This was my first stay at an Intercontinental, but it won't be my last. First, they had a convenient shuttle that picked me up at the airport. Next, the check-in process was smooth, friendly, and efficient. And my room was definitely 4+ stars. I've stayed in 5-star places that were not as nice as this hotel. How many hotels have a light that automatically turns on when the closet doors are opened?
The regular room rate was less than $100, but I got a better deal on Priceline for the Friday after Thanksgiving. Room service was prompt and delivered great food after the onsite and nearby restaurants closed. A 24-hour business center is off the lobby, and free internet access is available at these computers (compared to an expensive daily cost in the room).
Although I spent just one night, I'll definitely make this hotel at the top of my list on my next trip to Tampa.
