The best customer service overall. Especially Philicia Darns, who made it a enjoyable stay and who coordinated with my husband to make it a rememberable birthday by planning activities with him. Everything was within walking distance for great food and shopping. And the room was one of the best that I have stayed in, clean and spacious. I wouldn't stay anywhere else when I return back to Tampa!

Hotel and restaurant were very nice. The icing was the upscale mall and high end restaurant courtyard just outside the back entrance. Dozens of super good sidewalk and indoor restaurants. We ate at three of them and had the best food ever.

My husband is attending a conference at the hotel and I tagged along to get out of Michigan's cold. I didn't realize what a wonderful time I would have at the hotel. The staff, from the valet service to the guest relations have been so helpful. They have recommended great restaurants, made reservations, given directions, and just been all around good representatives of the hotel. The room was very nice (even to the new fridge that arrived today to keep my water cold). Again, it is the staff that makes a business a success and you are successful.

This hotel is not on the water or city center. It is however within 20 minutes of the beach and walking distance to Hugh end shopping. Bits a great choice to be near it all but you definitely need a car to enjoy the surroundings.

I attended business conference at the Renaissance this week. This was the 2nd time our group had stayed at this hotel. It was as pleasant this time as it was the previous time. Theresa at the front desk was most helpful several times during our stay. The conference food was very good as was the waitstaff at the events. I would recommend this hotel for your conference/

This hotel is not only close to the airport but also on mall property. The International Plaza mall as a wonderful area called Bay Street that is filled with restaurants and night club/bars. The restaurant on property was fairly prices and the hotel grounds in general is what you would expect of a Renaissance hotel. The view of the airport was nice yet you don't have and issue with airline noise. This property also has a large ballroom that proved to be nice for large meetings.
