The Renaissance is connected to the International Plaza, a relatively upscale shopping mall with plenty of shops and several very fine restaurants. I went with my wife and two teenagers--our 2 nights there we ate at Cheesecake Factory and California Pizza Kitchen (lots more than just pizza)-both very nice. The hotel room was larger than average, and had a view of the airport--sound insulation was perfect--we could see planes taking off but couldn't hear a thing. Beds were comfy, A/C very good and quiet, big bathroom with nice tub and shower (toilet that was also very quiet--nice for the middle of the night!). We drove to the zoo (15 minutes) and Busch Gardens (also 15 minutes)--very convenient.
The hotel restaurant was also very nice, and the atmosphere was quiet and refined, but not snooty. This would be a great place for families, couples (the courtyard and restaurants looked very romantic, but with the kids we didn't do much about that)--definitely a great place to stay for a weekend getaway.
