“Excellent Hotel For Business Trip”
Reviewed 15 June 2012 via mobile

I have stayed at the Renaissance on multiple occasions. It is a nice hotel in a good location; it is next to a major shopping center, which provides many dining options within very short walking distance. The staff has been unfailingly helpful and friendly, and the restaurant is very good.

Stayed here for business on June 10th. Check in was a breeze and Steve took great care of me. He was attentive and very personable, great guy. They are lucky to have him behind the check in counter. Room was clean, spacious and had a great view of the beautiful courtyard. Everything was perfect and look forward to my stay on the 14th. Thanks agIn Steve.

Spent 2 days attending business event - the location is excellent! It's close to the airport, a few steps away from the mall & amazing restaurants. The hotel is spotless, beautifully decorated, smooth music playing creating a warm inviting atmosphere. Rooms are gorgeous - beds are super soft & so comfy, large TV, good in-room coffee & bath ammenities. Highly recommend this hotel if you are planning a trip to Tampa!

We recently spent two days at this hotel. Not only is it conveniently located next to Tampa's International Shopping Plaza, but it also close to other shopping areas, restaurants and Tampa's Raymond James Stadium. The staff, from the reception desk to the housecleaning department, all went out of their way to be welcoming and helpful. After mentioning in passing that it was my husband's birthday at check in, staff sent a delicious a gourmet dessert and a lovely birthday note to our room. The room itself was lovely and very comfortable with a view of the courtyard. Breakfast was included. We were able to pick anything from the restaurant's large, comprehensive menu. Although our first day there was rainy we were albe to go into the large International Plaza from the hotel without getting wet. The Plaza not only includes numerous "upscale " stores but also a variety of restaurants. We will definitely return to this hotel!

Room Tip: Our room on the third floor overlooked a quiet courtyard and was very quiet.

We stayed in a standard room for one night in March of 2012. The room was a good size, was clean, and is nicely decorated. One detail that I absolutely loved about the bathroom is that the shower curtain rod is curved outward, so the shower curtain never touchs you while you are in the shower. We ate lunch in the restaurant - the food was delicious and the waitress who waited on us was outstanding.

I stayed here one night before flying out of Tampa International - which is only a couple miles away. The hotel is directly adjacent to the International Plaza Mall and many restraunts and bars. Probably not my first choice for location characteristics - but I think a lot of people, especially tourists would enjoy it. The hotel interior has an Italian design throughout which makes it standout from other hotels. I ate at the hotel bar which was really good, plus they had a guy singing and playing guitar making a nice ambiance. The exercise room was well equpped, clean and all in good shape. Staff - as at all Marriott chain hotels - were professional and friendly. Overall - I'd highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Being a Gold (or higher) Marriott Rewards member gets you free internet and access to the concierge...

We stayed here for one night after arriving at Tampa airport before embarking on a cruise the following day. There was a complementary shuttle bus from the airport to the hotel, a journey time of 5 minutes. The driver was very friendly. Check in was quick and easy and we had a very nice room overlooking the swimming pool on the fifth floor with two queen beds. The TV was a HUGE HD flatscreen. The pool was warm and good for a refreshing post flight swim. The great thing about this hotel is that it is attached to the International Mall so it is very handy for walking to a restaurant. We ate at the Cheesecake Factory. The beds in the hotel were very comfortable and a good nights sleep was had. Only one problem - we recieved a wake up call we hadn't requested at 6am! That annoyed us a little, but we managed to fall back to sleep. Our room rate had breakfast included and it was very good. There was an extensive hot and cold buffet and eggs and pancakes were freshly cooked. Tea, coffee, juice and soft drinks were all included. All in all a great hotel which is handy for the airport and seaport. A taxi from the hotel to the cruise terminal was very reasonable.
