily paper was waiting on the outside doorknob of our apartment each morning.
My husband and I stayed for a 4th of July break which coincided with my husbands birthday. The Concierge at the property called me before we left for the trip and knowing that it was a special occassion made recommendations and booked our restaurant reservations, had a bottle of my husbands favorite wine waiting for us in the room and suggested a beautiful waterfall hike for us to go on. We were truely spoiled!!
Mein Mann und ich waren zum Feiertag des 4. Juli hier, und gleichzeitig hatte mein Mann Geburtstag. Der Rezeptionist des Hotels rief mich vor unserer Anreise an und gab mir Empfehlungen für diesen besonderen Anlass, er nahm sogar Restaurantreservierungen für uns vor und stellte eine Flasche des Lieblingsrotweins meines Mannes in unser Zimmer und schlug uns eine Wanderung zu einem wunderschönen Wasserfall vor. Wir wurden wirklich verwöhnt!!
Mi esposo y yo nos alojamos durante las vacaciones del cuatro de julio y coincidieron con el cumpleaños de mi esposo. El conserje del lugar me llamó antes de que partiéramos al viaje, y sabiendo que era una ocasión especial, me hizo recomendaciones e hizo nuestras reservas en el restaurante, había una botella del vino favorito de mi esposo esperándonos en la habitación, y nos sugirió una hermosa caminata por la cascada. ¡Realmente nos mimaron!
My husband and I stayed here for a quick getaway. After spending the day at the Biltmore we were excited to see our accomodations. As you approach the property, it is very apparent that they are very much still under considerable construction - there is large equipment , building supplies and dirt everywhere, so the approach is not attractive. The outside of the hotel looks much more like an apartment complex. As a matter of fact, this place does not look or function anything like a hotel. There is no lobby, only a cramped office to pick up your key. There are absolutely no onsite ammenities - no resturant, no room service, no pool, spa or even grounds (to speak of). The suite itself was very nice, brand new and extremely well equiped. Granite countertops, stainless appliences, luxury linens, spa tub, etc. The flat screen TVs were very nice! There was a small balcony, but no chairs to sit on. This brings me to the biggest dissapointment - the view was ugly - the rusty puddles on the flat roof of the building under construction next door was all you could see. No mountain view, as promised on the website. Even with all the other shortcomings, we would have been satistifed with the stay (we knew ahead of time about the construction) if there had been a decent view. Even when the construction is finished this ugly view of the flat rooftops is not changing! After taxes, our one night stay cost $330.00! This seems high considering the lack of a view or any amenities for guests to enjoy. For a slightly higher price we could have stayed at the Inn on Biltmore and for much less we could have stayed in an Inn with breakfast included and a view and/or gardens to enjoy. The management should consider lowering the prices until the property is completed. I do not feel that we got a good value at all.
Ich habe während des Memorial Day Wochenendes in den Residences at Biltmore Hotel übernachtet. Das Personal war sehr freundlich und entgegenkommend. Unsere Suite war sehr gut ausgestattet, sauber und bot eine luxuriöse Atmosphäre. Das Bett war sehr komfortabel, hatte weiche Bettwäsche und kuschelige Kopfkissen. Der Wäscheservice war ebenfalls sehr gut. Das Badezimmer war ebenfalls ausgezeichnet, inklusive Jacuzzi und einer Dusche mit Glaskabine.
Me alojé en The Residences en el hotel Biltmore durante el fin de semana del día de los caídos. El personal era simpático y complaciente. La suite en donde nos alojamos estaba bien diseñada, limpia y parecía como si fuese de lujo. La cama era muy cómoda con ropa de cama limpia, pero suave, y esponjosas almohadas. También nos agradó el servicio de habitaciones. El baño también estaba increíble, con una bañera de hidromasaje y una ducha separada con cristal.
I stayed at The Residences at Biltmore Hotel over Memorial Day weekend. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The suite we stayed in was very well appointed, clean and had a luxurious feel. The bed was very comfortable with crisp yet soft linens and fluffy pillows. The turn down service was lovely as well. The bathroom was also stellar with a whirlpool and large glass enclosed shower.
We stayed here for 3 nights in April. I had a hard time leaving the beautiful accomodations to take advantage of the sites from this great location. It is 1/2 mile from Biltmore Village where you will find quaint shopping and restaurants and one mile from downtown with tons of neat little restaurants where you can dine in or out. Biltmore estate extremely close as well, not sure how far 1.5 miles or so?
