I had a comfortable stay at the Renaissance Asheville. The room was clean and quiet. A big plus is the Thomas Wolfe Memorial Home which is right next door. People travel a long distance to see Wolfe's home. All you have to do if you stay at this hotel is walk a minute or two. The hotel is also easy walking distance from downtown Asheville. If you don't know how to get there, ask the front desk staff. The hotel shop is exceptionally good. They carry mainly American-hand-made craft items, selected by someone with very good taste. The shop is open long hours every day, staffed by people from the main shop of the craft store, so they are very knowledgeable about what they're selling. The food at the restaurant was good. The prices were much more reasonable than most hotel restaurants.As a Marriott Club member, I got a free morning paper. I was also entitled to a discount in the hotel shop, but I forgot to ask for the discount. My only complaint is that the water in the shower wasn't as hot as I'd like, and the spray was a lot weaker than I prefer.
