“Great Location/Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

First time staying at this location (for work), and I liked it very much. They had everything that you would need in the lobby (coffee shop, Shula's, gift shop, etc.). Plus, it was nice to have Starbucks and Panera in walking distance too. The gym is top-notch here, I used it every night I was there. Rooms were quite comfortable, I would stay here again for certain.

I have to start by saying that I love the InterContinental Hotel Brand and stay with them often when I travel. Each of their hotels are unique but they all have wonderful service, amenities, beautiful rooms and are fantastically clean. I have family in the area and stay here often but have finally chosen to share with the trip advisor community why we continue to return. You can't really get a much better deal at an upscale hotel in the Tampa area. This hotel features a beautiful sun drenched rooftop pool, large rooms, a great restaurant bar, easy to access PC's in their business center and a very convenient location to many things including the airport and being right across from a great shopping mall. This hotel is upgraded frequently and the beds are VERY comfortable. The only downside is the air-conditioning in the rooms is hard to control sometimes and I get chilly, (admittedly I chill easily), however their are very nice robes to keep you warm.

Stayed at this hotel for a family get-away. We were not dissapointed. Staff was helpful, friendly and we took advantage of the valet services. Hotel was spotless and the room was comfortable and had convenient amenities.

Room Tip: Ask for a Bay View room on the top floor...beautiful view of Tampa Bay through floor to ceiling wind...

Only spent one night on a stop over to another city. The room was nice, very clean. Beds were wonderful!

Only draw backs were .... Taylor swift was in town! Hotel was mobbed with crazy Tweens and their saints of mothers. So the hotel was very busy. I also was a little freaked out opening the curtain to see offices on the other side of the rotunda. Thankfully I was fully clothed.... Also their was a light to the shower out so it made it a bit dark in the bathroom while showering.

But really can't complain after getting this hotel for a steal via Priceline

Room Tip: Chose away from the ice machine and elevators.

Location Is Great, Right In The Middle Of Everything. Rooms Were nice, Just Had To Pass Up The Temptation To Show Off To The People In The Offices Facing Your Room...lol The Bar In The Lobby Was A Relaxing Place To Have A Cocktail And Everyone Was Nice And Accommodating.

We had to leave our Tampa home for insect extermination in the same town and thought we'd make the most of it and stay at a nice hotel with a pool and get spoiled a little.

The positive is that the beds were extremely comfortable, they even had one soft pillow and one firmer one. The room was very clean and the people there seemed really nice. First night we were able to hear door slams at 4 am from people getting in from partying, okay, this happens but the walls seem a little on the thin side. The room had GREAT shower, water pressure which I love! but... this is a nickle and dime you place with $7.00 if you drink the bottle of water on the desk and another $5.00 if you want a microwave or empty fridge, $12.95 per night if you want the Wifi service that much cheaper hotels offer for free....Valet parking was $18.50 a night which is the only way you can park close. They won't loan out their cart to lowly self park-ers. Parking was free, on the other hand. Also, the hotel is convenient to shopping ( a mall across the street, and Panera, Starbucks and other restaurants within walking distance). The pool? concrete! sterile not a flower in sight. The focal point is a handicap crane to assist them in getting in the pool. It's smack in the middle, oh and if you like exhaust fans, there are several in full view from the pool area as well.

Went to Tampa because Rihanna came to town for her tour, which was amazing!!! I was very worried to stay at this hotel based on others reviews. The check in was quick, and the ladies at the front desk were very polite. The mattress in the rooms were very comfortable, never slept on something so nice. The only downside was the big disappointment on the roof, the pool. It was very dark and gloomy so I did not take part in that. The shower did not drain at all but was fixed immediately. But was still gross to stand in dirty water. But very nice overall would stay there again.
