“Nice stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

Picked this up on Hotwire. Easy check in, nice room. Quiet the night I stayed. Only regret is the lack of plastic disposable cups. Not a fan of reusing glass in a hotel. Early flight and the shuttle driver was available at 5 am. Would be a great spot if you had time to hang out. Across the street from a large mall, bank, and other convenience stores. Newspaper available as well.

I book the hotel through Priceline for last minutes stays, while I had business in St Petes. This hotel isn't too far from the airport, so which was nice for me leaving the next day. The hotel shares a parking structure with the work office building right across from it. The check in was ok, and even thou I was Plat member which should waved the internet, I had to talk to manager next morning during check out to clear it. It's a nice intercontinental which I always wanted to stay once. Other than that, I guess I do like the IHG brands high end better than Hyatt.

Room Tip: You want room that face outside the buildings, not facing the office across which can see you.

I recently stayed at this hotel while on a business trip in Tampa. The room was clean and tastefully decorated and the hotel is located conveniently close to the airport. I particularly liked the spacious lobby, which has many comfortable seats, WI-FI, and complimentary newspapers. My only criticism was of the tacky flyers for pizza delivery that were left in my room. These don't belong in a hotel of this caliber.

We have stayed at this Intercontinental several times and have enjoyed the upscale decor, cleanliness and convenience of location. We always take advantage of the valet parking and have found the customer service from the valet team to be outstanding.

Check in was efficient although no information was given about hotel amenities or no recognition as a returning guest. We were thanked for being an IHG Rewards member but did not receive any special perks that we normally receive such as upgrade, bottled waters, snacks or coupons.

We enjoy this location and will be back.

I love the Intercontinental gropu and once again I was really happy with this hotel.
As a Platinium Ambassador we were given an automatic upgrade to a suite, a great bottle of wine, fruit and a free movie. I really appreciate it when hotels reward loyal clients.
The rooms are beautiful, the pool small but nice and being close to the airport you can lie and watch the planes taking off and coming in for a landing.
The steakhouse is top class and service excellent.
You pay for internet and valet parking which seems to be the standard in the USA.
I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get a high room and suite

Stayed here for a meeting being held at the hotel. It definitely struck a good balance between being close enough to the airport for an easy commute to and fro for the attendees (hotel shuttle was definitely a plus for meeting cost-savings), but not being an "airport hotel." We were able to have a dinner on the premises, but also leverage some local options within walking distance on another night.

Since I was at this hotel for a meeting, my lodging needs may be different from someone traveling for pleasure, or sightseeing, or a romantic getaway...but I had no issues. The accommodations were fine and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The gym equipment was decent, but I found it to be pretty small for the size of the hotel; it was jam-packed on the mornings I was there (I see an expansion sometime in their future).

I encountered a couple of issues, but they were ultimately resolved to my satisfaction. Special kudos to Brian, who works in a guest relations/guest services capacity. His customer service was excellent throughout my stay.

Nice very clean hotel. The furnishing seeded a little dated. Needed foam pillows and they arrived quickly. Didn't have king bed on our day of arrival, since there was a large group attending a conference. The front desk staff was pleasant and had another room for us the following day. The beds were comfortable. We met friends and had dinner at Shula's Steak House. The dinner was good, but pricey. We ate at Bern's Steakhouse the time before. Better steak, better price, and better service. We like the InterContiental and will stay again.

Room Tip: Try not to be near elevators.
