Beautiful hotel but the beds are a disappointment.

Pros: The area from the airport was very convenient. It is in the International mall and very close to food and shopping. The location was excellent.
Cons: Get bigger beds.
Location: Location was great and many things to do nearby.
The hotel is beautiful and the staff are very accommodating. The rooms are very clean and up-to-date, but the beds were a big disappointment. They do not feel queen size but more like an extra large double. It was very uncomfortable for two adults to sleep in.

Handy to shopping & great dining.

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
My wife and I visit our children in Tampa each Christmas and, for the past four or five years have stayed at the Renaissance Hotel in the International Plaza. We have always enjoyed our stay. The staff is very accommodating but the welcoming experience has somewhat deteriorated in recent years. In lieu of the assorted olives or other special snacks that had been available in the lobby, guests are now offered to draw from a jug of water with a few fruit slices floating therein. We enjoy the restaurant though service is somewhat spotty. Never bad... but not always great. My wife has a great time shopping in the mall while I am happy to mostly remain in our room and relax.

Disabled Parking

I am a business traveler that has stayed at this hotel a couple of times a month over the last year or so. Parking has always been an issue for disabled customers at this hotel. The closes parking lot to the front lobby is directly in front of the lobby and has never offered handicap parking spaces and has recently been closed to hotel customers and is used for vailey parking ONLY. The vailey service is run by young athletic men you would have no problem retreaving car from other hotel parking locations. When I voiced by concerns during my check-in the clerk behing the counter just made excuses and showed little concern for repeate customers or Marriott Eliett members.

Vacation

Enjoyed the stay--everything was good, service, room and food. Loved the location of the hotel. My only gripe is that the parking was scarce at times; but apart from that, would highly recommend the hotel.

Girls night out

My two friends and I were celebrating a friend’s birthday and I had booked a room at the Renaissance Tampa Hotel as a surprise. Although it was her birthday, my friends and I purchased the romance package because she has not had luck in relationships lately. She was greeted with roses, chocolate and champagne. The room was also gorgeous and really impressed us. If that wasn't enough, the Pelagia Trattoria, a restaurant located inside the hotel was absolutely amazing. I ordered the grilled Ahi tuna and almost melted, I am not sure what everyone else had because I was so into my dish. We were so full by the end of the meal; we did not even want birthday cake. That was later saved for at night when we got to share the champagne and just relax. The next morning when we woke up we treated her to a spa day, which was amazing, and really convenient because we could walk to it from the hotel. I am usually a workaholic but this hotel really gave me a chance to bond with my friend on her birthday. I cannot wait to go back for another girl's night out!

Nice but overpriced

Best thing about the hotel is the location which is why they are charging these outrageous prices. The hotel is right next to all the best restaurants so its in a great spot. The so called business room is small and cramped, the computer was broken the whole time I was there. Pool was absolutely disgusting, the staff told me "business people dont usually use the pool". \nNice excuse. Rooms were clean and I'd stay again but not for these prices. One of the receptionists was the rudest woman i'd ever seen however the other two were wonderful. The gym although small was new and very clean, the pool was filled with bugs, a huge turnoff for anyone on business with a family. Whether you use the pool or not, any hotel should spend more money on that because not all families want to drive to the beach every day, the pool is ridiculously small. Hotel staff said the computer would also be fixed however after 3 days it wasn't. \nThe staff that handles the bags, and the shuttles are a great bunch of guys. As I stated earlier, the hotel knows its in the best location so they can charge $* a night however I don't think I'll be going back for this price. I don't mind paying for a nice hotel, but Im not going to help them actually pay for it. Hope this helps
