Special Weekend Rates!Hey Tampa! Welcome back after a lovely weekend (Ok Saturday and Sunday were lovely, yesterday not so much. And I suppose not everyone had yesterday off...)! Anyway, Lisa here with an update from the Tampa Intercontinental Hotel.

In light of the upcoming Gasparilla Season, the Intercontinental will be offering great discounted room rates! The weekend rates will start at $139 and include deluxe room accommodations and breakfast for two. Weekend nights are Friday and Saturday night. This special will run from January 14th to March 27th. Giving you an opportunity to enjoy the Gasparilla Parade and Festival, the Gasparilla Distance Classic and the Gasparilla Film Festival.

If you haven't been to the Tampa Intercontinental Hotel, you are missing out. They are conveniently located less than 10 minutes from the airport and downtown and they are right across the street from Westshore Plaza where some of the best restaurants in town are. It's a great place to stay for both business and leisure.

What a great way to see and enjoy Tampa Bay Area Events! Especially the ever famous Gasparilla Pirate Festival! To make reservations just head to their website!

That's all for now, but stay tuned for more Things To Do In Tampa Bay, and other Tampa Florida News Updates.
