This Tampa trip I tagged along on my husband's business trip. Rain was in the forecast (so couldn't be at the beach), so searched on Priceline for a 4 star hotel with amenities & a location where I had options for entertainment while he was busy working.
Last visit we stood Downtown at the Regency, and although 'ok', I knew this wouldn't suffice.
At the Intercontinental, our room was VERY nicely appointed & decorated, clean & appealing. The beds were VERY comfortable! We have a cell phone that has a 'hot spot' feature, for our computer, so didn't concern ourselves with the hotel WiFi. The occupants of the hotel were primarily business men & women. There was a pleasant sophistication to the bldg, yet not 'stuffy'.
Surprisingly, the rain forecast didn't come to fruition, so I was able to enjoy the rooftop heated pool. The location of the Intercontinental is near a shopping center & restaurants. Movies, many presently in theaters, may be purchased on your TV in your room, but they cost about $16/movie. I opted for the free HBO movies offered. The real 'DEAL' of this all was being able to bid on Priceline and enjoying it for $100/night! a TRUE VALUE!
