Travel Blogs from Tampa
... truly enjoyed ourselves there last year and felt totally at home! We can't wait to go to the "Crab Bag" and have a "crabby experience"!!! All I can say is, crabs, shrimp and oysters you better hide because we are coming...
For now, we are slowly driving up...with of course, a stop in Richmond, Virginia to see Alexandra!
This should be a very happy week!
Left The Keys, warm, around 80, got to Miami and it started to rain, geared up, heading north, went through about 4 different storms, we got soaked, stopped and decided to head to Tampa. Got down the road about 30 mins and it started to monsoon, could hardly see the road. Stopped at the first motel, and had to dry everything.... Went through ...
... I am loving it!
Like I said...I grew up in a small town, so living in a major city that the people from here classify as "small" is crazy to me, but unlike anything I have ever experienced. Everything is better here. The weather, the architecture, the scenery, the food, the overall atmosphere.
So far...I feel like I am on a permanent vacation. I look out my bedroom window and see palm trees swaying in the light breeze. I walk outside and am able to ...
Back home today. Didnt have wifi access while in England on the boat so couldnt post. Too busy and tired last 3 days in Scotland Wrote up experiences each day though and will post a few at a time shortly It was a great and different adventure Now on to planning for ...

Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental Hotel Tampa
Großartige Verschönerung - neues Lieblingshotel in Tampa
Das frühere Wyndham wurde nicht nur frisch gestrichen! Das neue InterContinental ist angesagt, aber nicht protzig. Die Zimmer sind fabelhaft. Die Lage wirkt immer nocht sehr geschäflich (viele Zimmer blicken auf den Innenhof eines Bürogebäudes!), könnte jedoch locker mit einem neuen und angesagten Boutique-Hotel verwechselt werden. Das kostenlose kabellose Internet funktionierte bei mir super und die hochauflösenden Fernseher mit Flachbildschirm mit Anschlüssen für alle möglichen persönlichen Elektronikspielereien sind etwas ganz Besonderes. Wir verbringen viel Zeit in Tampa und ich kann ehrlich sagen, dass dieses Hotel das neue In-Hotel ist, weil es das Marriott, Hyatt und Westin Harbot Island locker schlägt.
Un alucinante lavado de cara; es mi nuevo favorito en Tampa
¡Hicieron más que pintar el antiguo Wyndham! El nuevo InterContinental está a la última sin ser pretencioso. Las habitaciones son fabulosas. La ubicación sigue siendo un poco tipo negocios (¡Muchas habitaciones dan al patio de una oficina!), pero podría confundirse fácilmente con un nuevo y moderno hotel boutique. Hay internet gratuito sin cables en la habitación, que me fue genial, y una televisión de alta definición pantalla plana con recepción HD y enchufes para todos tus chismes electrónicos, que es un buen toque. Nos alojamos en Tampa mucho y sinceramente puedo decir que es el nuevo hotel al que hay que ir y que supera con creces al Marriott, al Hyatt y al Westin Harbor Island.
L'hotel è stato completamente rinnovato - è ora il nostro hotel di Tampa preferito
Non si sono limitati a ritinteggiare le pareti del vecchio Wyndham: il nuovo Intercontinental è un hotel alla moda, senza essere pretenzioso. Le camere sono favolose. Certo, l'hotel ha conservato l'atmosfera da business hotel con tante camera che si affacciano su un cortile di uffici, ma potrebbe anche essere un hotel boutique all'ultima moda. La connessione wireless in camera mi è stata utilissima, così come il televisore a schermo piatto e alta definizione con prese e connessione senza fili per tutti i miei gadget elettronici. Andiamo spesso a Tampa e questo hotel è assolutamente il migliore e supera di gran lunga il Marriott, lo Hyatt e il Westin Harbor Island.
Ich übernachtete letztes Jahr in diesem Hotel, als es noch das Wyndham Westshore war und war nicht besonders beeindruckt.
L'année dernière, lorsque j'ai séjourné dans cet hôtel c'était le Wyndham Westshore et je n'avais pas été trop impressionné.
El año pasado cuando me alojé en este hotel, era el Wyndham Westshore y no me quedé excesivamente impresionada.
Last year, when I stayed at this hotel it was the Wyndam Westshore, and I wasn't overly impressed.
I'd previously stayed at this property many times as the Wyndham Westshore and was kind of sad to see it go. However, upon my last visit to Tampa - was very impressed by the extensive renovation done in its re-branding to Intercontinental Hotels. They closed the hotel for a few months and really did a major renovation to all areas. We only stayed one night, and to be sure there were signs and smells of new renovation. I guess the hotel had been reopened less than a week. Fresh paint smelled in my guest room, but the positive changes were many. A modern look and well thought out furniture made the small guest rooms very functional. A small entertainment cabinet had room for clothes, as well as a flat screen tv on top of unit. In various parts of it were a laptop sized safe, a fully stocked mini-bar, as well as ice bucket, glasses (both wine and cocktail), wine opener, etc. The bed was very comfortable, wireless internet worked flawlessly. Nice big desk work area as well as plug-in's on the lamps on desk and near bed for your laptop and/or wireless phone. The bathroom is again small, but very servicable with lots of good amenities including high end lotions/shampoo/soaps, a nice bathroom scale, salon style blow dryer - large shower/tub in my bathroom. 24 hour room service, Nightly Turndown Service, Helpful concierge, Fast Bell Staff and Efficient Front Desk Staff all impressed me. The restaurant is still Shula's Steakhouse which is a bit pricey, but excellent steaks, seafood and attentive service. Sports Bar is still near rear parking area, and Shula's No Name Bar in lobby has renovated as well - with more comfortable furniture, barstools and large flat panel HD Tv's to watch sports. Nice health club and pool are on 9th floor. Parking is free if self and good valet is available. Location makes this a great property. It's across the street from Westshore Plaza which has shopping and great restaurants. A short drive to Downtown Tampa, Raymond James Stadium and less than a mile from the bridge to St. Pete. For the price, I really like what you get at this property! Rooms run a bit higher for outside and bay views, but the cheaper interior view rooms are just as nice for less money! If you liked the Wyndham, you will love this renovation. If you didn't, you may want to give it a try - a new lobby, better service, faster elevators, and nicer accommodations await you.
This hotel was formerly know as the Wyndham Hotel. The property was recently reopened on 8/25/07. The location of the hotel is perfect for newcomers to the Tampa, Fl area. Approximately 15 minutes from Tampa International Airport.
