Again, I am wishing TA had half circles because I would give this hotel a solid 3.5 rating. We stayed at the Renaissance for 4 nights and the biggest pro by far is its location to downtown Asheville. You can walk to anything you might want to do. Additionally, we thought that the hotel overall was nice, clean, and safe...three things that are generally important to us when we travel.
While there were no glaring problems with our stay, there was just something missing that makes me not rate it higher. They are all small issues, but when you sum them up, they take away from the traveling experience. The bathroom was small, the smushy thing on the bed kept sliding and so poor husband kept feeling like he too was sliding off the bed at night, the internet was expensive, our tv didn't get consistent reception (they use satellites we later found out), there was no mirror in the exterior of the room so while my husband was showering, I couldn't get ready as well...you get the idea. Like I said, nothing that was too awful, but enough that I was ready for home by the end and was a little sad when I saw our final bill.
I would recommend the Renaissance for it's location and I would assure other travelers that we felt it was safe and clean. However, for the price and the amenities, I can't help but wonder if there isn't better in Asheville.
