If you want to experience some of the finer things in life, step into the Grand Bohemian Hotel Asheville. The Tudor-inspired hotel, which is only a few steps away from the gates of the famous Biltmore Estate, was just completed in 2009 but fits almost seamlessly into Historic Biltmore Village.
The brand new structure was developed to offer a taste of Old World elegance and charm set in the comfortable, rustic ambiance of the mountain environment.
The 104-room Grand Bohemian boasts an award-winning restaurant called the Red Stag Grill, which has full-time executive chef who oversees a menu of steak, seafood, chicken and pasta. It's a popular destination for business lunches, as well.
Also on site is a 5,000-square-foot Poseidon Spa that includes a fitness center with cardio machines outfitted with personal TV screens. The spa also has treatment options such as hot stone massages and age antidote facials.
Meanwhile, the hotel is also home to a Grand Bohemian Gallery that showcases more than 100 works of art by local, regional and internationally recognized artists. Besides paintings, the artwork inside the interesting gallery includes glass, ceramics, jewelry and sculpture.
The hotel's luxurious guest rooms and private suites, with each room equipped with amenities such as lush Egyptian matelasse linens along with in-room DVD players, high-speed Internet access and LCD flat screen TVs. Most of the rooms also offer four-section bathrooms that have separate areas for vanity, shower, toilet and oversized soaking tubs.
The hotel also has stone flooring, marble accouterments and antique fixtures throughout its spacious lobby and sitting areas, along with several pieces of hand-carved wooden furniture. Unlike most upscale hotels, the management of the Grand Bohemian allows guests to have pets accompany them in their rooms.
