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.

I stay at this Marriott property on a regular basis while working for a client in Tampa. Trust me, this is a really nice place to stay if you are doing business or are on a stopover near the Tampa Airport. The property is very new (or looks like it), it has a really nice executive lounge, plenty of places to stretch and relax, a very nice gym and a superb pool. The staff are of course highest quality Marriott people and I thank them for their weekly hospitality. There is easy access to International Plaza mall and adjoining restaurants, easy parking and an overall great experience. I did have some noise issues coming from the bars across the street so if you are sensitive to noise ask for a room that faces away from the restaurants/bars. Thumbs up Renaissance!

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces away from the restaurants.

Excellent service. Felicia at the front desk was exceptional. Very friendly, helpful, and attentive. The rooms are very nice and well kept. Excellent location if you are looking to shop. The only drawback was the in-room fee of $12.95 for internet access. This policy needs to reviewed.

This hotel is was a little hard to find at first. While I mostly blame my GPS for driving me around the mall, I think additional signage would be helpful. The staff was friendly and the hotel looked amazing. Very comfortable beds lead to a great nights sleep. Only complaint is the cost of wifi in the rooms. Most prices I've seen at other hotels is half as much as they were charging. The hotel connects to shopping, dining, and bars.

Good location for business. Take the shuttle from airport. Rooms very nice, excellent lobby. Concierge room small and crowded. Attached to a shopping area and can walk to several dining choices.
I prefer this hotel over the other airport area hotels.

it probably was not the hotel's fault, but the lovemaking of the couple next door at 4 a.m. was so loud it was almost comical. pounded on the wall to shut them up. my wife and i still laugh about it. parking garage is a bit rough and the exit onto a busy street can be a bit tricky. clean room.

We had a rewards certificate to kill and not a lot of time, so we just snuck away to Tampa. As the last time we stayed here, it was an excellent stay.

It's a great property. Well maintained. Clean. Everything one expects -- from good bed and good pillows to lots and lots of hot water. Staff was friendly and professional. Got in, got out, no issues.

Only downside of this hotel is that it is at a busy, upscale shopping mall, and parking can be an issue. At one point, we had to park several blocks away, though it did thin later. Nice thing about this, of course, is that there are a BUNCH of restaurants literally steps outside the door (not that there's a thing wrong with the in-house restaurant, of course!)
