Room was huge including a walk-in closet. Newly remodeled tile bathroom. Big screen tv. All the amenities. Hotel itself has a lot of character- pictures from its remarkable past line the corridor walls. Shuttles run continuously over to the clubhouse. Wonderful spa.

From the perspective of a guest for business reasons (not golfing), I loved it. History, well managed hotel, quiet and comfortable, excellent conference rooms. Internet is good. The only suggestion is to not serve the powdered eggs to the alrge groups anymore. Don't even offer them to hosts please, because someone will try and save money which results in blah...

This was our 4th year to come to the resort for New Years. I am afraid it will be our last. As I read in a previous review about the dinner and 3 piece band in the main dining room, I was so jealous. In years past we have booked the dining room and not the ballroom experience because of...

Lovely location for a large group. Facility and grounds are beautiful, staff very accommodating, and small setting makes it an intimate experience. Breakfast buffet a special highlight and offering of different dining experiences a big plus. Spa is very inviting.

I have stayed here several times and enjoy every visit to Pinehurst! This is one of those classic, old hotels that has been tastefully updated. The service is amazing and the atmosphere is laid back and relaxed. Whether you are planning a golf trip, conference or personal vacation. Pinehurst won't disappoint!

Service was friendly and professional. Food was outstanding. On the pricey side but worth every penny. Presentation was a feast for the eyes. If you want delicious food and excellent service make early reservations.

Since our family is scattered throughout the U.S., we chose Pinehurst as our Christmas destination. And what a magical stay it was! From beautiful decorations to delicious everything, life music at meal times and four o'clock tea, one was convinced Pinehurst got elves working on their staff. We stayed in two rooms in the grand Carolina Hotel. There was definitely...

The Pinehurst Resort caters to even the smallest whim of their guests. Have you ever stayed in hotel with a full time seamstress? 4 star food, attention to every detail ad a staff obsessed with service make this an unforgettable experience.

We had the pleasure of spending the weekend at the Carolina Inn for the Our State Magazine weekend. What a treat! We had a snow storm and the staff went above and beyond. The bell staff helped clean snow and ice from the cars and the facilities staff kept things warm and the sidewalks clear. Dining is superb. The breakfast...
