28 The Omni Grove Park Inn Reviews
Married on 05/11/2019
Overall, we could not have asked for a more beautiful and unique venue for our wedding last weekend. Our guests were blown away with the beautiful views, the attentive staff, and the historic nature ... Read more of the Grove Park. We got married at their Country Club venue and LOVED how secluded and private it was...it felt like we had a mansion to ourselves for the whole night without the pressure of dozens of tourists/hotel guests looking on or interrupting photos and things. It is an old building; my husband is much more into the antique/character look than I am, but his excitement over the space made me love it in the end. The outdoor patio space and covered terrace are just GORGEOUS. Unfortunately, we had an atypical Asheville day of thunderstorms almost ALL DAY so we missed a lot of the classic mountain views/photo opportunities up at the Main Inn because of the logistics with the rain. BUT Annie and the GPI team handled the weather issues gracefully and in a way that did not stress me out at all! They also were able to add a last minute brunch that my husband's mother wanted to plan. The food was amazing and we got so many compliments on it from our guests, many whom are self-proclaimed "foodies". They handled a variety of dietary restrictions and allergies with ease. Annie was extremely accessible the day of, and even gave me her personal cell phone number. She was able to stop by our reception and the brunch the next morning! The only real cons aren't true cons, you just have to know what you're getting into. This venue is expensive, so not the place if you are on a truly set/tight budget because there are MANY hidden fees associated with staying at the resort and having an event there. There's a service charge, resort fee, state taxes...it just seemed to add up. Our per-head cost got extremely high even though we chose the least expensive meal plan and only the second tier bar package. They were extremely kind and added some liquors to our bar package that were family favorites which we weren't expecting to be a possibility! Planning from long distance was also a little tricky at this venue. Jocelyn, our sales manager, went ABOVE AND BEYOND to provide us photos of the venues since we were basically booking sight-unseen, and we were able to do a walk through on a later date during our tasting. However, if you are doing the same, make sure you choose a wedding planner or florist/decor team who knows the space because you can't always have access to it based on other events even if it's the only time you can make it work! You also have to just trust that they will start prioritizing your wedding as it gets closer to the date; I am very type A and organized and especially doing it from out of town I wanted the details set sooner rather than later. This is a very busy venue with many events and that was frustrating for me at first. But within the last 3 months leading up to our wedding the whole team definitely made me feel like a priority and became much more responsive to emails/phone calls. Overall, we felt like it was worth it mainly for the overall experience of the weekend. The honeymoon on us package was the PERFECT end to a busy weekend and we were able to take advantage of the spa both with our wedding party and as a couple after the big day!

We had an excellent experience at Grove Park. The catering contact was super nice and responsive, easy to work with. They were able to make everything we wanted happen perfectly, and even held on ... Read more setting up the event until the last minute, letting the rain pass (rather than moving the event inside), allowing our event to go just as planned. The bartender and service staff we had were great, overall a super awesome experience! There's no way we could have had a better view, or memory of our rehearsal dinner!

We just had our wedding at the Grove Park Inn and it was Spectacular! First of all- we lucked out with the weather- perfect sunshine, light breeze and mid-60's! Our wedding had the most beautiful view ... Read more of the mountains with an awesome outdoor fire! Food and cake were delicious and the staff was incredibly helpful. If you want to feel like a celebrity on your big day- the Grove Park Inn is the place to have it!
