The Grove Park Inn opened on July 12, 1913. Secretary of State, William Jennings Bryan, delivered the keynote address to four hundred of the most distinguished men of the South, gathered for the opening banquet. He had no idea of how true his words would become when he proclaimed that The Grove Park Inn "was built for the ages."
There's a reason guests have been staying at The Grove Park Inn for one hundred years. They come for relaxation, rejuvenation and to breathe in the clean mountain air. The Inn, set atop Sunset Mountain, features guestrooms with spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains and its lush Donald Ross' designed golf course. Choose one of the Inn's oldest rooms in The Main Inn furnished with Roycroft Arts and Crafts décor. Or, opt for something larger and more modern with a room or suite located in the newer Sammons and Vanderbilt Wings, including the exclusive Club Floor.
Pamper yourself in the $50 million 43,000-square-foot subterranean spa featuring cavernous rock walls, arches, tunnels and 20 water features. The main pool area features two therapeutic waterfall pools, a warm mineral pool and lap pool with 6,500 fiber-optic stars embedded in the ceiling and constant underwater music. Enjoy exhilarating contrast pools, an inhalation room and eucalyptus-infused steam room.
The 50,000-square-foot Sports Complex is the home to indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a racquetball court, an indoor pool, a Fitness Club, a cardio room, table tennis and pool tables, a Tennis Pro Shop and lounges and locker rooms for guest use.
