I stayed at the Renaissance Tampa last night for the first time, traveling for business. The service was great - from check-in to room service, to dining in the hotel for breakfast. The room was beautiful, with all the right amenities, including those little things that make a hotel room special (good product, great towels, liquid coffee creamer.) The bed...

How do you review a perfection? I can't begin to thank the staff at the Renaissance Tampa International Plaza for a most wonderful experience! We are repeat visitors and I would not consider staying anywhere else when visiting Tampa. We were in Tampa to attend the National Championship game at Raymond James Stadium, home of the Bucs.

The Renaissance brand is known for not adhering to a cookie-cutter look, save for their ubiquitous bedspreads. This hotel has a shuttle that operates ever half hour to the airport. Unlike some other Marriott properties, you don't need to reserve it ahead of time. There are always a couple of valets at the curb. We didn't notice any interruption in...

This hotel has amazing service, super comfortable beds, and is incredibly well kept. It is within walking distance to the stadium for our family, ages 10-35. The restaurant is ok for breakfast, but I preferred walking over to Starbucks in the mall. We will be back to this hotel for sure.

This hotel is first class. From the service we received at check in until the time we left the hotel at 5:30am to go catch our flight, the service was top notch. We are normally not this high maintenance but this time we were! I used the app to check in and said we'd be there around 2:00pm, well in...

The hotel was beautiful and clean - and the staff was friendly and helpful. The gym had plenty of equipment so there was no wait for a treadmill, elliptical or anything else. Pool is a good length for swimming laps too.

The concierge lounge staff was very informative about things to do in the area and the food was a step above other hotel lounge offerings. Elaine was there to greet me each evening with a smile and a story to share. Much appreciated when traveling from hotel to hotel.
