Our flight was very late arriving into TPA, so rather than fight drowsiness and drive over an hour to our destination, we pulled out of the airport and into the Renaissance. It was very late and the staff was courteous and attentive. Much-needed room service seemed to take too long, but the room was incredibly comfy and the fare was... More

This is among the finest hotels we have visited in the US. It is sleek, well-designed, pleasantly decorated, comfortable and accommodating. We love it and make this a top choice on every visit. There are plenty of other very good places to stay in the Tampa area, but this is the one we like best for special occasions. What adds... More

My sisters and I were here to begin a stay in the Tampa area. We thought the decor was fresh and lovely in both the public areas and the guest rooms. The location is very convenient, close to the airport and adjoining a very nice shopping mall, so if members of your party come in at different times, it makes... More

We have stayed at this hotel twice over the past 2 years. This is a great hotel chain and the property is in a great location by a lot of shopping and dining. The rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated and the hotel smells amazing with the candles they burn... I had to buy some for home! :) Good place... More

We needed a hotel close to Tampa Airport with an early (5:30-6:00 AM) shuttle and close to a shopping area or local attraction to spend the day without a car. The attached upscale mall with lots of dining options was perfect. The staff members were pleasant at check-in and were able to give helpful suggestions. The bed was comfortable. The... More

$13/day for internet??? Who does that anymore? Even "budget"hotels offer free access. Also who pus out a tip envelope for housekeeping.? I leave something every day and I don't require heavy- handed guilt. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Mgmt needs to be more customer focused though; empower frontline staff to say "yes". Good location for shopping, adjacent to upscale... More

We recently stayed here and were impressed by the elegant surroundings. Staff were polite and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Several drawbacks included no complimentary internet or breakfast. We were disappointed that the hot tub closed before the early evening -- it would have been perfect for a chilly night in Tampa. We loved how close the hotel was... More

I was here for a bussiness meeting in the 1st week of Feb and I had such a lovely stay here with my husband and infant. The fornt desk concierge Nelson was such a charmer and was such a helpful soul.

Just got back from a long weekend spent in this hotel. It did not meet my expectations for a 4 star hotel. There were some interesting design aspects, but overall the carpet and fixtures seemed a little tired and in need of updating. No complimentary breakfast and no complimentary internet. In today's market, that's just not competitive for a leisure/weekend... More

My husband and I arrived in Tampa to see the Tom Petty. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The beds were cozy and the room was clean.
