This hotel is better than average but could use a few tweaks. The lobby is quite impressive, with a lovely wall of glass and cascading water. The same gentleman checked us in both times we stayed there and was very pleasant and efficient. Both times, the rooms were clean and nicely updated but the beds uncomfortable. Unfortunately, the air conditioning... More

The hotel is lovely. The beds comfy. The first night - the 2nd floor room along the atrium was NOISY. We could hear even the front desk telephone ringing! Night two in a hallway room was peaceful. But the coffee maker was broke. The front desk pointed us over to the coffee shop for coffee. Sorry - we are not... More

Pleasant interior, comfortable bed, nice walk-in shower. A bit out of the way - a 10 minute drive to downtown Sarasota, and no restaurants within walking distance. Solid overall value. Will definitely use this hotel again.

This hotel was very dirty. And although it had only been remodled a few yrs ago many of the furniture items were ratty looking. The food is awful and over priced. Be advised this hotel is right behind the airport and you will be breathing jet fuel and listening to planes fly over the hotel. A pile of dog poop... More

we chose the hotel because of the convenience to the airport - it is not a scenic location but it is convenient to shopping and restaurants and a 10 to 15 min drive from downtown Sarasota and beaches. The hotel is fairly new and the room was very spacious. The beds were comfortable and the quality of linens is nice.... More

Stayed at this hotel for four days. It is immaculate and well maintained with a cheerful and smiling staff. One of the waitresses in the restaurant, Chelsea, is the perfect example of a model employee. Her friendly smile and attention to details, like remembering your drink is the type of thing that makes life as a business traveler a little... More

Thank you for a great review and I will be sure to pass your comments on to Chelsea. She works at this property when not attending college and it is always a pleasure having her here. I wish I had 100 Chelsea's quite honestly. We strive for 100% satisfaction. Chelsea helps our staff achieve that on a daily basis. Thank... More

The hotel is beautiful and the layout is one of our favorites. A room on the top floor overlooking the airport is the best. Watching the planes take off and land without the noise is awesome. The beds were comfortable. The indoor pool/hot tub makes the hotel perfect when there's cold weather. Doors open to a pretty courtyard for either... More

The hotel is hip, the staff including Dylan (manager) and Jay (bartender) can't get any better. What ever your needs, just ask. The hotel has such good amenities.The pool is indoor so you can sit outside and soak up the sun and go inside to the pool, hot tub, steam and sauna. Doesn't get much better. The rooms are always...

This is a very nice, modern property. The staff were very hospitable and professional and our room was well appointed. They have a sports bar on property that serves very good craft beer and the food is pretty good as well.
