Grand Bohemian gets Travel+Leisure World’s “Best” award


Grand Bohemian Hotel Asheville — a Kessler Collection boutique hideaway in Biltmore Village — was recently honored with a 2012 Travel + Leisure World’s Best Award, an outstanding distinction from the leading and most well-read travel publication in the United States. Landing a spot in the Top Large City Hotels category, Grand Bohemian Hotel was chosen based on its exceptional service, luxurious accommodations and commitment to excellence, by readers who voted on hotels, destinations and companies that represent the very best in travel. Grand Bohemian Hotel Asheville ranked No. 34 amongst the large city hotels in the Continental U.S., and was the only hotel in Asheville, N.C. to make the list.

“It is an honor to be recognized by Travel + Leisure readers as a Top Large City Hotel,” said John Luckett, general manager of Grand Bohemian Hotel. “We’d like to thank our loyal visitors, as well as the Asheville community and residents of Western North Carolina, for your continued support. Without you, this recognition would not be possible.”

Named the “Best Luxury Hotel in North Carolina” by Frommer’s, “Readers’ Choice” by Conde Nast Traveler and a “World’s Best Hotel” by Travel + Leisure, Grand Bohemian Hotel is a European lodge-inspired boutique hideaway within the picturesque Biltmore Village. Reflecting the eclectic, edgy artistry of Asheville, along with the richness of the Blue Ridge Mountains, flavors of the region are showcased throughout the hotel, including locally farmed cuisine at Red Stag Grill, convenient access to historic and cultural sites, local artwork in the Grand Bohemian Gallery and naturopathic spa treatments at Poseidon Spa.
