This is a great hotel.First class accomidations and located across the street form a mall and movie theater. The staff were super helpful especially Natasha, who went way out of her way to help me. All of the staff were wonderful. I won't be staying anywhere else in Tampa.

This was our second stay at the Intercontinental in Tampa. It does sort of seem like a hotel for business travelers, but we still enjoyed the nice room, beautiful lobby and awesome rooftop pool. The room was clean and comfortable. We will definitely stay here again if we go back to Tampa.

We have stayed at this hotel a number of times in the past. We always find the room to be consistently great.

Beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are modern and...

I stayed at this hotel two weekends in a row and both stays were great. The rooms are clean and have no strange smells which is always a turnoff for me. The bathroom provides travel size q-tips, loofah, makeup rag and a few other small extras that comes in handy and provides a nice touch. The area is extremely convenient,...

Let's be honest. Tampa has some of the worst hotels of their respected nationwide brands. The Westin is a joke, the Marriotts are pretty decent, not great. This Intercon is the best hotel in Tampa that I've been to and probably is the best. The staff here is very friendly and will help make your stay feel great. While the...

This hotel compares favourably with other Inter Continental hotels with excellent rooms and facilities. The reception area was not well defined and the concierge non existent.
