Nice rooms but would rather have had two queen beds than the doubles. Also do not like paying daily for WiFi when less expensive hotels provide it for free. Only 2 connections per charge also - kind of hard to manage on that with three people with laptops and smartphones!

The parking garage isn't evident when entering the property so the very nice valet directed us to it and directed us from the garage to the lobby. Location is very good for access to the airport or shopping. This is a large place - we didn't get a chance to explore and only stayed on night. Though it is acknowledged at check in, Priority Club membership doesn't get you any perks here. Our 6th floor room was very nice and clean, the bed was comfy enough (I am a fitful sleeper). For dining, Shula's is on site but other options are within an easy walk toward the Westshore Mall. After dinner elsewhere, we got drinks at the bar - nice mojitos and margaritas. Tip is included in your bill which gave our server no incentive to provide good service. The only breakfast options I noticed (there could be others) were steeply priced room-service or a little counter between the bar and the lobby that sold coffee and pastries. We did not use the pool, business center or the $12.95/day wi-fi.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property and share with others. We do have a great location close to nice dining options, as well as shopping and entertainment venues. For breakfast we also offer a wonderful breakfast buffet inside Shula’s, hopefully you will have the opportunity to try it in the future. Thanks again for all of your great feedback.

My family stayed here just one night while waiting for a flight. The hotel was ver nice--everything was clean. It did cost us $25 to rent a small refridgerator. What's up with that? We waited for 30-60 minutes for them to bring it up to our room. Not sure why they are not in the room already.

With nine floors and 424 rooms, the InterContinental tampa does swift business and appeals to a broad spectrum of travelers. During my stay, I witnessed families with kids enjoying the pool, a gaudily dressed wedding party making its way from the lobby to one of the banquet rooms, a knot of film crew regulars enjoying drinks at the Japanese fusion boite Sushi-Teq, and corporate types from the nearby business district three deep at the raucous cocktail lounge RumBa. There's no question this is a luxury property, but it manages to be grand without feeling pretentious.Have a visit atleast to see the grand building
