There is not much else that is better than warming up near the fireplace inside the lobby area of the Grove Park Inn.

This historical hotel-resort blends new and old into one.

When it is too cold outside to enjoy the view or a drink & snack, then a cozy room with a view at the Grove Park Inn will meet anyone's needs and unpublished amentities like popcorn in your room make it right for the night.

Built in 1913 of local granite, the Grove Park Inn ( has been a favorite of mine and will always be.

I really enjoyed the national gingerbread house competition and the display the resort laid our for the contest in November.

Would I stay here again---Absolutely yes.

Unique Qualities: I have enjoyed the Grove Park Inn in both summer and winter but Christmas time is especially nice with the decorations, the cold weather, and the events they sponsor including the national gingerbread house competition.

The spa is unreal. It lies beneath the foundation of the Inn and has every imaginable option for the spa-minded person.

Rooms facing the city are my favorite but I do not think there is a "bad" view anywhere on the property.
