The Omni Grove Park Inn (Asheville, NC)
In the midst of North Carolina's Blue Ridge Mountains, The Omni Grove Park Inn has been offering guests a one-stop kind of hotel experience for more than 100 years. Fresh off a $25 million renovation, the hotel and its 513 guest rooms continue to meld classic and modern conveniences, such as custom furnishings by Stickley and Roycroft throughout the property and guest rooms. The hotel makes use of its grand size by offering a packed schedule of activities, including a series of fitness classes throughout the day and, for the holiday season, holiday sing-a-longs and a gingerbread house competition. Elsewhere throughout the property guests are encouraged to stay active with shopping promenades, tennis and racquetball courts, a hiking trail, and various drinking and dining options, including Elaine's Dueling Piano Bar.
