The Renaissance Tampa is the perfect hotel for the busy, business traveler. Nestled in the heart of the Westshore business district, these luxurious accommodations are conveniently located just a few minutes away from downtown, the beach and the Tampa International Airport.

The Renaissance Hotel has romance pumping through its veins. It transports you to a chic villa in the heart of the Mediterranean. In bold reds and yellows, this hotel is decorated with funky patterns, cast iron decorations, hand painted tiles and blown glass. It really comes together to create an elegant, romantic atmosphere. In the La Fuente Courtyard, guests can sit back under the stars and unwind to the sound of water trickling out of the beautiful stone and tile fountain. Guests should also take advantage of the hotel’s award-winning restaurant, Pelagia Trattoria, which serves modern, Italian cuisine. Another perk is that it is located at the International plaza, which is full of high-end shopping, like Coach, Gucci and Louis Vuitton. There’s also great restaurants nearby, including The Capital Grille and The Cheesecake Factory.

The story goes like this: Gabriella’s father owned a cigar shop in historic Ybor City. When he died, Gabriella wanted to design the perfect cigar to honor his memory. She traveled to Spain for just the right label design and met a young man named Sergio. The couple fell in love instantly, got married and honeymooned on Costa del Sol and Riviera del Sol before returning to Tampa with a stellar cigar recipe and the layout for their new family home. It was the same authentic Spanish design that eventually informed Gabriella’s cafe, which is the heart of the lavish and ornate Renaissance Tampa hotel – an eight-year-old jewel in the crown of International Plaza, which also includes a mall, a Cheesecake Factory and a Capital Grille. According to the staff, Renaissance Hotels prefer to build their locations in tandem with the culture and flare of the neighborhoods in the surrounding region. This one succeeds with its Spanish/Cuban castle-meets-Salvador Dali museum décor. All 293 rooms offer comfy beds amidst a swirl of welcoming greens, blues and tans. In addition, the Renaissance Tampa offers a fitness center with an arsenal of treadmills and weights. Best of all, there’s an award-winning restaurant attached for those rare moments when cigars, coffee and snacks at Gabriella’s will no longer suffice. Pelagia Trattoria, which literally means “from the sea” in Italian, cooks modern Mediterranean fare with a precise focus on seafood. Their fresh ingredients are either locally sourced out of Winter Park or grown onsite in the perimeter garden supervised an ambitious chef who knows what a competitive restaurant district he’s working in.
