Multi-Million Dollar Renovation Project Complete for
the Renaissance Asheville Hotel in North Carolina

Managed by Windsor Management Services

ASHEVILLE, NC – The Renaissance Asheville Hotel is putting the final touches on a sophisticated redesign that infuses Asheville’s unique style and welcoming culture throughout the property.

“Through this multimillion dollar renovation, we have captured Asheville’s well known, relaxed living atmosphere,” said Herman Turk, Regional Vice President for Windsor Management Services, which manages the Renaissance Asheville Hotel. “Returning or new vacationers and event planners with their guests will appreciate our new features and ambiance, paired with the excellent service we are known for delivering.”

“We are also proud to offer the local community an exciting new restaurant on par with Asheville’s fine dining spots, to enjoy drinks and dinner with their family and friends,” he added.

Casual chic transformation

Guests will enter through the new lobby, which features bright, rich woods complemented by marble flooring. The warm and inviting mood continues with the lobby’s fireplace and comfortable seating area.  The registration area invites conversation and interaction during check in, with individual pods for one-on-one service replacing a traditional desk.

The completely new Writer’s Bistro is a casual chic restaurant inspired by North Carolina’s rich literary history. Its private dining room can seat up to 40 for special events, while maintaining the flexibility for guests to pay individually.

The Writer’s Bistro menu is inspired by farm-to-table, offering locally grown and raised ingredients.

Appalachian Crafts II is a larger gift shop with an open layout that encourages visitors to browse the locally crafted souvenirs to select the right reminder of their Asheville experience.

The Renaissance Asheville Hotel is managed by Windsor Management Services, the hotel management company of Santa Monica-based WCG Hotels. The company manages nearly 30 upscale hotels throughout the U.S.
