Stayed here for work, it's in an odd area near a mall, strip malls, in what seems like an office park. In fact, the hotel shares a building with what I can only assume is an office building.

This hotel offers a great location, great beds and pillows, hot water and good water pressure and an excellent bar and Shula's steakhouse. Free parking was a bonus as was this safe location. The children enjoyed the roof top pool.

After 4 hectic days of business and staying in a 3 star property, this was a welcome stay. All the usuall comforts of the Intercontinental at a reasonable price. The gym was quite good to sweat out the week's stress and breakfast was good too.

I went to a conference with about 75 people to the Intercontinental. The hotel is only a few miles from the airport. The shuttle service was quick and included at no additional charge.

This hotel was very nice and close to Tampa International Airport.

But why the 3 star rating? The noise. Maybe I had a bum room, but the gap between the door and the hallway was enough to hear every footstep. Also, if you like quiet, get a room away from the elevator. Some hotels, not a noise problem. This one, noise problem. Bed was okay, but soft for my taste, but...
