“Beautiful hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

I stayed 1 night at this hotel to drop my nephew back to his university and it is beautiful. Therese Shabe who works at the front desk was very helpful and let us know of the local restaurants and things to do in the area. We walk the wrong way to the elevator and she came out and assisted to the right way. Plan to stay next time at this hotel for my nephews graduation.

The Renaissance is a very nice hotel. It is right next door to the International Mall and close to the airport. They have a small section of self-parking spots, all of which are free. They also have valet parking.
The lobby and hallways are very spacious well kept. The guestrooms don't disappoint. They offer just the right amount of space. The bathroom is very nice with marble counter tops, It has Aveda toiletries, great water pressure in the shower. They even have a night light under the counter to save you from running in to things in the middle of the night.
The only negative about the hotel was that they did not have a safe in the room, but had one at the front desk.
I would diffidently stay here again!

Hotel close to airport, major shopping and restaurants and in a safe location. I felt safe walking around the area. Good for a business trip and even made a quick day trip to Clearwater Beach. Very nice, clean room and comfortable bed. Good service at the bar and restaurant.

The subject says it all, but if you require further elaboration continue to read:
- the staff was AMAZING, Front Desk, Valet, Shuttle drivers and the amazing concierge John who was able to find me a tennis court close by for a nice workout daily, thanks John
- the location is perfect, I was able to walk to the directly connected mall, and loads of close by eateries.
- A great vacation!!!!

My wife and I stayed here this past weekend. Perfect get-away location for International Mall shopping, restaurants and quick access to TIA and South Tampa. We would stay here again! Friendly staff and clean rooms. Super convenient to Mall entrance and The Pub.

Room Tip: We booked top floor. 8th floor and found it to be very quiet.
