The rooms are comfortable but There is no privacy in room with inner office view. The pool is good and the hotel is generally clean. Wifi to expensive, we live in America, you can provide free internet.... Ask McDonalds they know which company use to provide free wifi.

Great valet, check in experience and room. An over-cooked steak and a vanishing in-room breakfast order were low lights, but Crystal and her team went over and above to compensate. I am a platinum elite IHG card holder.

Upon arrival, the Intercontinental Tampa has impressive surroundings, it's a beautiful hotel. The front desk staff is professional and service oriented.

I visited this hotel with my family of 2 adults and 2 older teens. Initially, we were very impressed by the exquisite lobby area.
