I travel to Tampa frequently on business. While I'd prefer to stay at one of the hotels in the Harbourview area, I've never found a satisfactory one (the Marriott is fine, but is difficult to book on short notice). On the past few trips, I've stayed at the Intercontinental. I'm not a fan of its location -- not a walkable neighborhood, and the views are disappointing -- but it's easily accessible to/from the airport. More important, it is the best of the Tampa hotels I've encountered thus far. The rooms are clean and well-furnished, breakfast and room service are decent, the staff is helpful, and the coffee is outstanding (they sell Illly in the lobby and restaurant).
