The Grand Bohemian doesn’t use the term “grand” lightly. A towering stone fireplace and dark wood pillars preside over gleaming wood-paneled walls, gilt-framed oil paintings and buttery leather armchairs in the Tudor-inspired lobby. Contemporary cocktails curtail that post-dinner thirst, while the meal itself lines up creative hearty fare like elk carpaccio or bison ribeye with blueberry demiglace. Rooms have a lighter, more modern touch with tufted velvet headboards, desks inspired by vintage trunks and antlers curled around metal lamps. Expect to be pampered with Matelasse linens, LCD TVs, Bose alarm clocks, DVDs players and bathrooms with rainfall showers and, in most, oversized soaking tubs.
In the Area
Asheville has America’s most breweries per capita, garnering it the nickname Beer City. Grab the Hop and Go Brewery Shuttle to taste at your own pace. The 1890s Vanderbilt-designed Biltmore Village has brick streets lined with lanterns and locally owned shops like Porter & Prince with its homemade soaps and indie designed clothes. Homey eats are easy to find at Corner Kitchen’s village-house dining room (think pecan-crusted mountain trout and bourbon sweet potatoes). And to get the broader lay of the land, head out along the 469-mile Blue Ridge Parkway for local ranges with postcard-perfect views.
How to Get There
It was definitely and enjoyable 1 night visit. It’s located right in the downtown, very close to the Biltmore main entrance (beware you still need to drive or Uber in there) many restaurants and stores around. A return for sure.
My husband and I came to Asheville for a weekend getaway in December. We cannot say enough positive remarks about the Grand Bohemian. First and foremost, the service we experienced was above and beyond what we hope for from a hospitality group. Each and every employee we encountered, from the valet to the restaurant staff to the concierge, was so friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and beautifully decorated. The restaurant in the hotel was delicious. We did have a slight issue when ordering room service. Our food took longer to arrive than the estimated time provided when we ordered, and we had an appointment at the spa so we were unable to wait for the food to arrive. The hotel more than made up for this by providing a complimentary lunch as well as a lovely bottle of champagne waiting for us in our room. We also indulged in a massage at the spa on site. It was glorious!! We will definitely return to this hotel when we visit Asheville again!
Stayed 4 nights at the hotel with old college friends. Hotel is extremely unique.
The lobby is an exceptional place to gather for hot Chocolate or cocktails with cozy fireplace having comfortable furniture around it.The artwork displayed throughout the hotel is diverse & sets off the beautiful decor & design throughout.
The rooms were very clean & the housekeeping staff bent over backwards for any of our requests.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone that appreciates individuality in accommodations. The Grand Bohemia sets a very high bar.
We really like this hotel, it does feel like you are in a lodge. The lobby fireplace is amazing. The people and service are second to none. Very cool art, nice rooms. We love just walking around from the lobby. We will be back again.
Coming from two lovely nights at The Inn on Biltmore Estate, it was different walking into Grand Bohemian. Very woodsy, lodge feel. Spent two nights last week.
Pros: Beautiful hotel, amazing artwork throughout. The dinner at their restaurant was delicious! Nice lobby vibe with huge fireplace to enjoy. Rooms/bathroom are clean and nice. Location was good for downtown Asheville and Biltmore.
Cons: No bottled water available anywhere unless you want to pay $5 for the Evian in your room. We had four women to one room but had adequate space but nowhere really to sit. Lobby is small so you have to get down there early to find seating. The big problem was the noise. Our room was at an intersection...a train track was about two blocks away and had to be close to a hospital. So, all night we heard traffic, horns, train and ambulance sirens. The last night, add the couple next door having, well, a grand ole time which we heard every moment, word, and soon after TV blaring. I didn't sleep at all that night.
