We stayed at the hotel prior to taking a cruise to Barcelona, Spain. Since we arrived on Easter Sunday the stores at the mall were closed but restaurants were open. It is a good location for shopping and dining in Tampa. I am Platinum Elite Marriott guest, so we had access to the lounge. HOWEVER! I did not get credit...

This is a very convenient hotel for an overnight stay prior to a flight out of Tampa. We winter in Sarasota. With limited flights out of SRQ we rent a car and drop it off at TPA. Just exit on N Lois (exit 40A) off I275. Remember to fill up at the first gas station as it is the only...

This is by far the best hotel. Great location, the mall is literally next door, and lots of restaurants. The hotel is clean, the only thing i didnt like was there was hair on a few pillows the housekeepers should do bed checks after cleaning those rooms. The front desk workers are very pleasant, the pool and hot tub is...

Shuttle service from the airport to the hotel was there within about 10 minutes. As we could not prebook for the day we were leaving, went down...

The hotel was beautiful but that was it. When I booked the room I booked a double. They told me that they were out of doubles so I had to take a king bed for my husband, 14 year old daughter, 6 year old daughter and myself. I asked for a refund but they told me that I wouldn't be...

I went o dinner and drinks on Saturday and decided to hang out at bar and have dinner. Food was great- Burrata, soup (Amazing!) burger and Grouper, we all loved the food. Cathy our bartender was so much fun and Cindy her partner was also Uber cool. Fun, but low key evening.

If yo u are considering a stay at the airport hotel in Tampa, scratch that idea and choose the Renaissance instead. Nearly at the airport (1 mile away) it is a much better choice. It is within walking distance of over a dozen nice restaurants and connected to a fancy retail shopping mall. The rooms are very comfortable and furnished...
