“A few minor adjustments could make this hotel absolutely phenomenal and my #1 recommendation”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

The positive: the hotel is absolutely beautiful, the decor fabulous, the food yummy, service fast and polite, the pool amazing & and on the roof, the ENTIRE staff was on point, was there to serve, offered immediate attention, was exceedingly pleasant and capable. The hotel location; brilliant! Across the street from the mall and one block from a signature LA fitness... Absolutely brilliant. Andrea G. front desk supervisor excellent people skills, proactive and effective delivery of customer service!
Issue corrections to improve hotel value: the bed sheets; not the cleanest. I went through approximately 6 flat sheets on the clean linen cart until I found one without someone else's body hair. The sheets need to be separated before placed in the washer! PR sheet by the pool; false advertising,example fruit says $10, when in fact it was $16, not including gratuity,that is not appropriate. The water bottles in the room marked $7, not a smart business decision, leaves an impression of no ethical boundaries.

The only real problem I have with the hotel is how thin the walls are! Our neighbor had a small child, and it sounded like he was sitting on the bed with us because it was so loud.

I liked the pool up on the rooftop. It was a nice getaway.

We got a great deal on the hotel during an internet sale, and it was well worth the amount that we paid for it.

Room Tip: If you don't mind parking your own car, you will save yourself $18 a day.

Booked two rooms so we could catch the Rays V Giants game - reception staff were abs brilliant when we asked to do a room change twice (first & second rooms were too near the elevators) - no trouble at all. Experience was way beyond what we expected from a "Large Chain'
10 out of 10.

Room Tip: Only comment would be about noise from elevators

The facility is excellent but the staff surpasses it all. Jackie Davies, who handled check in was warm and welcoming. At the end of a difficult day of travel, one cannot over emphasize the value of a genuine smile and a true sense of hospitality. If visiting Tampa, this is the place to stay, particularly if business is in the West Shore area or Downtown

Room Tip: Rooms facing the interior are quiet

Green Features: Hotel has an excellent green policy. Guests are encouraged to participate but not overwhelmed with a message.

Have stayed at this hotel many times in different rooms all over the property. On this trip Kathryn Farrell (front desk) upgraded us to this beautiful business suite. The views were spectacular! Rooms are all very clean and yes we try to stay away from the elevator but its not that noisy as some of the others have mentioned. The self parking is very convenient and the location close to shopping, dining, Clearwater Beach, downtown Tampa & the airport cannot be beat. Will come back again & again.

Experience far exceeded expectations. A special shout out to Kathryn Farrell at the front desk who went way out of her way to make my son and I feel welcome. Every day she was a helpful, friendly, courteous face. By the end of the week, she made us feel like family. Thanks to her, we couldn't ask for a better visit.

I stayed at the Intercontinental Tampa this week after booking through a blind, discount hotel booking service. The exterior, lobby and rooms were all very nice and exceeded my expectations. There is a Shula's steakhouse on the premises and the food and service are excellent. The bathroom and toiletries were nicely appointed. The in-room vanity was nice and unexpected. Self parking was free - also nice and unexpected!
