I took my wife to the Carolina for a special "monumental" birthday and it was a tremendous success. The staff at the Carolina were exemplary and friendly while providing top drawer service. We had a couple of small issues within the room and they were rectified immediately. The room was very comfortable and the sleep was "like a rock" due...

This is a luxurious and elegant establishment that exudes the traditions of golf. Very nice service from start to finish. I spent 3 nights there for a corporate event and was able to enjoy the experience at no cost to me. Very expensive however: the forced addition of an 18% gratuity at the dining rooms made for an eye-popping check:...

Visited Pinehurst Resort as part of a conference. Our guest room was in the Carolina Villas, which are adjacent to the Carolina Hotel and West Lawn Pool. Pros: Gorgeous property, conveniently located, great services and staff, high quality food and drinks. Cons: Parking lots fill up quickly and are not convenient for the Villas.

We have stayed in the Carolina twice now, once in 2010, for medical meetings. The first stay was a bit of a disaster but this last stay wasn't quite so bad. Check-in was average although the bell staff was very efficient and enthusiastic in getting us to our room. Our third floor room was nice for being in an historic...

Whether in Pinehurst for business or pleasure stop by and see the staff at the Ryder Cup Lounge... The staff there will make sure your needs are taken care of. Great beer/wine/liquor selection while sitting on the porch in a rocker or inside in a comfy chair...

My expectations were high since my wife had never been there. We were in the area for the Tour de Moore Cycling event. I had been there in the past for meetings and golf. Upon arrival very nice Bellman greeted us. The we got to the front desk. They must have had better things to do than greet guests since...

If you love golf and golf history, you can't beat Pinehurst and The Carolina. Walking the halls where golf greats have passed, seeing the many, many photographs-both in the hotel and the golf club house-of the history of the place, standing at the club house looking down #2, it's like you're a part of the history. The food, service, and...

This is an amazing place. It doesn't get any better than sitting in rockers on the porch at night drinking Carolina tea, just like who knows who else over the past 100 years. The rooms, awesome.

This is a must do event if you are into food and wine. This is my 10th time attending this wonderful event in this rolling hills area of North Carolina. Of course if you are a golfer, you can play the famous Pinehurst #2, home of the US Open this year. Great food, great chefs, fantastic wines and great entertainment.
