Your extraordinary staff brings a beautiful property to life.
Their dedication and vigor could be felt at every level during each interaction.
From our check-in through check-out with enthusiastic front desk associates, individual pride of service was always evident.
Efficient telephone assistance made our reservation process effortless and the concierge was knowledgeable on all subjects upon which we inquired.
The staff at Shula's during breakfast and their colleagues at the Lobby Bar made the beginning and end of our day a pleasure.
The housekeeping staff were courteous, prompt and thorough in all of their duties.
Thank you, again, to everyone who made our stay at the Intercontinental Tampa a relaxing and memorable visit.

Thank you for everything. We had the most wonderful experiences
at your hotel. In fact the word HOTEL does not do this property justice.

If you want a bargain in Tampa and if a view isn't that important to you, choose InterContinental. A couple of loud, bodacious nights were enjoyed by me and my wife while we stayed there.
The breakfast was outstanding (can't beat Shula's) and the staff were extremely friendly and welcoming.
Have next week booked as well.

The hotel was immaculate and the service was outstanding. This is a perfect location for a weekend get-a-way to release stress with succulent dishes at Shula's and pampering by the staff,

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Superior Service and Accommodations
The Intercontinental hotel is lovely, conveniently located to access main highways to local attractions. The staff were very helpful and professional, and very friendly. Only dissappointment was the pool area. Very basic and uncomfortable.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Arnie Green bad experience at this hotel
the noise from the street Friday and Saturday night and the noise from the guest that came form a wedding Saturday night made it a very unpleasant memory for this stay.
We will never come back to this hotel because when I checked out and told him that I had no hot water at 5:00 am on Sunday he did not even flinch and just said I am sorry.
I told him about the noise and he said I should have called down and told him . well that is not a good enough answer for me wanting to come back to this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LoneSt4r Noisy Room on Top Floor
Nice hotel, well located, with nice services. Overall impression was good, but was tinted by two events:
- We were on the top floor (11) and the room was very noisy. There was an engine (A/C unit or elevator engine?) that was starting and stopping every other minute. The sound seemed to come from the roof. It disrupted our sleep numerous times during the night.
- The airport shuttle driver took off right in front of us. After gesturing to him, and after he gestured back, I turned around to pick up my suitcases and during that time, he was gone. I had to wait 30 minutes for the next run.

I reserved 2 rooms. I requested connecting or on the same floor because I was traveling with my children. When checking in neither request was granted.. My children were put on a completely different floor

Even though the TV wasn't working the first night when I brought it to the attention of the desk clerk the next morning I was very happy to come back to my room and find the TV on and functioning, a personalized note and a phone message! Thank you for the prompt attention!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RinaRD4 No Regrets! Thank you!
My wedding was held at the Intercontinental Hotel on February 22, 2014 and it was absolutely beautiful! Both ceremony and reception was held at the location. The event staff was professional, understanding, and easy to work with. They ensured that every one of my requests was met with no problems. My ceremony was held in the atrium in front of the beautiful water fountain under natural lighting. I was beyond pleased with the entire location. The service staff at my reception was exceptional; they made sure that everything was in place, that guests were comfortable, that there were no awkward moments in food service, and I must say that the food was absolutely phenomenal! Overall, the Intercontinental Hotel-Tampa played a major role in pulling off the wedding of my dreams by allowing me to have my wedding at their location. Thank you Intercontinental Hotel-Tampa for making my wedding day one that I will cherish forever with no regrets!

Hotel was perfect for the night before our cruise. Nice rooms, nice lobby/bar and restaurant. Also within walking distance to stores to pickup those last minute cruise items and wine. Was able to easily arrange reasonable transfers to and from port, would use again if in area. Thanks!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kayla20 just can't get it right
I'm here several times a month and in the last year things are awful. From the time I check in to when I leave. Rooms are dirty, pool was dirty and the staff is forever changing. When you call down to front dest they are always very nice telling you they will send someone up and take care of it...NEVER HAPPENS! And when a room in hall ways have a party...forget it no one will take care of it....

