A hotel is just a building until you step inside to experience its individual personality. At Renaissance Tampa International Plaza Hotel, operating under the Marriott umbrella, guests experience a beautiful hotel located just steps from dining, entertainment and more that combine to create a distinctive identity for this AAA Four Diamond-rated property.
The hotel was originally designed to resemble a “costa del sol” mansion featuring Mediterranean influences in the architecture, furnishings and colors. The building wraps around a courtyard highlighted by a large fountain surrounded by outdoor seating. But after 11 years, General Manager Jim Bartholomay, in partnership with Ashford Hospitality Prime, decided it was time for a fresh look that would update and upgrade the hotel. The colors are no longer “in your face,” but greyer tones incorporated throughout the interior paint and décor to give guests a more relaxed feel.
