“Wow! What a great place at a fantastic price! Unbelievable!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2011

We had a great meal last night at the Donatello and realized we were not able to drive back home (50 miles) without falling asleep at the wheel. I've learned not to try anymore as it will get you dead. We can't stay at anything that's not upper class (yes, I'm a prude) so we checked on availability at the InterContinental. AAA rate was $87!!! WHAT????? Yes, $87.

The place is what you expect for this chain: nice, safe, clean and upper class. I don't think you could go wrong here, so if it's near where you need to be then stay here!

One note: If you take anything out of the room refrigerator (even if you don't drink/eat it) the computer puts it on your tab. We moved some things out to put our leftovers in it and sure enough those items were itemized on our bill. The front desk girl laughed and said it happened all the time and promptly took them off.

Hotel was soooooo nice, checked in late and check in was a breeze, staff was very helpful and friendly. I would definately stay here on our next visit to Tampa. Close to everything we needed and walked to it. Parking was a little to be desired, no valet or bell to check in car, drove around to self park and almost didn't find a spot to park in the garage. Very pleased with the modern amenities, I am very picky about hotels and use this site and others to make my decision of where to stay. This is the first time I actually left a review, felt I had to since I use the site to make determination others may use the site as I do. THANKS INTERCONTINENTAL for a wonderful stay.

Stayed here while on business in Tampa -- very convenient location as this is close to te airport and located within a complex that has offices, restaurants, etc. Room was fine and clean but nothing special. My room (and many rooms it seems) faces offices across an indoor courtyeard -- it's close enough that you can clearly see people working in offices and they can see you, so I kept the curtains closed during the entire stay. Had dinner at Shula's Steakhouse and it was subpar. Steak was overcooked and without much flavor, while service was very very slow.

This was my second time staying at this hotel and it was just as nice as I'd remembered. The location is excellent, minutes from Busch Gardens, walking distance from shopping, and one of the finest steakhouses in Florida is right in the lobby (Shula's - but that's a whole 'nother 5-star review!).

Rooms have high-speed internet access, flat screen TVs, premium bathroom amenities and a bathroom scale. (Definitely don't want to use that while on vacation!) There is a lobby bar and for breakfast, you can do it quickly in the lobby as they have a counter for teas/coffees/pastries, or sit and enjoy your first meal of the day in the restaurant.

The rooftop pool is a nice feature and they do have a fitness center. I'd stay here again most definitely. Staff was super helpful in getting me in and out quickly, too.

Room Tip: Look at their website for internet deals

This is a nice, quiet hotel that is right across the street from the Westshore mall. We literally walked to the mall. The rooms were exactly how they appear on their website. Everything was nice and clean. The beds were comfortable. The only negative is the charge $5 per night for a microwave if you need one. We did not eat in the resteraunt. We will be back. We got an EXCELLENT price through a discount site.

We have stayed at this Interncontinental twice now. Both times we got a great deal off priceline for weekend stays. The rooms are nice and clean and its in a very good location to a variety of restaurants. It is a business hotel so do not expect a resort atmosphere. It works prefect for our weekend trips to Tampa. We will be back soon!
