Renaissance Tampa International Plaza Hotel Puts Regular Rates on Summer Vacation

Tampa Hotel Near Westshore Introduces Major Discounts on Summertime Stays

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwired - Jun 21, 2013) -  The term "summer vacation" typically evokes a universal reaction, conjuring images of sun, sand and endless sparkling sea. And while some may think the era of summer vacations ends with diplomas and jobs, the Renaissance Tampa International Plaza Hotel takes a different position. As part of its Suntastic Savings program, the hotel is currently offering a 25% discount off of its best summer rates (based on a stay of two nights or longer) and, in the process, proves that summer vacations are indeed for everyone.

Of course, considering the hotel's location near Tampa's thriving Westshore neighborhood and within the upscale International Plaza shopping center, guests may want to extend their vacations a little longer than two nights. Offering immediate access to the Plaza's more than 200 specialty shops, restaurants and department stores, the Mediterranean-inspired hotel provides convenient, amenity-driven lodging in the heart of Florida. And its close proximity to downtown, those quintessential Florida beaches and the Tampa International Airport only enhances its appeal.

The Renaissance Tampa International Plaza Hotel is also enviably situated near attractions like Busch Gardens and The Florida Aquarium. Its accommodations are so centrally located, in fact, that there's no shortage of easily accessible things to see and do: Zoos, gardens and museums are all nearby.

After a day of sightseeing, guests can bed down in the plush comfort of one of the hotel's 287 rooms or six suites. Splashes of ruby, blue, butter yellow and lime green artfully ebb and flow throughout each room, evoking the feel of a Spanish villa. The Mediterranean theme extends to public spaces like La Fuente Courtyard, where a magnificent fountain and lush palm trees create a sumptuous oasis within the hotel.

Equally sumptuous are the dining options. The open-air kitchen of Pelagia Trattoria serves up modern Italian fare by the award-winning Executive Chef Brett Gardiner. Gabriella's in the lobby, meanwhile, combines a casually cool setting with light fare.

With summer already underway, now is the time to book a Suntastic vacation. Guests must reserve a room by July 21st in order to take advantage of the promotion. Reservations may be made for any weekend through September 30, 2013. Additional information is available at
