For many years it was the Bon Marche Department Store--The Tiffany of Department Stores. In 1985, after extensive remodeling, it opened as The Haywood Park Hotel. The hotel is not large--it consists of 33 suites--but has much to offer.
In keeping with the Art Deco style of the building, the lobby is done in soothing tones of maroon and mauve, with golden oak woodwork accented with gleaming brass.
Suites are remarkably spacious with rooms 15 to 20 percent larger than average hotel rooms. They have full living room areas, a wet bar, refrigerator, work desk with computer hookup, TV withremote control, two large walk-in closets, king-size beds, evening turn-down service, and sitting areas in bedrooms. Baths are done in Spanish marble. In addition to a Jacuzzi, they have double vanities, lighted make-up mirror, a garden-size tub with separate shower, a hair dryer, TV and telephone.
The restaurant, named 23 Page, is done in Aubergine tones with special paint treatment and an open kitchen. A continental breakfast is delivered to your suite daily. Among dinner entrees, a favorite is grilled lamb chop with radicchio and artichoke mousse. A popular hors d'oeuvres is Panko-fried oysters. The bar's house special drink is the Colorado Margarita.
The ballroom, with a capacity of 200 people, is in use every weekend with dance music provided by a jazz band.
The hotel is perhaps best known for its business and conference facilities. Its two conference rooms have a capacity of 600 and it has the equipment to provide any kind of room arrangements.
Sauna and massage are available on the property. Guests are extended privileges to the Aerobic Center.
The entrance to the world-famous Biltmore Estate and Winery is a ten-minute drive away, but perhaps most popular is the adjoining Promenade with its variety of shops and restaurants.
