Decent hotel with one glaring problem

Stayed at the Intercontinental for a 10-day period as part of a preliminary house-finding trip for an eventual move to Tampa.

Staff was courteous and helpful, the room itself was quite nice. There was one annoying issue related to the room itself - the door barely fit the doorframe. There was at least a 1.5-2.0 inch gap at the bottom of the door letting light in at night and noise. :( Also, the side of the door had far too large of a gap as well. A weird issue but a troubling one.

The amenities (pool, workout center, business center, lounge and Shula Restaurant) were all quite decent, so no issues there.

HOWEVER, the hotel does have one glaringly huge and super frustrating issue (and one that would lead me to NOT recommend it to most travelers): the wireless internet is simply awful. Slow as molasses on a cold day, frequently disconnecting, and just super under-whelming overall. Plus, the hotel does not offer wired connectivity of a higher speed, like many similarly priced hotels would. I'd give it a 1 out of 10 in this regard. :( I also checked the service on multiple standalone devices just to ensure it wasn't something specific to my computer - same results. Just really, really slow internet.

Free is good (as in Free Internet) but when it's this useless, why bother?

Best Hotel in I've Stayed at in a while. Hands Down

Where can I begin. The check-in was fast and easy. The room was awesome and so were the amenities.

The continental breakfast was a king's buffet. Everything was fresh and delicious. @Shula's

Last, was the rooftop pool. I got a tan and got to go swimming.

BIG Thanks.

Good Value but not Luxury

The parking's convenient & free. An attached parking garage w/ an elevator that brings you right down to the lobby.
Lobby is ok, a bit cheaper-looking than expected from the pictures. Check-in was fast. The room (king deluxe) was small but not cramped. The 'street view' room was reccomended by the staff-- a main highway, gas station and the sounds (Harleys all the time) to go w/ it. Linens were too crisp.Pillows were nice. Furniture had some glass and other stains (looked like some lotion was smeared), nice style but not high quality. Coffeemaker brewed 'brown water.' Bathrobes were thin though a nice surprise along with bathslippers (cheap). Bathroom had no fan (gross) but the sink/vanity was pretty. Provisions (towels, shampoo, soap, bodywash, lotion, conditioner, shoe thing, sewing kit, etc etc were plenty and nice smelling)
Toilet water kept running, had to call 2x to have housekeeping come up, but fixed it well. Then the front desk called 3 times (while we were trying to nap) to make sure the toilet was fixed. Nice flat screen TV and great selction of movies. Bottom line, if you want REAL luxury you'll just have to pay for it but this place is better than mediocre.

OK hotel, but avoid for an event.

We stayed here for my brother's wedding. While the hotel itself is fine and the location good, the catering staff did a dreadful job handling my brother's wedding. A few days before the wedding, they moved the location of the ceremony/reception to accommodate another wedding (a horrible thing to do last-minute, it struck me as quite unprofessional). To top it off, they served cold food and delivered terrible service. Apparently they were more concerned about the other wedding reception than with my brother's reception. You can do much better for less money!
