Got a decent price through Priceline. First off the room was small, moldy & had a half view windwo of the top of the roof. Asked to change rooms. Prior to that my luggage was lost. Had to call bellservices 3 times until someone asked me to describe my luggage ? Room service was overpriced & cold. Food tasted cold,... More

I stayed at the Intercontinental in Tampa recently, and was amazed by the service, the ambience, and the quality of the guest rooms. They greeted me by name when I arrived on the shuttle and checked me in quickly, giving me exactly the information I needed. The fitness center is open 24 hours and there's an outdoor pool on the...

Check in was bad, were there an hour early with friends, both of us had the presidential suites. Check in person not very personable, or friendly. Presidential room was very nice and spacious, but you cannot sleep at night due to extreme noise from the elevators. My friends had the same problem. We had prepaid two nights, but went to... More

I have stayed at this hotel before but I will not stay again. Very disappointed with the quality of the room. The room was so small that you could barely move around the tiny little bed they provided. I asked to be moved but the hotel overbooked. The room was located next to the loud ice machine. In addition, I... More

We stayed here for 2 nights ( one at each end of our vacation) . The location was great opposite the shopping area and nice resteraunt and a short ride into downtown Tampa. The rooms and beds were amongst the best I have stayed in very comfortable. The taxi/shuttle to the airport was great and the driver even took us... More

I've stayed here once every three years for at least the last 15 years - ever since it used to be a Wyndham many years ago. Spending 30-40 nights a year in hotel rooms, I can say that this hotel is one of the best I've ever stayed in. I paid $129/night here, and the room is just as good... More

Stayed here on business with colleagues for two nights. This hotel is business-friendly, and has many positives. I stayed on the top floor, and when I opened the blinds, was happily surprised that it was floor-to-ceiling windows. For those afraid of heights, this would not be a good view. For me - I loved it! I could see the bay(?)... More

Hotel Intercontinental was disappointing. I attended a two and a half day professional conference over a weekend in January. The room was lovely and the bed very comfortable. The hotel is supposed to be non-smoking but you could smell the stale cigarette fumes coming up from the carpet...it was very humid! I think there was some sort of mold in... More

I ended up booking the Intercontinental through Hotwire for an excellent price - about $80/night for a 4 star. Other sites were listing the hotel at $150+/night. I was able to identify the hotel through betterbidding.com and tripadvisor had pretty good reviews so I went ahead with it. . Based on the reviews I was little concerned about the elevator... More
