“Excellent Location!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

The location is fantastic as it is adjacent to the mall and very easy to get to. Parking was even free. The room was very quiet even though it had a connecting door. There was a large flat screen tv and aveda products in the bathroom.

Room Tip: We were on the 6th floor odd number room, view of the mall. Even side must face pool. The pool was...

This hotel was absolutely gorgeous! But even more important was the fact that the service was outstanding! Please excuse all the exclamation points but I am shouting this review because its not that often that I get to give any hotel a total 5! My husband and I are enjoying our military retirement by traveling and doing fun things with our kids and basically making up for a lot of lost time, and in our travels we try to save where we can and we ended up staying here last night for free with our Rewards points. And even though we stayed for free with enough points for a standard room, they still upgraded us to a suite. It was the space we needed! My only regret is that we only could stay one night. But thats ok, because we are planning our next vacation as we speak and we WILL be staying here again. Whether we have a suite, or a room, it doesnt matter because the service and the friendliness of the staff made all the difference in the world. A special thank you to John for making our stay the best hotel stay we've had this summer!

Booked in here as a last minute resort when lovely British Aiways delayed our flight back to the UK by a day. The hotel is gorgeous, friendly staff, clean rooms, fantastic pool & lobby area & the best part is that it's literally steps away from a very nice shopping centre and restaurant area. Would have happily stayed for longer & would definitely return.

Just had a small company meeting at this hotel, as well as several other business stays here in the past six weeks. The hotel is very attractive and its locale close to good restaurants and an outstanding mall is wonderful. But the service at the hotel puts it head and shoulders above any other hotel I have stayed at in Florida. From the banquet staff working a small meeting to the bartender who remembers what you ordered two weeks ago to to the front desk who has had to email me several itemized receipts, everyone is there to make the guest feel welcome and taken care of. This hotel should do staff training for every hotel that works with a business clientele. I hope whoever is managing staff training and execution sees this and knows that they and their staff are appreciated.

I am a dancer with Dream Makers Dance, and we got to partake in the Outback Bowl 2012 Tour with Just For Kix. We stayed at the Renaissance Hotel International Plaza for a week in December. The hotel was very nice, and had great service. Beautiful pool, and was attached to the International Plaza. This was an awesome mall with a great food court including places such as Chic-Fil-A, a pizza place, Chinese food, and a frozen yogurt place. I really enjoyed my stay here and would definitely stay there again!

Took a group there for a meeting. Good meeting facilities and events all handled well as planned. Excellent job with customer service! Rooms showing some wear but well maintained. One negative was finding shampoo and body wash not changed from prior guest.

Room Tip: Get the upgrade if you can. Marriott rewards a must!