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Mgonzales1235 Watch where you park your vehicle!
Just returned from a company trip in Tampa. We stayed at the InterCon Hotel. When you drive to the hotel there are signs directing you to park in their parking garage. So we parked in the parking garage assuming everything would be safe. Long story short, our vehicle's passenger window was shattered and the car was ransacked. The hotel staff was very unhelpful and now the story is "they do not own the garage" therefore do not care. They did give me the phone number to the company that "owns" the garage and they were just as unhelpful. Besides the unsecured and dangerous parking garage and poor customer service, this place satisfactory. We will not return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dcsapper1 Small and Expensive
The rooms in this hotel are very small and therefore by comparison they are very expensive. Also this InterContinental does not have a Club room, which was very disappointing. The free self parking is an excellent idea and the pool looks very nice, but I can't get away from how small the room was. My queen size bed only just allowed me to squeeze past between it and the window column to get into bed! Also the rooms on the street side are very noisy, even on the 9th floor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CrazyYooper Poor service at this Property
Comparing this property to other Inter Continental Properties:
Couldn't find valet and when he finally returned he walked up and TOLD me to move my car and never asked to park it, so I parked it myself. It was a pain to get back into the hotel threw multiple unmarked doorways in the back of the property.
Room was clean but set for 2 guests not for 4 as per my Resv.
When I called and ask the room to be set for 4 they asked in a rude tone...what do you mean "set up for 4 people", Me: you know, 4 towels and the likes. Hotel: like what else do you want? Me: OK... 4 towels. 4 glasses. 4 robes. You know 4 of everything instead of just 2. Hotel: Fine, I'll let them know. "Click". 1 hour later room was set.
In addition I note the following:
Rooms were tight.
Beds were small Dbl not Queen.
Pool area was full of cigarette butts and just not an appealing place, mainly a smokers lounge.
Room was clean and furnishing were proper once set properly.
Late night room service across the hall was loud and woke us up.
Check in and out was fast and courteous.
Location for early flight was favorable.
Business center was nicely appointed.
Dining was nice.
And did I mention the Service was unusually poor for an I.C.
On my next stay I will try the Crowne down the street.
I like I.C. and don't mind the price but I expect professional, prompt and courteous service which I didn't receive the night of this stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Volleyball mom 23 Nice room. POOR housekeeping
We booked for a three night stay. Arrived at hotel at approximately 1:00 a.m. Looking forward to nice hot shower after seven hour drive. Room appeared nice and clean. Went to take a shower and pulled back the shower curtain, past guests toiletries were still in the shower! Even a very large, well-used ladies personal shaver! Yuck! No way those items would have been missed if shower had been properly cleaned. Repeatedly had to ask for towels and housekeeping staff did not wash coffee mugs or refill coffee supplies during course of our stay. Won't stay there again. Neglected bathroom makes you sleep uneasy in even the nicest bed. Who knows what else was neglected. Hotel did comp us breakfast for one morning for our troubles. Not quite enough considering cost of our stay. Also over $70 of internet charges were added to our bill even though we were in the "club." Make sure you check your bill!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by APCD Comfortable bed, king pillows and excellent service
Staff are welcoming, compentent and always available to help. The property is ideally located near the airport, restaurants, shopping mall and a neighborhood for walking. I truly appreciated the courteous staff and especially Kathryn at the front desk - I felt like I was returning home and that my choice to stay at an IHG hotel was valued.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by varakicx Hotel, room and location good; staff and organisation not
Although the stay was ok, the room was comfortable and clean, I was not really satisfied. Staff messed up on the reservation; did not know which creditcard to charge, booked "free internet" 4 times on my bill and after sorting things out concerning the included breakfast, a staffmember did not want to listen to me nor a collegae and starting arguing again about the charge for breakfast. Even five minutes after the same discussion took place with another staffmember concerning breakfast a day before. Therefore organisation and staff to me do not appear professional.
Besides of that pay for WiFi (except if you are an IHG loyalty member) is not a sign of considering yourself as a (business) hotel meeting up 2014 standards.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Trafficnoisekeepsmeawake noisy, over priced
The room was noisy - sounded like we were at a Harley Davidson rally. When we did finally fall asleep, the bloody alarm went off - there was no way to turn it off - the plug was behind the bed and the end that goes into the alarm clock had a cover bolted over it.
The room was described as a suite with a separate room - but there's no door so that's hardly separate. The space would more appropriately be called a studio. We booked the suite expecting that our daughter could have her own space, watch her own movies, have some time away from us - this can't happen in this sort of room.
Sleeper sofa was terrible. Springs in your face. Had to move heavy furniture to set up. Couldn't place a soda in the bar fridge because it's "computerized inventory" you're under threat of being charged for everything you remove and/or a $45 restocking fee.
Don't drink the bottle water that's out on the desk and vanity - it's, (get this) $7.00!!! What criminal act is THAT?
No ventilation in the bathroom - all that shower steam comes right out into the room.
And that's not a very inexpensive room by any measure in a horrible 90's building near the airport in Tampa. Way over priced for what it is and SO not worth the bother.
Pool is gross. Everything about it.
Enjoyed the complimentary mouthwash though!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ILovetoTravel26 Wonderful hotel!
We stayed at the Intercontinental Hotel for two nights!
The staff is really friendly and helpful! Anytime we had a question or needed anything they were willing to go above and beyond! The housekeeping staff was wonderful and they always came quickly when we asked for extra service! They always had a smile on their faces! We choose to valet our car it was a little pricey but the valet guys were wonderful! They pulled the car up quickly and always opened all the doors for us! For me the best thing was how clean the room was! We have stayed at many other hotels in Florida and this is by far one of the cleanest rooms I have stayed in! It is also in a great location, across the street is the Westshore Mall and there are a lot of really good nearby restaurants. The hotel itself has a great steakhouse, "Shula's." The only downfall that this hotel has is the pool. It is a rooftop pool which is very neat but is very outdated! The patio area where the pool is is also very outdated! Overall I would recommend this hotel to a friend and definitely stay here the next time we are in Tampa!!!! Thank you again to all of the staff at the hotel!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Smyrnasurfin Just a GREAT WEEKEND!
We arrived early for Gasparilla, we did not expect our room to be ready and it was. Allowed us to get ready prior to the drive down to Bayshore. The room was extremely clean and well appointed. My girlfriend loved the choice of furnishings and decoration of the room, She called it calm and relaxing and well thought out, I actually agreed.
After the parade we decided to stay in the room and order room service and watch a movie. The food was fantastic and the bed very comfortable. We are already looking forward to next year!

Recently I was able to combine a trip to Tampa Florida for business and Leisure. As a part time back up musician I had a performance the night before I checked into the Intercontinental Tampa, and a business meeting that morning. I found the staff to be very curtious and friendly. I recieved a complimentary suite upgrade that was extremely nice. I also enjoyed a little free time at Shula's Steak House located on the property. My only regrets were I didn't check in earlier and I couldn't stay longer. I will definately come back.

We recently stayed at the Tampa hotel before departing on a week long cruise. The staff was extremely helpful getting us to the hotel from the airport as well as to the port the next morning. They even picked us back up at the end of the cruise for a small fee which made our whole trip much easier from start to finish.
