First review
Built in 2001, the Inn on Biltmore Estate is a refined midrise hotel with 210 guest rooms, a dozen or so suites, and a guest cottage. It is located on the Biltmore Estate, an 8,000 acre historic property in western North Carolina and home to the world famous Biltmore mansion. Hotel amenities include two restaurants, a bar, outdoor heated pool, spa and fitness center.

The two story lobby is spacious and comfortable. It is well appointed with plush furniture and wood paneling that make the hotel seem older than it is. The bar in the lobby is typically open till midnight. This is a nonsmoking property except in a few designated outdoor areas. Pets are not permitted. Room service is available 24 hours, and there is valet parking.

Standard room rates vary quite a bit by time of year but typically cost $150-350 per night. Package deals are available with such benefits as a free pass to the house and grounds, complimentary breakfast and courtesy shuttle. Whether a package deal will save you money depends on how long you stay and the number of people in your party. Generally, for two people or for two or more nights, a package deal can make sense. Packages and specials are listed on the inn’s website.

Service was strong here with a minor exception of the hotel valet who insisted that the car not be parked in front of the hotel, even for just a few minutes to check in. The room was clean and comfortable. Also, it was quiet, which was nice after a long day of travel. The bed mattress slanted a bit, but not excessively so. The air conditioning and bathroom controls worked properly, and there were plenty of towels. Breakfast was better than average with a cooked to order omelet that hit the mark, as well as tasty potatoes and a sweet cinnamon apple dish. Views of nearby mountains were wonderful, especially from the pool area. Overall, the stay was very pleasant. The hotel’s convenience to the historic mansion is an added bonus for those who wish to the tour the estate.
