If you are going to Asheville, NC, the Grove Park Inn is the destination of choice. That said, I still find this Renaissance the best choice for location, value and service. From here you can park and walk anywhere in Asheville. It's the best pick for business.
I write because I got excellent service again. I was traveling from Tennessee towards my next destination in the Carolina's. I realized at 8 PM I couldn't keep driving and was tired and hungry. I called a few hotels and got Susan J at the Marriott who not only got me a room at a good rate but offered to find me a restaurant that could take me at 10 PM when I got to Asheville.
After a few suggestion and a few calls she came back with a restaurant and a reservation. I went straight there and then to the hotel. That's going the extra mile for a business traveler. (The usual answer is ..."our restaurant will be open till 10 and then we have room service...")
The hotel is a basic modern Renaissance. Good basic gym. Restaurant is fairly standard. Nice outdoor sitting area. The heart of Asheville is about a three to four block walk.
