This hotel is beautiful and conveniently located near the airport, and walking distance to several good restaurants and the mall. The room was consistently clean and staff was very pleasant. Room service was great and efficient. Overall, I enjoyed my little stay at this hotel.

I was only there one night so I didn't have a lot of time to use all of the amenities, but the pool looked refreshing. I always love it when hotels provide fruit infused water in the lobby. The room decor was beautifully done. It was very plush and modern. The 55 inch TV was generous for the room size....

We were leaving on a cruise out of Tampa. We decided to stay here instead of near the port. Best decision!! This hotel was wonderful. The service was super friendly and efficient. Hotel clean. Our room was clean, spacious and peaceful. The location was fantastic right next door to a huge mall. Also lot of shops and restaurants in surrounding...

I have to start by saying that Oxide doesn't get this particular Marriott brand. I actually prefer Springhill or even Fairfield, which both include in-room wifi and breakfast, which Renaissance does not. However, this Renaissance is attractive and clean. I like the Arveda bath products and the towels. There's a mall with restaurants and lots of stores steps away. The...

My husband and I booked a lovely getaway with plans to meet at the airport and enjoy our first night in this amazing hotel. Fabulous amenities, great room, and terrific staff. The only problem: I was stranded in Atlanta due to a cancelled flight. Had to land in Orlando the next day and so upset we were missed our special...

Amazingly quiet for being adjacent to the busy Tampa airport. Love the redo of the rooms, much more attractive and the huge TV is awesome. The amenities are perfect, but I would like the option to leave the fan on while I sleep instead of it cycling on and off during the night. Surprisingly, a very heavy comforter is the...

My room was super comfortable - 60" TV, high thread-count sheets (nicer than at my house), and a very recently renovated bathroom (i.e. no mold on grout or caulk seams). The room was big, comfortable, quiet and dark - exactly what I need in an airport hotel. The room rate wasn't a give-away (about $195/night), but with the room amenities...

We stayed here the last night of our tour and we arrived early but they were ready for all 30 of us. The rooms were large and lovely, the food in the restaurant was delicious and the staff were quite accommodating to our needs. Great place

I really wanted to love this property - the reservation process was smooth and I was able to get a reasonable rate. When I arrived, there was one overwrought person working the desk and three guests waiting, one with a complicated issue. I would have expected that a property this size would have more than one staff member available to...
