My niece was taking the Florida Bar Exam so my sister and I decided to accompany her and do some shopping. We stayed at the Intercontinental Tampa and loved it. Valet parking is about $18.00 but the hotel offers free self-parking and it was not bad. The lobby is a very open space but nicely done. The reception/front desk staff was excellent; they were very friendly and helpful. Our room was on the third floor (324); it had a nice view of the mall, very quiet, larger than expected and very clean. The lemon verbena shampoo, conditioner and body lotion were a plus. The Westshore Mall is across the street (about four blocks if you walk) with a few nice restaurants (P.F. Chang, Mitchell’s Seafood…) and of course, at the hotel you have Shula’s Steakhouse. I had the filet mignon and it was excellent, but the best was the chocolate soufflé. The only negative is that they charge $12.95 daily for Wi-Fi, so we only used it one day, but overall, a great place to stay.
