We only spent one night here but it was a great stay and excellent value. We got a great deal at $87 a night and I would have paid double. The hotel is downtown and connected to an office building which makes for some interesting views. We could also see the bay off to the west. There's a Shula's Steakhouse... More

I know this hotel for many years since I attended many meeting there since 1990. It has changed names several times, but now is, i feel, the best. The service is very good, the rooms are clean, quiet and comfortable. Rates are reasonable. There is no real view, so dont expect one. (I agree with the review which mentions the... More

I arrived at Tampa airport for the first time in the evening after a long flight from Europe. The courtesy phone at the airport is on the ground floor on the side of an electronic poster for various hotels, between the escalator and the internal flight carousels. I mention this because it was not immediately obvious to me. The shuttle... More

I can't say enough about this great hotel. I'm actually shocked at some of the negative reviews. I would have liked a bathrobe in the room (makes me feel luxurious) but there are no other complaints. Although we could have paid $17 for valet parking, there was ample free parking conveniently located in the hotel garage. For nice hotels in... More

Stayed here for a week on a business trip. Got an interior room, meaning it looked out on a dimly lit courtyard to an attached office building. Really, I don't know about you but I like a little sunlight now and then and never being able to open my curtains without worrying about someone being in their office made me... More

The Good: walking distance to restaurants, mall is across the street, high-end steak house (Shulas) inside the hotel. Free shuttle service to/from airport. The Average: the rooms are "not" well appointed, but they are clean. The bathroom is very basic, not what you typically expect from the Intercontinental Brand. The Average: The staff seems somewhat distance and not overly friendly.... More

I have been a loyal customer at the Intercontinental in Tampa. I travel to Tampa frequently, and always stay at this hotel. I have always found it odd that they never say welcome back or give me any recognition for being a repeat customer, but so what. Well today, they told me that they overbooked and decided that I was... More

I stay here whenever the govt rate is available because the rooms are beautiful. Yet the Front Desk staff always provides more proof of poor training than customer service. You'll likely be okay checking in/out during normal business hours, but if you show up late or leave early, you are at the mercy of the hotel's obviously undertraining its newest... More
