Brandon and Hannah really handled a power outage in the local area in a most-professional manner. The hotel is always a welcome stay during a year of constant travel and the team truly made a tough situation a most pleasurable stay. The bottle of wine and assorted goodies in the room after the outage was a very nice touch!

The hotel was going through renovations. Sections of the hotel were not lit properly, including garden paths and hotel corridors. Very unsafe. A robe in our room was dirty. This now answers the question if the robes are exchanged after every guest.

We stayed here for Labor Day weekend in 2013.... I read wonderful things about the resort and had high expectations for our stay. Our room was on the lower level of one of the bungalows and there were TILES, TILES, TILES all over the bathroom. The room was not very modern and had a strong musty odor. We had access...

My husband and I stayed here the first few nights of our honeymoon and really enjoyed our stay. The service was excellent, and the bungalow was so cozy. We really enjoyed ourselves. My only complaint was that the very last day of our stay the power went out, and we were not given any extras or comped at all for...

We celebrated husband's b-day with a Garden Room Suite, a stellar meal at Bella Vista, complete with our favorite wine (Cervaro della Sala, an Umbrian Chardonnay), a great massage and exercise routine at the Spa, and a wonderful breakfast. Never mind the torrential rain - the Four Seasons Biltmore delivers, over and over again. We have now celebrated his 50th,...

I have stayed at the Biltmore many times over the years. I never cease to be surprised by the wonderful service and how exquisitely charming the hotel remains. I attend a yearly medical conference at the hotel yearly. I am sure the superb hotel is the main reason for the meeting's continued success.

Room was beautiful and private. Every last detail was taken care of, even when I left my sunglasses on the table, when I returned, housekeeping had put a cleaning cloth underneath them. Plus my computer cords were scattered, housekeeping gathered them up and put an elastic band on each one. Who does that?? Love staying there whenever I can!

Stunning hotel with architecture from another time ... room was huge with separate walk-in wardrobe - wheelchair accessible bathroom was perfect, plus a big bath (often a bath is dropped out of ADA rooms but this bathroom was nearly big enough to be a single bedroom on it's own). Nice touch that the phone had charging cables for old and...
