“Awesome location. Nice hotel.”
Reviewed May 4, 2013 via mobile

This hotel is beautiful. Staff was very nice. It's located right next to an outdoor bar/dining area that was great at night. There is also a mall on the other side of the courtyard. Overall, i was very impressed with this hotel.

This is a excellent, clean, well run hotel and ideal if you are stopping off in Tampa on business. It's close to the airport but still on a main route into Tampa. The hotel is located close to an up market shopping mall so and there are a large number of restaurants between the mall and the hotel. Despite being close to the airport the hotel is very quiet so no problem sleeping. The hotel has a small gym and a small out door pool but they are sufficient if you are only staying a day or two. Not sure if this hotel would suit a family but for the single traveler or couple it's worth considering.

Great hotel location. It is within 1 mile if Moffitt Cancer Center so I don't have to drive 30 minutes to lifetime facility. Also very close to wonderful shopping and restaurants. I have only had breakfast but it was fine. Staff friendly and clean rooms. Airport is 5 min away but doesn't sound noisy. My favorite hotel in Tampa. Usually conferences being held here

My wife and I have stayed in 5 star hotels around the world and none of them have yet to match the overall excellence of the Renaissance Tampa at International Mall! We are "locals" who travel across the bridge from Clearwater 8-10 times a year just to experience a night at the Renaissance. Hotel staff always go above and beyond in any possible to make our stay one to remember! John, the Concierge is AMAZING! He is like your own personal attendant. I do not believe he has ever uttered the word "no". Everything about the Renaissance Tampa is a 10! In over 5 years of being a frequent customer, we have never had a bad experience. The rooms are immaculate, service incredible, and the city views are amazing. Not to mention, the International mall steps away and our favorite restaurant in Tampa the Brio. The only drawback is the letdown when we have to stay at other hotels on our travels. Tom and Annette.

Co-located with an up scale shopping mall, this Renaissance manages to get it right. It has the feel of a boutique hotel, while offering the amenities of a larger property. The meal quality and service for larger events is outstanding. If you want to dine off the property the mall offers a number of choices. The staff are well trained and helpful.

I travel for business frequently and this is my hotel of choice in the Tampa area. It is a beautiful hotel styled in old Cuban style architecture. The decorative tiles and iron doors are a nice touch. The staff are always very happy and helpful.

The issue I have are the rates can be high for last minute travel. I find however if I am able to plan my travel a couple of months in advance then the rates sometimes are feasible for business travel.

We stayed here for a 2 day insurance conference in early 2013. The hotel itself is very close to the Tamp airport and does have a free shuttle (TIP you have to call to get the shuttle to come).

The hotel itself is clean, has decent dining options, free parking, free wifi, room service, clean rooms and modern facilities. The hotel is smack in the middle of a mall complex, which at first glance is not obvious how to navigate. If you exit the hotel through the main entrance turn right, away from the parking and you will see a large set of steps heading up. At the top is a huge outdoor shopping/dining complex with 10+ bars, pubs and restaurants. Also part of this complex is a large shopping mall with all the common designer brands.

If you are doing business in central Tampa this is a good spot. The lack of a pool and distance from the beach would keep me from coming here for vacation.
