Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

Excellent location & very good otherwise. Showing a little wear & tear due to age but not enough to be a problem. Cleanliness is good, not a problem.
Excellent location for downtown, ease in walking or driving to area venues.
Service from staff was tops!
Seems to be a very often selected stay for tourists, business people & groups, &airline crews. Excellent little bar, great seating on the covered patio.
Will definitely choose again when in the area.

Just wrapped a weekend stay in Asheville ands stayed at the Renaissance. Recently renovated - lobby/bar area is very nice, rooms are standard, very nice hotel rooms. If you are looking to be close to all the main streets in downtown Asheville - and love to walk to shop, dinner, drinks and walk back - this is the perfect place. Is literally 2 blocks from the main streets of Asheville. Hotel is great for couples or families. Park in the back for free. Would come back again for sure!

You know you're not in Kansas anymore when the two "downtown" hotels are a renaissance and a W (the Aloft.) Midcentury, so not as lavish as newer places, and yes the bathrooms are very small and cramped. But very good price on a thursday night and we've paid more for Fairfield s without even getting free parking (in Bremerton washington of all places.) Staff are always warm and friendly, the king room was large and comfy and while the concierge lounge was small and crowded at breakfast, at least the other guests were polite as we tried to stay out of each others way at the juice and coffee stations. Hint: stock enough club soda in the lounge that its not all "reserved" for mixed drinks. another hint: get some of those nifty "4th generation" fairfield lamps to add additional electrical outlets to the rooms. Great quiet location, friendly welcoming staff, reliable Marriott quality.

Check-in went smooth, but the lady told us nothing about property and wasn't into conversing. Room was clean and housekeeping staff nice (although we always saw them gathered gossiping by elevator). Room service over priced, but surprisingly good. Bar closed to early Friday night, but great atmosphere and loved outdoor sitting area! Breakfast buffet good and service was alright (omelet maker man was so funny and really left you in a good mood). Location was great--- close enough to walk downtown. I'd stay again if I'm back in Asheville.

There are less expensive hotels in Asheville, but this one is guaranteed to please. It's in a wonderful central location to lively downtown Asheville. Park you car (free) in the hotel parking lot and take a walk or a short ride to all this great small mountain city has to offer. The rooms are clean and sizable, the beds are comfortable, and many rooms have nice views of the surrounding mountains. The newly renovated lobby is quite attractive, and is staffed by super-friendly and helpful desk clerks. There's a nice little bar and a lovely outdoor patio--across the street from the historic Thomas Wolfe house-- for relaxing after a busy day of sightseeing. The hotel restaurant has decent dinners and more-than-decent breakfasts to fuel you for the day. We've housed our out-of-state-guests d there for a family wedding, and all of them were pleased. They do a fine job, all around, of making you feel welcome.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a mountain view.

Hotel is in a good location, has wonderful views and everything you would expect from a higher end hotel. Pool and hot tub are indoors, gym is clean, there is coin operated laundry, nice restaurant, good bar scene, and an outdoor area that you can bring food and drink into that is covered. Business center has wonderful views and is a great place to breakfast.

Room Tip: You want mountain view room

This is obviously an older hotel but has been refurbished very nicely. Very attractive lobby.
Frond Desk personnel were very friendly and accommodating. One refreshing detail is that on-site parking is free!
There are other newer, more exciting hotels around, but for the price and its location I thought the Renaissance was a good choice.

Room Tip: Odd numbered rooms face towards the mountains and have nicer views.
