I was surprised to be disappointed with a number of aspects of my recent business stay at the Intercontinental Hotel in Tampa. On the positive side, this hotel is very convenient to the airport and the room size was decent. But the shower head provided minimal water flow and the mattress was uncomfortably hard. Several of us also were ignored...

I just returned from a two night stay at this hotel. I checked in later - about 8 p. and was just exhausted. The room was filthy! The bedding and towels were clean but the rest was disgusting. Dried toothpaste on the bathroom counter. No toiletries. Used - and wet - coffee filter still in the pot. No tea or...

We spent three nights and everything went smoothly. Check-in was quick and friendly. The room had no view except into the atrium of an office building and into someone's cubical.

I stayed there in January of '15. The stay was OK. The lobby isn't very grand and some of the public facilities are starting to show their age. The pool is small and uninspiring, plus no hot tub. The bed was very comfortable but the limited selection of cable channels meant I couldn't watch the Australian Open. I wanted to...

Kim & Jess helped my friend and I checked in. I have a weird request each time I stay at a hotel and they were more than willing to accommodate it. Will definitely be staying here again the next time I come to Tampa.

Reception staff always friendly,welcoming and professional. Conveniently located next to Westshore Mall and short drive from International Plaza too. Great breakfast at Shula's too.
