Renaissance Tampa Hotel International Plaza Awarded
Four Diamonds from AAA/CAA

Tampa Fl, 5/31/06- The Renaissance Tampa Hotel International Plaza has officially joined the elite ranks of hotels recently earning four diamonds awarded by AAA/CAA.

This designation marks the Renaissance as Tampa’s newest – and only second – four diamond properties, making it a Tampa luxury hotel not to miss.

AAA tourism editors evaluated the Renaissance Tampa Hotel based on the following criteria:

• Overall quality
• Range of facilities
• Level of services offered by a property

Evaluations are conducted without prior notification and include thorough scrutiny of the exterior, grounds and public areas, room décor, ambiance and amenities, bathrooms, management, security, housekeeping and maintenance and guest services. Superior markings in these categories have made this a true Tampa luxury hotel.

“Customer service is the key in current ‘up market’ conditions. Today’s guests are very sophisticated and want more than the status quo when traveling.

As indicated by our AAA four diamond status, we intend to be the leader in this area and deliver an experience that represents what is best about Tampa,” said Jim Bartholomay, general manager of the Renaissance Tampa Hotel International Plaza.

The Renaissance Tampa Hotel International Plaza opened Aug. 11, 2004. The $45 million, 293-room property is the first Renaissance hotel in the Tampa/Hillsborough County area.

In addition to the stellar service, striking décor and acclaimed accommodations, this Tampa luxury hotel also features award-winning cuisine presented by Executive Chef Fabrizio Schenardi at PELAGIA Trattoria, a restaurant located adjacent to this Tampa luxury hotel that is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.
