I'm the kind of traveler that wants a nice place to stay, has room service if I choose to use it, and a helpful/professional staff. The Intercontinental Tampa has it! I called the hotel to arrange to be picked up from the airport (complimentary) , and within 30mins I was checking-in. Even though I had booked through Priceline, they didn't treat me as such. The young lady was more than happy to accomodate my request for a room on a higher level floor, away from the elevator. Let me also say this, I'm a guy that was taught by my parents to use my manners. "Please, thank you", and not being a jerk for no good reason, usually can get your simple request taken of. I don't walk in with a sense of entitlement, if I'm coming in on a discounted rate. Great location, close to shopping and restaurants. Shula's is located on the property, but I didn't eat there.Staff was helpful and attentive. Room was comfortable and clean. Another guest told me that self-parking was free (always a plus). Some people come to a city, check-in, and live in the hotel for the duration of their stay. Not me. When I wakeup, I'm gone for the day/and most of the night to explore the city! So, for me The Intercontinental Tampa was perfect. I got exactly what I wanted.I had an early flight out Mon AM, and got the shuttle to transport me to the airport again.
