“Excellent property”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Absolutely loved my most recent stay here. Now stayed four times. Always a very friendly concierge and front desk staff. Lovely bright rooms with very comfortable beds. Perfectly located for the International Mall with many choices of great restaurants and bars.

Stay here about once per year for a conference. Hotel is always immaculate, staff helpful and friendly, facilities up to date, and location is perfect. It is close to Tampa International Airport, upscale International Mall is adjacent, and near many excellent restaurants. Only one issue, the person in the concierge lounge on Thursday night was out of her element. Did nothing to keep food area stocked or clean, was overwhelmed by just a few people and not personable. The morning hostess was just the opposite. I am certain that will be corrected, and they will provide the necessary training. We look forward to staying again.

This is a great hotel for a meeting as it is pseudo-attached to the International Plaza, a high-end mall with lots of great shops and eateries. The hotel is beautifully decorated and very pleasant. The rooms are quite nicely appointed, including frig. The walls of the rooms are quite thin...only complaint! You could almost understand conversations in adjacent rooms. Fortunately, our floor was fairly considerate and early to bed. My room overlooked the courtyard...ok view, quiet.The room service wasn't up to the restaurant standards, however. The Pellagio is very good, both for breakfast and dinner. The front desk did a poor job of explaining the amenities as I didn't discover the Starbucks until the last day...I had been going into the mall for my coffee (in room coffee was hideous). Beds were great, as were pillows and Aveda products. Meeting rooms were good, just cold, as they always are....Did not hear a lot of airport noise as some report. Did not get to go to club lounge.

Room Tip: The room over courtyard didn't have much airport noise.

I have stayed at the Renaissance for the last 26 weeks for business. Besides the great location, the staff in the concierge lounge is too-notch. Every morning, Elaine ensures that I have a great experience in the lounge. She is a large part of the reason why I continue to stay at the Renaissance.

We had a very very nice welcome from Amy.
The hotel has a very Spanish feel about it having stayed in the Marriott Marbella on numerous occasions.
A nice selection in the club level lounge for breakfast, unlike European lounges the drinks are limited to non alcoholic, we did know this prior to arrival.
We also knew that wi-fi is limited to the lobby unless you are willing to pay, which as many have mentioned.
You are adjacent to the mall and a wide variety of bars and restaurants.
A very enjoyable stay and we would return next time we are in Tampa.

Room Tip: Club level rooms are on high floors with lovely views of the airport.

We just stayed here for our 44Th wedding anniversary. As a Marriott Gold elite, I always hope for a complimentary upgrade. These people REALLY know how to treat their elite guest. As a anniversary gift we were upgraded to a Beautiful suite.
We had a lovely dinner in the hotel restaurant, with some wine. My husband worked out in the gym, the next morning, and we shopped in the mall. Next day we boarded out train to Hollywood Florida. Perfect stay. Large clean rooms wonderful staff. Great food

Room Tip: Rooms on upper floors facing courtyard, usually quieter. However hotel is well built, most street no...

Renaissance is a solid choice for Tampa area travelers. Less than 10 minutes from the Tampa airport, walking distance to great restaurants and shopping. Rooms were great. Really liked everything about it except for two things - please provide free water and wi-fi, it is 2014, not 1974.
