Renaissance International Mall Tampa FL This Hotel has a really relaxing atmosphere but what really stands out is the extra effort extended by the people at the front desk when you walk up to check in!

We recently held a conference at this hotel. It is ideally located, within 10 minutes of hte Airport. Everything was top quality and we experienced no issues.

I came to Tampa for business and it's a rather busy hotel. But everyone was very polite and hotel was clean. One associate that stood out particular was Philicia Darns. She acknowledged me every time I went through the lobby, made my lunch reservations and had water ready when I came back from my morning run. With my job I'm... More

Stayed 4 nights at the conference rate of $199 + tax. I'm a Marriott Gold member and thus did not pay for the wifi which otherwise would have been ~$13+tax per 24 hours. Firstly, the hotel is very convenient for Tampa airport. I found the complimentary shuttle service efficient. Secondly, it's a good location being attached to the International Plaza... More

The best customer service overall. Especially Philicia Darns, who made it a enjoyable stay and who coordinated with my husband to make it a rememberable birthday by planning activities with him. Everything was within walking distance for great food and shopping. And the room was one of the best that I have stayed in, clean and spacious. I wouldn't stay... More

Hotel and restaurant were very nice. The icing was the upscale mall and high end restaurant courtyard just outside the back entrance. Dozens of super good sidewalk and indoor restaurants. We ate at three of them and had the best food ever.

This hotel is not on the water or city center. It is however within 20 minutes of the beach and walking distance to Hugh end shopping. Bits a great choice to be near it all but you definitely need a car to enjoy the surroundings.
