This is a beautiful hotel that is covenient to the airport, shopping, downtown and the Westshore Business area in Tampa. The location quite frankly is tough to beat and this will be my "go to" hotel in Tampa. It is located adjacent to the International Plaza Shopping Mall and all the restaurants and bars are located just steps from the hotel. My room was very nice and the bedding fantastic. As a Platinum Member with Marriott I have stayed in numerous Renaissance Hotels and this hotel is tight up there in quality and service. The Executive Lounge is nice and spacious.I will be staying here on all future trips to Tampa.
