Umstead, Raleigh, NC, USA
Umstead the MagnificentI have yet to spend a night in one of the rooms in this five star hotel, nor have I had the luxury of a spa treatment, but as much as I dine in the restaurant there should be a plaque made in my honor. That is how much I love the Umstead in Cary, North Carolina. I’m not sure if it’s the pianist, the harpist, the breathtaking floral décor or the beautiful staff, but for some reason, I always want to return to delve into the luxurious moment this place has to offer. Not only are guests greeted at the entrance like kings and queens, but the gorgeous marble floor in the foyer and the elegant seating in the lounge instantly give the air of casual sovereignty. Whether meeting friends for a glass of wine or having a three course meal in the dining room, the Umstead is the best place to experience magnificence on an everyday basis. Treat yourself or a loved one to a meal here and it will be unforgettable.
