This is one of the best IHG hotels we've ever stayed in (including Intercontinentals). The staff were friendly, the room was spacious and overlooked the water. The pool was in a nice setting. The gym is well equipped. There is even a good restaurant next door. The location is perfect for exploring the Tampa area with easy access to Busch... More

A local wedding guest--in need of R&R--I had a serene, restful stay. Enjoyed this wonderfully-located, efficient hotel, with a big pool (I enjoy this chain). On the water, with generous daily breakfasts and day-long coffee and teas. The Bahama Breeze bar & restaurant is steps away. Room was clean & quiet (4th floor). Front desk staff very helpful (although when... More

Stayed here for 3 nights on a recent trip to Florida's gulf coast. Reception on arrival was first class and room on 4th floor overlooking the bay was spacious and well maintained. Buffet breakfast was good with an excellent selection. Great location for exploring Tampa and surrounding area. Had a lively couple of nights next door at Bahama Breeze. Only... More

I wanted to be close to airport and have a good free breakfast. I was happy with both. We used a lot to towels and the staff always provided more. We used the microwave and fridge in the room.

If you like a nice view, I highly recommend this Holiday Inn Express if you are able to get a room on the water (not the parking lot) side of the hotel at a competitive price. Also double check to be sure your room has a nice view (a few are obstructed). The window is small, but you get a... More
