“Great hotel”
Reviewed 11 June 2014 via mobile

Fantastic hotel.
Went for a conference, and stayed for three nights. Great staff, great rooms and great restaurant.
Next to a huge shopping mall, so easy to do shopping and lots of other alternatives to eat throughout the day and evening

Stayed May 2014, travelled on business

The Renaissance Hotel in Tampa is a beautiful facility in an excellent location. The staff is attentive and professional. The food (my wife and I were there for a conference) was very good. The rooms were spacious and well maintained. There was plenty of free parking on the grounds. The only negative in our three nights there was the charge for internet access. I simply do not understand why the more you pay for a room the more you are nickel and dimed. If we stay at a Fairfield by Marriott for $100 a night we get free internet access, complimentary coffee in the lobby and a buffet breakfast. When we spend twice as much all the extras disappear. That makes no sense to me.

Because of weather we were delayed in Tampa for the night. Rachael was at the front desk and was very welcoming and told us about our options for food etc. We arrived stressed from the airport and because of the kind hospitality of the staff, quickly relaxed, had a great meal and a great night sleep. Shuttle took us to the airport in the morning. Rachael gets five stars for customer service!

I actually discovered this hotel because it was our conference hotel. But it turned out to be a great experience. It's conveniently located next to the Tampa airport and a very nice shopping mall. There are a multitude of restaurants just outside the hotel door, next to the mall, just a two minute walk away. The mall is an upscale mall, perfect for tourist or conference shopping. The hotel rooms were very nice, upscale, clean, and comfortable. The workout gym was better than most hotels. The staff was friendly and very willing to please. I had an issue with my bill and they promptly took care of the issue. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

After a long flight we decided to stay one night in Tampa for an early departure the following day. Our choice was between the Marriott Hotel at the Airport or the Renaissance Hotel near a shopping mall. We decided to go for the latter and have not regretted our decision. This hotel is fantastic and just under two miles away from the Airport. We took the free shuttle to the hotel and were greeted by extremely friendly staff – happy to assist when needed. Check in went smoothly and we settled in quite quickly.

The hotel is convenient located near (read connected to) a large shopping mall. So we had some exploring to do. Just outside the mall there is a court yard with numerous [small] restaurants and with the sun shining it is always a delight to have dinner al-fresco.

The rooms are standard Marriott design and the beds are very comfortable – it was difficult to get out of them the following morning after a good night sleep. The hotel was very quiet.

We had a quick dip in the swimming pool and Jacuzzi. The air-conditioned gym was good with complimentary fruit and water. Unfortunately the business lounge is closed in the weekends so we had to have breakfast in the restaurant where a good choice of food was on offer.

I was quite impressed with the overall look [and location] of the hotel and the excellent service of the staff. It was certainly a hidden gem and worth considering as a possible venue for a large event that we organise each year. The lay-out of the ballroom is good and there are several possibilities to add to the experience (for example have breakfast, lunch or dinner served in the court yard).

This is certainly a hotel that should come highly recommended – 10/10.

Room Tip: We were staying on the highest floor which was great.

If you're every in the Tampa International Drive area and need a nice place to stay consider the Renaissance Tampa. Great hotel! I've stayed here several times. Clean rooms. The hotel is attached to the International Mall where there are plenty of restaurants. There is a very nice outdoor area. A good place for nightlife as well.
The hotel restaurant (can't remember the name) is very good for breakfast and lunch.
I had an issue with my reservation, which was truly all my fault, but the front desk staff member helped me and corrected it.

Room Tip: The parking lot is a bit small for the size of this hotel. The Valet parking takes up a lot of room...
