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
My wife and I have a rule on lengthy vacations. At the beginning of the trip and end of the trip if we can we stay in a luxury hotel. This trip the beginning of our trip was The Grand Bohemian in Ashville. Rooms were luxurious great bedding. Shower and bathroom were spacious and strong shower head. We didn't eat at the hotel but it looked great. We did have a drink at the bar and enjoyed the den like chairs with a huge fireplace. We also enjoyed the art gallery. You are right in the middle of downtown but when you are in the hotel you have know idea what's outside. After enjoying the sights of Asheville it was fantastic to come back to a place that felt like a pillow was enveloping you with comfort. Enjoy!
It's a Tuesday not a weekend. The hotel staff upgraded us to a nice suite. The room is nice the floor walking in is sticky but we paid $400+ a night for a basic room. My issue is with the upgrade. There was a conference here. They must have needed our room. Sat and watched everyone else check in for two hours as I sat in the lobby. Sure the room I eventually got is very nice I'm here one night I don't care all I wanted was a room and a bed and internet. . Beware if they offer an upgrade tell them you want a room now or you too will sit for two hours in the lobby. I think the focus here is on the people attending events, get them rooms keep them happy so if you are traveling solo I would go to the WIndsor or another hotel, there are many around. For $400 you don't want to sit in the lobby for 2 hours. But I will say the room is extremely nice so if you are good with checking in after 4 PM you will be fine just do not arrive early if you do plan on not being able to check in until 4. Just know the drill if you want a nicer room and they offer you one that probably means they need your room for an large event check in and if you are willing to wait you will get a better room but the free upgrade means they need you to sit around for a long time. Just think it through and ask question that way you are prepared for what you are signing up for. Unless you are staying in the off season they won't put you up in a suite so no worries as we are a one night stay and easy call for them. The hotel is nice just look for other options I would.
Friendly and helpful staff. Rooms were were beautiful and clean. The piano bar on Saturday night was a really fun atmosphere. Our family had a fantastic time in Asheville and the Grand Bohemian definitely lived up to our high expectations.
My wife and I took a side trip over to Asheville on a road trip to Nashville and Huntsville. We stayed 6 nights, enjoying the area and enjoying the hotel. The parking valets were all just great to us. The Bartenders, Chip and Brad, were fast, friendly, and made us feel as comfortable as locals. When we first arrived we were privileged to be greeted and easily checked in by Tina. She is a charming young woman, and is an outstanding representative of the elegance and grace of the hotel. She greeted us regularly during our stay, and with her friendly smile she was also an Ambassador for the ambiance of the Biltmore Village and and the hustle and bustle of Asheville. We also enjoyed speaking with Lauren at the front desk. We will be here again when we return to Asheville.
We did not spend the night here but looked around and talked with the staff regarding the hotel. We are going to be getting a Grand Bohemian Hotel in our town and wanted to see it. One of the staff told us that our hotel won't be like this one (lodge atmosphere), so I'm excited about the one to be built in Greenville. The decor inside is absolutely gorgeous. It has a nice sitting area with fireplace. There is alot of art on the walls that can be purchased. The ladies room was so clean and nicely decorated. It is located within walking distance to Biltmore Village.
