My wife and I needed a weekend retreat to relax, shop and eat. An internet search of reviews convinced us to give the Renaissance Tampa Plaza Hotel a try. We requested a quiet room and it was exceptionally quiet. The hotel is very well maintained. All of the staff were very pleasant. Was really pleased with Catherine at the Pelagia... More

All the staff were very attentive. Jimmy, Brandon, Joy, Yavonely and another woman at the front desk upon check in (I'm sorry I forgot her name) were excellent. The only problem we found was the refrigerator froze our stuff, the light on the vanity mirror only worked when facing the floor, and there was no recycling bin in the room.... More

The most relaxing and best located hotel in the Bay Area. Once you valet your car you won't need it again until you depart. Attached to international mall, the best of the best food and shopping is all a short walk just out of the front door. The staff is excellent and nothing is a problem.

The hotel is a comfortable and beautifully appointed property. The color scheme is bright and cheerful, and the maid service is quick and efficient. The front desk staff was friendly and quite helpful. There is a well equipped workout room and the pool is beautiful and large enough to swim laps. The hotel is adjacent to the high end International... More

I stayed here on a business trip at the end of March. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and extremely clean. It is located right next to the International Mall with plenty of fine shopping and 10 minutes from the airport. The service was very friendly in the hotel AND in the restaurant. I met Joanne, Room Service Waitress and she... More

My wife and I live in Tampa and this hotel is our go-to spot for a 1-2 night getaway anytime we possibly can to escape the kids and remind ourselves why we fell in love with each other 17 years ago. I never have an issue with an early check-in (11am-ish) which is absolutely wonderful when we can only manage... More

The service is great!! Also the restaurant in the hotel is worth the trip even if you aren't staying here, I'm a bit of a room service junkie and it tops anywhere I have ever been! Ask for Joanne she is the best!!

We checked into the Renaissance Tampa Hotel for business on 3-25-2015. We ate at the Pelagio restaurant and it was excellent. I had the burratta cheese appetizer (amazing)and the wild boar ragout over gnocchi for dinner. I don't usually order a meat dinner but nonetheless it was fantastic. The food is wonderful. I had an incident with a room service... More

I had the greatest experience this morning. Elaine in the Club lounge went above and beyond to help my son. I am traveling on business and he is never with me. She made chocolate milk from scratch and she ordered pancakes for him. Elaine is a valuable asset to your hotel.
