I generally think IHG hotels are the best value for any business or leisure money, but I was quite disappointed with his hotel when I recently booked a stay during a business trip to Tampa.
The hotel seemed to have a tired and gloomy ambience, rug in the lobby was worn looking unless they were aspiring for the grunge look. The room I was in was quite decent enough with the usual amenities but when you opened the window curtains - you have an expansive view of the offices in the building across. All these are tolerable, but one thing I could not tolerate was the unreliable internet wi-fi connection which failed several times during the night as I was trying to catch up on some very important work. After the same thing occured during the 2nd night, I vowed that I would not make the same mistake of staying in this hotel again.
