The best part of this hotel is the location. We stayed on July 4th weekend and we literally walked right outside the door to see the fireworks! Very convenient to Pack Place Square, Thomas Wolfe House, and all the downtown life. The bathrooms were quite small, but the room was clean and comfortable. Even with a full hotel, it was... More

A huge thank you to Kevin for switching over the laundry when my husband and son came to visit from Boy Scout Camp! We went out for dinner and worried that we had left the laundry sitting in the washer and Kevin, a manager, was kind enough to jump in and help us out. Hotel was a good base for... More

I had a comfortable stay at the Renaissance Asheville. The room was clean and quiet. A big plus is the Thomas Wolfe Memorial Home which is right next door. People travel a long distance to see Wolfe's home. All you have to do if you stay at this hotel is walk a minute or two. The hotel is also easy... More

We were very happy with everything about the hotel, from the location to the room amenities to the staff. However, the walls are very thin, as we found out when we were awakened at 5 this morning by the loud conversations of the guests in the next room. At this price point, one would expect better sound insulation.

Spent 1 night visiting Biltmore Estate. Close to downtown and highways makes it easy to find and equally easy to walk downtown, though our dinner plans required a drive. Lobby and rooms have been refreshened, beds comfy, Concierge Lounge had a great view but was both undersized and understaffed. Not many people when we went for breakfast at 8am and... More

Great first impression: very attentive and engaged staff, good room location/view and interesting decor. The pool is huge - one of the biggest we've seen in many years of travel, we were thrilled! Downtown location is both quiet, yet a quick walk to good dining. Unfortunately, the beds were terrible. Very saggy and old mattresses. I woke up with back... More

I stayed at this hotel for almost a week for a work trip. The lobby was beautiful with amazing art. My room had a beautiful view and was very comfortable. The restaurant onsite was very reasonable (hotel restaurants are often so expensive) and the food was wonderful. The bar onsite was lovely too for a drink at the end of... More

Rooms were fine. Clean. Comfortable. This is an older hotel so bathrooms are small and rooms are not large, but for a downtown hotel they are fine. Restaurant right off lobby was very good for breakfast and for lunch. Good food; good service. Friendly nice staff. We were with a very large convention and all events were well handled. Parking...

My wife and I spent three nights at the Renaissance and it was near perfect for our needs. First, the hotel gets high marks for the location in a quieter area of downtown, ready access to I-240, and within just a few walking blocks of the heart of downtown. The amenities are standard Marriott fare: spacious clean room with a... More

My wife and I along with a friend in another room, spent 4 nights in the hotel. The staff was friendly, accomodating and knowledgeable. The rooms were nice and very clean and we were left extra coffees at a simple request. The downtown town area is very walkable and the hotel is on the edge of everything. They have a... More
