The desk staff were so friendly & greeted you as you walked in every time. The hotel has nice contemporary amenities. There is an elevator shaft on the ground floor level that has like a waterfall built into it which was so interesting. There is a railed walkway on all the floors that give you a view of the well...

As a long term guest, over 4 months here. Front desk staff, Loren and Andrew are the best. Always smiling and speaks to you as though you were family as you come through the door. Wait and bar staff Jay, carol and Tracy treat you like family, always asking what they can get for you. Love it here!!!!!!

This hotel was amazing. We have teenagers that thoroughly enjoyed this hotel. There's a fire pit out back, really nice gym, pool was great and my son loved the sauna.

I was in the area for work and stayed here for a single night. The hotel has shuttles to and from the airport when you need it so was very convenient!

My family and I stayed here November 15,2014. We booked 2 rooms through Priceline including breakfast. When we arrived the front desk clerk was typing something in the computer, never gave us a proper greeting or welcome. She only asked of we had a reservation. When I gave her my name I asked her if I would get the breakfast... More

My sincere apology that you incurred issues while staying at the hotel. I investigated the issues stated and have made the appropriate corrections where needed. The guest is our first priority and unfortunately the immediate recognition was not there upon your arrival. I could understand the confusion of the breakfast tickets because there are new rate codes for when guest... More

What a wonderful place for our American Sewing Guild Brandon East Bay Chapter to have a 3 day retreat. The hotel was immaculate only a few years old.

I was pleasantly surprised, I did not choose hotel as I was in a group, I thought it may be below average, was I ever wrong.

I am still at this hotel because of the fine service Andrew showed us. We had one more night to book in Sarasota. Upon check--in, Andrew acknowledged me as a Platinum member and it went up from there. He gave us a great upgrade and threw in a couple surprises. Because of this, I booked another night here (a total... More

A surprisingly hip, modern, and fully-featured Holiday Inn (no offense intended to the brand). Lobby and room furnishings showed some real thought. I think my room had more electrical outlets than I have ever encountered, which is a real boon to road warriors with lots of portable electronics. They also had a refrigerator. My room looked out over the fire... More
