This is a very nice hotel. Rooms are comfortable. Staff is attentive. The hotel is next to the International Plaza with great dining choices and lots of shopping. 1.5 miles from the airport. An excellent choice. Bar is currently being remodeled but they have made a nice alternate inside the lobby. Wifi is expensive.

Hotel is very we located, just next to the international plaza and very close to best buy, DSW and others. However, in this second visit I noticed they are having issues with staffing. Yesterday for example, restaurant was full and there were only two waiters for the whole place.

Loved this hotel. Great property, staff and location. Its connected to a beautiful shopping center and best in class retailers. Stayed here several times and love it. Its near the airport and with access to the causeway (Clearwater).

This is a pleasant and welcoming hotel, great location for shopping if you're into that, and convenient to the airport. Downstairs staff is topnotch, specials kudos to Amy at the front desk and Gabriela at the coffee bar who went out of their way to deliver great service. Rooms are clean and comfortable.

We stayed at the Renaissance recently for a Tampa Bay football game. As mentioned the hotel is nice, in a great location attached to the upscale International Plaza, and right around the corner from the stadium. We got a great weekend rate for our room and with our Marriott status we supposedly received an upgrade, but as other reviewers have... More

I frequently stay at Marriott properties for business, and aside from the location of this property, it was a very disappointing experience... Starting with the reservation specialist. The staff at this property definitely don't exhibit Marriott customer service levels. The rooms were also disappointing. After reserving a king, I was given 2 very uncomfortable doubles. The bathrooms are very small... More
