Renaissance Asheville Hotel
Ranked #28 of 66 Hotels in Asheville
Reviewed January 28, 2014

This is a great property and just off of I-240. It was cold when we were there so we drove to several locations, but had it been warm there are several areas within reasonable walking distance. We were upgraded to the top floor and had a great view of the mountains. We also had access to the Executive lounge which had a great breakfast. The evening reception wasn't quite as large. It had cheese and crackers, one hot item, and fruit. It was very nice, but limited in comparison to the breakfast. The rooms were very nice and roomy. We were on a cross country trip and having a small refrigerator was nice to store some of our cold items. The hotel has written directions to the Biltmore and other sites. Definitely what you would expect of a Renaissance.

Wow! The artsy vibe you feel entering through the revolving doors on a cold winter night with the modern open sided fireplace ablaze set the tone. Our room was clean and comfy. Front desk was super helpful with restaurant suggestions and even made our dinner reservation!! It was a little walk to the heart of downtown but the cold made it seem much further. We highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here this past weekend while visiting Asheville. I absolutely love this hotel and everything it has to offer. It is in a great location, very modern, and has everything I need to stay connected and navigate. Withing walking distance to shops and great food and a short drive to Biltmore, Biltmore Village and everything Asheville has to offer. The best place downtown to stay for business of pleasure!

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor with a view!

As a frequent visitor to Marriotts I have to say this place was overwhelmingly average. My biggest complaint is with the size of the bathrooms: miniscule. Possibly the smallest hotel bathroom I've seen. Two people could definitely not maneuver to get ready in there at the same time. It was also in need of an update and included some quick repairs (for example, there was a broken tile on the wall and the wallpaper had been cut around the broken tile instead of replacing the tile). The location, however, is very convenient to walking everywhere you would want to go except Biltmore. Breakfast was included, as were free bottles of water and chocolate during turndown service. Friendly staff. There was some kind of cheesy financial convention going on but the participants did not overwhelm the hotel. If I go back go to Asheville, I would stay somewhere else even though it would mean not earning Marriott points.

Room Tip: High floor; club is on 12. Both directions seemed to have good views.

I am a Marriott Rewards Member and I am generally loyal to the brand. This hotel is the worst Renaissance I have ever stayed at. Hotel has obviously been around a long while. Small rooms and very small bathrooms. My allergies killed me so there must have been a lot of dust or mildew. If you are used to staying at Renaissance hotels you will be disappointed. If you are traveling with kids you find the mini bathroom is a pain. For the same money the Indigo is a better value.

Thank you for your candid feedback regarding your stay with us. You are correct that our property has been a staple of downtown Asheville for some time, however the concerns about the cleanliness of the room are never acceptable and I have made our housekeeping department aware. We will definitely take feedback regarding the room sizes such as yours into consideration the next time we makeover our rooms. If you would like to contact me directly to further discuss the matter it would be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Kevin Allustiarti

Very good room, great location and very clean.
Front desk staff is very friendly and helpful.
Breakfast was not as good as expected though. Limited options to serve and very busy staff to support customers.

We stayed there over the 4th of July weekend. The building seems a bit older (hence the loud HVAC unit), but the room was clean. We had a great mountain view from our room. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We saw several guests staying there with dogs - must be pet friendly. The 4th of July fireworks took place right next to the hotel and we had the best seats in town, just by standing in the hotel hallway. Would definitely try to go back there for 4th of July. The restaurant was just ok.
