“Ok. Nothing Special. ”
Reviewed 28 October 2013 via mobile

Second time staying at this hotel and it just seems OK. The rooms are small and the hotel is impersonal. It gets the job done but isn't worth the rack rate. I guess they can charge as much due to the location -- which is great if you want to be downtown.

Stayed October 2013

The hotel is on the edge of the historic district so you can park your car and walk everywhere. The rooms were nicely furnished. The Staff was helpful. It was a nice hotel. It was priced below most of the others but I thought it was great. I am a snob when it comes to hotels and this was perfect.

This is my second visit to the Renaissance in Asheville. The hotel is in very convenient location near downtown. The majority of the staff was very friendly and helpful. I was slightly disappointed that my room was not cleaned during the day while I was out for meetings. I'm sure it was an oversight and at least they bought me clean towels. I would recommend this hotel to any traveler and I would stay there again.

The Renaissance staff exceeds expectations. Hotel amenities including the covered patio make for a perfect environment for larege and small cluster meetings. A treat was the Renaissance proximity to the Thomas Wolfe Museum. The treasured artifacts were a history lesson that this author deeply appreciated. The lobby and my room are beautifully appointed. I highly recommend the Renaissance where you can stroll close by and enjoy local artisans and other local businessl.

We had a very nice room despite the fact that it was small. It is a great location, close to the downtown area. Asheville has wonderful craft/artisan stores and maintains a small town feel. There are many bars and restaurants.

The lobby of the hotel is pretty and the breakfast was very good. Check in was uneventful and the front desk was able to help us identify routes so that we were able to navigate a wheelchair around town, despite the hills.

I stayed two nights at the Renaissance and wish I could have stayed longer. My room was on the tenth floor with a beautiful view of the mountains. The bed, pillows, linens were immaculate and very comfortable. The room was well appointed and the bathroom fresh and bright. The hotel staff went out of their way to be helpful. I stayed here a few years ago also, and was glad to see that their standards have remained high.

Room Tip: The entire hotel is non- smoking.
