We tried to book the Marriott Waterside Tampa for a night pre-cruise, but they were full due to a convention. Next on my list was the Renaissance International Plaza, and I'm actually glad my first choice was booked, or I never would have found this nice hotel. We were picked up by the hotel shuttle at the Tampa airport --... More

We stayed here before a flight out of Tampa. This hotel is very nice. It is decorated in a style that is very comforting and relaxing. It is located right next to a high end mall with some nice restaurants and clubs. We had breakfast in the hotel restaurant, Pelagia Trattoria. They have these wonderful pancakes with a very light...

We booked about 10-15 rooms for guests toward a wedding including a suite for us, but I found attention and service very lacking at times. The only positives I can think of is that the location is good, walking distance to the mall and Bay Street. However, the hotel was very difficult to reach to get information on booking multiple...

We had an excellent stay while in Tampa for a long weekend for a Green Bay Packer game. The hotel seemed to be close to full, but they handled the crowd fine. The rooms were clean, neat and comfortable. The hotel is located steps from the International Plaza mall as well as "Bay Street", a restaurant and entertainment complex. This... More

It is in a great location, literally on top of the mall. You can reach the mall without stepping outside the hotel and their are lots of great restaurants within walking distance. From Tampa International Airport, it is a maximum ten minute drive and even less on the return if traffic is good. Service is great and the staff are... More
