I have visited this hotel several times and since my last visits I would say that the hotel is slipping. While I would say that overall it is still quite a good hotel with a pretty good location on the edge of downtown, close to the attractive Pack Square, it is in need of attention and they seem to want...

I recently had the opportunity to spend a night at the Renaissance Asheville Hotel while speaking at a conference that was held in the property's meeting and banquet rooms. As others have commented, the hotel's greatest asset is its location, which puts virtually all of downtown Asheville within a quick walk. Additionally, the lobby area is quite stylish, and the...

My sincere apologies for the recent stay you experienced at our hotel. It is clear we fell short in our efforts to provide you with the first class experience you have come to expect from a hotel of our caliber. As far as the Marriott Reward points, I will certainly correct this issue and make sure they are posted to... More

I stayed at the Renaissance several years ago and was back this past weekend. It's a great location....easy walk into town and the great shopping and restaurants. They offer free parking but the lot was packed on the weekend nights (not sure their approach of having someone stand outside by the entrance is effective at deterring people who want to... More

Spent the weekend here with my wife and was impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the stat when we checked in. The room was standard (a little small for a Renaissance) but was clean and stocked with all the needed amenities. The bed was comfortable and we both had a great night sleep. Parking was ample and free but... More

First time in Asheville and this was in the perfect location--walking distance to trendy, boho, Hipster downtown shops and restaurants. Cool, modern lobby. Has restaurant and room service, but we didn't use either. Comfy beds and pillows, but thought bathroom was a bit too small. Other than that, great hotel!

This hotel is in the perfect, location! Very professional friendly staff-our room was a corner room and was the average size with two double beds. Request for higher up floor to take advantage of the great mountian views. The lobby was upscale trendy,cool, and a great place to hang out. There is also an outdoor patio that is modern, and...

Easy walk to shops , outside vendors, and restaurants. The chocolate cake served in the bar was great. The bar area was nice. Staff are very friendly. Nice outside lounge area too. A good place for large events.

My wife Shelly and I recently visited this hotel for one week, while on vacation. It is in a great spot in the city, the rooms were clean and the food/drink was fantastic!

We recently stayed because we wanted an affordable downtown Asheville hotel. This was great! Well, they didn't read the notes on the reservation at check-in, but they rallied and remedied everything. I had read about it being a little dated, but I didn't think so. The rooms were well appointed and the hotel was quiet, for having a conference and... More

Business trip for 4 nights to this hotel. The hotel is very conveniently located, close to the downtown area of Asheville and to the numerous cafes, restaurants and activities. I had a "king" room: the bed was excellent (very comfortable, plenty of pillows) but the bathroom was cramped and, for this type of property, had a surprising "shower in the... More
