“Clean and comfortable but not for vacation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Near airport but not downtown and not near beaches. Solid for business travel and not expensive; however Shula's restaurant in the hotel is way overpriced and not worth it. Go to Maggianos across the street.

On our way to a company conference in Clearwater Beach we spent the night at the Intercontinental. It is located one block from a huge mall, and so we ate dinner at Maggianos. What a great dinner, and the short walk back was just right to work off some dinner. There is free parking indoors, they have the park and fly with free shuttle service to TIA. We have stayed here many times and always have a very nice room. The staff is very friendly, they will bring you wine glasses and openers etc.

Room Tip: Always choose a room that is not near an elevator, will be quietest at the end of the hall

Green Features: They ask if you would prefer to re use your towels, or have new ones. They also have a recycle bin next to the desk

The Intercontinental is a great hotel in a perfect location. The hotel is located on Kennedy Blvd. and is easy access from I-275. It is close to the International Plaza, Tampa airport, great restaurants, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers stadium and across the street from the Westshore Mall. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and there is plenty of drawer and closet space. The bathroom is spacious and has very nice amenities. The public spaces are very comfortable and they have a great bar and Shula's Steakhouse is on site. Their coffee bar carries Illy Coffee and if that is not to your taste they are across the street from Panera and Starbucks.

We choose to stay at the hotel solely because of the fabulous customer service we receive from Anna the lobby bar. She is skilled and professional bartender. Her drinks are always consistent. Her positive attitude and prompt service puts us a perfect mood so we enjoy our stay. Thank you Anna!

This hotel is centrally located near two shopping centers and within close driving distance to downtown. The rooms are updated and are very nice, and service is impeccable. It also includes a great steakhouse downstairs. Highly recommended for business or pleasure!!

Hotel is clean and the staff very helpful. The security lock on my door was broken and they sent a man up within ten minutes to fix it. The restaurant in the hotel had excellent food and service. Room service breakfast was outstanding. The decor was lovely and the terry robes so comfy. Two minor complaints... My window opened to the interior lobby and the window let I very little natural light, and the wifi that in paid extra for was unreliable.

Shopping, relaxation, and privacy away from home in an urban setting with a view of the city skyline and fireworks all across the night sky. Location close to the best shopping in Tampa Bay area and great dining nearby. Adjacent to major access highways and not far from attractions but with better hotel room pricing and no-cost parking. Also convenient to drive across the bay into Pinellas county. Chose this hotel for the eye pleasing modern conservative decor, on site, and in room amenities. The staff was friendly and courteous. As an LGBT consumer I found no disapproval of my lifestyle from any staff. They went to extra lengths to determine the best room to view the fireworks from the room window so we wouldn't have to go out and fight the crowds. The overall service level was only moderate. Housekeeping was good but not excellent. Our room was serviced, kept tidy, and the staff was pleasant but the carpet was mildly sticky in one area of the room. Other guests room service trays were left in the hall for more that 6-8 hours during the day without pickup. Our bathroom, towels, and the bed linens were all very clean. The pool area was clean. Parking garage was clean and easy to access. The hotel is in a very safe neighborhood. I would recommend the hotel to friends and family and would stay there again. Overall a good stay and meets the brand standard in my opinion. Just a little work needed from the staff on minor details that could make a 4 or 5 star rating. Best part of stay was value to quality ratio. Thank you,

Room Tip: South: parking garage (but quiet), North: roadway, Northeast: best view of city skyline, Higher floo...

Green Features: Excellent water conservation practice with reduction of laundry by reuse of towels/linens if the guest prefers.
