A city that made the Forbes Travel Guide’s 18 Top Destinations Of 2018 now also has a 4-star restaurant to its credit.
The Forbes Travel Guide unveiled its annual Star Rating list this week, with Asheville’s Dining Room at The Inn on Biltmore Estate a new Forbes Travel Guide 4-star restaurant.
The Inn on Biltmore Estate maintains its 4-star hotel ranking, one it’s held for 17 consecutive years, according to a release from the Biltmore Estate.
Forbes Travel Guide’s annual Star Ratings are based on the reviews of anonymous inspectors who compare up to 900 hotels, restaurants and spas against stringent industry standards.
The Dining Room is one of three North Carolina restaurants with the 4-star designation this year, and the only one in Western North Carolina.
The Inn on Biltmore Estate is one of three North Carolina hotels to receive the rating. Old Edwards Inn and Spa in Highlands also has a 4-star rating.
“Our vision and goal at Biltmore is to preserve the art of hospitality, and the honor of receiving these ratings is a clear indication that we are delivering on that commitment,” said Charles Thompson, general manager of The Inn on Biltmore Estate, in the release.
The Inn on Biltmore Estate, opened in 2001, is one of two hotels located on the 8,000-acre estate of Biltmore.
It shares the property with Biltmore House, America’s largest home, completed in 1895 as the family home of George Vanderbilt.
