We went to Pinehurst for last min family visit. We booked the hotel to enjoy the holiday experience. Hotel was sold out but we were offered condo. THESE ARE NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE SAME. We checked in late with luggage and baby so we were pleased to be given a map and directions at check in but once we...

The staff was phenomenal in all areas of the hotel. They were especially attuned to my needs when I had to be in a meeting and the Ryder Cup Lounge had not opened yet. The staff got my party seated and served in 20 minutes even as they were preparing to open for business. If you have a special need...

I stayed here for a week long conference. The staff was phenomenal and friendly. I loved the history of the building. The carpets in the room look somewhat worn. Houskeeping had left stickers from children's clothing on the lamp, lightbulbs that didn't work and someone else's clothing hanging on the bathroom door when I checked in. They did however remedy...

If you are ever in Pinehurst for Thanksgiving, are looking for an excuse not to cook, come check this spread out. Its epic. All the usuals, plus amazing sides. A few of the goodies we tried this year were a duck pasta, pumpkin cheesecake, and a couple tremendous soups. The carving stations are great. Hard to put it all into...

If you haven't been to Pinehurst Resort you don't know what you are missing. For golfers there are 9 challenging courses. If you like to play tennis or run or bike Pinehurst has it all. The Spa is second to none. I have been there over twenty times over 25 years and they keep improving without losing its charm. Usually...

We live in Pinehurst and love to go over to the Carolina. The atmosphere is truly majestic with all it's southern charm. The restaurants are great. The Ryder cup lounge is charming. A great pace to visit for golf , tennis , and all else.

The Carolina was completed only a few years after Pinehurst was established in 1895. This sprawling four story hotel has survived the years when so many of its ilk fell to fire, neglect or financial ruin. Today it is a stunning example of a well managed hotel built around the finest collection of championship golf courses in the United States....

The resort looks great. Big and spacious rooms in the main building. Clean and hospitable. Friendly service. Loved the complementary WiFi throughout the property. Very good food (enjoyed the Thanksgiving special and the morning breakfast). This place is quite famous for golf, but we had a great time at the SPA (truly excellent) and visiting the area. The Christmas decoration...

This was an amazing two day trip. We were fortunate to be there when the Inn was decorated for Christmas. It was beautiful. The rooms are immaculate and words cannot describe the breakfast buffet. We also dined at the Inn for lunch and dinner. All meals were excellent. The staff were courteous and knowledgeable. I am sure the golfing is...

This was our first visit to the resort. The staff is very attentive and the accommodations are very good. Wish I had more information about how the resort conducts business for example... gratuity included for some and not others would have been nice to know up front. The only thing that disturbed me was the noise that came from our...
