“There’s a travel trend that’s sweeping the nation,” James Gibson, Managing Director for the Residences at Biltmore, said. “A recent article on MSNBC.com reported that people are exploring alternatives to hotels and bed and breakfasts. They want more space, better value, increased flexibility, and more privacy.”

A luxury-suite hotel can provide all of these things and more. In fact, the Residences at Biltmore is so proud of their 24-hour concierge service that they “wow” guests before they even arrive. Will they need a pet sitter? How about personal-shopping services?

Two weeks prior to arrival, scheduled guests are called to ensure that everything is in order upon arrival. Is there a special occasion that calls for flowers in the room? How about dinner for two and a bottle of champagne delivered from a favorite restaurant?

The 24-hour concierge service, “Concierge Condo,” helps guests with anything from making dinner reservations and arranging golf tee times to providing a list of breathtaking waterfall hikes and scheduling conference calls. They can even draw a warm bath for guests after a vigorous horseback riding adventure.

Staffed by a team of meticulously-trained professionals, concierge services free guests up to tend to the important tasks of business or to simply enjoy all that Asheville has to offer.

“Many people love to vacation in Asheville to view the breathtaking Vanderbilt’s Biltmore Estate,” one Ohio guest said, “but after spending four nights at the Residences at Biltmore, I felt like a Vanderbilt. My husband and I visited for our 40th anniversary and mere words cannot express how impressed we were with the services and accommodations.”

Masterfully-appointed studios, one, two and three bedroom, fully-furnished luxury condominiums are available. For more information on the Residences at Biltmore, visit: www.ResidencesatBiltmore.com. Ownership opportunities are also available.
