I have stayed at this hotel twice for girls' weekends and haven't been dissapointed. The rooms are roomy and well appointed like most Renaissance properties. The proximity to International Plaza is fantastic for shopping and for the nightlife on Bay Street (the International Plaza "street" with all the bars and restaurants).
The staff was outgoing and friendly and was prompt with any requests (including our request for a wine bottle opener and wine glasses).
The hotel bar was nice, bartender very friendly and offered wine recommendations. Food was good and excellent appetizers for sharing.
Hotel is very close to airport as well as many shops and all of the high end chains in Tampa.
Valet is quick and friendly.
Would always recommend this to friends and family.
