The InterContinental is a favorite for business travelers thanks to top-of-the-line meeting facilities and a convenient location in the Westshore business district, a short drive from the Tampa Convention Center. Still, the 323 guestrooms have a relaxed Floridian vibe thanks to a cheerful teal and white color scheme and modern artworks portraying sea creatures and shells, plus mod cons such as minibars, iPod docking stations and coffeemakers. Hit the rooftop pool for a swim, then head to Shula’s Steakhouse for breakfast. Decorated in honor of the 1972 Miami Dolphins’ “perfect season,” Shula’s also serves lunch and dinner, while the No Name Lounge works well for post-meeting cocktails and catching the game on one of five plasma TVs.
In the Area
The concierge recommends heading west toward Clearwater Beach, about 30 minutes from the hotel. After a stroll on the sand, travel down Gulf Boulevard to John’s Pass at Madeira Beach for souvenir shopping. Next, drive to Fort De Soto Park for a swim at one of Florida’s best beaches, and then on to lunch at Fresco’s Waterfront Bistro in St. Petersburg. Spend the afternoon strolling around the Salvador Dalí Museum, home to nearly 100 of the surrealist painter’s works. Back in Tampa, opt for dinner at Italian favorite Donatello, which also features live jazz.
How to Get There
Had a fabulous stay at The westshore grand my fiance and I.Clean rooms, mouthwatering food from Shula's,warm and friendly staff. Last but not least Eula made our stay memorable with as she that sweet treat of a chocolate for us, I must say that cake spoke to my soul and we will be back soon. Great going guys, we loved it.
Bar staff is stupendous. Always there 4 u 4 drinks and conversation. If i lived here would come just to visit bartenders. Best bartenders ever...sean...amy and samantha. They look after guests with professionalism and friendliness. Amazing
Have been staying here for my business trips to Tampa and this hotel has been a perfect place for that. Great location, great service and really comfortable rooms.
They have got everything you look for.
Stayed at the Westshore Grand for a business trip and while at first I was disappointed that they did not have a spa the manager recommended a travel massage therapist who was amazing!!! The rooms are clean, beautiful, and the high beds are like sleeping on fluffy cotton. The rooms do you have a refrigerator but I was disappointed that they do not have a microwave. There is one microwave that you were able to use that is on the ninth floor next to the pool which is a little weird but it worked.
My only disappointment was that I asked for late checkout and was denied, however my colleagues were given the late check out Option. This is why I didn’t give the hotel five stars.
and had cake and a bottle of bubbly delivered to our room. The hotel was exceptionally clean and well located and very shiek. It was my favorite hotel during my Tampa trip. Its walking distance from a Walgreens and the bed is VERY comfortable. The glass elevators are the best! I felt like I was on a TV show.
