I enjoyed my stay at the InterContinental Hotel Tampa. The hotel was very clean, the fitness center was very good and the staff very pleasant. Huge plus for my family : 1- I arrived early and they gave me a room without any problem. 2- Complementary shuttle to the airport 3- Complementary internet connection Thanks for the hospitality !

What you expect from a large chain hotel - efficient but impersonal. Ridiculous wifi charges which were sorted out immediately we raised the subject. In such a humid climate, water should be freely dispensed to guests not available for $7 per bottle. That said, the room was comfortable but was overlooked by an office block. We could see them work,... More

The hotel is nice, the rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable, parking is free. BUT, the absurdity is that they charge outrageous prices for wifi. If you have more than one person in your room, they will charge you the daily rate for every device you use (smart phones, laptops, tablets, etc) each day. I was there for 2... More

This is our go-to hotel whenever we're in Tampa. It's amazing you can stay at a place this nice for the price. They're also one of the only hotels at this star level in Tampa that has free parking. To top it off, it's close to everything the Westshore area has to offer.

I enjoyed my stay at the Intercontinental in Tampa. I was there for a conference. The accommodations, food and service were all very good. My only complaint was the location was not all that great.
