I recently stayed at the Carolina Hotel on business but my husband was able to join me for an evening cocktail party & dance at the Fair Barn, also in Pinehurst, & then a night at the Carolina. Though we didn't have much time the entire evening was wonderful. The room was spacious, clean & offered a view onto the...

The golf at Pinehurst is superb. Slow, but one treads hallowed ground here and so pace of play is secondary. The design values of #'s 4, 8, and 2 are astounding. The food at the resort is fine. Nothing special, but inoffensive. The rooms in the Carolina Hotel are . . . tired. And small. Our room had two beds,...

What is not to like about a resort that combines top notch golf, history and luxury in the beautiful state of North Carolina?? We visit to enjoy the Pinehurst Concours d'elegance. A lovely event that raises money for charity and includes a concert, this year the fabulous Sara Evans and of course really cool cars!

What a fabulous resort. The husbands golfed and the ladies spent two days in the luxurious spa. First, this spa is first class. I must say that the 80 min facial was my favorite I've ever experienced-anywhere. The hotel has southern charm and the staff are beyond friendly and accommodating. Don't miss the breakfast buffet, trust me. The beds are...

I attended a small family reunion in Pinehurst and we made dinner reservations here. I am so happy we did. The waitstaff was attentive, the decor was predictable but well kept and comfortable, and the food was outstanding. Consider making a reservation when you in town.

Father/Son trip to Play #2 while visiting family for Easter--could not have been a better weekend weather wise. The Hotel is creaky with history, huge room, not sure how one would watch flat screen from bed. Comfy bed, nicely appointed bath, and very friendly staff.
