Tampa, Florida Hotels Celebrate Cinematic Magic During the IIFA Weekend

Guests of the Renaissance Tampa International Plaza Hotel Are Dazzled by the Best of Bollywood

TAMPA, FL -- (Marketwired) -- 04/11/14 -- The Academy Awards command so much attention in this country and abroad that it's hard to imagine anything could top it. And yet the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) routinely does. Celebrating the best Hindi cinematic performances, the IIFA weekend encompasses far more than a single night of awards. With screenings, forums, expos and, of course, plenty of singing and dancing, the IIFA weekend is an event not to be missed. And with this year's event booked in Tampa between April 23 and 26, guests are flocking to the one property that combines luxe accommodations with best available rates: the Renaissance Tampa International Plaza Hotel.

Visitors seeking Tampa's best hotel deals will find a lot to love at this property. Located in the upscale International Plaza, the hotel embraces a relaxed Mediterranean aesthetic within each of its 287 guest rooms and six suites. Renowned cuisine at its award winning restaurant, Pelagia Trattoria, a heated outdoor pool and guest rooms outfitted with mini-refrigerators, safes and sumptuous bedding all distinguish this property from other luxury hotels in Tampa, Florida.

Such gracious amenities also put guests in the right frame of mind to make the most of the IIFA weekend. The hotel is a few miles from Tampa Convention Center means that guests can easily get to the IIFA's forums and expos. And no one will want to miss the IIFA Master Class Panel with Kevin Spacey and Vidya Balan. The IIFA Awards, meanwhile, will be presented at the closely nearby Raymond James Stadium on April 26. Other events like the IIFA Stomp at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, a short film screening and performances, post-parties and more promise to keep visitors tapping their toes and singing along all weekend.

Of course, any traveler would be in the mood to celebrate after snagging the best available rates starting from $239 at a premier destination among hotels in Tampa, FL. In addition to putting guests close to all the locations of the IIFA weekend events, the hotel boasts easy access to the best shops, attractions and restaurants in Tampa, FL. And that combination of luxury, location and access deserves two thumbs up from any critic.
