We stayed 2 nights in Dec for the Christmas holidays. The hotel is in a wonderful location, we could walk everywhere downtown, come back to the hotel to rest and go in and out again throughout the day.
The lobby is beautiful, so welcoming and well decorated. We were on the 9th floor with club access.The room was very spacious even with 2 queen beds, well equipped with a mini-fridge, and coffee tea machine, and the bedding was very comfortable, we slept so well that it was difficult to force ourselves to get out of bed in the morning. The only downside of the room was the size of the bathroom, it was small and a little difficult to move around.
There are plentiful good restaurants, wonderful shopping with beautuful arts and crafts shops in close vicinity. Walk into the Woolworth Gallery on Patton Ave, it is a treasure trove of wonderful gift items of great craftsmanship. We enjoyed wonderful brunch at Bistro 1896, a sumptous dinner at Bouchons, and if you are in Biltmore Village, have lunch at the Red Stag Restaurant.. yummy.
At the hotel, we really appreciated that even though it was the Christmas Eve/Day holiday, they still served breakfast, lunch and dinner with their usual quality standards of food and service. Even the Club floor lounge was available for breakfast and evening snacks every day.
But what made our stay most enjoyable was the staff, they are the most wonderful asset of the hotel ... they always exchanged smiles and cheerful greetings with all the guests, and were so responsive whenever we needed a helping hand to hold doors open or pick up a dropped item. They seemed to pop up out of nowhere when needed !
We thank you all at Renaissance for making our Christmas such a wonderful experience, and we are looking forward to our next visit soon. .
