“Good Businessman's Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

I had a business conference last week at another nearby well known nationally branded hotel. Unfortunately, I tried to book the room too late & none were available at the very attractive 'conference room' rate. The rack rate was unacceptably high; which prompted looking for a better option online. I am glad I did.

I have stayed at the InterContinental before --as well as the other hotel where my conference was located. Clearly, the Intercontinental was the better choice. The property is cleaner, more modern, and, available on line for only $ 40 more than the 'conference room rate' at the other hotel.

When I arrived, I had dinner at Shula's lounge and was not disappointed. The hot food at the Buffet Breakfast at Shula's the next morning was, however, cold. The staff fell all over themselves to make it right. So, I cannot complain.

The hotel was clean, modern, and the young staff very friendly and accommodating.

I would stay here again.

Stayed only one night but thoroughly enjoyed my stay,

The Good:

Very nice public area
Room were nicely decorated and furnished
The rooftop pool was spectacular but a slight bit chilly
Very close to TPA
Plenty of outlets for electronic devices
Nice TV with inputs for other devices


Opportunity for Impro vements:

The views were a bit odd, it seems as thought every room looks out into a courtyard which faces an office building. You can clearly see into the offices and I am guessing the offices can see clearly into the rooms unless the blinds are drawn.

We stayed because we got a great price. Took kids to lowrey park zoo. Hotel was affordable, easy and free parking, and nice central location to zoo and other attractions.We were pleasantly surprised at accommodating staff (sometimes at business hotels families don't feel very welcome) and had a nice stay. Pool area was a little disappointing, was very clean, but needed updating. No hot tub/spa.

Room Tip: We stayed away from elevators near pool, good option for us, very quiet and good access to pool with...

We stayed for 3 nights for spring trading in March . Hotel is very nice with an updated modern feel. The price was great for hotel of this level.Staff was friendly and helpful. Free parking in the tower behind hotel. There are some restaurants within walking distance but area can be a bit sketchy, for us it was centrally located and we drove everywhere.The breakfast buffet price was a high at $21. We would stay here again overall a good value

This hotel has become our most preferred hotel in Tampa. We come to Tampa very regularly for business and would only stay somewhere else if the Intercontinental is unavailable. The staff is welcoming and friendly, the rooms are impeccably clean, and the location is very central. Stay for the breakfast buffet at Shula's!!

The rooms nice, but not overwhelming; the service efficient, but not warm; the restaurant a decent steak house but not memorable. I'd stay again if in the area -- and be glad to do so -- but I wouldn't seek it out.

We stayed here the night before and the afternoon after our recent Royal Caribbean cruise.

It was excellent and in a great area, handy for the adjacent mall and convenience stores.

Royal Caribbean said it was not available after our vacation, so our travel agent booked it for us and we enjoyed the fantastic pool whilst relaxing before our flight back to the UK.

Green Features: In room recyclable waste segregation was good to see.
